If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

Programming the BC248CLT is fairly simple, and detailed instructions can be found in the factory manual that you can download and print here:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC248CLTom.pdf

What you can program and what you can hear will depend on your location. Many communities now use trunking systems and digital (APCO-25) systems, and your scanner is not compatible with either. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and systems in your area, visit:

I have a bc145xl and i dont know how to put in my frequency channels i got


I couldn't locate a manual for you, but the 16-channel BC145XL is a fairly typical Uniden scanner.

Turn the scanner power ON.

Press the MANUAL button to stop scanning.

Press the MANUAL button repeatedly to advance to the channel that you wish to program.

Enter the frequency that you wish to program, including the decimal point. Frequency range of your scanner is 29-54, 136-174, and 406-512MHz.

Press E (Enter) to cpmlete the process.

To continue programming, press MANUAL to advance to the next channel, and start the steps again.
