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.

Want to no how to program scanner to pick up phone calls. radioshack-pro/95 dual-trunking.


Sorry, but it can't be done, for at least two reasons. Cellular bands are out of the tuning range of your scanner, and it cannot be modified to receive the cellular frequencies. Virtually all cellular signals are now digital, and the PRO-95 is an analog-only scanner.

Reprograming the pro 95 to get the 850.000 band


The linked article below indicates that the PRO-95 and other non-digital Radio Shack scanners are not capable of rebanding to provide coverage of the revised Motorola systems. For more information you should contact your local Radio Shack store.

Have a Radio Shack pro82 and cannot pick up police freq.


You can get your local radio frequencies by doing a search (google.com) type in the city name, county name and state, then type in "radio frequencies". You should be able to find the list for your area..

Pro-2096 won't pick up local police


if you live out far from town you may live to far to pick it up. I have this problem because i live out of city. I can go to my mothers and she lives in town and she picks them up fine. I also know that a few months ago all frequencys went digital and some of my # had to be changed.

My 95 is way off - Freqs,Mode not working...Grrr!


mORE AND MORE POLICE AGENCIES ARE SWITCHING TO "DIGITAL TRUNKING". I CAN ONLY PICK UP PARTS OF MY LOCAL SHERIFFS STATIONS. RADIO SHACK HAS THE NEW dIGITAL TRUNKING SYSTEMS THEY COST ABOUT $500. I AM UP GRADING NOW. FOR TRUNKING ... WHEN YOU GET A ACTIVE CHANNELL KEEP HITTING THE RED TRUNK BUTTON TILL YOU SEE THE MOTOREOLA 5 NUMBEWR ID.THJEN HIT ENTER. I WANT THE NEW PROGRAMER THAT IS FAST ENOUGH TO FOLLOW DIGITAL HYPER-TRUNKING. ALL POLISE ARE GOING TO IT EVENTUALLY.
