I was given a uniden police scanner and I need to know the frequencies and how to get the static out. . Thank you . Rhonda Hansen


First thing to try is to change the "squelch" setting. If you squelch is set wrong, you will hear static all the time and the scanner may not scan. Turn the squelch until you no longer hear the static and the scanner scans.

My scanner is scanning but nothing is happening,not getting anything at all. Itgoes through all the numbers but is not picking anything up,and it was working fine yesterday.Please tell me what my problem...


Perhaps it's a slow day? Start by turning the squelch all the way down until you hear static. Then, turn it up just enough to cancel out the static. It's possible that it got bumped or change somehow, and now it is blocking out the signals you want to receive.

My scanner scans really slow and does not play any of the frequencies I have they worked before


if the frequencies you had before were police, ambulance, fire ect. then they have all gone onto the new tetra digital system and so you will not be able to pick them up.

if its things like the coastguard, airband, amateur radio that you caan no longer pick up, then the scanner may be faulty.

From memory the pro 97 used to scan fairly slowly anyway, but if its scanning like REALLY slowly, say a channel every couple of seconds, then check the Squelch setting on the scanner

I bought A scanner in victorville and the guy who sold it to me said that it work the thing is that I can not hear anything when police or other people are talking What do I have to do to fix my problem It...


Make sure you have selected the correct frequency range and radio band.

The bands are usually Police/Fire/Air Traffic/Marine/and Short Wave. Depending on your geographic location, you may or may not pick up transmissions.

Also try using the auto-scan feature to seacrh for chat, and adjust the squelch setting so you don''t choke out too much squawk chatter.

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.

If the weather band is working, the scanner should be working. To verify operation:

- Move the MODE switch to "Scanner" and power the unit ON.
- Press the SVC button (chrome button below display).
- Press POL (chrome button below display).
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the left until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise.
- Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the right slowly until scanning resumes.

If the scanner stops on anything - even noise, it's working.

To Program:

- Slide the MODE key to "Scanner."
- Power the unit ON
- Turn the SQUELCH knob to the left until you hear a hissing noise, then turn it the right - slowly - until scanning resumes.
- Press HOLD.
- Press E (PGM).
- Press 0, 1.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter your first frequency, including the decimal point (EX: 156.055).
- Press the E (PGM) key.
- Press the UP arrow (above the SCAN key). Scanner will move to channel 02.
- Enter your second frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press the E (PGM) key.

You should now have two frequencies programmed. Press the SCAN key . . .

If it still will not accept programming, let me know.

Won't pick anything up (uniden BC72XLT)


Not sure this would be a solution but...
Make sure you don't have the Ch. Locked out so it just skips them..

You may also try and let the scanner sit on one frequency that you know has chatter and see if you receive.

This unit also picks up local weather try that feature and you can tell if you reception is working or not.
