    I have a Uniden BC 177XLT scanner and need a user manual for it. I noticed that you said you were able to get one for your scanner so I am hoping that you can tell me where I can download a manual for mine. Please help me if you can. Thanks!

    You need to tell what model, each scanner is different, especially Uniden Bearcat models.

That model was the first prototype of the Uniden Bearcat Electra BC780XLT-PPKL88 otherwise known as the BC780XLT. That manual that you got for the XLT model should work just fine, the only difference is that the XLT has more features than the HLT. The HLT came with its own manual, but it wasn't very accurate either, just try to make due with the manual you've got. If you want a scanner that is easier to use, you should get a Regency Touch K500. The Touch K500 can scan up to the 900MHz range and has VHF/UHF/FM/AM/CB/WX/AIR scanning capabilities. It even comes pre-programmed with international channels. It also has an automatic Weather Alert Notifier Bank already programmed into its internal memory. In short, the K500 is the ultimate scanner. However it will be hard to find because Regency went out of business a while back.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: programing for uniden bearcat scanner bc 144xl

danval, I looked up a pic of your scanner and it is pretty straightforward. If it is the 16 channel I was looking at, here is the step by step programming.
1- Push manual button to go to the channel you want to start programming.
2- Enter the freq number in.
3- Push the E button to enter it in the memory.
4- To review what you programmed, push the Review button.
5- Use manual button to step to next channel and start over from #2
That should get you started with the scanning hobby.
The scanner has a Priority button that when activated will stop scanning and go immediatly to the priority channel if someone keys their mic.
If you need freq's (or more of) for your area, go here and click on your state and county and it'll give you a complete listing.

I can't locate information specific to the 210XW, but hopefully this generic Bearcat programming info will help:

1. Press the MANUAL key to advance to the channel that you wish to reprogram.

2. Enter the new frequency, including decimal point.

3. Press the ENTER or E key.

4. Start over with step one to continue programming channels.

Need to know how to put codes in


If your scanner is the BC350C (the section you posted in), here's a link to the owner's manual which will give you detailed programming information:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC350Com.pdf

If you have a different model Bearcat scanner, try:

1. Push MANUAL to stop scanning and advance to the channel that you want to program.

2. Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.015).

3. Press E or ENTER to set the frequency.

4. Repeat the process, starting with 1 above to select the channel.

NOTE: With some Bearcat scanners you may need to press the E or ENTER key before entering your frequency.

These are general steps that work on most recent Bearcat models. If they don't work on yours, try different variations. You can also check Uniden.com -- they may have an online manual that you can download and print.
