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.

GRECOM PSR-200 DESKTOP SCANNING RECEIVER WHEN SCANNING WEATHER CHANEL KEEPS COMING IN.


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

Do I need to upgrade my Uniden Bear-Car BC 60XLT-1 30 channel programmalbe handheld scanner from analog to digital? We cannot listen to the NASCAR radios any more? We were told we needed to go digital?


NASCAR radios are not digital & besides, your scanner can't be upgraded. Try programming your local NOAA weather frequency. If you can't hear it, your scanner is not functioning properly & it's doubtful that it would be worth the cost of repairing it.

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:
www.RadioReference.com

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.

Can't seem to get any activity even after programming some frequencies in to it(BC72XLT)


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.

I need to program a weather scanner for a pro 2018 weather scanner from rdio shack


Weather frequencies are factory programmed into the PRO-2018. Just press the weather button to start scanning them. You can also program one or more manually if you wish. For a list of NOAA weather broadcast frequencies, follow this link:

MY RADIOSHACK NASCAR PRO-84 SCANS THREW CHANNELS BUT STAYS STUCK ON ONE CERTAIN WEATHER CHANNEL AND WONT CONTINUE SCANNING AND I NEED TO NO HOW TO DELETE THAT CHANNEL COMPLETELY.


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.

I have a bc350c 800 mhz and cant get nothing but static how to i get the police channels to work


Try tuning known frequencies, such as the NOAA weather channels, to verify the working condition of your scanner. If it picks them up, you don't have your local police system/frequencies programmed properly. If there's no reception, even on NOAA, you have an antenna or receiver problem that may need professional attention.

In case you need it, you can download/print the manual for your scanner here:

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: www.RadioReference.com

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.

Cant get weather on hand held scanner


The 92 does not have a separate/dedicated weather band feature, but you can program individual NOAA frequencies into it. Weather broadcast frequencies are: 162.400 MHz : 162.425 MHz : 162.450 MHz : 162.475 MHz : 162.500 MHz : 162.525 MHz : 162.550 MHz.

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
