How to reset the bearcat bc200xlt
The Bearcat BC200XLT is a 200-channel portable scanner. You can program it for known frequencies, scan for active frequencies and store stations that interest you for future listening.
It monitors police, fire brigade and paramedic broadcasts, NOAA weather frequencies, business and industrial radio transmissions, and land transportation frequencies for trucking firms, buses, taxis, tow trucks and railroads. You can also use it to pick up marine and amateur ham radio bands. If you want to clear the memory of all stored channels, you can easily reset the scanner.
Rotate the Bearcat BC200XLT scanner's "On/Off-Volume" knob counterclockwise to turn it off.
Set the scanner on its back on a hard surface.
