Extended Warranty (added to 80% of orders!)

The scanners we carry do come with a 1-year limited parts and labor warranty. As with most electronics, it does not cover accidental damage or liquid damage—just factory defects. After the manufacturer’s warranty expires you would have to pay out of pocket for any repairs or replacements should your unit malfunction. With the Police Scannr Outlet Extended Warranty, you'll have peace of mind that your scanner is still covered for an additional year.

    Why does my handheld scanner not stay fully charged?

    If there is any sort of glitch in the power, it will reset the charging dock. Therefore, the screen will continue to state it is charging.

    How do I turn on this scanner?

    Handheld scanners are powered on by pressing the power button which has the Universal Power symbol:  

    I just purchased a BC 125at - my fire dept is switching to digital, will I be able to receive their signals

    No, The BC125AT covers analog-only, A Digital Radio would be required to monitor the future changes. 

    Current Digital Handheld Models: BCD325P2, Homepatrol-2, BCD436HP, SDS100.

    how to program BC125AT from radioreference I am a member of radioreferance

    If you're programming the radio manually through the keypad you would hit Function + Program, then enter the desired frequency and press E.

    I also recommend checking out our BC125AT youtube video, This will show you the operation of the scanner and how to program it using the Uniden Sentinel software.

    Uniden BC125AT Walk-Through

    I have a BC125AT can you program it? Thanks

    We don't offer remote programming for this model unfortunately, We do have a Youtube video Walkthrough I recommend though.

    What is the highest and lowest frequency in megahertz does this scanner go to?

    BC125AT: 25-54, 108-174, 225-380 and 400-512 MHz

    Is this one Digital

    No, Digital scanners can be found here: https://www.bearcatwarehouse.com/digital

    Do i need to buy a charging dock for this scanner? How do i charge the batteries that come with it? Thanks.

    The BC125AT charges through a USB cord, that comes with the scanner.  You can plug it into your computer (not Apple Computer) or into the wall.
