I have a radio shack pro 96 digital trucking scanner.the other day we finally put up my outside antenna for it.it worked fine all through xmas and new years.the other day turned it on and it would not pick up the channels in scan mode.i know there is nothing wrong with the scanner cause when i go to search mode and go to the cb channels and stull it picks up fine.if i go to the weather band it picks it up.i know my police and fire channels work cause when i go to manuel and go through the channels the channel they are using picks up.is it possible i could have hit a button for it not to pick up the channels in scan mode?please help

    the exterior antenna we just put up i had the hand held scanner since 2003.this is not the 1st time it has done this.i just hope i dont have to buy another one cause this one was very expensive

The very part of your scanner that makes it a scanner is inop. YOU can find it but IT won't scan. Back to radio shack for warranty before they change their mind.

    Do you know someone with a full functioning base scanner? Your text said you just put it up the other day, not that you had it for three years. Can you take this to a premium and mail me or live chat?

    We now boost the comment. You didn't say it was hand held. Silly me thinking outside antenna and a base station. Is this ALL the egggs for the basket or do we need to stripe em?

Hi my pro 96 scanner recieves nearby stations poorly


If you're talking about a digital trunked system with multiple towers or a simulcast system, then 'welcome to the club'. I have the same problem, but that only applies to digital trunked multisite P25 9600 baud systems. Everything else should be clear. What band are you trying to listen to: VHF Lo, VHF Hi, UHF, 800MHz, analog or digital? RS's more expensive antenna will give you better reception on VHF over the 'stock' rubber antenna that they give you. Let me know what you're trying to hear, and I can help more on this issue. Okay?

Radio Shack Pro Scanner


I know that if you turn your scanner off over a few days you can loose your frequency # or it will lock the channels out. if they or l/o just unlock then. I also know that all police and ect. went digital, you would to have a scanner that is digital. When they changed to digital some for the frequency # have changed. I had to get the new ones and put them in.
