Question about Radio Shack Pro-97 Handheld Scanner
All the channels on my scanner read locked out. When you look at it it looks like 1 + and looks like this for all of them. I have done everything I can find in the manual to no luck.. HELP!
Mrs. Santa brought me a new PRO-97 yesterday. I'm new to this - just wanted an aircraft frequency scanner, but got the whole shameal. I had a bad AC adapter and attempted to fix the power problem as directed in the manual by re-initializing the scanner. That blew all memory away.
I received the feared All Channels Locked Out message and through a little research and fiddling, realized the scanner was pre-programmed. An Addendum came with the scanner with instructions to reload the 155 pre-programmed frequencies:
1) Turn off the scanner and then turn it on again.
2) When 'Multi-system Trunking Scanner' appears, press PGM.
3) Press 1.
This will reload the pre-programmed frequencies erased by the re-init. Press scan and it'll be as new as outta the box!

Press the scan button then press the numbers 12345 and 6, see if this changes the numbers at the top (showing which banks you want to scan through) if this doesnt seem to change, press the manual button multiple times and see what kind of channels you hvae programmed in. if they're all 000.000000 or such, or all have l/o at the bottom, i believe it's the S/S button (says lockout over it) press this after choosing a manual channel that you want to be able to scan through. see if this changes anything
