Question about Uniden BC60XLT-1 Handheld Scanner
I have an older scanner and it was programmed for my local area, I am not sure what happened but now there is nothing programmed anymore. How can I get the programming back?
Some scanners have a capacitor inside which slowly discharges to keep your programs safe .it depends on make modal and how old

The scanner was probably turned off and it forgot what frequencies were programed into it. Older scanners have a problem with retaining their memory when they are shut off. Most of the older scanners have a memory back-up battery that helps the scanner retain its memory. Check and see if this battery is still good. As for your frequencies, you'll have to reprogram the scanner. To put it in technical terms, some older scanners have what is called RAM (Regency Alterable Memory) and ROM (Regency Organized Memory), when you turn off you scanner, this memory is erased, along with your programmed channels. Be sure not to turn off your scanner unless you're willing to reprogram the scanner.
