Radio Shack scanners are not as sensitive as others, but the problem may be your location, especially if you're in a valley with mountains between you & the town that you're trying to receive, or if you have aluminum siding on your home, as metal blocks radio signals.
If either of these is the case, the best solution might be to erect a scanner antenna on your roof or the highest place possible (above metal siding) & connect its cable to your scanner.
