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.

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:

This is not my product I have a Rca four band scanner (old) model # 16S400 need a manual for programming freq


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.

Uniden BC350C Scanner


Start by pressing 'band' & select the band that the freq you want to program is within by using the 'up' or 'down' button, then press 'search' , when you see the display getting close to the desired freq, press 'hold' & then use the 'up' & 'down' buttons to zero in on it. Then press 'program', then press 'private' & select the channel you wish to put it on (1-50). Repeat this process as needed. I find it's easier & faster to program all the freqs within a band as you can assign them to whatever channel you wish within the 50 in the private bank, then do the other bands. Hope this clarifies it, good luck. Regards from Community Communications in Wanaque, NJ.

Programin the codes in a bc60xlt bearcat scanner


I am not familar with that model scanner but all the uniden radios I have used have direct freq entry......Hit manual button, select what channel you wish to enter it in, hit manual again. Enter the freq desired, then hit enter. That should enter the freq in that channel space. Hit enter again to go to the next channel for programming. Hope this helps.

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.

Do you have a list of correct freq's for your area?
Make sure you have the scanner set on the correct mode (am/fm/ct/dc) for the freq's you have programmed. Each area of the country have their own individual freq. so their not stepping on each others transmission.

Pro-97 scanner recieving problem


try going to a urban area and scanning the NOAA band. if that works your programming is wrong and there is nothing wrong with your AM/FM base band. also the BNC antenna connector on the inside is notorious for breaking away from the board, nothing a little solder cant handle. Also make sure your local freq's are not Digital
