BC 560XLT 16-Channel Direct Entry Programmable Scanner PROGRAMMING CHANNELS 1. Turn on your scanner by turning the volume clockwise. 2. The sc…anner might strart scanning. If so, press MANUAL to stop the scanning. 3. Enter the channel number that you want to program and press MANUAL. 4. Enter a frequency including the decimal point. The decimal point shows up on the display as a -- (dash). 5. Press Enter to store the frequency. 6. To confirm the proper entry, press REVIEW. The programmed frequency appears on the display one digit at a time. 7. To program more channels repeat steps 3-4.
Turn on unit. (adjust squelch to mute, to silence if you want) 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. You will have to get a owners manual to find out what the frequency ranges the scanner is limited to or search for someone that has one. http://www.scannerworld.com/content/product/model/OMBC145XL
Here's a link to the owner's manual. I believe the answer begins on pg 40. http://www.uniden.com/content/ebiz/uniden/resources/ownersmanuals/EXAI378om.pdf

Bearcats...when I think of the word, I want to laugh. There are so many people out there who believe they are real. People! LISTEN TO ME. They are FAKE. A Binturong is commonl…y called a Bearcat, which was simply a NICKNAME given to the animal from it's home culture. There are many schools that have Bearcats as mascots, which has led many people to believe that they exist. -National Geographic Magazine, nationalgeographic.com
Turn on the radio Press the "band" button Keep pressing the "band" button until you come within the parameters of the frequency that you want Let the radio scan until it… gets close to the actual frequency that you're looking for Press the "hold" button and use the arrow "up" or "down" button till you lock in the correct frequency Once you have the frequency locked in, press the "program" button Press the "private" button The unused channel will be flashing Press the "program" button, this locks the frequency into that channel Continue this process until all of the frequencies are loaded into the radio
There are several ways. First, turn the scanner on and adjust the squelch so that it is quite. Then press the manual button to flip through the 16 channels. Stop on the ch…annel you want to program. Then, type in the frequency followed by the "E" key on the lower right of the keypad. Hit the manual button to move to the next channel and repeat the process above. You can also "scan" for a frequency. Here is how: Use the manual button to get to one of the channels. Now type in "120.0 followed by pressing the "limit" button. Now type in "125.0" and press the "limit" button again. Now press the "scan" button. The scanner will now search all frequencies between 120.0 and 125.0 on that channel and will pause and listen should a transmission happen. You can do this "limit" scan for any frequency range that the scanner is capable of receiving. Once you hear a transmission, you can press the "hold" button to stay on that received frequency. Pressing the "E" button will lock that frequency into that channel.
1. If you are, stop scanning by pressing Manual. 2. Switch to the channel you want to program, either by entering it on the keypad and then pressing Manual or by conti…nually hitting Manual until you are on it. 3. Enter the frequency, including the decimal point, on the keypad using three decimals. "456.789" for instance. the decimal point will show up as a dash in the preview window. 4. Press E 5. Done. To assure yourself it worked, you can go to the channel (or be on it) as per 2. and then hit review. It will flash the channel number and then the frequency it is programmed for one digit at a time.
With radio on, press manual, enter the group you want the new freq to be on. 1-5. enter the channel, enter the freq by pressing the number keys, press enter. The desired freq …should remain on that channel until changed. Press manual for the next channel to be progrqmmed. The 250 is the best scanner I have ever owned.

Your scanner uses a standard BNC antenna connector. Check eBay and ScannerMaster.com for available antennas.
No. I saw nothing about it being able to decode APCO codes. I also was not able to locate anything in the manual about it being able to handle trunked systems. The link belo…w in the Related Links section goes to the manual for this unit.
