Your radio is not capable of recieving air band frequencies. It will only receive 4 bands consisting of: 26 - 54 MHz; 68 - 88 MHz; 137 - 174 MHz and 380 - 512 Mhz.

The VHF airband uses the frequencies between 108 (just above commercial FM radio) and 137 MHZ (just below 2 meter Ham radio). Amplitude Modulation ("AM") is the mode that transmissions are made. The lowest 10 MHz of the band, from 108-117.95 MHz, is split into 200 narrow-band channels of 50 kHz. These are reserved for navigational aids such as VOR beacons, and precision approach systems such as ILS localizers

What does it mean when it says 'OUT OF BAND'when I try to put in the code?


It means the frequency you are trying to put in, is not within the band you are connected to.

Wiki describes it thus

37px-wiktionary-logo-en.svg.png Look up out-of-band in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. Out-of-band is activity outside a defined telecommunications frequency band, or, metaphorically, outside some other kind of activity

Can I reprogram my tk-2400 with my PC?


No. It is programmed from the Factory on a chip. Preprogrammed. No software will change it, no hacks. Many Motorola radios like that too. It is two watts, Vhf of Uhf, you did not say. If your existing frequencies are Business Band and in the same frequency band (Vhf or Uhf) you can get it to match those.

Radio shack pro 135 want to scan only one band



  • Now if your wanting to scan one bank or your radio and the stored frequencies are still separated in different bands (banks) then just push the number on the keypad that you want to not scan. The number on your screen will show the banks that are active. Do this until only the bank you want to listen to is visible. To scan them again just press the corresponding number again.

I have this mobile from saudi arabia, and when i came to usa the phone isn't working (no network)


hi there, i guess your phone has a different GSM frequency band, this is the frequency band of middle east: GSM-900, GSM-1800 and EGSM/EGSM-900
This is the frequency band of Unite states
GSM-850 and GSM-1900
This is why you don't have signals. thanks

Why can't i listen to aircraft pilots & tower on my Uniden bearcat BC60XLT-1? Our airband frequency here is 108-137 mhz.


Your scanner does not receive frequencies between 54 and 137 MHz, and there's nothing you can do to enable reception in that block. Your only option is to purchase a scanner with air band coverage. Here are the reception ranges of the BC-60XLT-1:

29.0-29.7 MHz 10 Meter Amateur Band
29.7-50 MHz VHF Low Band
50-54 MHz 6 Meter Amateur Band
137-144 MHz Military Land Mobile
144-148 MHz 2 Meter Amateur Band
148-174 MHz VHF High Band
Above bands in 5 kHz steps
406-420 MHz Federal Government
420-450 MHz 70 cm Amateur Band
450-470 MHz UHF Standard Band
470-512 MHz UHF "T" Band
Above bands in 12.5 kHz steps

I know how to get the basic channels in my scanner, I just don't know how to get the bands...it's a 30 channel 10 band Uniden BC handheld.


Bands are nothing more than frequency ranges. For example, 108 to 137 MHZ is commonly referred to as the "Aircraft Band," and you just program individual frequencies into the scanner. Some scanners have a band monitor capability, where you push a single button to search the air band, police band, etc. This is normally done by powering the scanner ON, and pressing the desired band key (on some you may need to press MANUAL or MAN before the band key).
You didn't specify the model of your scanner, and I can't give you any more detail without it (You listed your question under the BC60XLT which is a a 10-channel scanner). If this info helps, great. If not, please get back to me with the model number and I'll go into more detail for you.

Samsung SGH T309 IEMI: 35783500 247603 2 02, acquired in US want to operate in India at Airtell network. With a Airtell sim card it keeps on searching the network. It works with a sim card of Idea Cellular...


it will automatically change to the band frequency that is being used by the sim card. There's no need to set it manually as long as your phone support that frequency. Be sure that in India there is a network provider the will work for your type of sim.

Realistic pro 2020 scanner


The Realistic PRO-2052 is an old (vintage) scanner receiver with fixed AM and FM modes on the bands it cover, as specified by the U.S. band allocation. The PRO-2020 covers only the VHF and UHF frequencies and modes AM and FM is not user selectable. Frequencies can be programmed into any of the 20 memory channels

U.S. Coverage: (varies from state to state and other countries. We don't use 30-50 Mhz here in the Philippines for 2 way mobile communications, except for cordless phones)

30-50 Mhz Lower VHF at FM narrowband only (covers mobile, emergencies, businesses, etc. and
cordless phones)
108-136 Mhz Aircraft band at AM narrowband only
138-174 Mhz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (2 meter band)
410-512 MHz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (70 cm band)

If you're trying to select AM or FM for a specified frequency, I'm afraid you can't do that as it is not selectable.

If you are trying to program AM Broadcast frequencies (mediumwave (MW) or FM Broadcast frequencies (FM radio stations), those were not covered by your PRO-2020's microprocessor. Even if you modify your scanner to receive those bands, you will not hear radio transmission properly since the receiver do not decode FM wideband, which is the standard mode for FM broadcast and Television band.
