Question about Radio Shack Pro-84 Handheld Scanner
The Pro 84.
Doesn't receive the NZ VHF Low Band 66-88MHz. The Police & Fire in most areas of NZ operate on the Emergency Services A Band 75.200-77.2MHz.
If you're living in one of the main populated centres of NZ the ownly solution to rx Police comms on that scanner is to tune into the UHF F-Band Beat portable H/H channels. They're linked to the VHF ESA band. Search the 485-488MHz range to find active channels in your area.
If you're living in the Auckland region. Then you'll be able to rx Fire communications the same way. Auckland is the only area in NZ using UHF fire repeaters. They're installed for vehicle comms. Also in the 485-488Mhz band.

Do you have a list of correct freq's for your area?
Make sure you have the scanner set on the correct mode (am/fm/ct/dc) for the freq's you have programmed. Each area of the country have their own individual freq. so their not stepping on each others transmission.
