    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Unidentified Bc125AT handheld scanner (how to change banks/channels)

Please consider me the beginner of beginners. I have a Bc125AT and used their software to input and save some police frequencies. Now the big question...... How do I change banks/channels so I can just go to 1 specific channel within a bank to listen to? I don't want to scan for traffic to listen to. I want to go to 1 channel if something is going on that I want to monitor. Sorry if this is a repeated question but I'm posting this via my smartphone and it's a bit hard to navigate forums on a smartphone. Thanks in advance

From page 46 of the manual:

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 or if you want to monitor a specific channel.
1. To manually select a channel, press Hold and enter the channel number.
2. Press Hold again.
