SOURCE: Scanning programmed channels

Not exactly. You can program channels however into the Private bank. To do so though you must search for the channel first...This may simply mean going to a channel you already know by using the band button to start searching...Push the hold button to stop it close to the frequency and then use the arrow keys to get to the exact frequency. then push the Prog button. After pushing it, push the Private button (you will see CH next to the frequency) using the arrow keys select the channel you want to store on and push Prog again. To scan the stored channels simply push the private button...Done! It can be a tedious process...expecially with 50 channels....but It's the only way I know how to do it...Good luck!

Yes that sounds like the case. Every scanner or radio I've ever delt with that is the way it works. Check user manual on how to turn off and on banks. Good Luck.

Just go to Bank C or anything after that and start entering -- one channel, one frequency. It's kind of cumbersome to do by pushing the keys, but it works. An alternative is to use the BuTel software. It will simplify programming and give you Virtual Control of the scanner through your computer.

If this helps, please give us a rating. A "very helpful" would be greatly appreciated.

I have a uniden bc75xlt. The kids did something to it and when you cut it on it says all lockout. How do I fix this?


if you have accidentally locked out all channels in a bank, and just want them all to be unlocked, you can hold down the LO key for 3 or more seconds and the whole bank will be unlocked without having to step through them.

Another way for this to occur is if you toggle on a bank that has no programming in it (all zeros - anything all zeros is locked out automatically), AND have toggled OFF all banks that DO have programming in it.

Of course if you haven't done any programming at all, you are limited only to searching, and not scanning.hope this helps.good luck.

How do i program frequencies into my uniden bearcat scanner bc350a


The BC350C is a factory pre-programmed scanner, so you cannot program it in the standard manner - entering frequencies via the keyboard. You can, however, transfer a displayed frequency from the SCAN or SEARCH mode into the PRIVATE bank. Details for doing this are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC350Com.pdf

The BC350 is a pre-programmed scanner. You cannot program it in the usual manner (direct keyboard entry of each frequency), but you can transfer displayed frequencies in the SCAN or SEARCH mode to a PRIVATE bank. Detailed instructions for operating your scanner are in the factory manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:

How can i program a higher frequency on this scanner


Top end on the 350C is 956MHz, and it won't go any higher, no matter what you do. You may know it already, but the 350C is not capable of "standard" keyboard programming - direct entry of a frequency via the keyboard. Rather, you must locate an active frequency using the SEARCH or SCAN mode, and then transfer it into the PRIVATE bank (bank 7). Detailed instructions for doing this are found in the owners manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:
http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC350Com.pdf

How do you manually program frequencies into the private list?


As evidenced by the lack of a numerical keyboard, your scanner is an oddball that does not allow direct keyboard programming of a known frequency. Rather, you can only transfer a displayed frequency from the SCAN mode or SEARCH mode into the PRIVATE bank. Details for doing this can be found on pages 24 through 26 of the Uniden owners manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

How do i program the bc350a scanner


Your scanner does not have a standard keyboard programming function. Rather you must "capture" a frequency in SCAN or SEARCH mode, and then transfer (program) it into the scanner's PRIVATE bank. For detailed instructions on doing this, you can download/print the scanner's operating manual here:

MEMORIES & MEMORY SCANNING:
• The 855 receives mainly via frequencies programmed into its 50 memory channels. It does not have a VFO or dial mode as such, but can scan within two frequencies.
• To scan memory channels, press SCAN. To hold a channel, press MANUAL.
• The 50 channels are divided into 5 banks (Bank 1: Channels 1-10, Bank 2: 11-20, etc.).
• Any of the 5 banks can be turned off from scanning. To turn a bank on/off, press its number while in Scan Mode. Active banks are illuminated in the display.
• SPEED toggles between 8 & 16 channels per second in both scan & search modes.
TO ENTER A FREQUENCY IN A MEMORY CHANNEL:

I couldn't locate the manual for your scanner, but it's basically the same as the BC860XLT, except that the 860 has 100 channels. Other than that, all controls and functions are the same. You can download and print the manual for the 860 here:

My owner's manual for Uniden BC370CRS is NO help! Program help!


Find the frequency you would like to store, press "E" pgm, then select the bank you would like to store it in (1 thru 10) by using arrow up or down then hit "E" again and it will save it in that bank. When you hit scan this will scan all your saved frequencies.
For scanning all frequencies not saved, move the switch to scanner and arrow up or down, when you find one you would like to save follow the process above.

BC72XLT program/scanning problems


1. If you mean on "bank" of channels, then you have locked out the others. To unlock them, place the scanner in "scan" mode & press each button that corresponds to each locked out bank until all are "on", as indicated near the top of the LCD. If you can't scan "bands", meaning all frequencies between 25-54, 118-174 & 406-512 Mhz, you may be stuck in the "capture" mode. Let me know if this is the case (not likely) & I'll coach you through it.

2. No.

3. No.
