Question about Radio Shack Pro-95 Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

Radio Shack Pro-95 Dual Trunk-Tracking Handheld Scanner has message that "all Channels are locked. looked up RS FAQ's on this scanner and it states to enter Function 1 then change from banks off to banks on." When entering the "func" key channels 123 start flashing but when I enter 1 the numbers reappear and nothing happens. Tried "func" key with the lock-out key and nothing happens. Nothing else in the manual on how to rx.

    Actually I was looking at my

    Pro-95 manual for an older model whereas this problem

    is for my Pro-97 model. When I manually enter all the channels

    in each Bank the top of the message board reads "M401FM 0.00000".

    I have to assume that all the Radio codes that were originally keyed

    in were purged. Will try to reinput and will advise if any problem.



    Tks,

    Tom

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency “xyz.abc” then press “ENTER”.

Press “PGM” key again until you get to an empty channel and then enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies. When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.

First press the manual button so you can go through the channels one by one. Then look for a button that has L/O(lock out) push this once for every channel you have a frequency programmed for it, the channel will probably not unlock if there is no frequency programmed to it.
Also see this manual for more details--

I have a pro 95 dual trunk scanner & it says all


  • Hi, I can help.

  • You probably have all frequencies in that bank locked out and all other banks locket out as well so you are seeing "All Ranges Locked Out."

  • You should be able to just push the number of the bank you want to have active again and activate it. If you have locked out some frequencies just press "MAN" for manual and scroll up and down through all the frequencies and hit "L/O" and the L/O will change to l/o (lower case letters) indicating the frequency is no longer locked. This has to be done manually for every frequency as there is no "master unlock" function on this scanner.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

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:

How do you set Pro-95 to receive police "Viper Channels" Mine, most of the time is static or beeping, Squelch doesn't help. Is there a software program upgrade for this. Located in Mooresville, N.C. 28117...


There isn't a Firmware upgrade for this scanner and I also do not think it is capable of Decoding these transmissions. My Pro-95 gets the beeps and tones also. This model of scanner was one of the last models R.S. produced before adding the digital capabilities.

Pro 95 dual trunk tracking scanner just stays on channel 3 does not scan up to the other 10 channels


the manual at "http://support.radioshack.com/manuals/ome20-525.pdf" (if you don't have it)
says that you may be in manual mode OR that the channel at 3 might be a "trunk guide", that means that the channel is used to send out digital permissions to the system for each radio in the unit(s) to use a certain freq. when they transmit. good luck!

Firstly make sure the "squelch" is set as per the manual (link below) page 26. http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/doc69/69487.pdf If that fails I suggest initializing the scanner to factory defaults as below:
