I just purchased a Uniden BC246T and have no idea how to program it. I had a Uniden SC150B for years but decided to get a new scanner because I noticed that I couldn't get the full conversation because of the trunking they have now. My old scanner was easy to program, you just choose the bank 1-10 and then entered the freq. After this you would just hit E and then move on to the next freq. This new scanner is very confusing and I just can't figure out where to start. I went to RadioReference and found the Type of system we're on and all the Primary/Secondary and Trunking freq. but I have no idea how to put them in. I've read the manual but lets just say it's very lacking in "How TO" instructions. I would like to set up the scanner where each bank number is a different service. For example, Charlotte Police would be button 1, Charlotte Fire would be button 2, and Charlotte EMS would be button 3. I may do the same for a few surrounding countys such as Cabarrus County. This is the way I have my old scanner set up, each service is in a different bank. I feel this way I can turn off fire or EMS if i decide I just want to hear police. However, I'm not sure if it's called banking any longer. I read something about Talk Groups but don't really understand. I just want to set up the scanner where I can turn on and off different sesvices.... Could some one help me on programing this thing, I'm sooo lost with this new stuff.
Here is a link to my freqs on RadioReference.
