SOURCE: this is not my product I have a Rca four band

The RCA 16S400 is not a programmable scanner. Rather, it's an old (70's) crystal-based scanner that requires one crystal for each frequency. It covers the VHF-low, VHF-high, and UHF bands, and utilizes Regency type crystals. You can do a Google or Yahoo search for the crystals, but eBay is probably the best, and lowest priced source.

SOURCE: need a manual to program radio freq for a RCA four

Please excuse me if I've already answered your question -- it sounds familiar. The RCA 16S400 is a 70's-vintage crystal based scanner that covers the VHF-Low, VHF-High, and UHF bands using frequency-specific crystals. It is not programmable, but rather requires one crystal for each frequency to be scanned/tuned. It uses Regency-type crystals which can usually be found on eBay at reasonable prices.

Rca rt 2770 programming. My fm radio stations


You can manually program a station by pressing AM/FM to get to the correct radio band. Then tune in a station with the Tuner +/- (the left/right arrow) buttons on the remote. Next press Memory (just below 7) and then a number on the keypad. The number must be entered before the Program Preset number stops blinking. (For FM you can use some 2 digit numbers.) To scan through the stations in memory use the Channel +/- buttons on the remote or the Next/Previous track buttons on the RT2770. You could fill all of the memory slots automatically by pressing and holding the AM/FM button for two seconds. The unit will store the stations that it tunes in in order until the memory slots are full. Note: you do need to have the FM antenna and AM loop antenna connected (and extended for the FM antenna).

Retrevo has the manual for the RCA RT2770 available here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/RCA-RT2770-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/2869dj191/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the PDF.

I hope this helps.

I have a Uniden Bearcat 30 Channel 10 Band Radio Scanner how do I program it when I put in the number it shows error


The ERROR message usually indicates that you've tried to program a frequency outside the scanner's tuning range. The BC60XLT top tuning range is the 512 MHz band, so you cannot tune any 800 MHz frequencies. For further information you can download and print the factory manual, at no cost, here:

I have a Uniden BC60XLT that I can not program because of the L/O and a HOLD being displayed, I enter the frequencies as instructed it gives me an "error" message - I paid a lot of money for this...


The ERROR message usually indicates that you're attempted to enter frequency that's out of the scanner's tuning range. Check the manual for the bands covered by your scanner.

L/O indicates a single channel lockout. To release it, press the L/O key while stopped on that channel.

If the scanner still will not program, try a RESET. To do this, power the scanner OFF. then power it on while holding in the 2, 9, and MANUAL keys. This action will erase all data previously programmed into the scanner and restore it to the original factory settings.

I know how to get the basic channels in my scanner, I just don't know how to get the bands...it's a 30 channel 10 band Uniden BC handheld.


Bands are nothing more than frequency ranges. For example, 108 to 137 MHZ is commonly referred to as the "Aircraft Band," and you just program individual frequencies into the scanner. Some scanners have a band monitor capability, where you push a single button to search the air band, police band, etc. This is normally done by powering the scanner ON, and pressing the desired band key (on some you may need to press MANUAL or MAN before the band key).
You didn't specify the model of your scanner, and I can't give you any more detail without it (You listed your question under the BC60XLT which is a a 10-channel scanner). If this info helps, great. If not, please get back to me with the model number and I'll go into more detail for you.

Am I able to scan a frequency band? for instance scan between frequency 150.200mhz and 160.200mhz? how would I do it?


Oddly, your scanner does not include this feature - which is standard on nearly all scanners. It does, however, let you search pre-programmed services (police,marine, etc.) or search up or down from a designated frequency. To do the latter:

1. Repeatedly press SCAN/MAN until MAN appears.
2. Enter the desired channel number you want to use as a starting point for the tune. Then press SCAN/MAN again.
3. Press TUNE/CLEAR to start tune. PGM appears.
4. Hold down the up or down arrow for about 1 second to tune up or down. The arrow appears and the scanner searches in the specified direction.
5. When the scanner finds an active frequency, it stops searching and displays the frequency.
6. To search for another active frequency, hold down
the up or down arrow for about 1 second.
