Question about Radio Shack Pro-96 Scanner

Pro 96 Rebanding Issue

I have programmed a Pro 96 to track a Motorola Smartnet 800 mhz digital system. The scanner will track all the frequencies with the exception of one, 851.3250. The channel in question does not serve as a control channel, only voice. When the scanner should be receiving voice transmissions on this frequency, it displays 862.3125 as the VC even though this frequency is not programmed. Has anyone else experienced a similar problem and was it related to rebanding issues?

You need to program custom tables into the Pro-96. Visit the link above.

Regency R1077 base scanner can not delete old frequencies to reprogram scanner


Press "Manual", then press digit key ("0/10" thru "9") that corresponds with the channel to be changed ("0/10" = ch10). Next, press the digit and decimal point keys to enter the frequency in megahertz (Mhz) to be stored in the channel. To store 453.100 Mhz in channel 2, you would press "Manual", then "2". Press the following keys in order: "4" "5" "3" "." "1" "0" "0", followed by pressing the "Enter" key. Repeat this process for up to 10 channels.If you wish to clear unused channels, you should be able to select the channel, then enter "." followed by the "Enter" key.

This scanner will only accept frequencies between 30.000Mhz and 599.999 Mhz. Attempting to input frequencies outside this range will result in an error message.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Want to know if radio shack makes a handheld scanner that can be used to track dogs


No. Dog tracking systems operate in the 216 to 220 MHz range, frequencies that are allocated to Amateur radio and telemetry/radio location, and scanners do not cover these frequencies. Even if you could receive the signal, all you would hear is digital hash/noise that would not give you any tracking/location information. The tracking systems only work with their dedicated receivers/display units.

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...


If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

800 MHz frequency Mode problem


You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

Reprograming the pro 95 to get the 850.000 band


The linked article below indicates that the PRO-95 and other non-digital Radio Shack scanners are not capable of rebanding to provide coverage of the revised Motorola systems. For more information you should contact your local Radio Shack store.

I am trying to program my Uniden BCT8 to track LTR systems but having problems.


LTR systems must be entered in a specific order so that channel 1 is 1st, channel 2 is 2nd etc...
Are you sure that the BCT8 tracks LTR systems? A Radio Shack PRO 92 tracks all 3 trunking systems (analog) including Motorola and LTR, while some Uniden only track 1, and some don't do trunking systems at all.

We have a police digital scanner havent been able to receive the police frequency wonder if they have been changed? i dont want to have to pay for this service just need new frequency numbers if they have...


Your community's public service radio frequencies may have been rebanded. Rebanding was the result of services throughout the nation being moved in the 800Mhz band.

Complete rebanding details of this can be found here:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Rebanding

The Pro-2096 scanner can be reprogrammed to receive your old services in the new band with software that is run on your computer and connected to the scanner. It is available for a small fee ($30). More information on this can be found below:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Win96

Many scanners are not capable of upgrading, and were reduced to "paper weights". Consider yourself lucky that a $30 upgrade will restore the full functionality of the radio. A great deal of information on your scanner can be found here:

http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Pro-2096

I hope this helps!

Cant pick up anything


no your local pd decided to chance freq bands and go 800 mhz, some switch to digital radios to. in most part a pro 96 will do, but if they are in the rebanding area it will be no good. you might choose a hand scanner like a bcd 396xt or mobile bcd 996t, all of them will be in the $500 range http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Pro-96 http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Rebanding http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/BCD396XT http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/BCD996T
