Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Hello, the good news, though, is that all Uniden/Bearcat scanners in
the 14X series are nearly identical in features and operation, so you
can follow the link below to download/print the manual for the BC148XLT:
You need adobe reader to read the content.

A number of scanner manuals can be found online however I don't know the difficulty of finding it for this unit. More than likely if you need printed material sent to you it will cost you.
To program the BC142xl 10-channel scanner:
Press the Manual button. Continue to keep pressing the Manual button until you are at one of the ten channels you wish to program the frequency into
Press the E button
Enter the frequency you want to store in this channel
Press the E button - Your frequency is now stores in this channel.
To later see what frequencies you have stores use the Review button.

The manual isn't online to my knowledge however I did find a guide on how to program it.
"Turn it on. Push the "MANUAL" button to stop it from scanning.
Push number 1, then push "MANUAL" again. This should leave you on
Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
"E." Press "REVIEW" at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the LED readout
display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the list
of acceptable frequencies in the Frequency Range Bands below.
Push "MANUAL" to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push
"E." Push "MANUAL" to step to channel three. Repeat this process until
all the (10) channels are full, or you've run out of frequencies to
Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.
Frequency Range Bands:
20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)
450 to 470 MHz (UHF Standard Band)
470 to 512 MHz (UHF "T" Band)"
Hope this helps.
