Scanner Question

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

Scanner Question

Post by Turkeytop » Fri Jan 14, 2022 12:05 am

I have a Uniden BC 125 AT handheld scanner. It's all locked up. Any key I press, the display says the keyboard is locked. How can I unlock it?


.Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?

Looks like I might have to do a hard reset. I'll lose everything I've entered in the last two years.

Can't do a hard reset. That involves pressing three keys simultaneously. Of course, with the keypad locked, it can't respond to that.

Monday I'll try calling Uniden to see if they offer any kind of tech support.

I just took a look at the specs for your handheld scanner, If it doesn't do DIGI modes or 800-900 MHz, you already need a new scanner :shock:
Maybe OK if you listen to aircraft, GMRS, FRS and marine radio a lot ...
