It should have a squelch knob . Turn it all the way up and try your scan again. Also turn your volume up a little.

I have a radio shack pro 2096 that worked for years came home one day and no digital channels come thru anymore haven't touched a thing?!!


They have probably 'rebanded'- meaning that they moved the control channels. Go to radio reference dot com and see what the control channels are. IF they moved the 3 or 4 control channels and alternate control channels to the 700MHz range, then the PRO96 and PRO2096 probably cannot track it anymore and you will need a newer scanner from Uniden Bearcat or from Whistler. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.

Why wont my scanner model 60 channel pro-2029 scan


Hi Chad,

Do you have any frequencies programmed into your radio scanner?

If not, then that is why you're not receiving anything.

If on the other hand you do have frequencies programmed, are they the correct frequencies for your location?

Are the frequencies the Tx or Rx frequencies that you programmed, The Tx frequencies are the correct frequencies to program, as Rx is the mobile(usually) Tx frequencies, and unless you're within 5 miles of that mobile, you won't hear it, and you certainly won't hear the base transmissions, unless it's a high powered Simplex Frequency.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Cheers,
Peter

I have a pro-528triple trunking with 1000 channels.brand radioshack.serial no;74009508.fcc id07a07.can i fix my scanner to pick up scured channeles are modify it to pick up cell phone conversations i can...


Sorry, but the answers to your questions are no and no. Modern scanners are what they are, and they cannot be modified to monitor any secure (encrypted), digital, or cell phone communications. There is no magic fix to convert an analog scanner to digital. If you want to listen in to digital communications you'll need to purchase a digital-capable scanner, but that will still leave you without cell phone coverage or the ability to listen in to whatever secure transmissions you're referring to.

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.

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.

If you have any other questions, please contact us again.

Scanner prob


Happygirl, your probably not gonna be so happy now, but if the scanner took a lightning hit then some of the critical parts(ic chips) have been hit and it would cost more to get the scanner up and running than another good used one would cost. I just sold a nice 100 channel on e-bay for $49.00. This is just my opinion, as a lightning strike has a few hundred thousand volts running around in there. Hope this helps,, Mechanic

Are the transmissions you are trying to receive digital or analogue? The scanner will not receive digital transmissions.

I don't know about NZ, but in Australia, most emergency services are now on digital.

Are you able to receive any other frequencies, just to make sure the scanner is actually working?
