First of all check the antenna connection, it could be dirty which causes more impedance at the higher frequencies than at the lower ones (uhf is higher than vhf), also hum could come from a power supply that can't produce enough current, does it get worse when you turn the volume up high? if so and you use a wall adapter, you might need one that has the same polarity and voltage but a higher current output, such as 400ma compared to 250 ma. If the power comes from a standard ac cord without the transformer (cube) at the wall outlet, then the internal supply might need a new capacitor in the filter circuit.

I NEED SCANNER CODES?


It depends on your location. Try this link http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db

You will also need to know if your state and city switched to digital.
If not then it should work fine, but if they did you will need a new scanner because you have an analog scanner. There is a big push to switch over to digital radios in police, firefighter, military because it's more secure to use.

I no longer provide support for any scanners. As a Police Dispatcher I was working when two police officers were ambushed and killed because a person listening to a scanner told the suspects the police were coming. They should be outlawed.

What is ment be reflashing a police scanner



  • When police, public safety, etc re-band then some scanners may not pick up the frequencies and you need to update the firmware (when available) to keep your scanners ability to monitor certain frequencies, pairs of frequencies, splinter channels etc.

  • Hope this helps.

Make sure you have selected the correct frequency range and radio band.

The bands are usually Police/Fire/Air Traffic/Marine/and Short Wave. Depending on your geographic location, you may or may not pick up transmissions.

Also try using the auto-scan feature to seacrh for chat, and adjust the squelch setting so you don''t choke out too much squawk chatter.

Motorola k7gt9500 police channel in manassas virginia?


Your Motorola radios operate in the FRS/GMRS band, which is at 462 MHz. Police, fire, EMS services, etc. operate in the 150 or 800 MHz bands. Your radios cannot receive public service transmissions, and they cannot be modified to do so. Monitoring public service transmissions will require a scanner.

Your community's public service radio frequencies may have been rebanded. Rebanding was the result of services throughout the nation being moved in the 800Mhz band.

Complete rebanding details of this can be found here:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Rebanding

The Pro-2096 scanner can be reprogrammed to receive your old services in the new band with software that is run on your computer and connected to the scanner. It is available for a small fee ($30). More information on this can be found below:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Win96

Many scanners are not capable of upgrading, and were reduced to "paper weights". Consider yourself lucky that a $30 upgrade will restore the full functionality of the radio. A great deal of information on your scanner can be found here:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Pro-2096

I hope this helps!
