Question about Radio Communications

Open Question

My 2980r allows any frequency programmed into memory to bleed through any channel I'm listening to it while bleed through and stop scanning.I manually did the programing. Did I do something wrong ?

I'm using this 2980R as a base radio powered by a 30 amp power supply.

How to remove a noisey scanner programmed number

For a temporary fix just press the LOCKOUT key while the scanner is stopped on the noisy channel. For a more permanent fix you can program 000.0000 into the channel, effectively deleting the programmed frequency from the scanner's memory.

How to porgram bc140police scanning radio

First, you'll need a list of frequencies to program into the scanner. The BC140 memory is limited to just ten channels, so you'll need to select your coverage carefully. For a detailed database of active frequencies in your area, visit:
www.RadioReference.com

Once you have your frequency list:
- Power the scanner ON.
- Press the Manual key to stop scanning.
- Select the channel to program (1 through 10) by either entering it on the keyboard and then pressing Manual again, or by repeatedly pressing the Manual key to advance through the channels.
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 156.055).
- Press Enter (E) to save the frequency in the scanner's memory.
- Press Manual to advance to the next channel and enter your next frequency.

When you finish programming, press the Scan key to start scanning.

If you enter an out of band frequency, one that is not covered by the scanner, the display will show E for error.

How to tell what the buttons do?

The HOLD key lets you freeze the scanner on an active channel. For instance, if the scanner stops on channel 3, and there's a lot of action there. you can press HOLD to lock the scanner on that channel until you press the SCAN key. Repeatedly pressing the HOLD key will manually advance the selected channel.

SCAN releases a HOLD asnd will also take the unit out of PROGRAM or SEARCH modes and start it scanning the frequencies that you've programmed.

FUNCTION selects the secondary (lower) function of a key. For example, pressing FUNCTION and then the E (ENTER) key will switch the scanner to Pgm (Programming) mode - which lets you enter and store frequencies into the unit's memory so that you can scan them later.

All keyboard functions are explained in detail in the scanner operating manual, which you can download/print here:

Lost manual and cannot program scanner bc145xl

Hi,
Try these instructions from Wiki.answers

Turn on unit.
Press MANUAL button.
Press MANUAL button again to select the channel you want to program. Note the channel in the display. If there is a hyphenated symbol in the upper left corner the channel has been locked out. Press the LOCKOUT button once to remove the symbol or press the LOCKOUT button to lock a channel out. To find out if there is a frequency programed into that channel, press the PREVIEW button. Each digit of the frequency that is stored in memory will be displayed in the LED display. To program a new frequency into that channel, simply press the digits of the frequency you want, including the decimal point. Press the "E" keypad key to enter it into memory. If you get a "E" displayed in the LED display, the frequency was entered wrong, is not a valid frequency or is out of range for the scanner. Last but least, the scanner is not working properly. If the channel is active, (communications going over it) set SQUELCH to higher number, until you hear the communications or just noise. To set the SQUELCH, select a channel that has only noise and turn it down to the point the noise disappears. You make have to readjust it to your liking. Once you have the channels programed you can select the SCAN button to listen to all the channels or select the MANUAL button to listen to just one channel. If there are channels that you don't want to hear during the scan mode, go to MANUAL and select the channel you don't want to hear and press LOCKOUT button. Then press SCAN again it will only scan channels you want to hear.

Hope this helps.

I get all channels locked out. How do I unlock the channels.

You are pressing the "scan" button in the upper left hand position and getting all channels locked out? Correct?
If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency ###.#### then press "ENTER". Press "PGM"key again and enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies.
When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.
If you need the manual for the radio go to radioshack site and do a search for PRO95 and it will come up in PDF format.
Hope this helps. I have owned the pro 95 for maybe 6 or 7 years and after doing a little programming yesterday the thing is much more to my liking. It scanns quicker and scans the channels I wish to listen to.

Wanted manual realistic 2010scanner

The realistic 2000 series scanners do not have a "VFO" (variable frequency occilator) in the true meaning of the sence. This basicly means that they can only scan the channels or memories that you have programmed.

You can however set a low frequency (like 144 Mhz) and a high frequency (like 145 Mhz) and the scanner will "bounce" between the two, picking up anything in between.

Do you have the operating manual? If not, here is a copy

Turn on your Pro-2010 by rotating [VOLUME] clockwise. (When first turned on, your Pro-2010 may start scanning).
Rotate [SQUELCH] fully counterclockwise. You'll hear a rushing noise from the speaker. Slowly rotate [SQUELCH] clockwise until the noise just stops.
You're now ready to start entering frequencies.

Programming Frequencies
Before programming frequencies, make sure your Pro-2010 is turned on and the SQUELCH is adjusted.
Suppose you want to program Channel 1 to receive 162.55 MHz. Here's how you would do it:

1. Press [MANUAL] and select channel 1. You can do this in two ways:
press [MANUAL] continuously until the Display indicates Channel 1 or
by pressing [1] [MANUAL].

2. Press [PROGRAM] to enter the programming mode.

3. Enter the desired frequency. In this case, press the [1] [6] [2] [.]
[5] [5] keys. Check the display to make sure the frequency it shows
is the one you meant to program. If it is, press the [ENTER] key.

4. To add more frequencies, just press [PROGRAM] to advance to the next
channel and follow the steps above.

5. If you ever want to change the frequency entered for a specific
channel, just enter the new frequency "over" the old frequency using
steps 1, 2, and 3.

Make a mistake while entering the frequency? Just press [CLEAR], enter the correct frequency and press [ENTER]. If you're entering a new frequency in place of an old one, the old frequency won't be "erased" when you press [CLEAR]. It will remain stored on that channel until you correctly enter a
new frequency and press [ENTER].

You'll hear a "peep" sound as you press the various keys. This lets you know the key has been properly "entered" into your Pro-2010.

Using the Scanning Function
Your Pro-2010 will automatically scan all the channels you've programmed and stop whenever it finds a signal. To scan channels, just press the [SCAN] key.
To stop scanning, just press [MANUAL] and you can select specific channels
you want to listen to.

IMPORTANT! Your Pro-2010 won't scan unless SQUELCH is set to the point where no sound is heard if a signal isn't being received.

Delay Function
When your Pro-2010 is scanning, it will stop whenever it finds a signal on a channel. As soon as the signal ends, the scanning function will resume. Most communications heard will be two-way. To make sure you don't miss any replies, press [DELAY]. This will cause your Pro-2010 to stay on a channel for two seconds after the end of a transmission, giving you time to hear any reply. To release the Delay function, just press [DELAY] again. The Delay indicator will show on the display when the Delay function is used.

Lockout Function
You may want your Pro-2010 to "skip over" certain frequencies while it's scanning (such as continuously transmitted weather broadcasts). To "lock out" such channels, follow these steps:
1. Press [MANUAL] to stop scanning. Continue to press [MANUAL] to
advance to the channel you want to lock out.

2. When you reach the channel, press [LOCK OUT]. The display will show
[o] to indicate this channel will be skipped over during scanning.

3. To release the lockout, press [MANUAL] to stop scanning. Advance to
the channel that is locked out and press [LOCK OUT] once again. [o]
will disappear from the display.

If you use the lockout function on all channels, scanning will be impossible - you'll only be able to change channels using [MANUAL].

Speed Selection
Your Pro-2010 will normally scan channels at a rate of four channels per second. If you press [SPEED], channels will be scanned at a rate of nine per second. Press [SPEED] again to return to a rate of four channels per second.

Priority Function
You might want to scan other channels yet not miss a call on a channel of particular interest to you (police, fire, ambulance, etc.). The Priority function will let you scan other channels - but if a call is received on the Priority channel, your Pro-2010 will automatically switch to the
Priority channel!

1. Only Channel 1 can be used as Priority Channel: Key in the desired
Priority frequency into Channel 1.

2. Priority function works only when the unit is in Scan or Manual mode.

3. Press [PRIORITY] to start Priority function. A [P] will appear on the
display.

4. Press [MANUAL] or [SCAN] to listen to other channels. Your Pro-2020
will check the Priority channel and switch to it if a signal is
received on it.

5. To cancel Priority function, press [PRIORITY] again. the [P] will
disappear from the display.

SEARCHING WITH YOUR PRO-2010
One great feature of your Pro-2010 is its ability to "search" for frequencies being used. This means you can hear all the action on the airwaves in your area! To use this great feature, just follow these steps:
1. Press [PROGRAM] key.

2. Press [LIMIT] key. Enter the lower limit of frequency range to be
searched (such as 45.00 MHz). Press [ENTER].

3. Press [LIMIT] key again. Enter the upper limit of frequency range to
be searched (such as 46.00 MHz). Press [ENTER].

4. Press either [up arrow] or [down arrow] to start Search. [Down arrow]
will start search from the highest frequency and go down. [Up arrow]
will start from the lowest frequency and go up.

5. You can control the speed of the search by using the [SPEED] key to
accelerate or to slow down the search.

6. Search will stop when a frequency is found with a signal. To restart search, press [up arrow] or [down arrow]. In Program Mode, search range will be displayed each time [LIMIT] is pressed. It is impossible to change the lower frequency only: to change lower frequency you must change higher frequency first. The higher frequency can be changed any time.

Storing Frequencies
If you want to enter some of the frequencies found during search, do this:
1. Press [MONITOR] when your Pro-2010 finds a frequency you want to store.

2. Use [MANUAL] key to select a channel to enter the frequency your Pro-
2010 found. The display will show the frequency currently stored on
the channel, but don't worry - the old frequency will be erased when
you start to enter the new one.

3. Press [PROGRAM].

4. Press [MONITOR] again. The new frequency found during the search will
be displayed.

5. Press [ENTER] to put the new frequency into the channel in place of
the old frequency.

6. Press either [up arrow] or [down arrow] to resume the search. To
return to manual or program operation, press [MANUAL] or [PROGRAM].
To resume the search from one of the limit frequencies, press [LIMIT]
and then [up arrow] or [down arrow].

Error Indications
Sometimes when you try to enter a frequency for a channel or as a search range limit, you may find an ------ on the display. This means the frequency is in error and you won't be able to enter it into your Pro-2010. Such frequency errors usually mean you've entered a frequency outside the ranges your Pro-2010 operates on (such as 225.00 MHz) or you've put the decimal point in the wrong place (14.682 MHz instead of 146.82 MHz). Check carefully to find your mistake and then press [CLEAR]. You can now enter the correct frequency.

Hope this helps,

Unlocking channels

first press the manual button so you can go through the channels one by one. Then look for a button that has L/O(lock out) push this once for every channel you have a frequency programmed for it, the channel will probably not unlock if there is no frequecy programmed to it.
