• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

I'm new to the radio scanning forums but I own a Uniden Bearcat BC 855 XLT. I found it in my basement with no manual, I found out how to work everything except the "Search" button. I heard that you need to put in 2 frequencies then press "limit" then search, all that shows up is "error". Sorry if this has already been posted if it has close it and post a link.
Thank you.

Thank you, but That was for purchasing the manual. I've figured out many of the basic controls, and have looked for a manual I don't have to purchase online. I've been having trouble with the Search button only.

If it's anything like my Pro-2045 (which was made by uniden), try this:
Program
Limit
<frequency> <Enter>
Limit
<frequency> <Enter>

Up or down arrow button.

Try variations on that.
