  1. Press hold then enter then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency. Then press "FUNC" and "PGM" and the channel number will appear.
  2. Use the number keys to enter a frequency including the decimal point you want to store.
  3. Press "E" to store the frequency into the channel.
  4. Note - If you entered an invalid frequency in step two "ERROR" will appear and it will beep three times. Enter a valid frequency.
  5. The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. ie an entry of 155.174 will automatically be rounded to 155.175
  6. 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.

I cannot figure out how to program my scanner to the fire frequency.


To program any known frequency into your BC72XLT, power the scanner ON, and then:

1. 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 2 seconds after the end of a transmission before scanning proceeds to the next channel. To turn the function off or on, press Func + Dly.
• If you enter a frequency that has already been entered elsewhere, the scanner sounds an error tone and displays the channel that was duplicated. If you entered the frequency by mistake, press then enter the correct frequency. To enter the frequency anyway, press E to
accept.

4. To program the next channel in sequence, press E then repeat Steps 2 and 3.

Sorry if i am posting this more than once,,i am trying to figure this out,,can anyone please tell me where to find free police and fire frequencys at?


Hi again :o)
Log on to RadioReference.com, At the top you will see Database. Click on that and a map of the U.S will show up. Click on a state, and a list of county's will show up. Click on the county and you will see the frequencies.
Here also, is a website that has some links for police and fire frequencies for different states.

http://www.police-scanner.info/police-scanner-frequencies.htm

There are probably other sites as well.
Hope this helps... maybe I should get me one of those!

Having major issues with programming my bearcat bc60xlt-1


You'll need to program the radio frequencies into your scanner before it will scan . For a list of frequencies in Anoka County CLICK HERE .
For specific programing instructions for your UNIDEN refer to your owner's manual. They will give you a step by step instruction on how to program the frequencies into your scanner memory (If you need a manual, CLICK HERE
...be sure to select the scanner option on their pull-down menu.
THEN when you have the radio frequencies stored into your scanner, you'll be able to press scan and away you go.
Be sure to adjust the squelch just high enough to eliminate the static...turn the squelch counterclockwise until you hear loud static, then turn Clockwise just enough to silence static...
Let us know if you still have trouble.

Cannot for the life of me figure out how to program this!


You need to obtain local frequency numbers for your area.
google search, "radio frequencies" and you county, city name...it'll give you lists of frequencies to enter into your scanner..
Your user manual should show you the step by step with which buttons to push... are you having difficulty entering the frequency numbers?

How do i use an inherited uniden scanner. dad didn't leave instructions.... how do i set it up? which frequency do i use? many thanks


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!

UNkown functions on the bc72xlt


1) the words Lo, Hi, Air, and UHF are indicating that you told your scanner to hold on a specific frequency modulation, this is normal, pay it no mind.
2) these numbers represent sub-frequencies that are encoded into the scanner's frequency ID decoder. These numbers can also sometimes identify the frequency's pre-programmed bank number.
These problems are all basic functions of your scanner, I hope this answered your questions.
