Are you getting talkgroup ID's? If not, you're probably monitoring the EDACS system in conventional mode rather than trunking. When the scanner hears those beeps, it's supposed to go back to monitoring the control channel if you're in either trunking mode (search or scan). This also happens if the CC isn't coming in very well. If you're not in trunking mode, read the manual to find out more about programming and monitoring trunked systems. If you are in trunking mode and receiving ID's, the unit is probably malfunctioning.

How do i work a pro-94 radioshack police scanner?

Specs are not needed. I suspect you need the local frequencies and how to program them. The scanner CAN be set to scan for the local frequencies. Have a pad and paper ready and write down the ones you want to keep.
You must obtain the local frequencies, try Google. They are public knowledge, but hard to find. Local Hams or a Radio Shack will likely have the frequencies. Be nice, be polite, no one has to give you this information.

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


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 ??

Problem with PRO-2066 scanner not receiving local 800mhz Motorola trunk system II. It does trunk with the current data channels used (showing the ---- line) but I only hear transmissions on freqs ending...

It is difficult to explain in simple terms but I will try.
Google rebanding.
Some radios can have their firmware updated but I don't think your PRO 2066 can.
Channel numbers and frequencies preprogrammed into your scanner have changed over the past few years.
When a data signal says go to channel X that channel is now Y, but your scanner is still looking for X
Hope this helps

I have two uniden scanners (BCT 8) and both have stopped working. On checking we know all scanners in the Reno NV area have stopped working on the trunking system EDCAS - any suggestions as to what it may...

Your EDACS system may have switched on the ProVoice security system. If so, NO scanner will pick up their trunked transmissions. For more information/research on the EDACS system in your area, I suggest you visit

How do I program conventional frequencies into my Uniden BC898T? I have Motorola TypeII Digital Tunking frequencies programed into Bank A and EDAC Digital Trunking frequencies programed into Bank B

Just go to Bank C or anything after that and start entering -- one channel, one frequency. It's kind of cumbersome to do by pushing the keys, but it works. An alternative is to use the BuTel software. It will simplify programming and give you Virtual Control of the scanner through your computer.

If this helps, please give us a rating. A "very helpful" would be greatly appreciated.

When scanning the radio resumes before end of transmission

The manual states that the scanning will halt whenever the squelch is broken by a transmission, just as expected. When the transmission is complete, the radio continues scanning. This makes hearing any reply nearly imposible to monitor - and is the problem I believe you are describing.

Page 37 of the manual says that a 2 second delay can be assigned to a frequency whenever the radio has paused on a channel. Simply press the DELAY key on the scanner to assign the delay to the channel. If there is no additional transmission within 2 seconds, scanning will resume.

Below is a copy of the manual to reference or print if you can't find yours (you'll need a free program called "Adobe Reader" found at to view or print this manual).

I hope this helps!

Does my scanner trunk???

Your scanner does not do trunking. However, you should be able to monitor Dallas PD using it, since they are not using a trunked system. Richardson PD is using a EDACS system, which is trunked. You may still be able to pick up the frequencies used by Richardson, but the PD channels will be mixed in with all other users of the system.
