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 ??

Can you listen to a police frequency if it's trunked with this scanner? Uniden BC72xlt


You can listen to trunked police bands UNLESS: 1 they went Digital and your scanner is Analog. 2. They use an encrypted control frequency. 3. It is not against the law in your area. 4. you have a Trunked scanner. Following trunked frequencies requires a trunked scanner which is very different from regular everyday scanners. If the photo of your scanner is accurate then it appears you have Digital capability so that won't be a problem. You can go to Radio shack and purchase a book on Public Safety frequencies and Control Frequencies which will give you the proper frequency range but they will tell you nothing about Encryption on any Frequency. If you can not find a Control Frequency then you will not be able to track the hoping that is used in a trunked system. By the way, a Regular scanner runs about $50 where as a Trunked Scanner runs $150 to $200.

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:

BC244CLT Base Scanner: can't hear local police calls only ambulance calls...


Chances are that your police communications have moved to a trunked radio system, while fire and EMS remain on a "standard" system for compatibility. For the latest information on active frequencies and systems in your area, visit www.RadioReference.com

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.

HOPKINSVILLE KY. POLICE DEPT. CHANGED TO A


Unfortuantly the pro-82 is not a trunked scanner, it's only a vhf/uhf scanner and cannot pickup trunked systems. You need to replace it with atleast a pro-95 to pick up trunked systems. If you need your manual for the pro-82 follow this link.

What Type Of Scanner Do I Need?


Well, the above answer is somewhat correct, but could use a little clarification.

A radio that transmits in a P25 format is digital. Digital transmissions can be trunked, but don't have to be (as is the case here). In the case of scanners, every major brand scanner out there that works on digital transmissions will decode trunked of conventional digital and analog transmissions.

The current digital models run anywhere from $399 to $599. Radio Shack has 2 newer models out that will do digital...the PRO-106 (handheld) and the PRO-197 (base/mobile). These have been on sale recently for $399. Uniden also makes digital trunking scanners..the latest models being the 396 (portable) and the 996 (base/mobile). While the 996 has the capability to be used with a GPS in a mobile setting, this feature isn't really worth the added cost, especially when compared to the feature rich PRO-197.

There are older model digital scanners, such as the Radio Shack PRO-96, PRO-2096 and the Uniden 250D and 796D. While these receive digital transmissions, the newer scanners have upgraded digital decoding algorithms that provide better audio quality and intelligibility. Also, the older scanners may not be able to decode the 700 MHz public safety band, which is becoming increasingly more popular since the 800 MHz band is quickly filling up.

One word of caution...be sure that the agency you are trying to monitor is not using encrypted transmissions. If you don't know...look up the system on radioreference.com. Channels that are encrypted usually have an "E" designation under the "mode" column. These transmissions CANNOT be decoded by any of the scanners currently on the market, even if you do have the encryption key.

I hope this helps you with your buying choices. Good luck!

Edacs frequencies


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.
