I have a pro 23 hand held scanner it scan but I only pick to weather channel. Thanks, George

You will need to program in your local channels - ANALOG ONLY will work, not Digital. I suggest you go to "Radio Refererence DOT com" and go to their database; select your state, then your county, and it will list many frequencies for you to program to your radio. Also, SOME, not many, but SOME, Radio Shacks actually have a ham radio guy working there that can help you program your radio or help you 'CLONE' it from another identical radio. Good luck, and let me know how it goes. Happy New Year my friend.

With the channel display showing 000.0000 you may be able to program a new frequency into it, and the new program will release the lockout. Have you tried the normal programming for any channels?

Programing Radio Shack Pro 106 scanner

As an employee of Radioshack, I have found that you can use scancat lite to progrom the pro 106. Programing conventional trunking systems work well with this system. However after three days of frustration I did find out how to program the digital channels. After programing the conventional channels in, you will have to program the digital channels in manually. Do not program the group id's into the scanner, just leave it in a "wildcat" search. When the group Id shows up while listening to the scanner push enter and that will program the Id in. When you got the all the Id's that you need, then program the scanner to a private mode, this will let you to listen to just what you want to listen to. I am still working on finding better solutions.

Hwy pre-programmed frequencies

Unfortunately, I think this is a common problem with these radios. I have a brand new BCT8 and it started to not receive anything on the pre-programed highway patrol after using less than a month. Unfortunately the best bet would be to contact Uniden which they will probably tell you to reload the firmware (which won't solve the problem) or send it to them to fix.

  • Clock/Alarm - Large backlit LCD displays time and features "any button" snooze.
  • 30 Channels - You can program each of these memory channels to store one frequency.
  • 10 Bands - Including all public service bands, 4 "HAM" bands, federal and military land mobile bands.
