A scanner, if used properly, can monitor frequencies as it progresses through them. If you want your scanner to monitor only certain frequencies of your choice, you can set those frequencies as the PRIORITY channels. Example: push PROGRAM then punch in frequency 152.6255 then set the mode (if nessessary) at VHF (very High Frequency) UHF (Ultra High Frequency) or FM (Frequency Modulator) or AM (Amplitude Modulator) etc. You can program as many priority channels as the scanner allows.

Hope this helps!

I tried to program the codes in and it isn't working. What am I doing wrong?


Without knowing what you're doing, it's difficult to tell what you're doing wrong, but the first step is to refer to "frequencies" - not "codes". You didn't mention whether or not you have the owner's manual for your scanner, but that's where the best programming instructions can be found. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BCT7om.pdf

You also need to make sure that you have the current frequencies for your area, and remember - your scanner will not work with trunking systems. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

I have a Bearcat Scanner (Uniden Bearcat BC145X) how do I set up the chainals


The BC350 is a pre-programmed scanner. You cannot program it in the usual manner (direct keyboard entry of each frequency), but you can transfer displayed frequencies in the SCAN or SEARCH mode to a PRIVATE bank. Detailed instructions for operating your scanner are in the factory manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC350Com.pdf

Your scanner is a basic 10-channel "oldie" and it's fairly simple to program and operate. To enter/program a known frequency:

- Power the scanner On
- Press MANUAL to stop scanning
- Press MANUAL repeatedly to advance to the channel that you wish to program
- Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.225).
- Press E to enter the frequency into memory

Press the MANUAL key to advance through the channels, and press SCAN when you're ready to listen.

I don't have the manual for my Uniden Bearcat BC 855 scanner.


You can download/print the complete manual for your scanner by following the link below. It's a free download, and it provides detailed programming instructions. If you're programming a channel that is "empty" (showing 000.0000) just enter your frequency. Empty channels automatically show LOCKOUT but it clears with programming. The squelch setting will vary according to the strength of the signals you receive. Once you start scanning, turn the squelch down until scanning stops and you hear a hissing sound, then turn the control up slowly until scanning resumes.

Programming error BCT8 Uniden


Hello.
Back to answer my own question.
I just found the problem. If you try to program one of these scanners (Uniden BCT8) and you keep getting a "pr9-loc" message every time you try to enter a frequency and "M-LOCK" is showing in the upper right corner of the display press and hold the M-Lock (E) key until it beeps twice and "M-LOCK" disappears from the display. You're now set to program.
Keith.
