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

      country.

      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.

        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.

            I agree - I have always hand programmed my scanners too - but things are getting more complex out there - I'm lucky my area is still analog and motorola trunked - so I am okay with this scanner.. my husband uses the new one - the 346 - and he likes it - after I programmed it -

            The biggest issue I had with it was the screen display size (which might be adjustable) and that I would have wanted to program more into it to "number" my channels, etc.. but I'm sure there will come a time when my 245 won't do the trick anymore..

            But I agree - Hat's off to Mark-Scanners - I would be dead in the water without his easy to use manuals..

              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..

              Thanks..

                After several days and no luck between two of us I took my scanner back. I just don't think scanners has to be that complicated. I bought a scanner so my wife could sit and enjoy it, not to spend days learning how to operate it. I will shop around until I find something that is easier to operate. I am sure it is a nice scanner but I did not realize the new ones was so hard to understand and operate. I do appreciate everyone trying to help me. This seems like a great bunch of people. God Bless and have a great new year. JJ

                  After several days and no luck between two of us I took my scanner back.
                  I just don't think scanners has to be that complicated. I bought a scanner
                  so my wife could sit and enjoy it, not to spend days learning how to operate
                  it. I will shop around until I find something that is easier to operate. I
                  am sure it is a nice scanner but I did not realize the new ones was so hard
                  to understand and operate. I do appreciate everyone trying to help me. This
                  seems like a great bunch of people. God Bless and have a great new year. JJ

                      to scannermaster.com and scroll down to software/ Bearcat/ and the model no.
                      BC346XT and you'll see ARC's software with a nice full product description.
                      Radio Reference runs inside ARC. You will also need the correct USB cable to
                      connect your scanner to your computer. When you get all this, you'll be running
                      your scanner from your computer whenever you like. You can then keep or reject
                      any channels to your liking. Yes, it does get a little expensive for all these
                      accessories, I have spent hundreds of dollars on accessories for my BC346XT. I
                      live in Portland, Or., which is a mid sized city that has not converted to
                      digital so this little Uniden is quite potent here. Oh, I don't work for
                      scannermaster, but they have worked well for me.

                      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..


                      Thanks..

                      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.

                      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

                      country.

                      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.

                        Sounds like you need a Uniden HomePatrol.
                        Enter zip code and you're done.

                            Sounds like you need a Uniden HomePatrol.
                            Enter zip code and you're done.

                              JJ - get a 245XLT off ebay.. it's easy to set up and use.. Not sure if anything can be downloaded from a computer - as I never tried - but you just need your local freq's and this can do analog and trunked stuff - very easily.. I felt the same way. I'm sure the 346 can do lots of cool stuff - but I didn't have the time to put into it either..
                              I don't know what homepatrol is - I'll have to check it out..

                              Sounds like you need a Uniden HomePatrol.
                              Enter zip code and you're done.

                              I may add that if you get a scanner.. You need to do your homework.. if systems in your area are in the process of upgrading (cops, fire, Public service etc..

                                I may add that if you get a scanner.. You need to do your homework.. if systems in your area are in the process of upgrading (cops, fire, Public service etc.. you need to know that to ensure your new scanner won’t be obsolete in a few months.. I personally would buy a scanner from a name brand that you know will support it.. (not clearance etc..).. be sure to check if they (PS agencies) are not changing modes or frequencies in the near future otherwise you’ll need a scanner that is flashable with new software allowing your scanner to go to the new frequencies..



                                The whole flashable thing IMHO means that Uniden or GRE or others is more likely to support with software updates before Radio Shack or other “after marketers” will..

                                JJ - get a 245XLT off ebay.. it's easy to set up and use.. Not sure if anything can be downloaded from a computer - as I never tried - but you just need your local freq's and this can do analog and trunked stuff - very easily.. I felt the same way. I'm sure the 346 can do lots of cool stuff - but I didn't have the time to put into it either..
                                I don't know what homepatrol is - I'll have to check it out..

                                Sounds like you need a Uniden HomePatrol.
                                Enter zip code and you're done.
