Here is a link to a website that lists a bunch of different operating frequencies for the various police and ambulance services in many areas:

http://www.radioreference.com/

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.

When you get there just click on the DATABASE tab and then select the area of the country you live in. The website also has hints on how to program the various models of scanners and a bunch of other useful scanning information.

Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

@cant seem to find south australian police frequences


If you can monitor other frequencies, chances are the south australian police are in radio silence, in other words they are not transmitting as of this time, no need to worry, your scanner is ok, just keep on scanning. Happy Monitoring ;-)

How do i find the 6 pre programmed emergency channels on my bc72xlt scanner. i don't have a manual for this scanner. all i have used it for is nascar races.


Repeatedly pressing the HOLD key will advance the unit through all channels and bring up anything that you've programmed into it, and repeatedly pressing the SVC key will advance the scanner through the preprogrammed services (police, fire, marine, etc.). For more information you can download/print your scanner's manual here:

How to receive dispatch reception on uniden bc72xlt


Most dispatch communications in and around major metropolitan areas are now handled via trunked radio systems which your BC72XLT is not capable of monitoring. Some dispatch, especially fire and EMS, should be available to you, and possibly some police activity. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and services in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

How do i set this POS to raytown missouri police departmentzip code 64133


For an extensive database of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com

If your local PD is using a trunked or digital system you will not be able to monitor them with the BC72XLT.

In case you need information on the programming itself, here's a link to the manual for your scanner:

What channels for scanner


You will have to find out if your local safety systems are analog, digital, analog trunking or digital trunking, then buy the appropriate scanner. Radio Shack can at least let you know that much before you buy a unit. If they have digital trunking, only 1 or 2 models will work, and reception is quite limited.
You can also go to www. RadioReference dot Com and select Florida and your county and find out the info there. okay?

BC72XLT program/scanning problems


1. If you mean on "bank" of channels, then you have locked out the others. To unlock them, place the scanner in "scan" mode & press each button that corresponds to each locked out bank until all are "on", as indicated near the top of the LCD. If you can't scan "bands", meaning all frequencies between 25-54, 118-174 & 406-512 Mhz, you may be stuck in the "capture" mode. Let me know if this is the case (not likely) & I'll coach you through it.

2. No.

3. No.

Channel retriving


scan the frequencies this takes time then there is a hold button to save frequensies
frequensies are pulled by the air using the scanning option when there being used by whom ever but you can go online and do a search of scanner police frequencies easy part but most are going digital encrypted which means you can not get the frequensies
you will only be able to get uhf frequencies

Hi, this is from the manual,
Locking Out Channels
You can increase the scanning speed by locking out channels that have a continuous transmission, such as a weather channel. To lock out a channel,
manually select the channel, then press Func +L/O.
L/O appears.
Note: You can still manually select locked-out channels.
To remove the lockout from a channel, manually
select the channel, then press Func + L/O.
L/O disappears.
I hope this helps you out,,, Mechanic
If you need a manual, go here.
