Question about Uniden Bearcat Pro PC68XL 40-Channels Base CB Radio

4 Answers

Bearcat BC-210 I have an old Bearcat BC-210 scanner which seems to work well on the higher Frequencies however at 26.965 to 27.405 range for ch1-40 it will not scan. It's old and the backup battery is probably bad and it only has the small screw in antenna. It does have a place to plug in another antenna. The MFG is actually Electra Co. I want to use it to listen to comments on local road conditions and police and emergency local broadcast. Thanks for the help Regards

    Sounds like maybe you're trying to program frquencies that are out-of-range for the scanner. Be sure you are entering frequencies that the scanner is designed to receive. Also be sure you are entering the frequency correctly, with the "dot" in the right place.

The Bearcat 210 Manual specifically states that the lowest freq available is 32MHz.

I have several radios older than the BC-210 and they are still repairable, as long as you are willing to do it yourself! The statement that it is "... too old to repair" is bull puckey. That LID doesn't know what he is talking about!

Go to the " website and search "BC-210". The following URL may get you there, unless the service manual has been moved.

Gud luck,

Sorry, but the BC210 cannot be programmed for CB frequencies. On the other hand, if you try to program VHF & UHF frequencies within the normal range of the scanner & get "error" on the display, the unit is broken & too old to repair.

Did the BC 210 have the cb freqs??? I don't recall them being able to scan those frequencies. If so, and I'm mistaken, you can always program in the exact frequency you need. I know when the scanner wouldn't scan on the 210, the eeprom was bad and there was no replacement. Good luck

Where can I find an owners manual for a uniden bearcat 210 XLT?

That manual is available free of charge from the Radiopics Database. Go to using the link below (or navigate manually if it doesn't work) and you'll see a blank square where a pic of the front probably should be. Look in the specs box, and at the bottom is a TINY link to the manual. I downloaded it and checked, it definitely works.

Best wishes!

Uniden Bearcat BC 350A scanner won't pick up 800 channels

You BC350A provides coverage of popular bands between 29 and 512MHz, so it is not capable of receiving signals in the 800MHz range. Sorry, but you'll need a different scanner to follow the action.

My bearcat bc-210 wote scan . How do i get it to

From your request I can't tell if the scanner has a problem or if you just need to program the correct frequencies into it. If you need the frequencies for your area, please visit
for an extensive database of active frequencies and systems in your area. NOTE: Any trunked or digital systems in your area cannot be monitored using the BC-210. If your area has switched to these newer systems, you will need to upgrade to another scanner to follow all the action. If you have any other questions concerning your scanner please give us another shout.
