Let us point you in the "right" direction to get the information you need to program your scanner, or let us program the radio for you.
One large electronics retailer used to program scanners for
"free" in the stores, but not any longer.

Special Note: Even the new HomePatrol scanners need programming for your area.
If you recently purchased one of the new HomePatrol Scanners - HP-1, HP-2, BCD536HP and BCD436HP may want you to believe that programming frequencies by zip code would get you to the frequencies you want to hear. The only problem is that by using zip code, you may get thousands of frequencies, most of which, you are not interested in hearing. You can get frequencies so far outside your area that the scanner could not pick them up in any case, but it needs to take the time to scan through all those channels. That means that the scan speed is slowed down and you may miss the action ofwhat is happening just around the corner while listening to a dog catcher 50 miles away. We can solve this problem by programming in just the frequencies for your county. That way you will still have the master frequency list, but you can also limit the amount of frequencies the scanner has to go through, simply by going to the favorites list we make for your county.
What do you need to send?
