Re: No recieving

I had the same problem and no it is not because of heat. In most cases when you turn a scanner off it has data stored in its RAM and ROM memory banks, this data is cleared out of the scanner if you do not have a memory backup battery. The problem with your scanner is the RAM data might be corrupted, reprogram your radio using only the priority banks and never turn your scanner off unless you have a backup battery, if you do, you'll have to keep reprogramming it. Instead of turning it off, just turn it down.

Weather frequencies are factory programmed into the PRO-2018. Just press the weather button to start scanning them. You can also program one or more manually if you wish. For a list of NOAA weather broadcast frequencies, follow this link:

Does not receive

It is posible that you may get some very close signals to show up but even that is not 100%

Make sure you also have any noise blankers etc turned off as these will further reduce the signal.

Check out some of the radio ham and scanner sites like Strong Signals you should find cheap ways of making a home brew ant. for it.

Will not stay on 11 meter turn it off comes back on 10&12 meter will not transmit am or ssb recieve ok. rci 2995dx.

Hello janetsue, If this radio has the blue or green screen LCD face then this is a default that is built into the radio. It depends on how the radio was "converted" when it was bought new.
It will not key up on 10 or 12 because of the default. A little more info supplied would be real helpful,,,, Let me know, Mechanic

Pro-97 scanner recieving problem

try going to a urban area and scanning the NOAA band. if that works your programming is wrong and there is nothing wrong with your AM/FM base band. also the BNC antenna connector on the inside is notorious for breaking away from the board, nothing a little solder cant handle. Also make sure your local freq's are not Digital
