I recently purchased a hand held Uniden BC75XLT. I've never had one and here is my quandary. I can hear the "weather broadcast...I have 10 Bands programmed with local frequencies nothing locked out when I hit "scan", it only goes to band 1 ,I turn the knob or hit scan and it stays on band one at the top but scanner moves to the various frequencies with a band number to the left of the freq it sees. I can get nothing but constant static until it gets to the weather and that works but nothing else will. The instructions are not really all inclusive and I am wondering how I can get the scanner to pick up local police/fire etc? Can anyone assist me? Sorry I'm a scanner dummy .
