Precautions
Before you use this scanner, please read
and observe the following:
This may be particularly true of the type of
earphone that is placed in the ear canal.
Earphone Warning!
WARNING!
Uniden does not represent this unit to be
waterproof. To reduce the risk of fire or
electrical shock, do not expose this unit to
rain or moisture.
Be sure to use only the recommended
optional monaural earphone (EPOO9). You
may also use a 320 stereo headset. Use of
an incorrect earphone or stereo headset
may be potentially hazardous to your
hearing. The output of the Phone jack is
monaural, but you will hear it in both
headphones of a stereo headset.
Set the Volume to a comfortable audio level
coming from the speaker before plugging in
the monaural earphone or a stereo headset
of the proper impedance (320). Otherwise
you might experience some discomfort or
possible hearing damage if the Volume suddenly becomes too loud because of the Volume Control or Squelch Control setting.
General Battery Warning!
Do not short circuit any Battery.
Do not discard Batteries in a fire; they may
explode.
Nickel-Cadmium Battery Warning!
When using Nickel-Cadmium Batteries with
this product, take note of the following
warnings:
Do not charge Nickel-Cadmium Batteries with
any charger other than the one supplied with

Scanner Basics
To use your scanner with confidence, it's
extremely helpful to understand the
following scanner basics.
Banks
and Channels
Banks and channels are the way stored
frequencies are organized in your scanner.
.
.
A channel is a memory location where
you store a frequency. The channels in
the UBC3000XL T are numbered 1 - 400.
A bank is a group of channels. The
UBC3000XL T has 20 banks with 20
channels in each.
You can turn each bank on or off to control
whether its channels are included during
scanning. When you turn off a bank, its
channels are not erased, but are only
temporarily excluded from scanning. This
allows you to customise your scanning
without constantly deleting and
re-programming the channel frequencies.
You can also temporarily lock out
individual channels within a bank during
scanning. This lets you further
customise your scanning without
deleting channel frequencies. See
"Locking Out Channels" on Page 21.
Scanning
Searching
Versus
Scanning and searching are similar in
that they both involve finding active
frequencies within a group of
frequencies. The difference is Scanning
looks only at a group of programmed
frequencies that are stored in the scanner's
channels and grouped into banks.

How Squelch
Works
The squelch circuit in your scanner is like a
gate. If it is too Iow, everything gets through
... noise, weak signals, and strong signals.

When the gate is correctly set, strong
signals get through, but weaker signals and

The Search
In the Search Mode, the scanner looks for any
active frequencies within a range of
frequencies you select. You can search the
entire range of the scanner, but it is best to
select a narrower range, so that you have a
better chance of finding all the active channels.

Locking Out a Frequency
Locking Out Frequencies
When the scanner stops on a frequency you
want to lock out:
Note:
This feature
is similar
to locking
out a
programmed channel, except you can only
lock out 50 frequencies. You can lock out
any number of channels.
During a search, you might repeatedly
encounter frequencies that you are not
interested in. Also, all scanners are subject
to receiving internally generated frequencies
(called birdies) that stop your scanner's
search when there is no real signal present.
See "UBC3000XL T Birdies" on Page 43.
In either case, you can lock out up to 50
such frequencies to make your scanner
search more efficiently. If you try to lock out
more than 50 channels, the 51st channel
replaces the first channel in memory.

Care & Maintenance
Battery
Maintenance
Rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries
typically suffer from a memory effect that
gradually reduces their capacity over time.
I
After two or three months of use, if you
notice that the battery provides power for a
slightly shorter time on each charge, do the
following.
1. Leave the scanner on until the Iow
battery warning sounds and the [Iow
batt] indicator appears.
2.
Recharge the battery for 14-16 hours to
ensure a full charge.
General
.
Use
Turn off the scanner before removing
the battery.
. Always write down the programmed
channels/frequencies in case of a
memory loss.
.
Always firmly press each scanner key
so that you hear the entry tone.
Location
.
.
.
If strong interference or electrical noise
is received, move the scanner. A higher
location usually results in better
reception.
Do not use the scanner is high-moisture
environments, such as a kitchen or
bathroom.
Avoid placing the scanner in direct
sunlight or near heating elements or
vents.
Cleaning
. Disconnect the AC adaptor/charger
while you clean the scanner.
. Clean only the outside of the scanner
I'
with a mild detergent.
. To prevent scratches, do not use
abrasive cleaners or solvents to clean
the scanner.
..
Do not rub the display window.
Do not use excessive amounts of water.
Repairs
.
Do not attempt any repairs. The scanner
contains no user-serviceable parts.
Contact the Uniden Customer Service
Division, or take the scanner to a
qualified repair technician.
