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 ??

.........i want to switch my scanner over to

Sorry, but the Uniden Bearcat BCT8 is an analog-only scanner, and there is no magic that will enable it to receive and process digital signals. EDACS, however, is NOT a digital system. It's discussed at length in the BCT8 operating manual, which also contains step-by-step programming instructions for EDACS systems. You can also find a lot of useful information on EDACS, and specifics on systems in use in your area, at:

If you don't have the manual for your scanner, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Is there software for the pro 96 to monitar edacs

This scanner only monitors 2 of the 3 types of trunking systems. There is no digital voice inversion. There is an AGC control for the digital voice to try either way DG (on) or Dg (off) There is software you can buy to program the PRO96 from Don Starr. There are two Yahoo GrOUPS you can join to discuss this radio, in addition to forums on RadioReference DOT com.

Scanner will not scan the 800 band

You didn't mention your location or the type(s) of digital system signals you lost, but if you've been listening to an EDACS system it's possible that the manager has switched on the PROVOICE security option. That would prevent your scanners from recognizing the effected users and would also account for both scanners being effected. If your area is using EDACS I suggest that you visit to check on system particulars.

The PRO-95 is also known for losing its logic and requiring a RESET or INITIALIZE, although it would odd for two units to go squirrelly at the same time.

If all else fails, you can RESET or INITIALIZE the scanners to bring them back to normal operation.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, penpoint, etc.) into the RESET hole on the back of the scanner
- Gently press and then release the RESET button inside the hole.

NOTE: RESET will NOT erase the data that you've programmed into the scanner.

If RESET doesn't clear the problem, you can carry out the more drastic INITIALIZE process.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Power the scanner back ON
- Press 0 then 1 while "Welcome to Dual Trunking" is displayed.
- "Initializing Please Wait" will appear for about 2 seconds.

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the INITIALIZE process is complete (M000 and Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display). The INITIALIZE procedure will reset the scanner to original factory settings and erase all data that you have programmed.

Cant get a answer on how to program my pro-97 scanner

here is a quote from the manual; hope it helps you.

1. Press MAN, enter the bank (0-9) and channel number (00-
99) where you want to store a frequency, then press MAN
again. M and the bank and channel number appear at the
upper left corner of the display (for example: M000).
Press FUNC. Then press e or d. The bank number moves in
the direction of the arrow pressed.
Press FUNC. Then hold down e or d. The bank number
moves continuously in the assigned direction.
Press e. The channel number moves upward one by one.
Or, press d. The channel number moves downward one
by one.
2. Press PGM. M changes to P.
3. Use the number keys and ./DELAY to enter the frequency
(including the decimal point) you want to store.
If you make a mistake, press CL to delete a single digit or press
and hold CL about 2 seconds to delete all digits.
4. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel.
If you made a mistake in Step 3, Invalid Freq. briefl y
appears and the scanner beeps when you press ENT. Start
again from Step 3.
Your scanner automatically rounds the entered frequency
to the nearest valid frequency. For example, if you enter a
frequency of 151.553, your scanner accepts it as 151.550.

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.
