Re: radio shack pro 2055

Hi, My first guess with the limited info is, either you have the attenuator turned(which is like an RFgain), or you have a defect in the antenna or coax(if it's mobile.) For the attenuator see pg.66 of your manual.
I assume it's picking up your ham radio when you key it, but at close range it'll pick it up without an antenna.
I hope this helps you sort it out,, Mechanic

I was curious, if i put my 2055 scanner on 12 volts, instead of the required 13 volts, will it hurt it?

You won't damage anything with 12 volts. Equipment built for use in automobiles will often have a DC input marked 13.8 volts because it's the voltage delivered by a fully-charged battery. But any supply around 12 volts will work. Just be sure the supply has enough current available (around an amp should be fine for a scanner), and that you get the polarity right when connecting it.

Programing pager tone alerts

The scanner itself does not directly support decoding of pager tones, but if you know someone who can manage their way around a bit of soldering and hacking, they might be able to rig something up with an old pager which could be triggered from the audio output jack from the scanner.
