I programmed my scanner a few days ago and have been on vacation. I turned it on today and all the banks are empty with no frequencies that I previously entered. I keep it plugged in when it is turned off. This continues to be a reoccuring problem. Do you have any suggestions?

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
Just go to Bank C or anything after that and start entering -- one channel, one frequency. It's kind of cumbersome to do by pushing the keys, but it works. An alternative is to use the BuTel software. It will simplify programming and give you Virtual Control of the scanner through your computer.
If this helps, please give us a rating. A "very helpful" would be greatly appreciated.
I will try my best to help you. Go to manual and push till you go to the number you wish to use, If the numbers on it or all 00000000 you can put what frequency # on it. as long as it is all 0000000 you don't have a thing on that # to interfere with. When you get the # you wish to use put the number in, if your # has a . in it you will need to put the. in hit enter then prg. email@example.com
Did you use a software program or have radio shack program the scanner for you? If so, check to make sure the banks were selected in the software to be enabled. I assume the your scanner shows 0123****** Now to manually select banks, simply press the number for the selected bank to both select and de-select as warrented. When you press 4, bank 4 will now be scanned. Also, should you press 1, bank 1 will not be scanned.
