The greeting can be changed using the USB programming cable and a software package such as Win97 from StarrSoft. (www.starrsoft.com) This is not freeware, but they do allow a 30 day fully functional trial. The greeting cannot be changed from the keyboard.

If the scanner's display locks up or does not work properly
after you connect a power source or install batteries, you
might need to initialize it.
This procedure clears all information you stored in the
scanner's memory. Initialize the scanner only when you
are sure the scanner is not working properly.
1. Turn off the scanner, then turn it on again. Multi-system
Trunking Scanner appears.
2. Press 0 while Multi-system Trunking Scanner appears.
3. Press 1.

I have a pro 97 hand held cant get it out of clone mode


Your scanner is designed to automatically enter CLONE mode when a cloning cable is attached, and to exit CLONE mode when the cable is disconnected. If you do not currently have a cable connected, you will need to INITIALIZE your scanner to return it to normal operation. NOTE: Initializing the scanner will erase/delete all programmed data and return the scanner to its original factory settings. Before starting this procedure, be sure that you have a record of all programming information so that you can reprogram your scanner.

To INITIALIZE the PRO-97:

1. Turn the scanner OFF.
2. Turn the scanner ON. "Multi-system Trunking Scanner" appears.
3. Press the 0 (zero) key while "Multi-system Trunking Scanner" appears.
4. Press the 1 (one) key.
5. Press the ENT key. "Initializing please stand by" appears on the display for about five seconds.

Do not turn the scanner OFF until the initialization process is complete. When it is complete "M000" will appear on the top line of the display, and "Bank 0 Ch 00" will appear on the third line of the display.

Once the process is complete you can begin to reprogram the scanner.

I have a a hand held radio shack triple trunking pro-164.someone thought they knew how to program it , and know it is worse than before. is there a way to clear it out and start fresh?


Radio Shack calls it "Initializing," but to totally reset the scanner to factory settings,

1. Turn off the scanner, then turn it on again.
“Multi-system Trunking Scanner”
appears.
2. While “Multi-system Trunking
Scanner” appears, press 0.
3. Press 1.
4. Press ENT. “Initializing please
stand by” appears for about 5 seconds.
When the initialization is complete, M000
appears on the second line of the display.
“Bank 0 Ch 00” appears.
Note: Do not turn off the scanner until
the initialization is complete.
