Hello all, I have a Pro-94 1000 channel scanner and it will not receive any freqs, no NOAA stations either. I have tried a new antenna, but had no luck with that. The local police freqs will come in but not clear enough to listen to. Any ideas anyone? Help Please

Re: Pro-94 will not recieve
Make sure the frequencies are put in correct. Another thing to remember is that scanners receive from repeaters the police, FD, etc use. Make sure you are in range. Sometimes an external antenna is necessary if this is the case. Another thing to note is that many police districts are switching to a digital system that some analog trunking scanners will not be able to receive. If someone wants updated frequencies in the area I can provide them (USA only sorry).

Are you sure that the frequencies you programmed are active in your area? Try a weather band search (press Func and Svc) to verify that the scanner is working properly. If you receive one or more NOAA weather broadcast channels then you need to visit www.RadioReference.com and check their database for active freqs in your area. If you cannot receive weather then you have an antenna or receiver problem.
The NOAA weather frequencies have constant broadcasts, so your scanner "locks" onto them. The only ways to prevent this are to either delete the weather frequency or lock it out. To delete, just program the frequency "0.0" (zero point zero) into the channel. To lock it out, press the L/O key while on the weather freq.
Do you still receive NOAA weather frequencies? Sounds like your local agencies have switched from simplex/standard frequency operation to trunking. I suggest you visit www.RadioReference.com to view the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area.
be foe you can recieve them in a closed mode you must input their talkgroup id if not you will not recieve anythang also remember to set your mode to Mot for motorola, fm is foe conventional, am is for aircraft...ect. in the oppen mode you will pick up everthing and their neighbor that uses the frequency set. hope this helps
I am not aware of any computer receiver ported for USB connection capable of 162.550 MHz; almost all are regular FM band. There are however amateur/ham radio equipment that could be interfaced with the PC that covers 136 to 174 Mhz.
If your requirement is to be able to monitor NOAA weather broadcasts, it might be simpler to use Internet Radio/audio streaming. NOAA addresses this particular issue here and here among others.
According to the manual the Pro 94 should cover that frequency.
Please note, certain frequencies are blocked in some countries. I see no reason why 217.031 should fall into this category although the closest may be 217.030 which should be close enough
Take a look at the manual >HERE< which should help you to program your scanner.
try going to a urban area and scanning the NOAA band. if that works your programming is wrong and there is nothing wrong with your AM/FM base band. also the BNC antenna connector on the inside is notorious for breaking away from the board, nothing a little solder cant handle. Also make sure your local freq's are not Digital
If your still having the problem, it could be that the transmitter for that freq lost some of it's power, so your scanner cannot pick up a clear signal. If everything else is working ok, that's my guess. Hope this helps,,, Mechanic
press the manual button a few times, and make sure there are actually some freq. programmed into the unit.
if there are freq other than 000.000000 in there, press the s/s (lockout) button and see if this unlocks the frequencies to allow them to be scanned.
mORE AND MORE POLICE AGENCIES ARE SWITCHING TO "DIGITAL TRUNKING". I CAN ONLY PICK UP PARTS OF MY LOCAL SHERIFFS STATIONS. RADIO SHACK HAS THE NEW dIGITAL TRUNKING SYSTEMS THEY COST ABOUT $500. I AM UP GRADING NOW.
FOR TRUNKING ... WHEN YOU GET A ACTIVE CHANNELL KEEP HITTING THE RED TRUNK BUTTON TILL YOU SEE THE MOTOREOLA 5 NUMBEWR ID.THJEN HIT ENTER.
I WANT THE NEW PROGRAMER THAT IS FAST ENOUGH TO FOLLOW DIGITAL HYPER-TRUNKING. ALL POLISE ARE GOING TO IT EVENTUALLY.
