You may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise

Dont know how to program


To program a known frequency into the PRO-82:

1. Power the scanner ON
2. Press the PGM key
3. Enter a channel number between 1 and 200 (you might want to start with 01).
4. Enter the frequency, including decimal point (Ex: 146.26).
5. Press ENT
6. Press PGM to advance to the next channel
7. Restart at number 4 above.

I have pro 135 from radio shack. How do I reset it and keep the channels that are programed in it?


The RESET function will clear everything that you have programmed into the scanner and restore original factory settings. You can, however, restore the 150 pre-programmed frequencies after a RESET.

To RESET:
- Power the scanner OFF.
- Hold down the 2, 9, and PSE keys and power the scanner ON.
- CLEAr appears on the display as the scanner resets.
- Do not power the scanner OFF until CLEAr disappears from the display.

To restore the original 150 pre-programmed frequencies:
- Turn the scanner power OFF.
- Hold down the 3 and ENT/PGM keys and power the scanner ON.

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.
