Hello, you can reset your pro 106 digital scanner by checking on the user manual. The solution on how to carry out the reset is definitely there, but if you don't have the manual, you can follow the below procedures: 1. First turn the scanner OFF then back on again. "Welcome To Digital Trunking" will display 2. Press the 0 button. "System Tests; Select Test; Exits if no Key Press" will display. 3. Press the number 1 button. "Factory Init; Erase Memory; ENTER if Yes; CL to Exit" will display. 4. Press the ENTER button. "Initializing; Clr Main Mem; V-Scan is OK; Please Wait" will display. Wait until the initialization of the scanner is complete before turning it off. When the scanner has finished initializing, "M000" will display on the top line and "Bank 0 Ch 00" will display on the bottom line. I wish you good luck.

I have a radio shack pro 106 is coming up heap error 21c321.What is this and how do I clear the error/

that means that you have a trunking system that has no sites assigned to it. If you do not have a 3rd party PC software, download PSREdit 500 from here ( 30 day free trial) Upload to the program then back to the radio and it will clear the heap error.

I am recieving a Heap error, 21E721 : 21EE

Hi Bruce,

Try doing it in the following order:

a) Turn on your radio.
b) Press Hold/Mon key
c) Press No.1 key
d) Press L/O key (the L/O icon should not show on display).
e) Press Hold/Mon key
f) Ch2 should be displayed

Now repeat everything d) onwards until all channels unlocked.

Once you are done, press scan and any frequency stored on your scanner will activate when reception is observed on any of these frequencies, the scan will stop on active frequencies before resuming the scan until another transmission is detected.

I hope this clarifies matters for you.

If you have not programmed any frequencies into the scanner, then it won't receive anything.

Heap error message on a pro scanner 106. heap error 21DB1F: 21E2 how to correct this issue

  • Turn the scanner on.
  • Press "0"
  • Press "1"
  • Press "ENT"
  • Now press any key
  • Now press any key again.

  • Somewhere along the line you programmed a talk group into your scanner that does not have any association with any trunking system and your scanner did not like it. You can either find the codes and erase them individually or the hard reset (reset to factory default) by following the steps above.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Which is the best sanner the pro96 or the pro106

I own both of these and like the 106 more. It isn't just because it is new, but it has several options that make it more "user friendly" as well as better features. Some of the high points are:
-Easier manual channel navigation
-Larger, easier to read display
-Easier scan list understanding
-Much better user interface (text menus)
-Colored LED that you can assign to different channels..such as your priority channels. This way you can see what your receiving at a glance without having to actually look at the display,
-Remote control capability using the Win500 software.

A Pro-96 is a good scanner, but the Pro-106 blows it out of the water.

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.
