Your first step is to compile a list of active frequencies in your area. You can find a very good database at:

Next, mark or highlight the frequencies that you want to program, making sure that they will work with your scanner. See your scanner manual for a list of covered frequency ranges. The BC80XLT will hold 50 frequencies.

Once you have the desired frequencies, you're ready to begin:

- Power the scanner ON.
- Press the MANUAL key.
- Enter the channel number that you want to program (01 - 50). If you're going to program the entire scanner for the first time, start with channel 01.
- Press the MANUAL key.
- Use the keypad to enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point (e.g., 146.075). Zeros at the end of the listed frequency need not be entered (e.g., 805.25000 should be entered as 805.25).
- Press the E key to save your program information.
- Press MANUAL to advance to the next channel, then start by entering the frequency.

More detailed instructions are in the factory manual. If you don't have a copy you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

I have a bc144xl and I don't know how to cancel a frequency so I can put new frequency in. Please Help!!!! Thanks. Chris

There's no need to "cancel" or "clear" a frequency. Just select the channel and program the new frequency -- that will automatically override the old programming. Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

Having major issues with programming my bearcat bc60xlt-1

You'll need to program the radio frequencies into your scanner before it will scan . For a list of frequencies in Anoka County CLICK HERE .
For specific programing instructions for your UNIDEN refer to your owner's manual. They will give you a step by step instruction on how to program the frequencies into your scanner memory (If you need a manual, CLICK HERE sure to select the scanner option on their pull-down menu.
THEN when you have the radio frequencies stored into your scanner, you'll be able to press scan and away you go.
Be sure to adjust the squelch just high enough to eliminate the static...turn the squelch counterclockwise until you hear loud static, then turn Clockwise just enough to silence static...
Let us know if you still have trouble.
