You can use the BC75XLT to monitor police and fire departments (including rescue and paramedics), NOAA weather transmissions, business/industrial radio, utilities, marine and amateur (ham radio) bands, and air band transmissions. Of course, scanning the 32,000 available frequencies can be time-consuming and frustrating, which is why Uniden added such functions as Close Call capture technology, which instantly tunes to signals from nearby transmitters to help you detect and identify local signals, and a comprehensive memory that holds up to 300 programmed channels. Receives conventional channels on the following frequencies: (25-54 MHz) (108 - 174 MHz) (406 - 512 MHz) To program the unit: Push Hold. This should bring up the first available channel, it should show B:1 Channel 1 and 000.000. To program your frequency in you will push in the Orange Function key and then let go. Immediately push in the E button and let go. You will then see a black box with PGM in it in the top right corner of screen, this means you are in program mode. Type in your frequency including the decimal point, when finished push in the E key and let go. This will enter in the frequency. To enter in another frequency turn the knob at the top right one click to the right and this will bring you to the next available channel. Follow step 5 and on. When finished entering in all of your frequencies you may hit scan. The scanner will now begin scanning your frequencies.

Before YOU buy this unit, Google the frequencies in your area so you know how many are encrypted ... it's likely that you won't be able to pick up much real-time emergency chatter anymore either.
I'll simplify - DO NOT BUY THIS ALLEGED SCANNER !!!!!
Al in all this Scanner is great tool to have during hurricane season.
I feel if this were to drop onto the floor, it would crack very easily.
We bought this because recently crime in our area has been on the rise, which is so sad being this neighborhood was very quiet. This actually alerted us when a break in was occurring in our neighborhood, and we were on the look out when we heard it come over the scanner.
What I like about this unit, is that it is very easy to set up, and instructions are included.
You will also receive a charging cord and this does take batteries so you can take it with you.
The buttons and screen light up when you press and hold the lower left button.
No two way communication with this one.
This arrived on time, and well protected.
If you feel that my review has helped you in any way, please hit the "yes" box below this review. I never know if I am actually helping others.
I have posted a picture of the unit and hoping Amazon will keep it here.
I bought this for my son to take to the train station. I had all the railfan guys down there trying to program it and they all got so frustrated and laughed about it. It kept and keeps locking out. The frustration comes when you get it working for just a couple minutes and then bam you're locked out and miss the rest of the train transmission. I hate it.
It looks like it really works for some people. But my advice is to spend the money and get a better scanner. That's what I'm researching now. Also, our fire and police are digital now so we need something newer.
The issues I have are that most of the police/fire departments around my area have gone digital and thus, this won't work for them. So again, there is nothing wrong with the actual device. Just know what your area has before you get caught up in the 'Police, Fire' advertising/description and avoid disappointment.
I haven't really had any good luck with weather info and quite frankly its just easier to use my smartphone to get actual weather information. So I don't see that as a selling point either.
I do wish there was a way to have the back-light of the screen to be on longer than it is. Too often its hard to see what the station is when I'm using the search mode to then lock in that station.
Overall, its a decent enough first time scanner for me.

1st thing we replaced was the stock antenna with a diamond antenna which improved frequency reception dramatically
rechargeable batteries are a must, regular AA batteries will not last
I would much prefer that the squelch button was variable in lieu of the preset 0-1-2 etc. selections
at setting 0 & 1 squelch there is a lot of radio noise making scanning impossible
at setting 2 squelch the noise filtering and frequency reception is much improved
the procedure to programming a frequency on a fly takes an effort
Doesn't pick up on trunked feeds, or digital (like my local police service), but for me that's OK.
