Did you use a software program or have radio shack program the scanner for you? If so, check to make sure the banks were selected in the software to be enabled. I assume the your scanner shows 0123****** Now to manually select banks, simply press the number for the selected bank to both select and de-select as warrented. When you press 4, bank 4 will now be scanned. Also, should you press 1, bank 1 will not be scanned.

I Havel a pro-95 scanner and I have frequencies programmed into banks 1 thru 6 and the scanner isn't scanning banks 2 thru 6


Make sure the banks are enabled and the frequencies in the banks aren't locked out. If you are scanning trunked systems make sure the control channels are set up properly.

Keep in mind you cannot scan digital systems with this scanner, only analog systems and frequencies.

I have tried to adjust my squelch but all i hear is loud static in between transmissions


  • Hi, I can help.

  • If your getting transmissions then the receive is working.If your squelch is not adjusting out then it is possible your antenna, or the connector, is not working right. Hand held scanner antennas are the same across the board as for frequency use. The connector your antenna uses is a standard BNC connector. So your antenna is really universal which mean you don't have to go to Uniden and pay top dollar for their antenna.


  • Now it is possible the squelch knob is giving you trouble. but I would see if you can borrow an antenna just to try from anyone you know that has a hand held scanner. As long as their scanner works well with that antenna it should on yours too. If it don't then check the connector for the antenna on the scanner and make sure it is not loose. You can open the scanner and just eyeball the connections and make sure no soldier joints are not cold.

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

Scanner antenna causing static


Sounds like a bad, loose or dirty connection.
it's possible that there may be a broken soldered joint on the antenna connector.
Open up( power off first) and resolder the joints as they can breakdown over time(dry joint).

Antennas Uniden Bearcat BC148XLT


Height and placement of the antenna determines range. Also, check to see you have the antenna perpendicular to the ground (straight up), and place the antenna where it has 19" clear around it. (not up against a wall or other obstruction)

Placing the existing antenna higher, or replacing it with an external antenna would give you more range. A simple test before purchasing a new connector, coax and antenna for the scanner, would be to place the scanner where you think you would place an antenna and see if it gives you the range you desire.

External antennas are available from most any radio shop. (They would need to know what type of connector you need to connect the coax to the back of the unit.)

Just bought this scanner used and having problems with Banks 3 and 4


while the scanner is scanning press buttons 3 and 4 and they should start scanning too, if they dont then go to the first channel in bank 3 manually and press LO to unlock it, then hit manual again to go to the next channel and press LO again to unlock it( all of the channels in the bank are probably either locked out or empty(nothing programmed into them)

Bank are locked out


Simple, some Radio Shack models respond to their preset lock out override control protocol. Try holding the lock out button and the scanner should override the lock out on the banks. If that doesn't work, you may need to un-lock them one by one, which may be time consuming. Or, you could reprogram the scanner all together.

Hope this helps!

My scanner


You may have lost your antenna connection.. Is the connection point loose (rotates a little) if you remove the antenna?

If yes, they you need to open it up and repair the connection, and re-tighten the BNC connector..

Trunking frequencies


Did you initialize your scanner? If you did, then you also deleted your trunking banks (1-9). These are the banks that store the channels that were inputted by you. The scanner will display "All channels locked out," when all of these banks are empty. You may have to put the frequencies in again. I suggest using win97. There is a 30day trial. This is the only program that I know of that will work with this scanner.

The pre-programmed channels should still be there. If you press and hold the scan button for a couple of seconds you should see the signal stalker running.

Good luck.

Cant get anything


Sounds to me like the antenna connector is damaged or loose, or the scanners receiver is faulty. If the antenna connector is loose, you could try to reinforce it by soldering the separated wires or ports. If the receiver is faulty, you'll have to get a new scanner.

Hope this helps!
