I own both of these and like the 106 more. It isn't just because it is new, but it has several options that make it more "user friendly" as well as better features. Some of the high points are:
-Easier manual channel navigation
-Larger, easier to read display
-Easier scan list understanding
-Much better user interface (text menus)
-Colored LED that you can assign to different channels..such as your priority channels. This way you can see what your receiving at a glance without having to actually look at the display,
-Remote control capability using the Win500 software.

A Pro-96 is a good scanner, but the Pro-106 blows it out of the water.

Won't trunk track. Searches frequencies, but will not scan talk groups.


This radio will only work on analog trunked systems, if it is a digital or P25 system, you need to upgrade to a digital scanner like the PRO96, or newer.

Need to do a master reset on pro 84 sanner but don't have manual


To RESET the PRO-84, turn the scanner OFF, then hold in the 2, 9 and HOLD keys and power the scanner ON. The word CLEAr will appear on the display to confirm the RESET.
While the manual for the PRO-84 has not been posted by Radio Shack, it is essentially a red PRO-83. You can download/print the 83 manual here:

I NEED HELP CHANGING MY GREETER WHEN I TURN MY SCANNER ON


Only a few units can do that, such as the PRO92, PRO96, etc, and you need to buy the software and software interface cable. There is a guy named "Don Starr" who has written some really good programs to do that.
