My squelch button stopped working on the BC898T Base Scanner


Trunking is designed this way. You wouldn't want to listen to the control channel data, or you would never hear any of the actual radio calls. It sounds like it is working as it should.

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...


If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

How to program a radio shack pro 163 police scanner


The 163 is a trunking scanner, so programming instructions are long and detailed, and they vary for each type of trunking system. Programming instructions are best explained in the factory operating manual. If you don't already have it, you can download/print the manual here:

http://www.scancat.com/OnLineHelp/OEM_Radio_Owners_Manuals/PRO-163-164-OWNERS%20MANUAL_2000164_PM_EN.pdf

You may also want to join a users group for the 163. Check Yahoo or just Google PRO-163.

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

www.RadioReference.com

The site also has information that explains the workings of trunking systems, links to users groups, and a lot of other useful scanning information.

Codes to reprogram


Do you mean the frequencies to listen to, or how to program it. Radio Shack has the programming directions, but the frequencies are local to you. This is not a digital scanner nor a trunked scanner, in which case, if your local PD/FD switched to a trunked system or digital trunked system you will need a new scanner. You should be able to program in your local weather radio channel, like 162.550 to test the unit though.

I am trying to program my Uniden BCT8 to track LTR systems but having problems.


LTR systems must be entered in a specific order so that channel 1 is 1st, channel 2 is 2nd etc...
Are you sure that the BCT8 tracks LTR systems? A Radio Shack PRO 92 tracks all 3 trunking systems (analog) including Motorola and LTR, while some Uniden only track 1, and some don't do trunking systems at all.

How do I program conventional frequencies into my Uniden BC898T? I have Motorola TypeII Digital Tunking frequencies programed into Bank A and EDAC Digital Trunking frequencies programed into Bank B


Just go to Bank C or anything after that and start entering -- one channel, one frequency. It's kind of cumbersome to do by pushing the keys, but it works. An alternative is to use the BuTel software. It will simplify programming and give you Virtual Control of the scanner through your computer.

If this helps, please give us a rating. A "very helpful" would be greatly appreciated.

When scanning the radio resumes before end of transmission


The manual states that the scanning will halt whenever the squelch is broken by a transmission, just as expected. When the transmission is complete, the radio continues scanning. This makes hearing any reply nearly imposible to monitor - and is the problem I believe you are describing.

Page 37 of the manual says that a 2 second delay can be assigned to a frequency whenever the radio has paused on a channel. Simply press the DELAY key on the scanner to assign the delay to the channel. If there is no additional transmission within 2 seconds, scanning will resume.

Below is a copy of the manual to reference or print if you can't find yours (you'll need a free program called "Adobe Reader" found at www.adobe.com to view or print this manual).

I hope this helps!
