Question about Radio Shack Pro-95 Handheld Scanner

Motorola Trunking not working

My PRO-95 was working fine until recently it stopped receiving anything on the trunking network. I tried reprogramming, checking locked out channels, etc. then eventually had to initialize the scanner. It still isn't receiving anything on the Motorola trunking. VHF is working fine. I am getting AM and FM transmissions crossing over on the 800 MHZ frequencies that I am using. The scanner wasn't damaged, but has been left in a hot vehicle at times. Any suggestions? Thank you.

    Same problem. Works fine on everything but Motorola II Trunking frequencies. Does Radio Shack repair these for a reasonable cost? Thanks

    I have two other Pro 95 and I use the cloning software. The other two work fine, the third one does not.

    My Pro-95 just stopped trunking on the Motorola 2 frequencies. Re set up everything still no luck. Initialized scanner still not working. set up again and tried the reset option and that cleared the scanners memory, which it should not do according to the manual. Scanner works fine on all other frequencies inputted.

If you are getting "cross over" on freqs, then you need to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. You have some bad parts inside and only with the proper electronic gear can you locate them. Plus it will need to be retuned.

Motorola not receving voice MTX9250


The MTX9250 is usually used as a trunking radio. It is likely programmed to work with a system of towers and will not work radio-to-radio without being reprogrammed. Stop by your local Motorola dealer and inquire about FCC licensing and reprogramming the radios to a simplex (radio-to-radio) frequency. Or if the dealer is the manager of the trunking tower system this radio was originally used with, they may be able to offer you service on their system.

Best regards.

Cannot recieve new Motorla trunking Feq after system upgrade on my Pro 95 scanner. What can I do?? Thanks, Ron


Hi.

They probably went into a digital trunking system. Your Pro-95 will only handle Edacs, Type I and II standard trunking.

Or they changed the trunking voice frequencies and the data (control channel) frequency.

Which system are you trying to listen to? Which city area ??

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...


If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

Is this triple trunking?


The PRO-94 is a Dual-Trunking scanner, meaning that it will receive both Motorola and GE/Ericsson EDACS systems.

Need the manual for the PRO-94? You can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Scanner locks on tower frequency


If you are using a trunking system, then it sounds like you just have it set for "FM" mode, instead of "MO" Motorola trunking. You will have to use your owners manual to see how to set up a trunking system by putting the control channel (tower) frequencies in a special mode, then it will work if it is a PRO 96, PRO 106, etc.

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:

MTS non trunking made into a trunking system


Trunking radios are controlled by logging on to a central control - for use unless you have a trunking network with repeaters set up (costs a lot of money) stick to the non trunking versions - they can be reprogrammed to your frequencies and are very useable. without connection to a trunking network the Trunk versions would be better used as a door stop as they are very limited for re-use

I have had my pro-95 for 8 years with no problems...now the trunking will not work...please advise


Your scanner may have had a logic "hiccup" for any one of many reasons, and a simple RESET may restore the trunking function.

RESET (will not wipe out frequencies or other programmed data):

- Turn the scanner OFF, and then then ON again.

- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, pen point, etc.) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, then gently press and release the RESET button inside the opening.

If the RESET doesn't solve the problem, you may need to INITIALIZ the scanner.

INITIALIZE (this action WILL delete all programmed data)
Welcome To Dual Trunking appears.

- Press 0 then 1 while Welcome to Dual Trunking is displayed. Initializing Please Wait appears for about 2 seconds.

Do not turn off the scanner until the initializing process is complete. When complete M000 will appear on the top line of the display, and Bank 0 Ch 0 will appear on the bottom line.

Hopefully one of these steps will restore the trunking. If not, the scanner may need professional help.

Not picking up any sound


When you first turn on the pro 95 and the dual trunking screen is still on insert (gently) a pin or straightened 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.
