We have a police digital scanner havent been able to receive the police frequency wonder if they have been changed? i dont want to have to pay for this service just need new frequency numbers if they have...


Your community's public service radio frequencies may have been rebanded. Rebanding was the result of services throughout the nation being moved in the 800Mhz band.

Complete rebanding details of this can be found here:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Rebanding

The Pro-2096 scanner can be reprogrammed to receive your old services in the new band with software that is run on your computer and connected to the scanner. It is available for a small fee ($30). More information on this can be found below:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Win96

Many scanners are not capable of upgrading, and were reduced to "paper weights". Consider yourself lucky that a $30 upgrade will restore the full functionality of the radio. A great deal of information on your scanner can be found here:

I hope this helps!

Talkgroups and control channel problems?


No, you are not programming it wrong. The reason it is picking up all the active talkgroups is because the bank is "open". Hit manual like you are going to program a frequency in. Go to the particular bank in question and hit the function , 5. The display should say bank closed. This will "close" the bank and only allow the talkgroups you have programmed thru. To "open" the bank back up to recieve all frequencies do the same thing again. Function, 5. If you have any other questions email me at josephnshelby@aol.com and I will be glad to help.

Programming


No..you do not have to delete that programming. You can download the scanner using Win96 and then add or delete talkgroups and frequency data in Win96. Once this is complete, just upload it back to your scanner.

Word to the wise..you may want to save the results of your scanner download BEFORE modifying it. That way you can reload it if you make any mistakes while updating it.

Scanner not working


Did you use a software program or have radio shack program the scanner for you? If so, check to make sure the banks were selected in the software to be enabled. I assume the your scanner shows 0123****** Now to manually select banks, simply press the number for the selected bank to both select and de-select as warrented. When you press 4, bank 4 will now be scanned. Also, should you press 1, bank 1 will not be scanned.
