It's all on here feller. YouTube has a few videos showing how to manually store frequencies and avoid the 'locked' problem.

Haha I'm sounding as though I know what I'm on about - I'm still waiting for the postman with mine. :)

The UBC125XLT User Manual is, dare I say, cryptic especially if you are new to scanners.

There are videos etc. out there but you may find my Scan125 Control Program User Manual (no you don't have to use the free software .... but you will :biggrin: ) has answered many questions about "what is what" etc. etc.

See:

and:

Here to help.

Hi,press "HOLD" on any frequency,then turn the control knob either way to scroll through what you've got saved.

You'll end up with a sheet of paper with some of the frequencies etc as you move through them.

Use the Scan125 software and you can see the lot on screen.
I found it easy once I'd loaded the driver.

Enjoy

Yep that 125 software looks good, im mostly getting Buses and airplanes at night but have chanced across a couple of conversations, one of them of interest; not sure what it was all about but it concerned random people walking along a (what i presume) a stretch of road ?? Most intriguing :rolleyes:
