The person who programmed your radio decided if and how the channel scanning would function, and whether or not the person using the radio would be able to program a scan list, and if so, which switches or buttons to use. It was all determined using computer software and by connecting the computer to the radio. Maybe you have a 3-position switch. Maybe by putting the switch in a certain position, you can program the scan list yourself. Maybe when the switch is in the right position, then pressing a side button turns on a green light to indicate that you've just added that channel to your scan list. Pressing the same side button again turns off the green light to indicate that you've just removed that particular channel from the scan list. Do this for all 16 channels, then put the 3-position switch into the scan-on position. Instead of a 3-position switch, the person who programmed your radio may have decided that the 2-position concentric switch would be used for programming your scan list. If you're lucky, then your radio has an LCD display. If so, then select PROG and look for a blinking square symbol to tell you when to program your scan list and look for a letter Z with an arrow on it to tell you that your radio is scanning. On the other hand, the person who programmed your radio with a computer may have decided that you did not need to have and of these options enabled.

No! your radio is not programed properly. you will need to take it to a Motorola Dealer or back to the person that programed it. It is a simple fix but you cna not do it from the keypad.

Sorry. Bill

I have a RCA LCD TV model no. RLC3708A and when hooking it up when I took it out of box, I got to


I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

How to program a bc855xlt uniden bearcat scanning radio


Major Functions of Uniden BC 855 XLT Desktop Scanner

RANGES AND MODES:
29-54 MHz; 137-174 MHz; 406-512 MHz; and 806-956 MHz NFM; 118-136 MHz AM

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:
• Press MANUAL.
• Press the channel number you wish to program using keypad.
• Press MANUAL again.
• Enter the desired frequency using the keypad.
• Press E (ENTER). (If you make an ERROR, press CLEAR & re-enter frequency.)
• To set 2-second delay, press DELAY. Confirmed by “DLY” in display. Same deselects.
• To lock out channel from scan, select it & press LOCK OUT. Same deselects.
PRIORITY CHANNEL: Press PRIORITY to scan Ch. 1 every 2 seconds.
TO SELECT CHANNELS MANUALLY:
• Press MANUAL.
• Press desired channel number on keypad.
• Press MANUAL. Press MANUAL repeatedly to step through channels sequentially.

TO SCAN/SEARCH A GIVEN FREQUENCY RANGE:

• Press LIMIT.
• Enter the upper frequency limit.
• Press LIMIT.
• Press SEARCH.

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:

I have a MTX8000 Handie-Talkie FM Radio It is a 16 channel radio


You're on scan mode but have no channel in scan list. You might have to go to scan PROGRAM mode and select the channel you want to scan then press a side button to put that channel in the scan list then will scan.

Uniden Bearcat Scanner Model# BC147XLT


The BC147XLT is too old to obtain a manual from Uniden, but here's how you program it:

Turn it on & press 'Manual', then enter the number of the channel you wish to program & press 'Manual' again. Now enter the frequency you want to put in that channel, example 155.550, and press "Enter'. Then press manual to go to the next channel or repeat the first procedure to select a different channel other than the next one. Repeat the programming procedure for each channel.

Uniden/bearcat BC-100


If it's indeed a BC-100 and not a BC-100xlt, the 16 channels are easy to program and use.
1. Press MANUAL 3 MANUAL with 3 being the number of the channel you wish to program.
2. Enter the frequency for that channel (e.g., 162.55) followed by ENTER.
3. Follow the same sequence for each channel you wish to program, except that pressing MANUAL after you program a channel will advance the scanner to the next channel.

To scan, simply press the SCAN button after your frequencies are programmed.
