Radio Shack Pro-82 Scanner

Ive had this scanner for a while and it barely does anything. It only scans one channel. And I know there is more going on out there than what i get. I dont know how to program it and Radio Shack doesnt seem to know either. Hopefully you can help.

When on the scanning part push the scan part again and push the prog buton that is under the lower arrow key and push it again so it will go to a different (blank channel) . you will know when it you are able to prog when the word prog will be on the bottom of the screen then go to cityfreq.com to find the codes for your area and put them in and then press enter. after you do that press the prog button again and it will move to the next number to program a different on when you get the desired amount of frequencies in your scanner just push scan and it will run through the entered codes.. Or if thats not the problem then on top should be a bank of numbers and andd you have to push the number of what bank you want it to run through at that time.

Whenever i turn on my pro-82 scanner all i get is static and have tried squelch and reset


Check your antenna connections, if the connections are good then try a different antenna. Most likely that is the problem if it's the scanner. If your trying to scan Public Safety Frequencies you may be running into a situation where they have gone Digital and your scanner is Analog or they may have encrypted their frequency or control channels so the scanners won't work.

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.

How do i set the scanner to only scan dedicated channels


Here http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/doc69/69887.pdf is the manual to your scanner.

It appears that all you should have to do is press the SCAN button and it will start scanning your programed frequencies.

I reset my pro 82 scanner now i need to program my scanning codes


Your reset wiped out all programmed frequencies, leaving "000.0000" in each channel. That automatically sets the LOCKOUT icon, but it will clear when you program a frequency into the channel. You can download and print your scanner manual here:

Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel


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

I have a radio shack weather alert pro 82


Tilt the scanner in a different direction while looking at the display. Do you see anything on the display when you look at it from a different angle? Sometimes manufacturers don't put the LCD display in correctly, and because LCD's have a really small viewing angle it can result in not seeing what is displayed.
