About This Manual
The screen displays used in this manual are representations of what might appear when you use your scanner. Since what you see depends on the frequencies for your area and the settings you select, you might notice some differences between what is in this manual and what appears on your scanner.

To get the most from this manual, review the contents to become familiar with the basic functions available. If you are new to scanning, be sure to read Understanding Scanning on Page 14 for a quick background on the technology behind the hobby. The first thing youll need to do is install batteries in the scanner. Then you need to connect the included antenna to the scanner. See Using Internal Batteries on Page 19 and Connecting the Antenna on Page 23 if you need any help doing this.

This section provides you with background on how Understanding Scanning scanning works. You dont really need to know all of this to use your scanner, but some background knowledge will help you get the most from your BC72XLT.
What is Scanning?
Unlike standard AM or FM radio stations, most twoway communications do not transmit continuously. Your BC72XLT scans programmed channels until it finds an active frequency, then stops on that frequency and remains on that channel as long as the transmission continues. When the transmission ends, the scanning cycle resumes until the scanner receives another transmission.
What is Searching?
The BC72XLT can search for 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. When the scanner finds an active frequency, it stops on that frequency as long as the transmission lasts. If you think the frequency is interesting, you can program it into one of the banks. If not, you can continue to search.
Conventional scanning is a relatively simple concept. Each group of users in a conventional system is assigned a single frequency (for simplex systems) or two frequencies (for repeater systems). Any time one of them transmits, their transmission always goes out on the same frequency. Up until the late 1980s
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 15 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
this was the primary way that radio systems operated. Even today, there are many 2-way radio users who operate using a conventional system: Aircraft Amateur radio FRS/GMRS users Broadcast AM/FM/TV stations Many business radio users
When you want to store a conventional system, all you need to know is the frequencies they operate on. When you are scanning a conventional system, the scanner stops very briefly on each channel to see if there is activity. If there isnt, the scanner quickly moves to the next channel. If there is, then the scanner pauses on the transmission until it is over.
Simplex systems use a single frequency for both transmit and receive. Most radios using this type of operation are limited to line-of-sight operation. This type of radio is frequently used at construction job sites, and with inexpensive consumer radios such as GMRS/FRS radios. The range is typically 1-8 miles, depending upon the terrain and many other factors.
Repeater systems use two frequencies: one transmits from the radio to a central repeater; the other transmits from the repeater to other radios in the system. With a repeater-based system, the repeater is located on top of a tall building or on a radio tower that provides great visibility to the area of operation. When a user transmits (on an input frequency), the signal is picked up by the repeater and retransmitted (on an output frequency). The users radios always
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 16 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
listen for activity on the output frequency and transmit on the input frequency. Since the repeater is located very high, there is a very large line of sight. Typical repeater systems provide coverage out to about a 25-mile radius from the repeater location.
Where To Obtain More Information
By itself, this manual really only provides part of what you need to know to have fun scanning how to program and use the scanner. The included conventional frequency guide will give you a good head start on the other part of what you need to know what frequencies have interesting content.
Information On The Internet
The Internet is a great source for current frequencies and information about scanning. Many web sites have lists of frequencies for your area. You can use a search engine to find and use them. Make a list of the agencies you want to listen to, then look up the frequencies and systems used by those agencies. Here are a few useful sites: http://www.scannermaster.com * - frequency resources and home of Police Call. You can also call them at SCANNER (hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time Monday through Friday). http://www.radioreference.com * - the Internet's premier source for user-supported radio system information. http://www.bearcat1.com - frequency information from National Communications.

Setting Up Your Scanner
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 19 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
These guidelines will help you install and use your new scanner: If your scanner receives interference or electrical noise, move the scanner or its antenna away from the source. You might also try changing the height or angle of the telescoping antenna. To improve the scanners reception, use an optional external antenna designed for multiband coverage. (You can purchase this type of antenna at a local electronics store). If the optional antenna has no cable, use 50-70 ohm coaxial cable for lead-in. A mating plug might be necessary for the optional antennas. Use an optional mono earphone or mono headset with proper impedance for private listening. Read the precautions on the inside front cover of this Owners Manual. Do not use the scanner in high-moisture environments such as the kitchen or bathroom. Avoid placing the scanner in direct sunlight or near heating elements or vents.
Using Internal Batteries
You can power your scanner using two alkaline or rechargeable AA batteries (not supplied).
Using Non-Rechargeable Batteries
1. Make sure the power is turned off. 2. Slide the battery compartment cover. 3. Before you install alkaline or any other nonrechargeable batteries, use a pointed object such as a ballpoint pen to set REG. ALK. BATT./ NI-MH BATT. inside the compartment to REG. ALK. BATT.
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 20 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
Set REG. ALK. BATT./NI-MH BATT. to NI-MH BATT. only if you are using rechargeable batteries. Never attempt to recharge non-rechargeable batteries. Non-rechargeable batteries can get hot or burst if you try to recharge them. 4. Install two batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and -) marked inside.
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 21 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
Cautions: Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type. Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that destroy electronic circuits. Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.
5. Replace the cover.
6. When flashes and the scanner beeps every 15 seconds, replace both batteries.
Using Rechargeable Batteries
You can also use two rechargeable batteries to power your scanner. Before you use Ni-MH or Ni-Cd batteries, you must charge them. The scanner has a built-in circuit that lets you recharge Ni-MH or Ni-Cd batteries while they are in the scanner. To charge the batteries, set REG. ALK. BATT./NI-MH BATT. inside the battery compartment to NI-MH BATT., install the batteries in the scanner, and connect an external AC adapter to the scanner's DC 6V jack (see Using AC Power on Page 23).
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 22 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
Do not connect either adapter to the scanner if nonrechargeable batteries (such as alkaline batteries) are installed in the scanner and REG. ALK. BATT./NI-MH BATT. is set to NI-MH BATT., or if you are unsure of the switchs position. Non-rechargeable batteries will get hot and can even burst if you try to recharge them. Before you use Ni-MH or Ni-Cd batteries for the first time, charge them for 14 hours to bring them to a full charge. Discharged batteries take about 14 hours to fully recharge. Notes: The scanner might test rechargeable batteries when you install them. TSt CHArg and appear. If the batteries are good, TSt disappears and the scanner charges the batteries. Otherwise, no bAtt appears and the scanner does not charge the batteries. Ni-MH batteries last longer and deliver more power if you occasionally let them fully discharge. To do this, simply use the scanner until it beeps every 15 seconds and flashes. To prevent damage to Ni-MH batteries, never charge them in an area where the temperature is above 113F (45C) or below 40F (4C). If you connect an external power source to the scanner with REG. ALK. BATT./NI-MH BATT. set to REG. ALK. BATT., CHArg and appear but the scanner does NOT charge the batteries. Make sure that you use the correct batteries and set REG. ALK. BATT./ NI-MH BATT. to the correct position when you connect an external power source.
If you connect an external speaker to the scanner's headphone jack, never connect the audio output line to a power supply and ground. This might damage the scanner.

About Your Scanner
We use Your Scanner About a few simple terms in this manual to explain the features of the scanner. Familiarize yourself with these terms and the scanner's features, and you can put the scanner to work for you right away. Simply determine the type of communications you want to receive, then set the scanner to scan those communications. A frequency, expressed in kHz or MHz, is the tuning location of a station. To find active frequencies, you use the search function or refer to a frequency reference. Besides searching within a selected frequency range, you can also search your scanner's service banks. Service banks are preset groups of frequencies categorized by the type of services that use those frequencies. For example, many amateur radio frequencies are located in the HAM service bank. When you search and find a desired frequency, you can store it into a programmable memory location called a channel. Channels are grouped into channel-storage banks. The scanner has 10 channel-storage banks and each bank has 10 channels. You can scan the channel-storage banks to see if there is activity on the frequencies stored there.

DLY - appears when you select a delay. PRI - appears when the priority feature is turned on. HAM, WX, POL, FIRE, AIR, or MRN - appears along with an indicator that shows the current service bank during a service search. ALT - appears when you receive a Close Call alert while the Close Call function is on.
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 32 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
The scanner is preprogrammed with all the frequencies allocated to the weather, ham, marine, aircraft, police, and fire services.
To make it easier to identify and select the channels you want to listen to, the 100 channels are divided into 10 channel-storage banks. Each bank has 10 channels. Use each channel-storage bank to group frequencies, such as those for the police department, fire department, ambulance services, or aircraft. For example, the police department might use four frequencies in your town while the fire department uses an additional four. You could program the four police frequencies starting with Channel 1 (the first channel in bank 1), and program the fire department frequencies starting with Channel 11 (the first channel in bank 2).

Operation The Scanner and Turning On Setting Squelch
Note: Make sure the scanner's antenna is connected before you turn it on. 1. Turn Squelch fully counterclockwise. 2. Press and hold for about 2 seconds to turn the scanner on, then turn Volume clockwise until you hear a hissing sound. 3. If the scanner is scanning, press Hold to stop scanning, then turn Squelch clockwise until the hissing stops.
Storing Known Frequencies Into Channels
1. Press Hold. Then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency, then press Func and Pgm. The channel number appears. 2. Use the number keys and to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store. 3. Press E to store the frequency into the channel. Notes: If you entered an invalid frequency in Step 2, Error appears and the scanner beeps three times. Enter a valid frequency. The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. For example, if you enter 151.473 (MHz), your scanner accepts it as 151.475. When you enter a frequency into a channel, the scanner automatically turns on the delay function and DLY appears. When delay is turned on, the scanner automatically pauses scanning
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 36 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
transmission, it stops on it. When the transmission ends, the scanner resumes scanning. Notes: If you have not stored frequencies into any channels, the scanner does not scan. If the scanner picks up unwanted partial, or very weak transmissions, turn Squelch clockwise to decrease the scanner's sensitivity to these signals. To listen to a weak or distant station, turn Squelch counterclockwise. To ensure proper scanning, adjust Squelch until the audio mutes.
Manually Selecting a Channel
You can continuously monitor a single channel without scanning. This is useful if you hear an emergency broadcast on a channel and do not want to miss any details - even though there might be periods of silence - or if you want to monitor a specific channel. To manually select a channel, press Hold, enter the channel number then press Hold again. Or, during scanning, if the radio stops at a channel you want to listen to, press Hold once. (Repeatedly pressing Hold at this time causes the scanner to step through the channels.) Press Scan to resume automatic scanning.

SpecialCallTM RF Capture Technology Close Features
Your scanner's Close Call feature lets you set the scanner so it detects then displays the frequency of a nearby strong radio transmission. Close Call RF capture works great for finding frequencies at venues such as malls and sporting events. You can set the scanner so Close Call detection works "in the background" while you are scanning other frequencies, turn off normal scanning while Close Call is working, or turn off the Close Call feature and use the scanner normally. You can set the scanner so it alerts you when the Close Call feature detects a frequency. You can also set the frequency band where you want the scanner to look for transmissions. Unlike searching, which requires the scanner to tune to a frequency to check for a transmission, Close Call RF capture directly detects the presence of a strong, nearby signal and instantly tunes to the sources frequency. Notes: Close Call RF capture works well for locating the source of strong local transmissions such as mobile and handheld two-way radios in areas with no other strong transmission sources. However, if you are in an area with many transmission sources (such as pager radio transmitters, multi-use radio towers, traffic control devices, etc.), Close Call RF capture might not find the transmission you are searching for, or it might find a transmission other than the one you are searching for. Close Call RF capture cannot detect satellite dishes or any transmitter with a frequency above or below the frequency ranges listed under Setting the Close Call Options on Page 38.
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 38 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
Close Call works better with some types of transmissions than others. It might not correctly display frequency information for transmitters using a highly directive antenna (such as an amateur radio beam antenna), if there are many transmitters operating at the same time in the same area, or if the transmitter is a broadcast television station.
Setting the Close Call Options
1. Press Func then press and hold for 2 seconds. One of the following Close Call options appears. C-C.bnd: Lets you select the Close Call band. C-C.ALt: Lets you select the Close Call alert settings. C-C.PS: Lets you turn Pager Screen on or off. Pager Screen lets you set the scanner so it does not detect pager frequencies. 2. Repeatedly press or you want, then press E. to select the option
If you selected C-C.bnd, one of the following band names appears. bnd Lo: VHF Low Band (25.0000 - 54.0000 MHz) bnd Air: AIR Low Band (108.0000 - 136.9875 MHz) bnd Hi: VHF High Band (137.0000 - 174.0000 MHz) bnd UHF: UHF Band (406.0000 - 512.0000 MHz)
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 39 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM

To enter the frequency anyway, press E to accept. The scanner moves to program mode after you stored the frequency.
Search Skip Memory
You can skip up to 50 specified frequencies during a search. This lets you avoid unwanted frequencies or those already stored in a channel. Notes: You cannot skip frequencies during WX service search. Search skip frequencies are shared by service search, direct entry search, chain search, and Close Call modes. If skip frequencies are sent in certain mode, the frequencies are also skipped in other search modes and Close Call mode.
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 46 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
To skip a frequency, press Func and L/O when the scanner stops on the frequency during a search or a search hold. The scanner stores the frequency in memory and automatically resumes the search if it is not in hold. Follow these steps to clear a single frequency from skip memory so the scanner stops on it during a search. 1. Press Hold to stop the search. 2. Press Func + or Func + frequency. L/O appears. to select the
3. Press Func + L/O. L/O disappears. To clear all the skip frequencies at once while searching or search hold, press Func then press and hold L/O until the scanner beeps. Notes: If you selected all frequencies to be skipped within the search range, the scanner beeps 3 times and does not search. If you select more than 50 frequencies to skip, each new frequency replaces a frequency previously stored, beginning with the first stored frequency. Press Func + or Func + to select a skipped frequency while Hold appears. L/O appears when you select a skipped frequency.
Sometimes a user might pause before replying to a transmission. To avoid missing a reply on a specific channel, you can program a 2-second delay into any channel or frequency. The scanner continues to monitor the channel frequency for an additional
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 47 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM
2 seconds after the transmission stops before resuming scanning or searching. The scanner automatically sets a delay when you store frequencies into channels or when you search frequencies. When the delay feature is on, DLY appears. If it is off, follow one of these steps to program a delay depending on how the scanner is operating,. If the scanner is scanning and stops on an active channel where you want to store a delay, quickly press Func + Dly before it continues scanning again. DLY appears. If the desired channel is not selected, manually select the channel, then press Func + Dly. DLY appears. If the scanner is searching, press Func + Dly while the scanner is searching. DLY appears and the scanner automatically adds a 2-second delay to every frequency it stops on in that band.
To turn off the 2-second delay, press Func + Dly while the scanner is monitoring a channel, scanning, or searching. DLY disappears.
Turning Channel-Storage Banks On and Off
You can turn each channel-storage bank on and off. When you turn off a bank, the scanner does not scan any of the 10 channels in that bank. While scanning, press the number key that corresponds to the bank you want to turn on or off. Numbers appear at the top of the display, showing the currently selected banks. The scanner scans all the channels within the displayed banks that are not locked out (see Lock-
BC72 Paper OM.fm Page 48 Monday, October 25, 2004 3:11 PM

Locking Out Channels
You can increase the scanning speed by locking out channels that have a continuous transmission, such as a weather channel. To lock out a channel, manually select the channel, then press Func + L/O. L/O appears. Note: You can still manually select locked-out channels. To remove the lockout from a channel, manually select the channel, then press Func + L/O. L/O disappears. To unlock all channels in the banks that are turned on, press Hold to stop scanning, then press Func and press and hold L/O until the scanner beeps twice.
