About Your New BC60XLT

The BC60XLT is a brand new state-of-the-art information radio with automatic scanning capabilities. It can store frequencies such as police, fire/emergency, marine, amateur, and other communications into 10 channels.

Feature Highlights

10 Channels Program one frequency in each channel. You must have at least one channel programmed to use this scanner. 10 Bands, 29 MHz - 512 MHz Scan these frequency ranges with your scanner. (Note: The frequency coverage is not totally continuous from 29.0 MHz to 512 MHz.) Weather Channels Use your scanner as a weather information radio. Memory Backup Frequencies programmed in the channels are retained in memory for at least 1 day, and typically 3 days, when batteries are removed from the scanner.

What is Scanning?

Unlike standard AM or FM radio stations, most two-way communications (listed below) do not transmit continuously. The BC60XLT scans programmed channels at the rate of nearly 10 channels per second until it finds an active frequency. Scanning stops on an active frequency, and remains on that channel as long as the transmission continues. When the transmission ends, the scanner stays on the channel for 2 more seconds after the transmission stops, waiting for another transmission. The scanning cycle then resumes until another transmission is received. While the BC60XLT is scanning channels, it is in SCAN , it is in Mode. When you stop the scanning with MANUAL Mode.

How Squelch Works

Think of SQUELCH as a gate. If the gate is set too low (SQUELCH too low), everything (all noise as well as signals) gets through.
If the gate is set too high (SQUELCH too high), nothing gets through.
If the gate is set just right (SQUELCH set properly), just the desired signals get through.
H:.Bc60xlt.vp Mon Aug 30 15:34:04 1999

Setting the Squelch

1. Turn until hiss heard.
This action lowers the squelch gate, allowing all signals and noise to get through. No signal should be present when adjusting squelch. Scanner doesnt scan with squelch open.
2. Turn just until hiss stops.
This action raises the squelch gate, allowing only strong signals to get through. Scanner should begin scanning after two seconds. Note: You must have at least one channel programmed before the BC60XLT will scan.
Scanning Programmed Channels

Turn the scanner on.

Channel numbers advance rapidly. Note: When you turn the scanner on, it will always be in Scan mode.

Introduction

The BC60XLT-1 Scanner is a sophisticated information radio that allows you to monitor 10 different frequency bands and the NOAA weather information broadcasts. It is a state-of-the-art radio with scanning capabilities, and it can save up to 30 different frequencies in memory.

What is Scanning?

Unlike standard AM or FM radio stations, most two-way communications do not transmit continuously. The BC60XLT-1 scans programmed channels until it finds an active frequency. Scanning stops on an active frequency and remains on that channel as long as the transmission continues. When the transmission ends, the scanning cycle resumes until another transmission is received.

What is Chain Searching?

You can program five different personal search bands in your new scanner. You simply select a Chain Search location, define the search range, and begin your search. The scanner looks for active communications in the range youve specified, so you can locate frequencies in your area which may not be listed in your Betty Bearcat Starter Frequency Guide. You can set your scanner to search up to all five Chain Search bands at once, or you can turn off those search bands you dont want. This gives you complete control of the search function.

Do not program a weather frequency into one of the channels, since weather channels transmit continuously. Use for weather information. Group similar frequencies into adjacent channels. For example, program police frequencies in channels 1 through 10 and fire/emergency into channels 11 through 20, and so on. Put the frequency that you listen to the most or the most important frequency into a Priority channel. To quickly program a series of channels, start with the lowest number channel. For example, when you are programming five new frequencies into Channels 4 through 8, start with Channel 4. After or you finish programming a channel, press to go to the next higher channel. To erase the channel, press , and then press. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out.
Record channels and frequencies in some convenient place in case the scanner memory is lost.

Scanning

When you turn on the power, the

BC60XLT-1

automatically starts in the Scan mode. During normal scanning the scanner skips unprogrammed or locked out channels.

CHANNELS

Note: Your scanner searches each selected Personal Chain Search band. The display flashes the number of the band while its scanned. Other bands which are programmed and selected are displayed but do not flash.
Press s to move to the next chain location.
Note: You can press the Chain Search band number, followed by s, to access the location directly.
To turn off a Chain Search band during search scanning, press its location number. For example, (a) if Chain Search locations 1, 2 and 3 are selected, (b) press 3 to turn off band three so that its not scanned during your search.

Search Hold Feature

1. Press U or D at anytime to stop the search.
Press U to move to the next higher frequency

(See Step 3)

3. Press D to move down to the previous frequency.
Press R to resume searching.
Note: The search continues toward either the upper or lower search limit, depending on which direction key (U or D ) was pressed last.

Channel Skip

If a particular channel continues to interrupt search scanning, it is possible to set your scanner to skip the frequency. If your scanner stops while searching, press N to lockout the frequency from the search range.
Note: You can program 10 skip frequencies. The 11th skip frequency entered causes the 1st skip frequency to unlock.
To unlock all skip frequencies at once, follow these steps: 1. Press either U or D during a search.
Note: You must be in Search Hold before restoring all skipped frequencies.
2. Press and hold N for about two seconds.
You will hear two beeps when all the channels have been restored.
Storing Search Frequencies
You can quickly store any frequency you find during Search.

Caution: You must select the channel in which you will store the frequency before entering the search mode. Otherwise, you may erase a stored frequency that you want to keep.
Select a channel. a. Enter the channel number. b. Then press M again.
Select one or more of the personal search bands.
For example, select CHAIN 2.
Note: These frequencies were used during Setting a Search Range, on page 23.

Weather Scan

Your BC60XLT-1 is designed to scan 7 programmed NOAA frequencies, so you easily find your local NOAA weather broadcast.
It is not advisable to program a weather frequency into one of the 30 channels since weather channels transmit continuously. The scanner will remain on the weather channel, disrupting the scanning cycle.
Press W to activate the Weather scan.
Note: Be sure SQUELCH is set properly.
2. When the Weather Scan finds an active weather channel, it stops. Press W again to find the next active weather channel.
In some parts of the country, you may not be able to monitor weather broadcasts, such as in low-lying areas. Normally, a higher location or a better antenna improves reception.
To exit Weather Scan, press M, S, or R.

Care and Maintenance

General Use
Turn the scanner off before disconnecting the power or replacing the batteries. Always write down the programmed frequencies in the event of memory loss. If memory is lost, simply reprogram each channel. The display shows 000.0000 in all channels when there has been a memory loss. Always press each button firmly until you hear the entry tone for that key entry.

Location

Do not use the scanner in high-moisture environments such as the kitchen or bathroom. Avoid placing the unit in direct sunlight or near heating elements or vents. If the scanner receives strong interference or electrical noise, move it or its antenna away from the source of the noise. If possible, a higher elevation, may provide better reception. Also try changing the height or angle of the antenna. Do not plug the scanner into an outlet controlled by a wall switch because long power interruptions may cause memory loss.

Cleaning

Disconnect the power to the unit before cleaning. Clean the outside of the scanner with a mild detergent. To prevent scratches, do not use abrasive cleaners or solvents. Be careful not to rub the LCD window. Do not use excessive amounts of water.

Repairs

Do not attempt any repair. The scanner contains no serviceable parts. Contact the Uniden Customer Service Center or take it to a qualified repair technician.

Birdies

All radios can receive birdies (undesired signals). If your scanner stops during Scan mode and no sound is heard, it may be receiving a birdie. Birdies are internally generated signals inherent in the electronics of the receiver. Press L to lockout the channel,and then press Sto resume scanning.

Troubleshooting

If your BC60XLT-1 is not performing properly, try the following steps.
Problem Scanner wont work. Suggestion 1. Check the connections at both ends of the AC Adapter. 2. Turn on the wall switch of your room. You could be using an outlet controlled by the wall switch. 3. Move the AC Adapter to another wall outlet or replace the batteries. Improper reception. 1. Check the antenna connection or move and reposition the antenna. 2. Move the scanner. 3. You may be in a remote area which could require an optional multi-band antenna. Check with your dealer or local electronics store. Scan wont stop. 1. Adjust squelch threshold - refer to page 10, Setting the Squelch. 2. Check the antenna connection. 3. Check to see if many of the channels are locked out. If so, the scanner has less chance of finding an active channel. 4. Review each channels frequency to see if it is still stored in memory and is correct. 5. Its possible that none of the programmed frequencies are currently active. Scan wont start. 1. Press the Skey again. 2. Adjust the SQUELCH control. 3. Check to see if all channels are locked out. Weather Scan wont work. 1. Adjust squelch threshold - refer to page 10, Setting the Squelch. 2. Check the antenna.
