Question about Radio Shack Pro-2096 Base Scanner

Dyslexic handicapped needs help programming the RS Pro-96

Hi,
I am a 73 y.o. with dyslexia. I purchased the RS PRO-96 Scanner 4 days ago.
I find the owners manual overwhelming to understand.
I need step-by-step instructions in order to input the frequencies in the order I want.
Example: Bank: 1-Maryland aircraft, 2-Maryland State Police, 3-Baltimore County Fire and police, 4-Baltimore City Fire and Police.

Question 1- Can you assist me?
Question 2- Will programming above frequencies interfere with the Pre-Programmed frequencies?
Sincerely,
Jim C.

Jim Not sure if my scanner and yours are exactly the same, but find your specified bank and press MAN, then PGM, and then enter your frequency. For talgroups (digital), press MAN, then PGM, then TRUNK, then enter your talkgroup ID number. Hope this helps...

Do you have something plugged into the side of the radio where the PC/IF port plug is? It sounds like it's looking for an update, and you need the RS cable a the 96 software in order to do that. Google it on radio reference.

Check the small battery on the circuit board. Another possibility is that you don't have enough battery voltage to operate the unit. Even external power supplies may not produce enough voltage if the main battery is bad.

Programing Radio Shack Pro 106 scanner


As an employee of Radioshack, I have found that you can use scancat lite to progrom the pro 106. Programing conventional trunking systems work well with this system. However after three days of frustration I did find out how to program the digital channels. After programing the conventional channels in, you will have to program the digital channels in manually. Do not program the group id's into the scanner, just leave it in a "wildcat" search. When the group Id shows up while listening to the scanner push enter and that will program the Id in. When you got the all the Id's that you need, then program the scanner to a private mode, this will let you to listen to just what you want to listen to. I am still working on finding better solutions.

Battery holder for Pro 95 scanner


Your pro 95 takes the same yellow rechargable battery pack as the pro 97. It is available at the site listing below. It is their #100-006. It cost 5.99 plus 10.95 shipping. I ordered it 4 days ago and got it two days ago. You may be able to save on shipping by calling them and requesting some sort of slower shipping.
