For a comprehensive database of active frequencies (they're not codes) in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit: www.RadioReference.com
The Philadelphia area has likely moved to trunked radio systems in the 800MHz band, and your scanner is not capable of receiving such signals, so you'll be limited in what you can tune in with your PRO-2033.
not knowing the area you live in i would recommend going to www.google.com and typing in emergency codes (the area you are in) also you can type in the search box... scanner frequecies (area that you live in) and you should find quite a few websites
Congrats on entering the scanner world. Two different points of information you'll need: 1. Local municipal services' radio frequencies 2. Download a "10-code" definition list
If you google search San Joaquin County and "radio frequencies" you get a list of all the local radio frequencies that the local services in your area are broadcasting on. Then you can program them into your scanner... sorry if you already figured this part out.. Secondly, you can download a police call 10-code definition list and you be up and running. Print out your code list and you'll have alot of them memorized real quick. Also you'll get used to the local abbreviations being used in your area... for example in my area, "ECR" means El Camino Real.. a main street near here. Have a blast..

Press the WEATHER button. If the scanner picks up a weather broadcast then you either have the wrong frequencies programmed in for your area, or it's possible that you're in a "dead" zone where you just won't receive much without an outdoor antenna. If no weather broadcast is received, chances are that the scanner's processor is "fried." Yours is an old scanner, and they do wear out.
For local frequencies, try CityFreq.com or RadioReference.com. Both have excellent databases.
Hey man, my favorite site for the best information on frequencies in my immediate local area is www.radioreference.com from here, click database, then database home and it is common sense from there. hope this helps...
