That is because police are using scramblers to decrypt their transmissions and using more digital transmissions. In order to pick up the conversations, you must find a programmable scanner and have a scrambler modification made. You will find that its nearly impossible to buy a scanner off the shelf that will pick up police anymore. Check with your local neighborhood radio expert to see if they can help

I was given a uniden police scanner and I need to know the frequencies and how to get the static out. . Thank you . Rhonda Hansen


First thing to try is to change the "squelch" setting. If you squelch is set wrong, you will hear static all the time and the scanner may not scan. Turn the squelch until you no longer hear the static and the scanner scans.

I have a handheld Uniden scanner that is several years old. BC80XLT. My police channels went digital, but emt, fire, etc stayed the same . Do I have to buy a new scanner to get my police or can I get...


If your locals went digital they are probably using trunked systems as well. Sorry, but there is no way to convert or modify your scanner to let you monitor the new systems. You'll need to pick up a trunking/digital scanner such as the Uniden BCD996XT. Programming the trunked systems is a real task, so I recommend that you purchase the Butel ARC XT PRO software and a subscription to RadioReference.com. The combination will let you research the systems in your area, decide which ones you want to monitor, and download them straight to your scanner.

Scanner not picking up local police-Fire freq


Do you still receive NOAA weather frequencies? Sounds like your local agencies have switched from simplex/standard frequency operation to trunking. I suggest you visit www.RadioReference.com to view the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area.

Can not get our police channels to scan, the fire and ambulance work


If your scanner previously picked up your local police communications, it's possible that their system has been upgraded to a new trunked radio system - a system that your BC370CRS is not capable of monitoring. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and systems in your area, visit:

Motorola k7gt9500 police channel in manassas virginia?


Your Motorola radios operate in the FRS/GMRS band, which is at 462 MHz. Police, fire, EMS services, etc. operate in the 150 or 800 MHz bands. Your radios cannot receive public service transmissions, and they cannot be modified to do so. Monitoring public service transmissions will require a scanner.

I cant get it to pick up the police what do i


First you need to know what type systems and what frequencies are in use in your area. If your local law enforcement agencies have switched to trunking systems, as many communities have, your scanner will not be able to receive/follow them. You should, however, still be able to pick up fire, EMS, etc. For system descriptions and active frequencies, visit RadioReference.com and/or CityFreq.com.
