A programming ERROR message frequently means that either you have neglected to enter a decimal point in the frequency OR that you have attempted to enter a frequency that is out of range for the scanner. It could, of course, mean several other things, especially with a trunking scanner. Here is a link to the owners manual for this scanner:

I have a Uniden Bearcat 30 Channel 10 Band Radio Scanner how do I program it when I put in the number it shows error

The ERROR message usually indicates that you've tried to program a frequency outside the scanner's tuning range. The BC60XLT top tuning range is the 512 MHz band, so you cannot tune any 800 MHz frequencies. For further information you can download and print the factory manual, at no cost, here:

Im just getting a error on my screen when i put in frecuiencies on my pro135

The ERROR message normally indicates that you've entered a frequency that's out of the scanner's tuning range. Check your manual to confirm that your frequencies are within the unit's reception capabilities. If the freq is in range and the problem continues, you may need to RESET or INITIALIZE the scanner to restore it to its original factory settings.

To RESET the PRO-135:
1. Power the scanner OFF.
2. While holding in the 2, 9 and PSE keys, power the scanner on. The process takes about 3 seconds to complete.

To INITIALIZE the scanner:
1. Power the scanner OFF
2. While holding in the 3, ENT, and PGM keys, power the scanner ON.
NOTE: The INITIALIZE process will delete/erase all of the information that you've programmed into the scanner.

I have a uniden bearcat scanner model#bc148xlt and it seems to not want to take the local frequencys and it comes up error when you hit the enter or e button

You didn't mention what frequencies you're trying to program. BC148XLT coverage ends at 512 MHz, so you will get the error message if you try to program anything above that. Also, you must be sure to include the decimal point when programming a frequency into the scanner. I hope this helps.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

With the channel display showing 000.0000 you may be able to program a new frequency into it, and the new program will release the lockout. Have you tried the normal programming for any channels?

What steps do i take too program frequences. what are the frequences for charlotte north carolina?

with the scanner on, push the "man" (manual) button. If the scanner was scanning it should stop on one channel . Push the up or down arrow key until you get to the channel you want to program. You can also use the keyboard for direct access to a particular channel i.e. push "1" "4" "9" and "man" to jump to channel 149.

Once on the channel you want to program, push "prog" (program) then the frequency you want in that channel, including the decimal point. Push "ent"(enter). Your desired frequency should be displayed. Don't forget the "." (decimal point) or the scanner will tell you "error". Move to your next hannel to be programmed and repeat. If you put in a frequency outside of the radio's capability, you wil get an error message.

To find frequencies, look on the internet. The best site I have found is .

Cant program frequencies into my uniden bc72xlt scanner

Just to verify you are trying to program frequencies the scanner is able to receive.
This unit is limited to the following freq range.
50.0-54.0 5
148.0-174.0 5
470.0-512.0 6.25

If the frequencies your are trying to enter or outside these bands you will get a error.

Next Direct Entry Mode Programming
Press Func. + PGM
Press E to enter ch in current location
To change location pres func + Up ^ or down key to choose location then press E
Enter your freq then press E

Hope this helps.

Programming error BCT8 Uniden

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.
