Hi and welcome to FixYa,

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.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

NOAA weather broadcasts are continuous, therefore scanning is interrupted when your receiver locks on that frequency. You need to lock out all NOAA channels

How canifixmyscanner,it scansbut doesnt pick up program stations

You didn't provide the make or model of your scanner, or any real specifics on your problem, but your first step is to make sure that you've programmed active frequencies into it. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

For a functional check, you should first program and scan NOAA weather frequencies to verify whether or not the scanner is working properly. Many scanners have a WEATHER or WX band function that will let you check the NOAA broadcasts without any programming. If your scanner does not pick up the weather broadcasts you may have an antenna problem or an electronic problem that will require professional repair.

Scanner scans but will not pick up traffic

You didn't mention the scanner model, your location, or any specifics that could could help focus in on the problem, but here are some general guidelines for scanning:

1. Make sure that the scanner powers on from either AC power or batteries and that you have a proper antenna connected..
2. Check basic operation by turning the volume about halfway up and then rotating the SQUELCH control in both directions. You should hear a loud hissing noise. If you cannot hear anything while doing this the scanner is in need of professional repair.
3. Check scanner reception by programming a NOAA Weather frequency. 162.550MHz is the primary in most areas, but 162.400, 162.475, 162.425, 162.450, and 162.500 are other possibles). If you receive weather broadcasts on one of these frequencies, the scanner is working. If not, it probably needs professional repair.
4. If it passes the above tests, you need to make sure that you've programmed the right frequencies into the scanner. These will vary by location, and for a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

I hope that this information helps. If not, please get back to us with specifics and we will do our best to get the scanner working for you.

Need to unlock our radioshack pro 2018 200 channel desktop scanner

Easy to use right out of the box!
Explore preset frequencies used for non-trunked police/fire, aircraft, marine, NOAA weather and more. Just attach the antenna, switch it on and touch one of five buttons. With just two keystrokes, you can store a frequency you find in the 200-channel memory for later scanning or monitoring. You can also search for activity in frequency ranges you specify or program known "action" frequencies on the keyboard.

  • 1-touch search lets you find police/fire, HAM radio, marine and 7 NOAA WX frequencies fast
  • Built-in weather receiver sounds an alarm when your NOAA weather station sends an alert
  • 50-frequency search skip locks out undesired frequencies
  • Programmable by computer (requires Scanner PC Programming Kit #20-048)

162.550 NOAA weather frequency

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
