Why does my moonraker cb change channels by itself.

This can be caused by RF feedback. RF is radio frequency energy - the same energy that your transmitter puts out onto the coax cable & antenna.

RF feedback is similar to audio feedback in that some of the output re-enters the circuit in a place it doesn't belong or is designed. RF feedback is a direct result of a poorly matched antenna system as shown by an SWR meter. A standing wave ratio or "SWR" of 2.0:1 - 2:5.1 (read this as: two point zero to one and two point five to one) or greater is generally accepted as the worst SWR a transmitter can tolerate - but also requires lowering RF power (wattage) to continue transmitting.

Some common sources of high SWR are: 1) wrong cable type (usually a 50 ohm cable is used), 2) damaged cable, 3) untuned antenna, 4) damaged previously tuned antenna, etc. The SWR of an antenna system should be checked and adjusted as needed to assure maximum power transfer to the antenna. If the system has a high SWR, the antenna reflects some of the RF energy back on the coax - into the radio. The effects can be tingles / burns on the lips - if using a mic with a metal guard, noise, and erratic operation of some rig settings. This energy is unexpected and can cause all sorts of strange radio operations and is not an uncommon occurrence in a situation such as this.

You can correct this problem by purchasing or borrowing an SWR meter or bridge designed to work in the range of frequencies that your CB uses. Follow the directions included to lengthen or shorten antenna elements as needed. An ideal SWR is 1.1:1. Generally, any value of SWR less than 1.5:1 is considered very good. A check of SWR on the low, mid and highest frequencies will give you an idea as to how well the antenna works on the frequencies you use, and let you know which frequencies you should avoid.

Good luck!

How can i program my scanner i've got the codes but dont know how to program it

To enter a known frequency (they're not codes) into your scanner:
- Power the unit ON
- Press the MANUAL key
- Enter a channel number (01 - 30)
- Press MANUAL
- Enter the frequency, including decimal point (e.g., 438.065)
- Press E

More detailed programming is outlined in the scanner operating instructions, which you can download and print here:

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.

• 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

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