About Uniden 
Uniden America Corporation, the North American subsidiary of Japan-based Uniden Corporation, manufactures and markets wireless consumer electronic products including home security and video security systems, Bearcat® scanners, FRS/GMRS radios, marine radios, radar detectors, dash cams, and other wireless personal communications products. Based in Irving, Texas, Uniden sells its products through retailers and distributors throughout North, Central, and South America.


Be sure to use only a monaural earphone with this scanner. You can also use an optional stereo headset. Use of an incorrect earphone or mono headset might be potentially hazardous to your hearing. The output of the phone jack is monaural, but you will hear it in both headphones of a stereo headset.

Set the volume to a comfortable audio level coming from the speaker before plugging in the monaural earphone or headset. Otherwise, you might experience some discomfort or possible hearing damage if the volume suddenly becomes too loud because of the volume control or squelch control setting. This might be particularly true of the type of earphone that is placed in the ear canal.


Uniden does not represent this unit to be waterproof. To reduce the risk of fire or electrical shock, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture.


IMPORTANT! This scanning radio has been manufactured so that it will not tune to the radio frequencies assigned by the FCC for cellular telephone usage. The Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, as amended, makes it a federal crime to intentionally intercept cellular or cordless telephone transmissions or to market this radio when altered to receive them. The installation, possession, or use of this scanning radio in a motor vehicle may be prohibited, regulated, or require a permit in certain states, cities, and/or local jurisdictions. Your local law enforcement officials should be able to provide you with information regarding the laws in your community.


Changes or modifications to this product not expressly approved by Uniden, or operation of this product in any way other than as detailed by this Users Guide, could void your authority to operate this product.


This scanner has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a scanning receiver, under Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This scanner generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used by the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.

There is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this scanner does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the scanner on and off, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the scanner and the receiver.

This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

  1. this device may not cause harmful interference, and
  2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

This device complies with Industry Canada license-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

  1. this device may not cause interference, and
  2. this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.


Your scanner covers frequencies used by many different groups, including police and fire departments, ambulance services, government agencies, private companies, amateur radio services, military operations, pager services, and wireline (telephone and telegraph) service providers. It is legal to listen to almost every transmission your scanner can receive. However, there are some transmissions that you should never intentionally listen to.

These include:

  • Telephone conversations (cellular, cordless, or other private means of telephone signal transmission)
  • Pager transmissions
  • Any scrambled or encrypted transmissions

According to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), you are subject to fines and possible imprisonment for intentionally listening to, using, or divulging the contents of such a conversation unless you have the consent of a party to the conversation (unless such activity is otherwise illegal). This scanner has been designed to prevent the reception of cellular telephone transmissions and the decoding of scrambled transmissions. This is done to comply with the legal requirement that scanners be manufactured so they are not easy to modify to pick up these transmissions. Do not open your scanner’s case to make any modifications that could allow it to pick up transmissions that are illegal to monitor. Modifying or tampering with your scanner’s internal components or using it in a way other than as described in this manual could invalidate your warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. In some areas, mobile and/or portable use of this scanner is unlawful or requires a permit. Check the laws in your area. It is also illegal in many areas (and a bad idea everywhere) to interfere with the duties of public safety officials by traveling to the scene of an incident without authorization.


  • Trunk Tracker V Operation – follows conversations on analog Motorola, Motorola Astro 25 (APCO 25), P25 One-Frequency Trunk, EDACS, EDACS SCAT, and LTR trunked radio systems, including systems in VHF, UHF, 700 MHz, 800 MHz, and 900 MHz bands.
  • APCO 25 Phase I and Phase II Support  – allows you to receive transmissions with these decoding protocols.
  • Dynamically Allocated Channel Memory – organized into ‘Systems’, ‘Sites’, (within trunking systems), ‘Groups’ (within systems), and channels (within groups). Up to 500 systems, 1,000 total sites (max 256 per system), 20 groups per system, and 25,000 channels (500 max IDs or 1,000 frequencies per system).
  • Multi-Site Trunking – lets you program the scanner to share trunked system IDs across multiple sites without duplicating IDs, and turn each site on and off independently so that you can select the best site to scan for your area.
  • Control Channel Only Scanning – allows you to enter just the control channels to trunk track a Motorola system and the scanner will find the voice channels.
  • System/Channel Number Tagging – number tags allow you to quickly navigate to a specific system or channel. You can assign number tags to systems, channels, service searches, and custom search ranges. You can also assign a number tag to the ‘Close Call’ system created during ‘Close Call Auto Store’ and the temporary system ‘Close Call Hits’.
  • Band Scope Mode – band Scope mode is a special type of search mode where the scanner displays the strength of any signal it finds.
  • Priority/Priority Plus Scan – priority channels let you keep track of activity on your most important channels while monitoring other channels for transmissions and you can scan just the priority channels.
  • Priority ID Scan – allows you to set priority to talk group IDs.
  • Preemptive Priority – a feature that works on Motorola systems. If the Motorola system has priority channels, and you assign one of those talk groups as a priority in the scanner, then when one of those channels becomes active, the scanner will jump to it even if it is on a different system voice channel (i.e. it preempts your current reception).
  • EDACS ESK Support – provides the ability to monitor analog talk groups on those systems.
  • Adjustable Scan/Search Delay/Resume – set a delay of up to 30 seconds or a forced resume of up to 10 seconds. (per system or search).
  • Intermediate Frequency Exchange – changes the IF used for a selected channel/ frequency to help avoid image and other mixer-product interference.
  • Individual Channel Volume Offset – allows you to adjust the volume offset for each channel.
  • Control Channel Data Output – allows the analysis of control channel data without the need to perform invasive modifications to the scanner.
  • Private Systems – lets you flag a system so that it cannot be read out of the scanner or modified (only with optional software).
  • Key Safe Mode – lets you hand the scanner to a novice user and prevent programming from being modified.
  • Start-up Configuration – you can program each of your conventional systems, trunked sites, service searches, or custom searches with a ‘Startup Key’ (0-9) so that when you power up the scanner and press the key number, just those systems/sites/ searches assigned to the key will be enabled for the scan (groups are not affected).
  • Location-Based Scanning – using an optional GPS unit you can scan your systems based on a set range from your current location.
  • GPS (Location-Based) Alerts – notifies you when you are near an area you have programmed as a dangerous road, dangerous intersection, or a general point of interest.
  • Analog and Digital AGC – helps automatically balance the volume level between different radio systems.
  • Adaptive Digital Threshold – automatically sets the digital decode threshold for APCO 25 systems.
  • Search with Scan Operation – lets you include and/or assign quick keys to selected service/custom search ranges during scan operation.
  • 100 Quick Keys – you can scan conventional systems/trunked sites, groups, and searches by assigning them to quick keys.
  • 3 Search Keys – you can assign 3 of the number keys to start a search range, ToneOut search, or view the ‘Band Scope’ mode.
  • Temporary Lockout – automatically unlock temporarily locked out channels/ systems/searches/locations when you cycle power.
  • CTCSS/DCS/NAC Tone Decode – decodes and displays Continuous Tone Code Squelch System tones being transmitted and plays Digital Coded Squelch and NAC being received.
  • CTCSS/DCS/NAC Search – lets you search for CTCSS, DCS, or NAC tones when it finds an active frequency in search and close call modes.
  • Close Call RF Capture Technology – lets you set the scanner so it detects and provides information about nearby radio transmissions. Close Call ‘Do-Not-Disturb’ checks for Close Call activity in between channel reception so active channels are not interrupted.
  • Close Call Temporary Store – temporarily stores and scans the last 10 Close Call hits in the ‘Hits with Scan’ system.
  • Fire Tone-Out Standby/Tone Search – lets you set the scanner to alert you if a two-tone sequential page is transmitted. You can set up to 10 settings (transmit frequency, tone frequencies) then select one for standby monitoring. The scanner will also search and display unknown tones.
  • Frequency/ID Auto Search and Store – the scanner can be set to automatically store all active frequencies from a service or limit search in a conventional system you select or automatically store all new talk group IDs into a trunked system you select.
  • Custom Alerts – you can program your scanner to alert you when a channel is received, you receive a Close Call hit, a talk group ID is transmitted with an emergency alert, or you get close to a POI (Point of Interest)/Dangerous Road/ Dangerous Crossing, or you receive a Tone-Out hit. For each alert in the scanner, you can select from 9 different tone patterns, 15 volume settings, and 2 blink patterns.
  • Repeater Reverse – allows the scanner to try to switch to the repeater if an input when the frequency is found.
  • Broadcast Screen – allows the scanner to ignore hits on known broadcast frequencies including pager frequencies in search and Close Call modes. You can also program up to 10 custom frequency ranges that the scanner will ignore.
  • Text Tagging – you can name each system, site, group, channel, talk group ID, custom search range, location, Tone-Out, and SAME group, using up to 16 characters per name.
  • SAME Weather Alert/Priority  – (with programmable FIPS codes) Lets your scanner alert you when a SAME weather alert is transmitted on a NOAA weather channel. The scanner also displays the alert type.
  • Adjustable Hold (Scan) Time per System/Search – allows you to adjust the length of time spent scanning each system or search.
  • PC Control/Clone – you can transfer data to and from your scanner and your personal computer, and control the scanner using a computer.
  • Multi-Level Display – makes the display easy to see in dim light using three light levels.
  • Signal Strength Meter – shows the signal strength for the more powerful transmissions.
  • 12 Service Searches – frequencies are preset in separate marine, railroad, air, CB radio, racing, FM broadcast, public safety, military air, FRS/GMRS, news, amateur radio, and special (itinerant) searches to make it easy to find specific transmissions.
  • 10 Custom Searches – lets you program up to 10 custom search ranges.
  • Quick Search – lets you search from the currently-tuned frequency or channel or enter a frequency and start searching.
  • Automatic Channel Setup – accepts frequencies on any valid channel step, even if it does not fall within the band plan’s default steps.
  • Configurable Band Defaults – allows you to set the step (5, 6.25, 7.5, 8.33, 10, 12.5,15, 20, 25, 50, or 100 kHz) and modulation (AM, FM, NFM, WFM, or FMB) for 31 different bands.
  • Attenuator – you can set the scanner’s attenuator to reduce the input strength of strong signals by about 20 dB per channel, search band, close call band, or trunked system.
  • Duplicate Frequency Alert – alerts you if you try to enter a duplicate name or frequency already stored in the scanner.
  • Search Lockouts – you can lock out up to 500 frequencies (250 temporary, 250 permanent) in search or close call search.

You have to create systems first, create sites in the trunking systems (where the trunking frequencies now go), create groups in the systems, create channels in the groups, and then program the frequencies or IDs into the channels. Or, you can Quick store freqs or Quick store IDs (only after you program the trunking system and site). Trunking IDs only go into trunking system groups and conventional frequencies go into conventional system groups. You can only store one trunking system per ‘system’. You can store up to 500 systems, up to 20 groups per system, and up to 1000 frequencies or 500 IDs per group. Total channels are limited to about 25,000. Also, remember that conventional frequencies and IDs are considered channels.

Note for Private Systems: Using software, you can flag a system so that it cannot be read out of the scanner, modified, or deleted. There are no settings in the scanner to do this. You can still use the system as you would normally (system/channel lockouts/unlock, volume offset, attenuate, etc), but you cannot access it in the menu. Also, you cannot upload the system back to the scanner and must delete or modify it with the software.

When connected to a GPS, you can program specific location information which will trigger an alert from the scanner. The scanner becomes an extension of the GPS device. Even if you don’t use the scanner to scan, you can enhance your GPS unit with the information the scanner provides. The scanner also allows you to program audio and/or visual alerts for:

Point of Interest (POI): Store location and range. If you approach the set location, the radio sounds an alert up to 4 miles/km from the center.

Dangerous Road/Dangerous Crossing: Stores location, direction of travel, and speed. If you are traveling at a speed greater than that specified, in the direction specified, and if you are within range of the set location, the scanner sounds an alert at 1, .5, and .1 miles/km from the point. These range distances are also automatic and fixed. You can also temporarily lockout (cancel) any combination of these alerts.


  • Connect BC-GPS (receiver) and BC-UTGC (cable) to the USB port, following the instructions provided with them.
  • The scanner displays ‘Searching for Satellite’ in GPS Display Mode until it receives the signal from the satellite if you have your connections and baud rate set correctly. The first time the scanner starts receiving a signal from the GPS, it beeps and briefly displays ‘GPS Connected’ and (temporarily) locks and unlocks all sites and groups that are ‘enabled for scan’, unlocked, and whose quick key is enabled according to your current location. If you have a lot of data programmed, it might take the scanner a couple of minutes to complete the process. Once the scanner completes the initial GPS review, if you move into or out of an area covered by a site/group, the scanner beeps and displays the name of the site/group and whether it is being locked or unlocked.
