Setting Up The Scanner
These guidelines will help you install and use your new scanner:
• If your scanner receives interference or electrical noise, move the scanner
or its antenna away from the source. You might also try changing the
height or angle of the antennas.
• Use an optional mono earphone or mono headset with proper impedance
for private listening.
• Do not use the scanner in high-moisture environments such as in the
kitchen or bathroom.
• Avoid placing the scanner in direct sunlight or near heating elements or
vents.
Connecting Power
• Insert the supplied AC Adapter’s
barrel plug into the power jack
on the back of the scanner. Then
plug the Adapter into a standard
240
household outlet that supplies
240V AC, 50Hz. Do not plug the
adapter into a switch controlled
outlet.
• Open the battery compartment
Model AAD-008S
and insert 3 AA batteries.
Be sure to note the polarity markings in the
battery compartment. You can use either
alkaline or rechargeable batteries, but the
scanner will not recharge batteries in the
compartment.
• Use only fresh alkaline AA batteries.
Rechargeable batteries can be used, but
battery life is shorter than with alkaline
batteries.
• Always remove old or weak batteries.
Batteries can leak chemicals that destroy
electronic circuits.
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard,
alkaline, or rechargeable) or rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.

UBC330CRS OM.indd 13
Setting Up The Scanner
10/9/09 12:42:16 PM
Note that the batteries are intended to provide backup power for the clock and
for scanning for a short time. When the backup batteries becomes too low,
appears. Promptly replace the batteries.
When you either install batteries or connect the AC Adapter to a standard
Australia/New Zealand wall outlet, the scanner powers on and goes to
STANDBY mode. The display shows the initial clock time of 12:00 AM. The
scanner remains in STANDBY mode.
Connecting an
Antenna
The scanner uses an external
loop antenna to receive AM
broadcast stations and an
external telescopic antenna
to receive all other signals.
Connect the supplied rod
antenna by pushing the
antenna’s connector onto the
antenna jack on the back of
the scanner and twisting it to the desired angle. Connect the two wires from the
loop antenna to the AM RADIO ANT terminals on the back of the scanner.
* Carefully remove the tube inserted before using the AM
Antenna Jack. When the Jack is not in use, keep the tube
mounted.
You can also use an external antenna (not supplied) to help to bring in weaker
signals. Use RG58, 50-Ohm lead with a BNC connector to connect the antenna
to the scanner. Connect and mount the antenna according to the instructions
provided with the antenna.

Using AM/FM/TV Channel Memory
Your scanner has 30 AM/FM memories for quick
channel recall (10 for AM, 20 for FM/TV). To store
a channel into memory, first select the band (AM,
FM1 or FM2). Then, directly select the channel
you want to store (see above). While listening to
the channel, press and hold the number button
that corresponds to the memory you want to
save the channel into for 2 seconds. The scanner
switches to the Memory mode for the current
band.
To quickly recall a channel, select the band, select the channel memory mode
by pressing PRI/MEM, then tap the number button that corresponds to the
memory where the channel is stored.

Using the Scanner Memories
Your scanner has 100 memories you can store
frequencies into for scanning. The memories
are arranged in 10 banks of 10 memories each.
While scanning, you can quickly select which
bank to scan by pressing the number button that
corresponds to the bank you want to turn on or off
for scanning. To select the scanner mode, slide the
mode switch to Scanner.
Programming Memories
You will first need to determine the frequencies you want to program.
This varies widely depending on what you want to listen to and your geographic
area. There are many frequency reference sources available on the internet that
can get you started. One such source,
http://www.radioreference.com, has a diverse listing of many conventional
frequencies.
Make a list of the frequencies you want to program, then organize them in up
to 10 groups of 10 or fewer and fill out the table below. It always helps to plan
and organize what you want to do before you start, so don’t skip this important
step. (The numbers in the left-hand columns below correspond to your scanner’s
memory numbers.)

Once you fill out the above chart, follow these steps to enter or change a
frequency in a memory:
1. Press E/PGM to enter the program mode (the scanner turns on the PGM
icon).
2. If the current channel is not the one you want to program, enter the memory
number then press HOLD.
3. Enter the frequency including the decimal point, then press E/PGM.
4. To program the next memory, press s or t and repeat step 3. To program
a different memory, repeat from step 2.
5. To exit program mode, press HOLD or SCAN or change the scanner’s
mode.
Notes:
• Any frequency you program replaces the previous memory contents.
• If you enter a frequency you have already stored in a different memory
in Step 3, the scanner beeps and displays the channel where you have
previously stored the frequency. If you want to store the frequency
anyway, press E/PGM a second time in Step 3.
• To clear the contents of a memory, enter “0” in Step 3.
• Channels you program are automatically unlocked (see “Locking/
Unlocking Memories) and have Delay turned on (See “Setting Channel
Delay”).
Selecting a Memory
To select a single memory to monitor, press HOLD. The scanner turns on the
21
UBC330CRS OM.indd 21
Using the Scanner Memories
10/9/09 12:42:18 PM
HOLD icon. Then, select a memory by pressing s or t to go to the memory or
input the memory number then press HOLD.
Scanning Memory Banks
To scan the memories you have programmed, press SCAN. The scanner scans
all unlocked programmed memories in enabled memory banks, stopping on
a memory when it detects a transmission. To turn on/off memory banks while
scanning, press the number button that corresponds to the memory bank you
want to enable or disable.
Locking/Unlocking Memories
You can lock memories so that they are not scanned, even if their bank is turned
on. Simply press L/O when the scanner stops on a transmission on the frequency
or manually select the memory, then press L/O. The scanner turns on the L/O
icon when it is set to a memory that is locked out.
To unlock a memory, manually select the memory, then press L/O. The scanner turns
off the L/O icon and includes the memory when scanning its bank.
To unlock all memories, press and hold L/O for 2 seconds, the scanner beeps
twice and the L/O icon disappears.
Using Priority Scan
You can set one memory in each bank as a priority memory. If you turn on the
Priority feature, the scanner will check the priority memories in enabled banks
every 2 seconds, even if it has stopped on a transmission on another memory.
To set the memory in a bank to be the priority memory, manually select the
memory then, while holding on the memory, press E/PGM to put the scanner
in program mode and press PRI. The scanner turns on the PRI icon when it is
stopped on a memory designated as priority.
To turn on Priority Scan, press PRI while the scanner is scanning or holding
on a memory (but not in program mode). You will notice a short break in audio
every 2 seconds as the scanner checks the enabled priority memories. If there
is a transmission on a priority memory, the scanner will immediately tune to that
memory.

Setting Channel Delay
You can set the scanner to pause for 2 seconds at the end of a transmission on
a memory. This is useful to help prevent missed replies. Delay is turned on by
default when you program a memory. To turn Delay off (or back on), first, select
the channel. Then, press DELAY.
The scanner turns on the DELAY icon for memories that have been programmed
with delay.

Searching for Active Frequencies
Many people enjoy searching for the unknown frequencies that are in use in their
area but are not posted to any site or in any publication. The UBC330CRS has
two ways to search: Limit searching that searches between two set frequencies
and Service Searching that searches for specific types of services.
Using Limit Search
Programming an Upper/Lower Limit
Follow these steps to program an Upper and Lower limit for the limit search:
1. Press SEARCH then HOLD. The scanner holds on the current search
frequency.
2. Enter one of the range limits, then press E/PGM.
Press s or t then enter the other range limit , and press E/PGM.
Searching the Selected Range
After entering the limits (or use the default limits), press SEARCH. The scanner
starts searching from the lower range up to the higher range.
To change the direction of the search, press s or t.
Using Service Search
You can select any of Police, Marine, Rail Road, AM-CB and UHF-CB channels
for active frequencies in your area.
Selecting a Service to Search
Press SVC to enter the service search mode, then press the button
corresponding to the service you want to search. When the scanner
stops on a transmission, you can force it to resume searching by pressing
s or t.

Saving a Found Frequency into a Scan Memory
When the scanner stops on the frequency you want to save, press HOLD to
hold on that frequency. Then, press E/PGM. The scanner displays the lowestnumbered empty memory (or the last-scanned memory if all memories are used).
Use s/t to select the memory to hold the frequency, then press E/PGM to
store the frequency into the memory.
Search Lockouts
If the scanner stops on a frequency that you don’t want to hear, you can lock it
out. When locked out, the scanner won’t stop on the frequency in either Limit
Search or Service Search.
Simply press L/O when the scanner stops on the frequency to lock the
frequency out. To unlock the frequency, during search press HOLD.
Then manually step to the frequency using the s/t keys. When you have
selected the frequency, press L/O.

Care and Maintenance
General Use
• Turn the scanner off before disconnecting the power.
• If memory is lost, simply reprogram each channel.
• Always press each button firmly until you hear the entry tone for that key
entry.
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 might provide better reception.
• Also try changing the height or angle of the antenna.
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.
Repairs
Do not attempt any repair. The scanner contains no user serviceable parts.
Contact the Uniden Customer Service Center or take it to a qualified repair
technician.
Birdies
All radios can receive “birdies” (undesired signals). If your scanner stops during
Scan mode and no sound is heard, it might be receiving a birdie. Birdies are
internally generated signals inherent in the electronics of the scanner. Press L/O
to lock out the channel.
Resetting the Scanner (Clearing all Memories)
To reset the scanner to factory defaults, turn off the scanner. Then, while holding
down 2, 9, and HOLD, turn on the scanner. All scanner memory contents are
erased.
