Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

My pro 2018 scanner wont pick anything up where i live could there be something wrong with the scanner or do i need a better antenna i live in holmes county ohio


First try picking up the NOAA Weather broadcasts. They're transmitted on seven frequencies (162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525, 162.550) and at least one should be active in your area. To check reception, just press the WX key on your scanner. If you can pick up one or more of the frequencies, you'll know that the scanner is functioning properly. If not, your scanner is likely in need of repairs - a questionable move due to its age.

If the scanner is functioning (receiving the weather band), try a quick RESET. use a paperclip or pen point to press the recessed RESET button on the back of the scanner.

Make sure that you have programmed local active frequencies into the scanner. For a comprehensive database, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

After all of the above, if you are receiving weather but no local transmissions, I recommend that you try an external antenna.

If you need the manual for your scanner, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Need an antennea that is for pro 508 scanner


The screw-in antenna for your scanner is Radio Shack Catalog number 10538353. You should be able to purchase one, or order one, from your local Radio Shack. Also check eBay - but make sure that it's the correct antenna for you scanner. Not all screw-in antennas have the same thread size. Check prices closely. Considering the age and limited capability of your scanner, you might be better off purchasing a new or used scanner rather than an antenna for the 508.

Need to find replacement padapter no. JoD-41U-02 for pro-2018. Can't locate one. Do you know where I can buy one.


The exact replacement power adapter for your scanner is out of production. Power requirement for the PRO-2018 is 12 volts with a minimum of 300 mA. Radio Shack has a universal power supply that will work, or you can pick one up on eBay for under $20, including shipment. You can also pick up a voltage-specific power adapter on eBay or elsewhere, but you may have to change the DC plug to match your scanner.

Does not receive


It is posible that you may get some very close signals to show up but even that is not 100%

Make sure you also have any noise blankers etc turned off as these will further reduce the signal.

Check out some of the radio ham and scanner sites like Strong Signals you should find cheap ways of making a home brew ant. for it.
