Why wont my scanner model 60 channel pro-2029 scan


Hi Chad,

Do you have any frequencies programmed into your radio scanner?

If not, then that is why you're not receiving anything.

If on the other hand you do have frequencies programmed, are they the correct frequencies for your location?

Are the frequencies the Tx or Rx frequencies that you programmed, The Tx frequencies are the correct frequencies to program, as Rx is the mobile(usually) Tx frequencies, and unless you're within 5 miles of that mobile, you won't hear it, and you certainly won't hear the base transmissions, unless it's a high powered Simplex Frequency.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Cheers,
Peter

I cant program my bc72xlt hand held scanner



  • Before I list the steps on how to Set up your scanner I will say that I can get some frequencies for you if you list your city, state or zip code. I can also give you a manual upon request, free.

  1. First step is to get some frequencies.
  2. First press the "HOLD" button.
  3. Now enter the number for the channel that you want to store a frequency in.
  4. Now press "func" and "prg" buttons together and the channel will appear.
  5. Now enter the frequencies with the numbers on the keypad, don't forget the decimal [.] .
  6. Now press the "E" button to store the frequency.
  7. Repeat the above steps until you have all frequencies stored you want.
  • If during programming you ever see the word "error" then you entered an invalid frequency.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I HAVE A UNIDEN BC80XL HAED HELD SCANER RADIO. MAYBE IM STIPID BUT I CANT GET IT PROGRAMED FOR ANY FREQ. i NEED SOME REALL HELP THANKS


Your first step is to compile a list of active frequencies in your area. You can find a very good database at:
www.RadioReference.com

Next, mark or highlight the frequencies that you want to program, making sure that they will work with your scanner. See your scanner manual for a list of covered frequency ranges. The BC80XLT will hold 50 frequencies.

Once you have the desired frequencies, you're ready to begin:

- Power the scanner ON.
- Press the MANUAL key.
- Enter the channel number that you want to program (01 - 50). If you're going to program the entire scanner for the first time, start with channel 01.
- Press the MANUAL key.
- Use the keypad to enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 146.075). Zeros at the end of the listed frequency need not be entered (e.g., 805.25000 should be entered as 805.25).
- Press the E key to save your program information.
- Press MANUAL to advance to the next channel, then start by entering the frequency.

More detailed instructions are in the factory manual. If you don't have a copy you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Ki need help programing my p that i bought used also i olnly have some of thehcodes for toulare county (porterville) thiat is where i live.... can yuo help me? thanks, kary ro 82 scanner


Before you start programming you'll need a list of frequencies (not codes). For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

That site also contains a lot of other useful scanning data, including links to users groups.

To program a known frequency into the scanner:
1. Power the unit ON.
2. Press the PGM key.
3. Enter the desired channel number (1-200).
4. Press PGM again.
5. Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (ex: 462.365).
6. Press ENT to enter the data into memory.
7. Repeat steps 2-6 for other channels.

More detailed programming instructions can be found in the scanner operating manual which you can download/print here:

How do you manually program a Uniden BC355C?


Turn on the radio
Press the "band" button
Keep pressing the "band" button until you come within the parameters of the frequency that you want
Let the radio scan until it gets close to the actual frequency that you're looking for
Press the "hold" button and use the arrow "up" or "down" button till you lock in the correct frequency
Once you have the frequency locked in, press the "program" button
Press the "private" button
The unused channel will be flashing
Press the "program" button, this locks the frequency into that channel
Continue this process until all of the frequencies are loaded into the radio

Having major issues with programming my bearcat bc60xlt-1


You'll need to program the radio frequencies into your scanner before it will scan . For a list of frequencies in Anoka County CLICK HERE .
For specific programing instructions for your UNIDEN refer to your owner's manual. They will give you a step by step instruction on how to program the frequencies into your scanner memory (If you need a manual, CLICK HERE
...be sure to select the scanner option on their pull-down menu.
THEN when you have the radio frequencies stored into your scanner, you'll be able to press scan and away you go.
Be sure to adjust the squelch just high enough to eliminate the static...turn the squelch counterclockwise until you hear loud static, then turn Clockwise just enough to silence static...
Let us know if you still have trouble.

I need to program my realistic police scanner.


for your frequency, go to the local radio shack and ask them to look up the frequency. If you have nothing to fear from your local jurisdiction, go directly to them and ask for the frequency. Programming is the easy part and obtaining the frequency not difficult.
