Question about Radio Shack Pro-95 Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

Unit (Pro 95) will not scan trunk tracker stations at all. I have programmed this radio many times previously and it seems that the programming ROMs are misbehaving. The radio works fine in all modes except trunktracking EDACs.

Need instuctions on how to program hand held scanner


Detailed programming instructions are in the factory manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:
http://scancat.com/OnLineHelp/OEM_Radio_Owners_Manuals/RadioShack-OlderManuals/Pro-95/pro95.pdf

You may also want to visit www.RadioReference.com for a comprehensive database of frequencies and trunking systems in use in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information - including programming software that will let you load trunking systems without spending hours punching keys.

How do I program it for triple truncking?


There is no such thing as "dual trunking" or "triple trunking." Such terms are used by manufacturers to indicate the number of trunking systems that a scanner is capable of monitoring. The PRO-95 is designated as a Dual Trunk-Tracking scanner because it is capable of monitoring both Motorola and EDACS systems. Programming a trunking system in to a scanner is a detailed process that requires a bit of research.

For details on active trunking systems in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you have the system information you can follow the programming steps outlined in your scanner's operating instructions. If you don't already have the manual, you can download and print it here:

Unfortuantly the pro-82 is not a trunked scanner, it's only a vhf/uhf scanner and cannot pickup trunked systems. You need to replace it with atleast a pro-95 to pick up trunked systems. If you need your manual for the pro-82 follow this link.

The scanner doesn't want to scan?


When you first turn on the pro 95 and the dual trunking screen is still on insert (gently) a pin or straightend paper clip in the small hole just above and to the right of the external power plug. That will reset the radio. Once it is reset (wait until it finishes resetting) you may need to initialize it. Turn it off then back on, while it is still displaying the dual trunking screen press "0" and then the "1". Do not turn the radio off until the Initializing is finished.
Now re program your radio if you with to use the "SCAN" button. Other wise you should be able to use the "search" button to select the service you wish to listen to.
Hope this helps.

Hello majorhart, I have never owned this model scanner, but by looking at the owners manual I see there is a keylock, which locks the keypad.
If you need a copy of the manual, go here and download.

Are you pressing the "SCAN" button?
Try pressing the "search" button on the bottom left of the key board. If you want to use the "SCAN" button you need to program frequencies into the banks.

When you first turn on the pro 95 and the dual trunking screen is still on insert (gently) a pin or straightend paper clip in the small hole just above and to the right of the external power plug. That will reset the radio. Once it is reset (wait until it finishes resetting) you may need to initialize it.

This may be a little overkill but it doesn't hurt.
Hope this helps.
