You can enter up to five decimal digits, but the 4th and 5th are limited to 25, 50, or 75. These do not show as full sized digits during programming, scanning, or searching, but should be displayed as small digits to the right of the full-sized numerals - as shown on page 15 of the operating manual. I hope this helps.

Try to enter a frequenci but do not allow me to enter all numbers ex 154.38500 only allow me to enter 154.385


The zeros at the end of the frequency are meaningless (154.385 is the same as 154.385000), so the scanner drops them. You can enter up to five digits after the decimal, but after the third digit it will only accept "25" "5" or "75", and these will display as small digits to the right of the third decimal. -- see the display on page 16 of your owner's manual. I hope this helps.

I'm having problems programming radio frequencies on my scanner.


You didn't mention the make or model of your scanner, so I can't provide a response specific to your unit, but the trailing zero is meaningless, so there's no reason to enter it. Some bands on some scanners will only accept three decimal digits, but the scanner should round off your entry and still receive the intended frequency.

Cant get a answer on how to program my pro-97 scanner


here is a quote from the manual; hope it helps you.


1. Press MAN, enter the bank (0-9) and channel number (00-
99) where you want to store a frequency, then press MAN
again. M and the bank and channel number appear at the
upper left corner of the display (for example: M000).
Press FUNC. Then press e or d. The bank number moves in
the direction of the arrow pressed.
Press FUNC. Then hold down e or d. The bank number
moves continuously in the assigned direction.
Press e. The channel number moves upward one by one.
Or, press d. The channel number moves downward one
by one.
2. Press PGM. M changes to P.
3. Use the number keys and ./DELAY to enter the frequency
(including the decimal point) you want to store.
If you make a mistake, press CL to delete a single digit or press
and hold CL about 2 seconds to delete all digits.
4. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel.
If you made a mistake in Step 3, Invalid Freq. briefl y
appears and the scanner beeps when you press ENT. Start
again from Step 3.
Your scanner automatically rounds the entered frequency
to the nearest valid frequency. For example, if you enter a
frequency of 151.553, your scanner accepts it as 151.550.

  3. Press LIMIT (SRC). Hi and 1300.00 MHz appear. 1300.000 MHz is the upper limit of the scanner's range.
  4. Enter the frequency that is the upper limit of the range you want to search (including the decimal point), then press E (SVC) again.
  5. Press \/ to search from the upper to the lower limit or /\ to search from the lower to the upper limit.
  6. While the scanner is searching or is on a transmission, press H/S.
  7. HYPER should disappear from the display.

  2. Enter the frequency you want to start from using the number keys. (Press . to enter a decimal point). NOTE: To start the search from a frequency already stored in one of your scanner's channels, press MAN or PROG. Then use the number keys to enter the channel number and then press MAN or PROG again. If you enter an invalid frequency, the scanner displays Error. Press MON/CLR (.).
  3. Press \/ to search downward or /\ to search upward from the selected frequency. -d-, SEARCH, and either \/ or /\ appear.

Hello bettyduke, here is the manual for your radio, the info you need is on pg. 11 and 12.
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC248CLTom.pdf

On my 248 I just manually go to whatever channel I want to program, then punch in the freq. # including the decimal point. Then push a button that says E or enter and wa-laa it's in the memory.

Here is a list of freq's for whatever state and county you live in,,,

Reprograming


Hi, looks like page 24 of your manual covers that part.
1. Press PGM. PGM appears. Then enter the channel number (1-200) where you want to store a frequency, then press PGM again.
2. Use the number keys and DELAY/. to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel.Your scanner automatically rounds the entered frequency down to the closest valid frequency.For example, if you enter a frequency of 151.473, your scanner accepts it as151.470.
If you need a new manual, you can download it here.
