Uniden scanner test modes

From The RadioReference Wiki

Revision as of 10:02, 10 July 2012 by Plaws (talk | contribs) (OK, think I'm done. Someone needs to add the XT line.)

Test modes for Uniden scanners.

To enter a test mode, hold the indicated keys while powering-on the scanner.

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.

(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.)
