Introduction
The BC 235XLT is a brand new state-of-the-art
information radio with automatic scanning capabilities. It
can store frequencies such as police, fire/emergency,
marine, air, amateur, and other communications into 10
banks of 30 channels each. And you can scan all 300
channels at super fast Turbo Scan speed.
With the BC 235XLT, you can search for frequencies at
fast speed. You can also search vhf frequencies at super
fast Turbo speed.
Caution: Changes or modifications to this product not
expressly approved by Uniden, or operation of
this product in any way other than as detailed
by this Operating Guide, could void your
authority to operate this product.
What is Scanning?
Unlike standard AM or FM radio stations, most two-way
communications do not transmit continuously. The BC
235XLT scans programmed channels until it finds an
active frequency.
Scanning stops on an active frequency and remains on
that channel as long as the transmission continues. When
the transmission ends, the scanning cycle resumes until
another transmission is received.
What is Searching?
The can search each of 12 bands to find active
frequencies. This is different from scanning, because you
can search for frequencies that have not been
programmed into your . You can choose between two
speeds for the search feature. With Turbo Search, a new
feature for Uniden scanners, you can search the VHF FM
bands at up to 3 times the normal speed.
When the is searching for active frequencies, it is in
“Search mode” or “Turbo Search mode.” When you stop
the search with HOLD, it is in “Search Hold mode”.
With both Turbo Scan and Turbo Search, your is truly a
Twin Turbo Scanner.

Location
Do not use the scanner in high-moisture
environments such as the kitchen or bathroom.
Avoid placing the unit in direct sunlight or near
heating elements or vents.
If the scanner receives strong interference or
electrical noise, move it or its antenna away from
the source of the noise. If possible, a higher
elevation, may provide better reception. Also try
changing the height or angle of the antenna.
Do not plug the scanner into an outlet controlled by
a wall switch because long power interruptions
may cause memory loss.
Cleaning
Disconnect the power to the unit before cleaning.
Clean the outside of the scanner with a mild
detergent. To prevent scratches, do not use
abrasive cleaners or solvents. Be careful not to rub
the LCD window.
Do not use excessive amounts of water.
31
Repairs
Do not attempt any repair. The scanner contains
no serviceable parts. Contact the Uniden
Customer Service Center or take it to a qualified
repair technician.

if it is still stored in memory and is correct.
5. It’s possible that none of the programmed
frequencies are currently active.
Scan won’t start.
1. Press the Skey again.
2. Adjust the SQUELCH control.
3. Check to see if all channels are locked
out.
Weather Scan won’t work.
