SOURCE: Would like to add a frequency to a Radio Shack

Absolutely. Just find either an empty channel or one that you want to delete - and program the new frequency. Doing so will not "mess up" any of the other programming.

The best programming instructions for your scanner are in the factory manual that you can download and print, at no cost, here:

I want my county on my scanner but it jumps to other counties how can i stop it from doing that


Make sure that you have the proper frequencies programmed into the scanner. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

If adjacent counties are using the same frequencies as your local services, there's no way to filter them out. If signals from the other counties are weaker than yours, adjusting the squelch might help, but that will also lower the scanner's sensitivity to the signals that you want.

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.

Need to do a master reset on pro 84 sanner but don't have manual


To RESET the PRO-84, turn the scanner OFF, then hold in the 2, 9 and HOLD keys and power the scanner ON. The word CLEAr will appear on the display to confirm the RESET.
While the manual for the PRO-84 has not been posted by Radio Shack, it is essentially a red PRO-83. You can download/print the 83 manual here:

Codes to reprogram


Do you mean the frequencies to listen to, or how to program it. Radio Shack has the programming directions, but the frequencies are local to you. This is not a digital scanner nor a trunked scanner, in which case, if your local PD/FD switched to a trunked system or digital trunked system you will need a new scanner. You should be able to program in your local weather radio channel, like 162.550 to test the unit though.

New Zealand


Are the transmissions you are trying to receive digital or analogue? The scanner will not receive digital transmissions.

I don't know about NZ, but in Australia, most emergency services are now on digital.

Are you able to receive any other frequencies, just to make sure the scanner is actually working?
