The only way I know to program trunking would be manually one freq at a time unless you can find the software and cable to the unit.

How do you start to program a bct8 800 mz scanner


Programming conventional frequencies into the scanner's PRIVATE bank is simple, but programming trunking systems is a detailed process that will take some research and probably some practice. The best instructions for both types of programming are found in the factory operating manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

How do I program it for triple truncking?


There is no such thing as "dual trunking" or "triple trunking." Such terms are used by manufacturers to indicate the number of trunking systems that a scanner is capable of monitoring. The PRO-95 is designated as a Dual Trunk-Tracking scanner because it is capable of monitoring both Motorola and EDACS systems. Programming a trunking system in to a scanner is a detailed process that requires a bit of research.

For details on active trunking systems in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you have the system information you can follow the programming steps outlined in your scanner's operating instructions. If you don't already have the manual, you can download and print it here:

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.

No clue how to program the scanner !!


Your best choice for software is the BuTel program. You can find it on Butel.com, ScannerWorld.com, or RadioReference.com. Once you have it installed you can download and program both conventional and trunked systems directly from RadioReference.com. I have the BCD996XT with Butel and RadioReference, and the combination works great.

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 you program the bc350c scanner


Conventional frequency programming is fairly simple, but programming trunk systems is more detailed and can't be adequately covered in this forum. Please follow the link below - it will allow you to download/print the manual for your 350c, and the manual will walk you through the programming steps.

Programming Motorola type II system


The BR330T is an analog only scanner. Prince William County's system is 800 MHz digital, which your scanner cannot receive. You can receive the fire department simulcast of "5A" (their fire dispatch channel) on 154.325 in analog mode.
