I recently bought the same scanner at radio shack, I was wearing my emt clothes at the time and this may be the reason why he programmed it for free, with their software,I don't know.
But ask radio shack to program it for you for free, ( just tell them you can have it back if they don't..) But he programmed everything in my area for me and it did take a few hours to do this also.
Hope this helps out.

How can i get my pro 164 to pick up digital broadcast frequencies


Sorry, but your PRO-164 is an analog-only scanner. There's nothing you can do to or with it to receive and listen to digital transmissions. If digital systems are in use in your area you'll need a digital (APCO-25) equipped scanner to listen in to them.

How to program a radio shack pro 163 police scanner


The 163 is a trunking scanner, so programming instructions are long and detailed, and they vary for each type of trunking system. Programming instructions are best explained in the factory operating manual. If you don't already have it, you can download/print the manual here:

http://www.scancat.com/OnLineHelp/OEM_Radio_Owners_Manuals/PRO-163-164-OWNERS%20MANUAL_2000164_PM_EN.pdf

You may also want to join a users group for the 163. Check Yahoo or just Google PRO-163.

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

www.RadioReference.com

The site also has information that explains the workings of trunking systems, links to users groups, and a lot of other useful scanning information.

I have programmed my pro164 scanner using win97 software and the pc patch cable. i have frequencies programmed to channels onto bank 0. i also programmed the desired talkgroups onto bank 0. problem is when...


you will have to buy the Radio Shack USB cable 20-047 and install
the driver for it and then I downloaded a program named
"Win97" from the www.starrsoft.com website as listed
on page 21 of the Pro-164 manual. The cable costs
$34.99 and with tax you are looking at about $37.88.

The "Win97" software must be registered for it to work
after a 30-day free trial period. That's approx $25.00.

This is the ONLY WAY to go !! You put in everything
on the software GUI and then upload it to the PRO-164.
Works like a champ .
but if you have tried doing this.i advise do it again.again run the program by connecting the cable again.if you have not tried it then do it again. if still the same problem.then it might be the problem with the scanner.get it rechecked from radio shack. there are many many users facing this same problem this particular model of radioshack scanner and other model in which this same problem occurs is pro-197. get it checked with radio shack.tech. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

How do i unlock a radio shack 164 hand held scanner and how do you program the scanner


The PRO-164 is a trunking scanner with many programming options, and attempting to detail the full programming procedure here wouldn't be practical. Rather, follow this link and you can download/print the full operating manual for your scanner.

Programming my pro 164


There isn't a universal guide for programming but if you take it to a local Radio Shack, they can give you all the frequencies of your local emergency radios. They can also show you how to program, store and prioritize your scanner.
