How do I program my (insert DMA Model) scanner?

The method of programming is confusing. Are there any shortcuts to make this task easier?

The manual is very hard to read/confusing/worthless. Are there any better ones?


Welcome to the Programming Your Uniden Scanner article. At some point, we all end up scratching our heads, and wishing there were an easier way to program our scanners, particularly when there is a new memory management method involved. Those that were involved with banked scanning for years often find the new DMA scanners particularly difficult.

The links below will be a big help in getting over the hurdle. We have several shortcut articles for the first generation of Uniden's digital trunktrackers. In addition we have an article that should be helpful for those who have the BCT8 and are having trouble with programming a trunked system. We also have more detailed information on the Uniden Home Patrol and its companion Sentinel program. We also have user's guides for programming scanners using software.

Most newer PCs have no serial ports, so you need to make the connection between the scanner and PC via an USB device.Please see our Connecting scanners via USB article for more information and tips on how to set this up properly.
