Question about Radio Shack Pro-96 Scanner

1 Answer

My Pro 96 does not come out of Squelch mode on any channels

I just got it back from radio shack repair shop. Is there a solution or is this a send by to shop problem. I tried the reset on the side but radio still won't squelch out stays silent most of the time. Once in a great while a channel would open then go silent for along time.

Are you hearing any communications at all? Sounds to me like someone has programmed the ctcss tones for each frequency. Try programming a frequency without a tone and you should get a squelch. If not then you probably have to return to the repair shop. GOOD LUCK.

I can't turn off the squelch on my Radio Shack Digital Trunking scanner.


On all channels, or on one channel ? Some channels are "birdie" channels, check your user manual. Others are problem channels receiving false signals from computers, monitors, receivers, internet equipment, FAX machines, etc. If your in conventional mode, if in Digital mode the squelch is set by the processor, and I don't believe the squelch has any effect in that mode.

Just about any electronics/radio shop can repair your scanner, but for the best job with factory trained technicians, factory parts, and a repair warranty, you can take the unit to any Radio Shack and they will either have the job done locally or send it in for factory repair.

I have the pro 96 for about 2 years and I can hear the squelch sound but its not picking up chatter.


Try turning the squelch to minimum, press Scan, or you may have to program it. To program, Press PGM, select the channel you want, press PGM, use the number key and ./DELAY to enter the frequency including the decimal point you want to store, if you make a mistake press CLR, press the ENTER button to store it. You can get your frequency's for your state at www.RadioReference.com ...hope this was helpful..

Need to reprogram hand held pro 96


Radio Shack can "CLone" your scanner with one in the store - try that first to see if it will work and let me know.

Scanner will not move from the programmed Police channel


you may need to play with the squelch. and/also hold down the light/key button until the key goes away but mess with the squelch after you get rid of the lock. you want the squelch as far left without it stopping and making static noise

on scan mode press (man) for manual then pgm then trunk. screen should read not trunked press mode. if it does say that then press scan, and it should work. but if it doesn't say not trunked then press mode until it does say not trunked, then press scan. should work.

Squelch is open all the time


Often the potentometer (squelch control) becomes worn or dirty, this can be sometimes cured by spraying a WD40 or similar oil and then rapidly moving the control down and up. Do not use oil that is conductive.
