I used to get Mine from Google. General Search for Scanner Codes. Some Storm Chasing sites give them out. I personally gave up on My Scanner when the Oklahoma Police Departments Changed ALL Frquencies to Private and I cannot get ANY of them, Could you be Having the Same Prob?

Where do i get a list of channels,codes or freguencies from so i can reprogram my scanner


There are several websites and books you can buy. I would try 'radio reference DOT com' for your state. Realize that your scanner CANNOT do DIGITAL, so if there is a digital system in your city/county/parish, your radio will not work. It will however still work on weather, Skywarn, ham radio frequencies and some more rurual police, fire and businesses.

How do u unlock a pro82 scanner reciever? Is there an universal lock code?


The PRO-82, circa 1999, was designed and equipped with what might be called tamper-proof circuitry. Unlike many scanners from the 80's, there is no way to "unlock" this scanner or otherwise add frequency coverage that is not factory enabled. If you want wider coverage you'll need to purchase a different scanner.

Need the factory manual for the PRO-82? You can download and print it, at no cost, here:

I'm not picking up any local police channels can I program some in? and where can I find the codes for Philadelphia?


Your PRO-82 is fairly simple to program, and you can find detailed instructions in the factory manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:

For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

FYI, though, many areas have upgraded to trunking systems for their law enforcement communications. If this is the case in your community, you will need to purchase a trunking scanner to listen in.

My Radioshack Pro-82 Scanner is stuck. I turned it on, held down the "lock" button until the keypad locked. The screen didn't display the "locked" symbol, but I can't use the keypad either. Even if I try...


First reset the scanner. This will not remove frequencies from memory. Turn the scanner off and then on again. Use a straightened our paper clip to gently push the "Reset" button on the side of the case (small hole). If that doesn't work, the next thing to do is to reinitilize the radio. This blows everything away so its the last resort. If you have the cable adapter and CD ROM for the radio, you may still be able to back up the scanner and reload after you do this. If not, be prepared to reprogram.

Turn the radio off and back on again. Hold down the "Tune/Clear button and again push the reset button. The display should clear. When the display returns, release the "Tune/Clear button

Now reprogram.

I cleared my pro-82 scanner. Program button is not working to let me reprogram. Help.


As long as all frequencies have been cleared, try initializing the scanner. This will return everything to the original factory settings.

To INITIALIZE:
- Turn the scanner OFF, then switch it back ON.
- Hold down the TUNE/CLEAR button.
- While continuing to hold the TUNE/CLEAR button down, insert a pointed object such as a paperclip or the tip of a pen into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, and press the RESET button inside the opening. The display should go blank.
- When the display comes back on, press the TUNE/CLEAR button again. The scanner should now be ready to accept programming.

Have a pro 97 scanner and try couple of computes to program it


You need police scanner programming software and a cable before your computer will talk to your scanner.
Do a google or yahoo search for police scanner software. About $25 and a cable from radioshack for about the same. The disk that comes with the cable will only let your computer recognize the cable not program the scanner.
Good luck. Waste of money in my opinion but it may be easier then manual programming the radio.

HOPKINSVILLE KY. POLICE DEPT. CHANGED TO A


Unfortuantly the pro-82 is not a trunked scanner, it's only a vhf/uhf scanner and cannot pickup trunked systems. You need to replace it with atleast a pro-95 to pick up trunked systems. If you need your manual for the pro-82 follow this link.
