Page Understanding Scanning What is Searching?

The BCT can search each of its 17 bands and up to ten bands together to find active frequencies. This is different from scanning because you are searching for frequencies that have not been programmed into the scanner.

When you select frequency bands to search, the scanner searches for any active frequency within the lower and upper limits you specify. Page Conventional Scanning other to the point where it is impossible to clearly receive any of the stations.

Your BCT is designed to track the following types of trunking systems. Not only does your BCT scan channels like a conventional scanner, it actually follows the users of a trunked radio system.

This information is programmed into each user radio. To purchase another copy of the conventional or trunking frequency guide, contact your local dealer or Installing Your Scanner You might also try changing the height or angle of the telescoping antenna.

However, some signals are identifiable by the scanner as data signals, and you can set the scanner to automatically skip these channels.

When you press WX, your scanner finds the first active transmission. If a transmission seems weak or distant, press WX again to find a clearer station. You must press WX again to start the weather scan again. Page 37 1. Hold down WX for about 2 seconds to turn on weather alert.

Your BCT is preprogrammed with the most common step sizes for each band, so you seldom need to change this setting. If there is, the scanner immediately switches to the priority channel. For example, if you are Page 45 4. To enter trunking frequencies, use the keypad to enter the first frequency, then press E on the keypad.
