I need to reprogram my Realistic Pro-2023 police scanner. I do not have my local police codes nor do I know how to reprogram it. Help.


PROGRAMMING YOUR SCANNER

For a a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com


1. Turn on your scanner by turning VOLUME clockwise.

2. Press [MANUAL], enter the channel number you want to program, then
press [MANUAL] and [PROGRAM]. The channel number flashes to indicate
you are programming the channel.

3. Enter a frequency.

4. Press [ENTER] to store the frequency. If you make a mistake in Step
3, ERROR appears on the display. Proceed again from Step 3.

5. If you want your scanner to pause after each transmission before
scanning to the next channel, press [DELAY] so that DELAY appears in
the display. See "Using the Delay Feature."

6. To program more channels, repeat Steps 2-4. If you want to program
the next channel in sequence, simply press [PROGRAM] and repeat Steps
3 - 4.

SETTING THE VOLUME AND SQUELCH CONTROLS

Use the SQUELCH control to decrease your scanner's sensitivity to weak
signals. This allows the scanner to receive only the strongest
transmissions.

1. Turn the SQUELCH and VOLUME controls fully counterclockwise.

2. Turn the VOLUME control clockwise until you hear a hissing sound.

3. Slowly turn the SQUELCH control clockwise until the hissing sound
stops.

SCANNING THE CHANNELS

To begin scanning the channels, press [SCAN]. Your scanner scans through
all the channels except the ones you have locked out. Be sure to read the
following sections to get the full benefit from your scanner's special
features.

USING THE DELAY FEATURE

Many agencies use a two-way radio system that might have a 2 second silence
(or more) between a query and a reply. To keep from missing a reply,
program a delay on the channels you identify as operating this way.

To program a delay, select the channel and press [DELAY] so that DELAY
appears on the display. Now when your scanner pauses at an active channel
when scanning, it waits for 2 seconds after the completion of each
transmission on that channel before it resumes scanning.

If you do not want your scanner to pause, select the channel and be sure
that DELAY is not on the display. If DELAY appears on the display, press
[DELAY] to turn it off for that channel.

LOCKING OUT CHANNELS

You can make your scanner scan more efficiently by locking out channels
that you have not programmed. Manually select the channel and press [LOCK
OUT] so that LOCK OUT apperas on the display. This is also handy for
locking out channels that have a continuous transmission. You can still
manually select locked-out channels for listening.

To unlock a channel you have locked, manually select the channel and press
[LOCK OUT] so that LOCK OUT disappears from the display.

NOTE: You cannot lock out Channel 1.

USING THE PRIORITY FEATURE

Channel 1 is designated as your scanner's priority channel. You can turn
on the priority feature so that you do not miss transmissions on Channel 1,
even if you are monitoring another channel.

Press [PRIORITY] so that PRIORITY appears on the display. Now your scanner
checks Channel 1 every 2 seconds, and stays on the channel if there is any
activity.

MANUALLY SELECTING A CHANNEL

You can continuously monitor a specific channel without scanning. This is
useful if you hear an emergency broadcast on a channel and do not want to
miss any details-even though there might be periods of silence-or if you
want to monitor a specific channel.

Follow these steps to manually select a channel.

1. Press MANUAL.

2. Enter the channel number.

3. Press MANUAL again.

Or, if your scanner is scanning and stops at the desired channel, press
MANUAL one time. (Pressing MANUAL additional times causes your scanner
to step through the channels.)

LISTENING TO THE WEATHER BAND

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has allocated several channels
for use by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). We
have preprogrammed your scanner with all of the frequencies available to
NOAA. To hear your local forecast and regional weather information, simply
press [WX]. Your scanner begins scanning through the weather band, and WX
SEARCH appears on the display.

Your scanner should stop within a few seconds, and you hear the local
weather broadcast. If the broadcast is weak, you can press [WX] again
to scan through the rest of the weather band.

IT HAS A MOMENT OF SKIP IN EVERY BROADCAST


The first thing i would check is if the "Priority" function is on. If "Priority is on it will skip everytime it takes a look at the priority frequncy.

Here are the instructions for turning on and off the priority feature.

To turn on the priority feature, press Func + Pri
during scanning. PRI appears. Then the scanner
checks the designated priority channel every
2 seconds in each bank.
To turn off the priority feature, press Func + Pri. PRI
disappears.

Please help me


This could be caused by several problems, try checking if you locked out your scanner's pre-programmed priority banks, also make sure that the squelch control is operating correctly. You could reprogram the scanner and see if it helps. If no avail, send it to your nearest repair store, it could be a receiver malfunction.

Hope this helps!

How do i use an inherited uniden scanner. dad didn't leave instructions.... how do i set it up? which frequency do i use? many thanks


A scanner, if used properly, can monitor frequencies as it progresses through them. If you want your scanner to monitor only certain frequencies of your choice, you can set those frequencies as the PRIORITY channels. Example: push PROGRAM then punch in frequency 152.6255 then set the mode (if nessessary) at VHF (very High Frequency) UHF (Ultra High Frequency) or FM (Frequency Modulator) or AM (Amplitude Modulator) etc. You can program as many priority channels as the scanner allows.

Hope this helps!

Programing for uniden bearcat scanner bc 144xl


danval, I looked up a pic of your scanner and it is pretty straightforward. If it is the 16 channel I was looking at, here is the step by step programming.
1- Push manual button to go to the channel you want to start programming.
2- Enter the freq number in.
3- Push the E button to enter it in the memory.
4- To review what you programmed, push the Review button.
5- Use manual button to step to next channel and start over from #2
That should get you started with the scanning hobby.
The scanner has a Priority button that when activated will stop scanning and go immediatly to the priority channel if someone keys their mic.
If you need freq's (or more of) for your area, go here and click on your state and county and it'll give you a complete listing.

Scanner(POLICE) Question


Hi, using the manual button, step to channel 1 and enter your freq. including the point then press the E button. You might have to step to the next channel using the manual button again. Enter the next freq. and repeat. WX is the weather bands. Lockout is for locking out a nuisance channel(as an example, if someone's mic stays keyed, and keeps the squelch open).Priority is for any channel whose conversations you don't want to miss, just press the button for the specific channel. That way any time someone keys up on your priority channel, even if it's on another channel talking, will go right to the priority one. Review gives you a readout of the freq you programmed into a specific channel. If you need new or extra freq's check here on this site.

Seems to drop off every 3 seconds.


Check if your scanner has been set up to monitor a 'priority channel' whilst scanning. If so then disabling the 'priority' mode will probably stop the regular interruptions that are frustrating you.
Scanners when in priority mode stop what they're doing at regular intervals to check the channel that is set as priority channel to see if it has any activity on it. This is why i think that 'priority' operation fits the issue you are describing.

Hope this helps.
Cheers,
