The frequencies probably aren't the same, so you're gonna have to do a little research, but hope this helps.

  1. Turn the scanner off and then back on.
  2. The first thing we'll do is clear all of the frequencies in the bank you'll use to listen to Gwinnett County.
  3. Press the black F button, then press 0, then press the F button again, then press CL, and then press the 1 button.
  4. Enter 000 and then press PGM to enter programming mode starting at channel 0. On the display the P on the left of the first line of the display says you're in programming mode, and the 000 indicates your looking at channel 0.
  5. Press the orange T button to enter trunking mode.
  6. Press the MODE button until Motorola is displayed on line 2 of the display.
  7. Press the PGM button again to begin entering frequencies. You'll enter 24 frequencies total. If you make a mistake while entering a frequency you can press the CL button to delete the last number entered. If you accidently press the PGM button twice while entering frequencies you can press the down arrow to back-up to the previous location.
  8. Enter the first frequency, 854.78750, then press ENT and then press PGM to go to the next channel.
  9. Repeat step #8 for the rest of the frequencies 854.81250, 854.83750, 855.31250, 855.48750, 855.76250, 855.78750, 855.81250, 856.81250, 856.83750, 856.91250, 857.81250, 857.83750, 857.91250, 858.78750, 858.81250, 866.13750, 866.21250, 866.38750, 867.33750, 867.38750, 867.96250, 868.11250, 868.13750, 868.48750.
  10. To double-check that you entered all of the frequencies correctly enter 0 and then the PGM button to go back to the first frequency entered.
  11. Press PGM to go through all 24 frequencies, if you see a mistake enter the correct frequency and then press ENT to save it, continue pressing PGM until you have verified all 24 frequencies.
  12. Next press 0 and then PGM to go back to the first frequency again.
  13. Press the MODE button until you see MO following the channel number on the first line of the display (P000 for example). After MO is displayed press PGM to go to the next frequency.
  14. Repeat step #13 for each of the 24 frequencies.

Hopefully Resetting or Initializing the scanner will clear the problem and get it working again for you. Instructions for these procedures are on page 38 and 39 of the scanner operating manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

MY RADIOSHACK NASCAR PRO-84 SCANS THREW CHANNELS BUT STAYS STUCK ON ONE CERTAIN WEATHER CHANNEL AND WONT CONTINUE SCANNING AND I NEED TO NO HOW TO DELETE THAT CHANNEL COMPLETELY.


The NOAA weather frequencies have constant broadcasts, so your scanner "locks" onto them. The only ways to prevent this are to either delete the weather frequency or lock it out. To delete, just program the frequency "0.0" (zero point zero) into the channel. To lock it out, press the L/O key while on the weather freq.

Pro-96 ,channels 1 thru 9 are locked out ,only 0 is


You are referring to banks, not channels. When bank 0 is active, then you push 0 to de-activate it, you have now removed all your banks from the scan list. To re-activate any bank, just press any number. This is confusing because locking out a channel and removing a bank from the scan list are two very different operations but use the same terminology.

How do clear the scanner to re program it


Programming a frequency into a channel clears the previous channel entry, so there's really no need to "clear" the scanner for reprogramming. To eliminate an unwanted frequency, you can either press the LOCKOUT key to prevent the scanner from stopping on a specific channel, or you can "zero" a channel:

1. Press SCAN/MAN to stop
scanning.
2. Use the number keys to enter
the channel number (1-200)
you want to clear.
3. Press PGM. F=C appears.
4. Press 0 then ENT. The
frequency number changes to
000.0000 to indicate the
channel is cleared.

We have a handheld radioshack 1000 channel scanner. All channels are locked up. How do we unlock?


try holding the LO (lockout) button down for a few seconds and it will probably unlock all the channels on the bank its locked up in, then move to the next bank of channels and do it again
