According to the manual the Pro 94 should cover that frequency.
Please note, certain frequencies are blocked in some countries. I see no reason why 217.031 should fall into this category although the closest may be 217.030 which should be close enough

Take a look at the manual >HERE< which should help you to program your scanner.

Best wishes...:-)

Scanner not picking up local police-Fire freq


Do you still receive NOAA weather frequencies? Sounds like your local agencies have switched from simplex/standard frequency operation to trunking. I suggest you visit www.RadioReference.com to view the latest on active frequencies and systems in your area.

Can the pro-94 receive digital signals


Unfortunately, no. The PRO-94 can monitor conventional or trunked analog systems, but it cannot process digital signals. To do that you'll need a scanner that specifies DIGITAL, APCO, APCO-25, or P25.

Need the manual for your PRO-94? You can download/print it here:

142XL scanner.

Turn it on. Push the MANUAL button to stop it from scanning.

Push number 1, then push MANUAL again. This should leave you on
channel one.

Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
E. Press REVIEW at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the frequency coverage list below.

Push MANUAL to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push E. Push MANUAL to step to channel three. Repeat this process until all ten channels are programmed, or you've run out of frequencies to enter.

Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.

Frequency Coverage:

20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)

Wanted manual realistic 2010scanner


The realistic 2000 series scanners do not have a "VFO" (variable frequency occilator) in the true meaning of the sence. This basicly means that they can only scan the channels or memories that you have programmed.

You can however set a low frequency (like 144 Mhz) and a high frequency (like 145 Mhz) and the scanner will "bounce" between the two, picking up anything in between.

Do you have the operating manual? If not, here is a copy

Turn on your Pro-2010 by rotating [VOLUME] clockwise. (When first turned on, your Pro-2010 may start scanning).
Rotate [SQUELCH] fully counterclockwise. You'll hear a rushing noise from the speaker. Slowly rotate [SQUELCH] clockwise until the noise just stops.
You're now ready to start entering frequencies.

Programming Frequencies
Before programming frequencies, make sure your Pro-2010 is turned on and the SQUELCH is adjusted.
Suppose you want to program Channel 1 to receive 162.55 MHz. Here's how you would do it:

1. Press [MANUAL] and select channel 1. You can do this in two ways:
press [MANUAL] continuously until the Display indicates Channel 1 or
by pressing [1] [MANUAL].

2. Press [PROGRAM] to enter the programming mode.

3. Enter the desired frequency. In this case, press the [1] [6] [2] [.]
[5] [5] keys. Check the display to make sure the frequency it shows
is the one you meant to program. If it is, press the [ENTER] key.

4. To add more frequencies, just press [PROGRAM] to advance to the next
channel and follow the steps above.

5. If you ever want to change the frequency entered for a specific
channel, just enter the new frequency "over" the old frequency using
steps 1, 2, and 3.

Make a mistake while entering the frequency? Just press [CLEAR], enter the correct frequency and press [ENTER]. If you're entering a new frequency in place of an old one, the old frequency won't be "erased" when you press [CLEAR]. It will remain stored on that channel until you correctly enter a
new frequency and press [ENTER].

You'll hear a "peep" sound as you press the various keys. This lets you know the key has been properly "entered" into your Pro-2010.

Using the Scanning Function
Your Pro-2010 will automatically scan all the channels you've programmed and stop whenever it finds a signal. To scan channels, just press the [SCAN] key.
To stop scanning, just press [MANUAL] and you can select specific channels
you want to listen to.

IMPORTANT! Your Pro-2010 won't scan unless SQUELCH is set to the point where no sound is heard if a signal isn't being received.

Delay Function
When your Pro-2010 is scanning, it will stop whenever it finds a signal on a channel. As soon as the signal ends, the scanning function will resume. Most communications heard will be two-way. To make sure you don't miss any replies, press [DELAY]. This will cause your Pro-2010 to stay on a channel for two seconds after the end of a transmission, giving you time to hear any reply. To release the Delay function, just press [DELAY] again. The Delay indicator will show on the display when the Delay function is used.

Lockout Function
You may want your Pro-2010 to "skip over" certain frequencies while it's scanning (such as continuously transmitted weather broadcasts). To "lock out" such channels, follow these steps:
1. Press [MANUAL] to stop scanning. Continue to press [MANUAL] to
advance to the channel you want to lock out.

2. When you reach the channel, press [LOCK OUT]. The display will show
[o] to indicate this channel will be skipped over during scanning.

3. To release the lockout, press [MANUAL] to stop scanning. Advance to
the channel that is locked out and press [LOCK OUT] once again. [o]
will disappear from the display.

If you use the lockout function on all channels, scanning will be impossible - you'll only be able to change channels using [MANUAL].

Speed Selection
Your Pro-2010 will normally scan channels at a rate of four channels per second. If you press [SPEED], channels will be scanned at a rate of nine per second. Press [SPEED] again to return to a rate of four channels per second.

Priority Function
You might want to scan other channels yet not miss a call on a channel of particular interest to you (police, fire, ambulance, etc.). The Priority function will let you scan other channels - but if a call is received on the Priority channel, your Pro-2010 will automatically switch to the
Priority channel!

1. Only Channel 1 can be used as Priority Channel: Key in the desired
Priority frequency into Channel 1.

2. Priority function works only when the unit is in Scan or Manual mode.

3. Press [PRIORITY] to start Priority function. A [P] will appear on the
display.

4. Press [MANUAL] or [SCAN] to listen to other channels. Your Pro-2020
will check the Priority channel and switch to it if a signal is
received on it.

5. To cancel Priority function, press [PRIORITY] again. the [P] will
disappear from the display.

SEARCHING WITH YOUR PRO-2010
One great feature of your Pro-2010 is its ability to "search" for frequencies being used. This means you can hear all the action on the airwaves in your area! To use this great feature, just follow these steps:
1. Press [PROGRAM] key.

2. Press [LIMIT] key. Enter the lower limit of frequency range to be
searched (such as 45.00 MHz). Press [ENTER].

3. Press [LIMIT] key again. Enter the upper limit of frequency range to
be searched (such as 46.00 MHz). Press [ENTER].

4. Press either [up arrow] or [down arrow] to start Search. [Down arrow]
will start search from the highest frequency and go down. [Up arrow]
will start from the lowest frequency and go up.

5. You can control the speed of the search by using the [SPEED] key to
accelerate or to slow down the search.

6. Search will stop when a frequency is found with a signal. To restart search, press [up arrow] or [down arrow]. In Program Mode, search range will be displayed each time [LIMIT] is pressed. It is impossible to change the lower frequency only: to change lower frequency you must change higher frequency first. The higher frequency can be changed any time.

Storing Frequencies
If you want to enter some of the frequencies found during search, do this:
1. Press [MONITOR] when your Pro-2010 finds a frequency you want to store.

2. Use [MANUAL] key to select a channel to enter the frequency your Pro-
2010 found. The display will show the frequency currently stored on
the channel, but don't worry - the old frequency will be erased when
you start to enter the new one.

3. Press [PROGRAM].

4. Press [MONITOR] again. The new frequency found during the search will
be displayed.

5. Press [ENTER] to put the new frequency into the channel in place of
the old frequency.

6. Press either [up arrow] or [down arrow] to resume the search. To
return to manual or program operation, press [MANUAL] or [PROGRAM].
To resume the search from one of the limit frequencies, press [LIMIT]
and then [up arrow] or [down arrow].

Error Indications
Sometimes when you try to enter a frequency for a channel or as a search range limit, you may find an ------ on the display. This means the frequency is in error and you won't be able to enter it into your Pro-2010. Such frequency errors usually mean you've entered a frequency outside the ranges your Pro-2010 operates on (such as 225.00 MHz) or you've put the decimal point in the wrong place (14.682 MHz instead of 146.82 MHz). Check carefully to find your mistake and then press [CLEAR]. You can now enter the correct frequency.

Hope this helps,

If your still having the problem, it could be that the transmitter for that freq lost some of it's power, so your scanner cannot pick up a clear signal. If everything else is working ok, that's my guess. Hope this helps,,, Mechanic

press the manual button a few times, and make sure there are actually some freq. programmed into the unit. if there are freq other than 000.000000 in there, press the s/s (lockout) button and see if this unlocks the frequencies to allow them to be scanned.
