SOURCE: NO SQUELCH

I have a Radio Shack Pro 97 Scanner that I received as a present 1-1/2 years ago. It was working just fine and then suddenly there was no squelch or volume. The keys make noise when pushed, but there is no sound for the squelch or volume. The scanner scans the frequencies but does not stop and play. I went on line and found that other people were having the same problems. I went back to the store that the unit was purchased from and received no help what so ever, they said it’ s off warranty and I was out of luck, nice way to do business??. I think that something that cost as much as this should not be junk after a short period of time. I hope you can help me with this problem I do like radio shack, but I can’t afford to buy items that don’t stand up.

Sincerely

SOURCE: Pro-164 scanner stops receiving when Motorola talk-ids are progra

I had to buy the Radio Shack USB cable 20-047 and install
the driver for it and then I downloaded a program named
"Win97" from the www.starrsoft.com website as listed
on page 21 of the Pro-164 manual. The cable costs
$34.99 and with tax you are looking at about $37.88.

The "Win97" software must be registered for it to work
after a 30-day free trial period. That's approx $25.00.

This is the ONLY WAY to go !! You put in everything
on the software GUI and then upload it to the PRO-164.
Works like a champ !!!!!!

SOURCE: Scanner not receiving

Performing a RESET will not clear/erase frequencies or other data programmed into the scanner. If the RESET doesn't work though, you may need to INITIALIZE the scanner. That procedure will clear all programmed data and return the scanner to its "as new" state. Need the manual for your PRO-82? You canb download/print it here:

SOURCE: My pro-82 scanner scans threw all channels but

To verify that the scanner is working properly, program one or more of the weather frequencies(162.4, 162.425, 162.45, 162,475, 162.5, 162.525, 162.55, 161.65, 161.775, 163.275) into memory and then scan. NOTE: Not all frequencies are in use in all areas, so you may need to try several. If you receive the weather broadcasts, then you may need to adjust the squelch setting on your scanner to receive local signals. You also need to verify that the frequencies programmed into the scanner are valid, active frequencies in your area. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

If the scanner fails to receive the weather broadcasts, you need to check the antenna connections inside the unit and/or have the scanner checked/repaired by a qualified technician.

How to reset my Uniden BC75XLT Bearcat Scanner .


Resetting the Scanner
If the scanner's display locks up or stops operating properly,
you might need to reset the scanner.
CAUTION: This procedure clears all the information
you have stored in the scanner. Before you reset
the scanner, try turning it off and back on to see if
it begins working properly. Reset the scanner only
when you are sure it is not working properly.
1. Turn off the scanner.
2. While holding down 2, 9, and Hold, turn on the scanner.
It takes about 3 seconds to initialize and CLEAr appears.

I had the same problem. Make sure the program is running and the scanner is turned on, go into "Tools", "COM Port Setting...", and click on "Auto Detect." That should work every time.

Bc75xlt scannerfrequencies


Hi, Michael,
Your best bet is the ACMA website, depending on where you live, i.e: state/postcode, you need this info plus frequency range that you're interested in before looking up their register of communications licenses.

A cheap way of getting a basic knowledge of Australia wide frequencies is to go to ebay and bid for a copy of Scanner Fanatics frequency register, these are the same books that sold in DSE years ago. They are up-to-date as far as I know, but they are a good way to get started in scanning.
Regards
Peter

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.

If you have any other questions, please contact us again.
