Test modes for Uniden scanners.
+
Test modes (hidden key presses and functions) for Uniden scanners.
  
To enter a test mode, hold the indicated keys while powering-on the scanner.
+
To enter a "Test Mode" (hidden easter eggs), hold the indicated key(s) while powering-on the scanner. In the column per scanner model, an '''X''' in the row corresponding to each, tested and verified to work. It is very likely almost all of the test modes verified for the BCD396T will also work on the some other of the various other Uniden models as well. Again, Try it and if it works, mark it as working here:
  
In the column for each scanner model, an '''X''' will be in the row corresponding to each test verified to work for that scanner model. If you verify that a test works for a scanner model, please update this page.
+
Don't forget to save your programming before you start. Page may be printed out for an ready-made list.
  
(It is very likely almost all of the test modes verified for the BCD396T will also work on the BCD996T/XT models as well.  Again, try it and if it works, mark it as working here.)

Test modes (hidden key presses and functions) for Uniden scanners.

To enter a "Test Mode" (hidden easter eggs), hold the indicated key(s) while powering-on the scanner. In the column per scanner model, an X in the row corresponding to each, tested and verified to work. It is very likely almost all of the test modes verified for the BCD396T will also work on the some other of the various other Uniden models as well. Again, Try it and if it works, mark it as working here:

Don't forget to save your programming before you start. Page may be printed out for an ready-made list.
