I've just bought this scanner but don't know how to begin. I'm not particularly intelligent with these types of devices and am struggling to understand the manual. All I want to do to begin with is scan but apart from a 12.5 airband search which brings in nothing its completey empty. The manual talks about setting up a system but I'm clueless. I thought there would be a manual tune or id be able to input the direct frequency I wanted. I'm also on band plan 1, is this correct for Britain ? Any advice would be great. Until a few weeks ago I didn't even know scanning existed. I only bought the uniden because my communications receiver onlygoes up to 30 mhz and I wanted a higher range receiver.
