Hi select a bank ,Press Hold. Then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency, then press Func and Pgm. The channel number appears. 2. Use the number keys and to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store. 3. Press E to store the frequency into the channel. Notes: • If you entered an invalid frequency in Step 2, Error appears and the scanner beeps three times. Enter a valid frequency. • The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. For example, if you enter 151.473 (MHz), your scanner accepts it as 151.475. • When you enter a frequency into a channel, the scanner automatically turns on the delay function and DLY appears. When delay is turned on, the scanner automatically pauses scanning

How do i program 404 scanner to pick up cell phone frequencies


it wouldn't matter if you could, (scanners have these frequencies blocked out) as these are digitally encoded signals that run on proprietary spread spectrum systems that scanners cant decode

I cant seem to be able to program a frequencies into my scanner. I have a list of local frequencies but the numbers are to large to enter into the scanner to accept. it only holds up to six numbers but...


Frequencies in the range you mention may be part of a trunked system that your scanner cannot follow, but you can still enter and monitor the frequency. Yes, your BC340CRS will handle frequencies with up to five decimal places, as long as the last two digits are 25, 50, 0r 75 (see page 16 of the BC340CRS Owner's Manual). The best programming instructions for your scanner are also in that manual. If you don't have a copy, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

I HAVE A UNIDEN BC80XL HAED HELD SCANER RADIO. MAYBE IM STIPID BUT I CANT GET IT PROGRAMED FOR ANY FREQ. i NEED SOME REALL HELP THANKS


Your first step is to compile a list of active frequencies in your area. You can find a very good database at:
www.RadioReference.com

Next, mark or highlight the frequencies that you want to program, making sure that they will work with your scanner. See your scanner manual for a list of covered frequency ranges. The BC80XLT will hold 50 frequencies.

Once you have the desired frequencies, you're ready to begin:

- Power the scanner ON.
- Press the MANUAL key.
- Enter the channel number that you want to program (01 - 50). If you're going to program the entire scanner for the first time, start with channel 01.
- Press the MANUAL key.
- Use the keypad to enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 146.075). Zeros at the end of the listed frequency need not be entered (e.g., 805.25000 should be entered as 805.25).
- Press the E key to save your program information.
- Press MANUAL to advance to the next channel, then start by entering the frequency.

More detailed instructions are in the factory manual. If you don't have a copy you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Cant get know help to program my scanner


Programming the BC60XLT is simple and straightforward:

- Select the frequency to program.
- Select the channel that you wish to program it into. You can press MAN and the channel number, followed by MAN, or just repeatedly press MAN until the desired channel is displayed.
- Enter the frequency, including decimal point (for example, 156.065). The decimal will display as a dash.
- Press E. The frequency is now programmed into the scanner memory, and you can repeat the process to program any channel.

For more information on your scanner, you can download/print the operating manual here:

Cant seem to get it to pick up local frequencies


Can't really diagnose the problem without more information, but make sure that your antenna is connected properly and that you've programmed frequencies that are active in your area. For a quick function check, program the frequency 162.55, 162.4, 162.475, 162.425, 162.45, 162.5, 162.525, 161.65, 161.775, or 163.275 into your scanner. One of them, probably the first one, will be the primary weather frequency in your area. If the scanner picks up the weather broadcast you'll know that it's working.
