    How exactly is your scanner screwed up, is it not scanning, or are the frequencies locked out or what? Reply with a valid clarification and I might be able to help you.

Hello my name is kathy, I think you will need to go through it manualy and make sure that you still have all your frequency # is in it, If not you will need to put them back in. If there is there you may have locked them out, or try and hit the scan button. If you would like help on any of them let me know. k.ditterline@yahoo.com

Uniden police scanner


Hi,

Yes they are a great digital radio scanner, not POLICE scanner,

Police around the world are fed up with people using these to listen in on their operations, and are progressively moving to digital mode, but a mode that these scanners wont pick up, P25 or not.

There are many other things to listen in on, and it doesn't involve the law, fire, ambulance services.

If you're in a country or state or city where these services have gone to digital mode, then you're out of luck, you will not here anything on their frequencies.

But that's what happens when silly people use these radios in pursuits or any other way that hinders the service from doing the duties.

I feel no pain for your loss.

Cheers,
Peter

How do you program a bcd 396t digital scanner


Hi David,

I don't know if you've found an answer to your query yet, but here goes:
Q1. Dowload the user manual, if you don't have a copy.
Q2. How do you obtain a copy?
Q3. Read instructions CAREFULLY, very tricky for a novice.
A1. Join yahoo group specific to the BRAND/MODEL of your unit or www.uniden.com and follow the links
A2. As above
A3. The manual describes in plain english the steps required under direct entry programming.
These units are the best uniden has made, especially for listening to P25 comms, if you're into that kind of listening.

I hope this is helpfull, I would have given you programming instructions myself, but it's quite involved and we don't have the space here.

Cheers,
Peter

I have pro 135 from radio shack. How do I reset it and keep the channels that are programed in it?


The RESET function will clear everything that you have programmed into the scanner and restore original factory settings. You can, however, restore the 150 pre-programmed frequencies after a RESET.

To RESET:
- Power the scanner OFF.
- Hold down the 2, 9, and PSE keys and power the scanner ON.
- CLEAr appears on the display as the scanner resets.
- Do not power the scanner OFF until CLEAr disappears from the display.

To restore the original 150 pre-programmed frequencies:
- Turn the scanner power OFF.
- Hold down the 3 and ENT/PGM keys and power the scanner ON.

I just aquired a Regency R 4010 portable scanner and am looking for the frequency range and programing instructions.


Turn scanner on.
Make sure Key Pad is set to ON.
Press the manual button until the Channel display shows the channel you want to program (i.e. 1 thr 10)
On the key pad enter the freqency and hit the E key when done.
Hit the Manual key to select the next Channel you want to program.
Repeat process.
When finished hit the scan button.
If you want to see what freqency is programmed for a channel hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the Review button.
If you want to lockout a channel (i.e. a channel that continuously broadcasts like the National Weather Service, hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the L/O button. Hitting it again will unlock the channel.

Trunking frequencies


Did you initialize your scanner? If you did, then you also deleted your trunking banks (1-9). These are the banks that store the channels that were inputted by you. The scanner will display "All channels locked out," when all of these banks are empty. You may have to put the frequencies in again. I suggest using win97. There is a 30day trial. This is the only program that I know of that will work with this scanner.

The pre-programmed channels should still be there. If you press and hold the scan button for a couple of seconds you should see the signal stalker running.

Good luck.

Hwy pre-programmed frequencies


Unfortunately, I think this is a common problem with these radios. I have a brand new BCT8 and it started to not receive anything on the pre-programed highway patrol after using less than a month. Unfortunately the best bet would be to contact Uniden which they will probably tell you to reload the firmware (which won't solve the problem) or send it to them to fix.

Channels locked out


Mrs. Santa brought me a new PRO-97 yesterday. I'm new to this - just wanted an aircraft frequency scanner, but got the whole shameal. I had a bad AC adapter and attempted to fix the power problem as directed in the manual by re-initializing the scanner. That blew all memory away.

I received the feared All Channels Locked Out message and through a little research and fiddling, realized the scanner was pre-programmed. An Addendum came with the scanner with instructions to reload the 155 pre-programmed frequencies:
1) Turn off the scanner and then turn it on again.
2) When 'Multi-system Trunking Scanner' appears, press PGM.
3) Press 1.

This will reload the pre-programmed frequencies erased by the re-init. Press scan and it'll be as new as outta the box!

Best wishes,
Farnk

Programming Motorola type II system


The BR330T is an analog only scanner. Prince William County's system is 800 MHz digital, which your scanner cannot receive. You can receive the fire department simulcast of "5A" (their fire dispatch channel) on 154.325 in analog mode.
