      Hi Gus - this actually sounds very interesting.. Does it wipe out what's already in there, like things I have hand programmed? I'm sure there are more channels in my area than I know about - although I have most of them, and they seem to have been pretty static for a long time... However it's good to know about this - and it's certainly cheap enough..
      I have tried different antenna's.. I'd need a roof antenna in order to get the transmissions I really want. I have a few bigger indoor antenna's but they don't make much difference.. It IS true that the newer scanners seem to pick up a little better.. not sure if they have more antennas inside them, or if parts wear out - or what..

      These new scanner's may seem complex and they are in some ways but this is in
      response to the new technologies in radio. I hope you understand how our nation
      is converting to digital transmissions in the public service and other sectors
      and you need to know that you have an anologue scanner (the most powerful ever
      made available in the US) and if your location is broadcasting in the anologue
      format you will be able to recieve all thier transmissions in great detail with
      your BC 346 XT. Of course all radio reception is based on power of transmission
      and the antenna on your recieving end. Having said that, you really should
      download the ARC XT PRO for Uniden XT series. You can purchase a six month
      subscription for less than $15 and it will give you all the channels in your
      area for you to edit to your preferences and you just hit the upload to scanner
      button and that's it, couldn't be any sweeter. You may want to go to
      scannermaster.com and check out the large assortment of world class antenna's
      for your scanner. I have this scanner also and love the power it gives me.

      Once you get the hang of it this scanner is the bomb!!!! I have never used any
      programming software, jusr my two hands..I'm old school like that. Half of the
      fun is in learning it and manually programming at least it is for me.

      Jan mine has Atlanta and Houston but I do not need any of them. I can pick up
      some in Houston but what I want is to program my town and the surrounding towns
      in it. These are all small towns that would not be preprogrammed on any scanner.

      My Niece is a pretty smart gal and she has been working on it for several hours
      but has not got the freescan to download any thing yet. I am wishing now that I
      had not bought it. It seems to be more trouble than it is worth. I just wanted
      to buy my wife a nice scanner for her Birthday.
      Happy New Year to you and to everyone here. Life is good.

      The scanner comes programed with some of the most popular areas of the


      However if my memory is correct they are turned off. You must turn the

      quick keys on.

      I forgot if they were in the 20-29 or 60-69 quick keys. You will see an

      asterisk where there is something programed.
