Congratulations on your purchase of the BCT7 Highway Communications System & Scanning Radio! State-of-the-art engineering and advanced electronics provide you with a preprogrammed information radio designed for easy operation and dependability. With the BCT7 Scanning Radio, you can listen to thousands of Highway Patrol, police, and DOT frequencies, as well as Fire, News, Weather, CB and Private frequencies you program. Plus, the new built-in technology sounds an alarm when you are within an approximate 3 mile radius of a Highway Patrol unit! Best of all, you dont have to program any frequencies. Just set the BCT7 for your state, and the scanner will do the rest. Please read this Operating Guide thoroughly before attempting to operate the unit.
What are Highway Patrol Warning Alerts?
Most highway patrol vehicles on the road today are equipped with a secondary radio system known as a mobile extender or vehicular repeater. Whenever the dispatcher transmits to any vehicle in the district, every mobile extender in every car within the district is activated. Using a constant PRIORITY check of specific frequencies in each state, the BCT7 recognizes and alerts you to transmissions from mobile extender radios as well as from car-to-car, aircraft-to-car and other special-purpose frequencies. You receive an audible (beep tone) and visual (flash of warning light) alert whenever you are within an approximate three mile radius of many Highway Patrol/State Police units.

What is Scanning?

Unlike standard AM or FM radio stations, most two-way communications (listed on the page 5) do not transmit continuously. The BCT7 scans programmed channels at the rate of nearly 100 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 scanning cycle resumes until another transmission is received. While the BCT7 scans channels, it is in Scan mode. When you stop scanning with H, it is in Manual mode.

What is Searching?

The BCT7 can search 12 bands to find active frequencies. This gives you the opportunity to find new frequencies that have not been programmed. While the BCT7 searches for active frequencies, it is in Search mode. When you stop the search with H, it is in Search Hold mode.
Where to Get More Information
Because your BCT7 is fully pre-programmed, you do not need to enter frequencies into the radio. However, should you desire to enter specific frequencies which have not been factory pre-programmed, the BCT7 provides this capability. For publications which list frequencies around the United States, call the enclosed Mr. Scanner 800 number. The Bearcat Radio Club and other similar hobby clubs have publications, information on computer bulletin boards, and even contests for the radio enthusiast. Also, your local library has more information.


Pre-programmed frequencies specific to each state (except Hawaii). Pre-programming by the following categories: -Highway Patrol/State Police -Local Police and County Sheriffs -State Departments of Transportation (DOT) -Fire and Emergency Medical Services -News Media -Weather (continuous NOAA weather and Canadian Coast Guard broadcasts) 100 channels of user-programmable frequencies available -Program frequencies into each of the above banks, or -Program your own bank of 25 Private frequencies Highway Patrol Priority Alert -Receive audible and visual alert when within three miles of many Highway Patrol/State units CB Search - Search all 40 CB channels Band Search Search through 12 bands of radio spectrum for frequencies. 26 MHz - 956 MHz - Scan these frequency ranges with your BCT7. (Note: the frequency coverage is not totally continuous.) Data Skip - Skip certain data signals and unmodulated transmissions. Memory Backup - In case of a power failure, user-programmed frequencies are retained in memory for approximately 30 days.

Warning Light Adjustment

The Warning Light has three settings: Bright, Dim, and Off. Press SQUELCH to select Bright, Dim or Off. The WARNING light flashes and the alert tone beeps.

Press In

If select inyou displayOFF, the FLASH icon the reminds you the Warning Light is off.
WARNING: You can turn off the Warning Light and completely mute the Alert Tone at the same time. This deactivates the Warning Alert.

Power On Settings

When you turn the BCT7 off and then on again, the BCT7 will return to the last settings that were active. When you have chosen the state you will be driving in, and the mode (HIGHWAY PATROL, DOT, etc.), the BCT7 always returns to these settings.

Priority Channels

Each state preprogrammed in the BCT7 contains a number of Priority channels. The BCT7 automatically checks a states Priority channels every two seconds for activity. If there is activity on one of the Priority channels, the warning light will flash and the alarm tone will sound (see Warning Alert, page 11). You will experience a slight in the conversations you hear as the BCT7 checks the Priority channels. You can cancel the priority check and the interruptions in the conversations by pressing the H key to hold on the frequency. Note: The Warning Alert is inoperative while the scanner is on Hold. Remember to press the key again to return to normal priority-scan operation. Priority cannot be changed, but you can lock-out priority channels using the L key. Priority channels have been pre-determined by the manufacturer as those Highway Patrol frequencies most commonly used for mobile extenders and for car-to-car and aircraft-to-car operations. Mobile extenders re-transmit every radio broadcast received on the patrol car radio to the officers walkie-talkie at low-power. Every time any officer or dispatcher talks (transmits), the signal is broadcast like a beacon at low-power whether or not the officer is out of the car.

Scanning Fire, News, Weather, and Private Frequency Banks
Note: The Warning Alert does not work while scanning these banks. To scan Fire frequencies, To scan News frequencies, press F again. press F.
To scan Weather Frequencies, press W.

PRIVATE appears in the display and scanning begins two seconds later. When a transmission is received, the scanner stops on that frequency. When the transmission ends, a built-in two second delay feature holds the scanner on that frequency for a response. If there is no response, scanning resumes.
Note: Warning Alert does not work in this mode. When scanning stops on a desired To resume scanning, press H. frequency, press H to hold on that frequency as long as you like.
If the BCT7 stops on an undesired frequency, press H twice to force
the unit to start scanning before the end of that transmission. Or, lock out that frequency (see Frequency Lock Out)

Frequency Lock Out

You can lock out a frequency so it is not scanned. Lock out does not erase the frequency. You can restore the frequency to scanning whenever you wish.
Note: You can lock out up to 50 preprogrammed frequencies and 100 user-programmed frequencies. In Scan Mode
When the scanner stops on a frequency you dont want to hear, press L.
Scanning resumes immediately because that frequency is no longer in the scanning sequence.

In Hold Mode Press L.

LOCKOUT appears on the display. Scanning doesnt resume until you press H.

Lockout Tips

After you have locked out the 50th preprogrammed frequency (or 100th user programmed frequency), you may lock out a new frequency. However, the first frequency you locked out becomes unlocked to make room for the new frequency. You can lock out all the frequencies in a bank, if desired. However, if you do, pressing that bank key will emit an error tone and the scanner will not scan. If you lock out a preprogrammed frequency in one bank, and that frequency is programmed into another bank, the frequency is locked out of both banks.

Note: AIR appears when searching the Aircraft Band.

CB Channel Search

The 40 Citizens Band (CB) channels comprise one of the 12 search bands available in the BCT7. 1. Press B repeatedly until the CB band is active
2. After 2 seconds, the search begins through the 40 CB channels. Press < or > to change the channel search direction.
3. When the BCT7 finds CB communications, the CB channel and frequency displays.


Notes: In the SEARCH function, you can turn the Data Skip feature on and off. (See Data Skip, page 20.) For easy access to the CB search, do not change the search band from CB. Each time you access band search, the radio will begin searching in the CB channels automatically.

Hold/Resume While Searching
Press H to stop the search on any frequency of interest.
Press H to resume searching.

Data Skip

Your BCT7 automatically skips certain data channels which broadcast non-voice communications (primarily pagers). An icon in the display shows when Data Skip is on. This feature works in all modes except CB, AIR and Weather. To turn Data Skip OFF or ON: 1. Press Bkey repeatedly until SKIP appears.
2. Press Q within two seconds to turn Data Skip off (or on). The data icon appears in the display.

Connecting the Power

The BCT7 is designed to be used in any vehicle which has a 12-volt DC negative ground electrical system. If you cannot determine the polarity of your vehicle, consult your vehicle dealer for information. 1. Connect the BCT7 power cord directly to the fuse block or battery of your car. - OR Plug one end of the cigarette lighter power cord into your vehicles cigarette lighter. 2. Connect the power cord to the jack marked DC 13.8V on the back of the radio. 3. Attach the external antenna connector to the jack marked ANT.
The power cord provided with your BCT7 contains a 1-amp fuse. Whenever necessary, replace it only with the same type of fuse. Uniden recommends using an external antenna designed specifically for scanning radios. Do not use the telescoping antenna in a mobile installation.

Base Installation

In addition to mobile installation, you can operate the BCT7 as a base unit with the included AC Adapter and Telescoping Antenna. Note:

Use only the AC Adapter supplied with this unit.
1. Plug the telescoping antenna into the antenna jack on the rear of the unit. 2. Plug the AC Adapter into the jack marked DC 13.8V. 3. Plug the adapter into a 120V AC 60 Hz wall outlet. Operation of the scanner is the same as for mobile use.

Tips & Techniques

Leave the Band Search set for CB (CB follows 806-956 MHz and precedes 29-30 MHz). This way, whenever you wish to monitor CB radio traffic, you simply press the BAND button once. Another suggestion for highway driving would be to program CB channel 19 into one of the available HIGHWAY programmable channels in the BCT7. Truckers and other motorists also use other CB frequencies (such as 11 at times) for highway communications, but 19 is the most common channel. With Channel 19 always at the ready in your HIGHWAY setting, youll be sure to hear of accidents, traffic jams and other highway dangers well before you come upon them. Remember, though, that CB channels can be quite congested and they may tend to tie-up the BCT7 with unwanted conversation. On the open interstates, however, it should prove invaluable. IMPORTANT! If you have a CB transmitter in your vehicle, do not program a CB channel into the BCT7 unless youre sure you wont be transmitting on that channel (or even an adjacent channel). Otherwise, youll receive loud feedback through the BCT7s speaker. The Band Search feature also breaks down the bands into amateur radio Ham frequency bands which are very valuable during severe weather or for road condition and traffic information. Ham operators provide emergency communications for agencies such as the Red Cross and state civil preparedness, during tornado, hurricane or blizzard season. During morning or evening rush hours, hams will provide information on traffic as they ride to or from work. Ham channels can become congested with long conversations, however, and you may not wish to tie-up your BCT7 with these frequencies. For indoor use, extend the telescoping antenna to its full height. For UHF frequencies, shortening the antenna may improve the reception. 28
If your scanner receives strong interference or electrical noise, move the scanner or its antenna away from the source. If you are operating the scanner in a fringe area or need to improve reception, use an optional antenna designed for multi-band coverage. (You can purchase this type of antenna at a local electronics store.) If the plug at the end of the cable does not match the antenna jack, you may need to purchase an adapter.


A few state Highway Patrol agencies, and many local and county public safety services, utilize a new type of transmission scheme known as trunking. Trunking allows a number of agencies (such as city police, fire, highway and sewer departments), and/or a number of divisions within an agency (police patrol, detectives, radar teams, warrant servers.), to operate on a single radio system without interference from one another. The agencies may share a three to twenty or more channel radio system in which particular divisions hop about the assigned frequencies as they become available. A dispatcher may be communicating with a precincts patrol units on 856.7125 one moment, and then receive a reply from a patrol car 30 seconds later on 858.4875. In the meantime, 856.7125 will have been used by two sewer workers. It all happens transparently to the radio users. To them theyre the only people using the system and they never have to change channels. To the scanner user, however, it becomes a challenge to follow a conversation. All a scanner user can do is either wait for the radio to resume scanning to the next frequency or use H to move off of an uninteresting conversation.

To complicate matters, trunking radios are computer controlled. To effect the computer operation, data bursts and tones are broadcast over trunking frequencies. In the most common type of trunking system, a data frequency is selected for a 12 or 24 hour period. Scanner users are advised to LOCKOUT this frequency (so that the scanner doesnt stop each time it scans by the channel). The next time you turn the scanner on, another frequency, in the same system, may be used as the data channel. You will want to lockout this new data frequency but you must remember to unlock the old frequency which will now be used for voice transmissions.
Scanner Care & Maintenance Tips
Do not use the scanner in high-moisture areas such as the kitchen or bathroom. Do not plug the scanner into an outlet controlled by a wall switch as prolonged periods without power causes scanner memory loss. Avoid placing the unit in direct sunlight or near heating elements or vents.


If your BCT7 is not performing properly, try the steps listed below.


Scanner is not giving Warning Alerts.
Scanner is not working properly. Signal is weak or distorted. Improper reception. Scan wont stop. Incomplete reception. Weather Search (WX) wont work. Radio transmissions (conversations) are cutting in and out.
Check to see if Mute and Flash are both turned off. The Squelch threshold may be set too high. Check antenna connections. Some priority frequencies may be locked out. Make sure the frequency bank youre scanning is an Alert Frequency Bank (Highway, Police, DOT). Check power cord and in-line fuse. Check the Volume and Squelch settings. Check antenna and antenna connection, or change antenna. Check antenna and antenna connection, or change antenna. Reposition scanner. Check Squelch adjustment. Check antenna and antenna connection, or change antenna. Fringe area of reception. Check Squelch adjustment. Check Squelch adjustment. No active station within range. The PRIORITY system is checking for alarms. Use the H button to hold on a frequency without check of priority channels every two seconds.

Going by patrol cars and not receiving alarms.
The radio keeps locking-up on frequencies filled with strange noises or transmissions (aircraft communications, weather, etc.)
Make sure you are scanning one of the Warning Alert Frequency Banks - Highway, Police, or DOT. Check antenna connections. Conditions to activate the alarm are variable and depend upon the timing of the dispatcher transmissions and proximity of patrol car to your vehicle. Also, terrain and other factors may be involved. Officer has the ability to turn off the mobile extender when off-duty, or when going to court, etc., but will normally leave extender operating when on traffic duty. If youre monitoring user-programmed frequencies, switch to one of the preprogrammed frequency banks. Sometimes, in a heavily congested area with a lot of radio transmitters (an urban area or an area where TV/ radio towers are located), this always occurs. Try turning your squelch down or locking out the offending frequencies.
If you still cannot get satisfactory results, call the Uniden Customer Service Center at 1-800-297-1023, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Central, Monday through Friday.
