Trace back from the squelch control to the first and second transistors and you will find one of them is bad, or the components connected to them, one transistor acts as a switch when a voltage from the automatic gain control turns the transistor on via the gate terminal.

What does it mean when a channel is "locked out"?


That is a setting that is used for channels that are constantly broadcasting but you don't want to scan them because they will stop the scanner. An example is the noaa weather channel. You may want to have it on the scanner as a channel but you don't want to scan it because the scanner will stop on it all the time.

SCANNER PRO 97 WAS TRYING TO PROGRAM AND NOM WHEN I HIT SCAN IT SHOWS AII CHANNELS LOCKED OUT.


You may have a priority channel selected if it refuses to scan.i believe most scanners will reset if you remove batteries for a period.some cellular channels are blocked in the USA so if it's not a cellular frequency and you are not in a country with restrictions then you really need to understand how to input a frequency ....store it... Remember to adjust squelch as the squelch when turned fully on will not usually output any sound and lock scan if it's turned off in most cases.

Why wont my scanner model 60 channel pro-2029 scan


Hi Chad,

Do you have any frequencies programmed into your radio scanner?

If not, then that is why you're not receiving anything.

If on the other hand you do have frequencies programmed, are they the correct frequencies for your location?

Are the frequencies the Tx or Rx frequencies that you programmed, The Tx frequencies are the correct frequencies to program, as Rx is the mobile(usually) Tx frequencies, and unless you're within 5 miles of that mobile, you won't hear it, and you certainly won't hear the base transmissions, unless it's a high powered Simplex Frequency.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Cheers,
Peter

Last night was working fine - as it was on I noticed that the scanner was just stuck on one channel - I hit scan ( I have several channels programmed) It wouldnt scan. Then when I turned the squelch...


Hopefully Resetting or Initializing the scanner will clear the problem and get it working again for you. Instructions for these procedures are on page 38 and 39 of the scanner operating manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

I want to put frequencies channels into my bc140 but i don't have instruction manuel


I couldn't locate a manual for your oldie, but it's fairly simple to operate.

  1. Turn the scanner ON.
  2. Press "Manual" to stop scanning . Use the keyboard to choose the channel you want to enter your first frequency into. If you want channel 2, press the number 2 on the keyboard and then "Manual" again. If you want channel 12, press the 1 and then the 2 and then "Manual" again.
  3. Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point. For instance, if the frequency is 555.789, enter 5, 5, 5 and then the dot button, then 7, 8 and 9. Then press "Enter" to complete the setup.
  4. Use the "Manual" button to move to the next channel to enter the next frequency. Continue this process until you have all frequencies entered.
  5. Complete your entries and then press "Scan." Set the squelch by turning the "Squelch" knob all the way up and backing off until you hear no static.
  6. Lock out a channel that is annoying you by pressing the "Lockout" button. If you want to listen to the channel again, simply select "Manual," find the channel by entering it on the keypad and then hit "Lockout" again

I need to reprogram my Realistic Pro-2023 police scanner. I do not have my local police codes nor do I know how to reprogram it. Help.


PROGRAMMING YOUR SCANNER

For a a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com


1. Turn on your scanner by turning VOLUME clockwise.

2. Press [MANUAL], enter the channel number you want to program, then
press [MANUAL] and [PROGRAM]. The channel number flashes to indicate
you are programming the channel.

3. Enter a frequency.

4. Press [ENTER] to store the frequency. If you make a mistake in Step
3, ERROR appears on the display. Proceed again from Step 3.

5. If you want your scanner to pause after each transmission before
scanning to the next channel, press [DELAY] so that DELAY appears in
the display. See "Using the Delay Feature."

6. To program more channels, repeat Steps 2-4. If you want to program
the next channel in sequence, simply press [PROGRAM] and repeat Steps
3 - 4.

SETTING THE VOLUME AND SQUELCH CONTROLS

Use the SQUELCH control to decrease your scanner's sensitivity to weak
signals. This allows the scanner to receive only the strongest
transmissions.

1. Turn the SQUELCH and VOLUME controls fully counterclockwise.

2. Turn the VOLUME control clockwise until you hear a hissing sound.

3. Slowly turn the SQUELCH control clockwise until the hissing sound
stops.

SCANNING THE CHANNELS

To begin scanning the channels, press [SCAN]. Your scanner scans through
all the channels except the ones you have locked out. Be sure to read the
following sections to get the full benefit from your scanner's special
features.

USING THE DELAY FEATURE

Many agencies use a two-way radio system that might have a 2 second silence
(or more) between a query and a reply. To keep from missing a reply,
program a delay on the channels you identify as operating this way.

To program a delay, select the channel and press [DELAY] so that DELAY
appears on the display. Now when your scanner pauses at an active channel
when scanning, it waits for 2 seconds after the completion of each
transmission on that channel before it resumes scanning.

If you do not want your scanner to pause, select the channel and be sure
that DELAY is not on the display. If DELAY appears on the display, press
[DELAY] to turn it off for that channel.

LOCKING OUT CHANNELS

You can make your scanner scan more efficiently by locking out channels
that you have not programmed. Manually select the channel and press [LOCK
OUT] so that LOCK OUT apperas on the display. This is also handy for
locking out channels that have a continuous transmission. You can still
manually select locked-out channels for listening.

To unlock a channel you have locked, manually select the channel and press
[LOCK OUT] so that LOCK OUT disappears from the display.

NOTE: You cannot lock out Channel 1.

USING THE PRIORITY FEATURE

Channel 1 is designated as your scanner's priority channel. You can turn
on the priority feature so that you do not miss transmissions on Channel 1,
even if you are monitoring another channel.

Press [PRIORITY] so that PRIORITY appears on the display. Now your scanner
checks Channel 1 every 2 seconds, and stays on the channel if there is any
activity.

MANUALLY SELECTING A CHANNEL

You can continuously monitor a specific channel without scanning. This is
useful if you hear an emergency broadcast on a channel and do not want to
miss any details-even though there might be periods of silence-or if you
want to monitor a specific channel.

Follow these steps to manually select a channel.

1. Press MANUAL.

2. Enter the channel number.

3. Press MANUAL again.

Or, if your scanner is scanning and stops at the desired channel, press
MANUAL one time. (Pressing MANUAL additional times causes your scanner
to step through the channels.)

LISTENING TO THE WEATHER BAND

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has allocated several channels
for use by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). We
have preprogrammed your scanner with all of the frequencies available to
NOAA. To hear your local forecast and regional weather information, simply
press [WX]. Your scanner begins scanning through the weather band, and WX
SEARCH appears on the display.

Your scanner should stop within a few seconds, and you hear the local
weather broadcast. If the broadcast is weak, you can press [WX] again
to scan through the rest of the weather band.

I just aquired a Regency R 4010 portable scanner and am looking for the frequency range and programing instructions.


Turn scanner on.
Make sure Key Pad is set to ON.
Press the manual button until the Channel display shows the channel you want to program (i.e. 1 thr 10)
On the key pad enter the freqency and hit the E key when done.
Hit the Manual key to select the next Channel you want to program.
Repeat process.
When finished hit the scan button.
If you want to see what freqency is programmed for a channel hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the Review button.
If you want to lockout a channel (i.e. a channel that continuously broadcasts like the National Weather Service, hit the Manual button until you reach the desired channel then hit the L/O button. Hitting it again will unlock the channel.

Scanner wont scan


provided you turned the squelch know and it didnt help, i would trace back from the squelch control to the first and second transistor you come to and that should be the squelch circuit. if you know how to check them with an ohm meter you can find out which one it is, if not you can just replace them both for under 5 bucks.

Trouble programming


Part of this answer depends on whether your area is still running the standard broadcast radios or the "newer" trunk tracking style. The two are not compatible. If they are still standard, then press the E button to enter the program mode. Enter the desired freq. and hit the E button will enter the freq into memory. Tap manual to step to the next channel and repeat the steps to keep programming. Open the squelch to hear static then close just a little to quiet the noise and it should lock on and talk to you. Good luck with it,,and happy hunting. Mechanic
