Unlike most every other RS scanner, the 2052 has Uniden firmware, and is fully PC controllable. If you have the cable and CD its easy or download the software here. http://www.qsl.net/kd5lmy/software1.htm

If not, download the manual here.http://mirror.bachelorsgrove.com/pro2052/

Hi - I don't know any frequencies to enter on my PRO-94. Is there a way that I can just scan all local channels?


You can run service searches as described in your manual to locate active frequencies, but those won't help with trunked systems. You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, by visiting:

HOW DO I PROGRAM THE CHANNEL IN AND LEAVE IT ON SCAN AND IT PICK THEM UP


To enter a known frequency into your scanner:
- Power the scanner ON
- Press the MAN key to stop scanning
- Press MAN repeatedly to select the channel to program
- Enter the desired frequency, including the decimal point
- Press E to enter your data into the scanner's memory

Repeat the process for other frequencies, and press the SCAN button when you're finished programming.

More detailed programming steps are presented in the factory operating manual, which you can download/print, free of charge, here:

How to tell what the buttons do?


The HOLD key lets you freeze the scanner on an active channel. For instance, if the scanner stops on channel 3, and there's a lot of action there. you can press HOLD to lock the scanner on that channel until you press the SCAN key. Repeatedly pressing the HOLD key will manually advance the selected channel.

SCAN releases a HOLD asnd will also take the unit out of PROGRAM or SEARCH modes and start it scanning the frequencies that you've programmed.

FUNCTION selects the secondary (lower) function of a key. For example, pressing FUNCTION and then the E (ENTER) key will switch the scanner to Pgm (Programming) mode - which lets you enter and store frequencies into the unit's memory so that you can scan them later.

All keyboard functions are explained in detail in the scanner operating manual, which you can download/print here:

Major Functions of Uniden BC 855 XLT Desktop Scanner

RANGES AND MODES:
29-54 MHz; 137-174 MHz; 406-512 MHz; and 806-956 MHz NFM; 118-136 MHz AM

MEMORIES & MEMORY SCANNING:
• The 855 receives mainly via frequencies programmed into its 50 memory channels. It does not have a VFO or dial mode as such, but can scan within two frequencies.
• To scan memory channels, press SCAN. To hold a channel, press MANUAL.
• The 50 channels are divided into 5 banks (Bank 1: Channels 1-10, Bank 2: 11-20, etc.).
• Any of the 5 banks can be turned off from scanning. To turn a bank on/off, press its number while in Scan Mode. Active banks are illuminated in the display.
• SPEED toggles between 8 & 16 channels per second in both scan & search modes.
TO ENTER A FREQUENCY IN A MEMORY CHANNEL:
• Press MANUAL.
• Press the channel number you wish to program using keypad.

I couldn't locate the manual for your scanner, but it's basically the same as the BC860XLT, except that the 860 has 100 channels. Other than that, all controls and functions are the same. You can download and print the manual for the 860 here:

I get all channels locked out. How do I unlock the channels.


You are pressing the "scan" button in the upper left hand position and getting all channels locked out? Correct?
If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency ###.#### then press "ENTER". Press "PGM"key again and enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies.
When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.
If you need the manual for the radio go to radioshack site and do a search for PRO95 and it will come up in PDF format.
Hope this helps. I have owned the pro 95 for maybe 6 or 7 years and after doing a little programming yesterday the thing is much more to my liking. It scanns quicker and scans the channels I wish to listen to.

Make sure you are entering your frequencies in empty channels unless you want to over write one that you don't want to use any longer. Press "PGM" until you get to an empty channel.

Raidoshack 1000 channel scanner


The frequencies probably aren't the same, so you're gonna have to do a little research, but hope this helps.

  1. Turn the scanner off and then back on.
  2. The first thing we'll do is clear all of the frequencies in the bank you'll use to listen to Gwinnett County.
  3. Press the black F button, then press 0, then press the F button again, then press CL, and then press the 1 button.
  4. Enter 000 and then press PGM to enter programming mode starting at channel 0. On the display the P on the left of the first line of the display says you're in programming mode, and the 000 indicates your looking at channel 0.
  5. Press the orange T button to enter trunking mode.
  6. Press the MODE button until Motorola is displayed on line 2 of the display.
  7. Press the PGM button again to begin entering frequencies. You'll enter 24 frequencies total. If you make a mistake while entering a frequency you can press the CL button to delete the last number entered. If you accidently press the PGM button twice while entering frequencies you can press the down arrow to back-up to the previous location.
  8. Enter the first frequency, 854.78750, then press ENT and then press PGM to go to the next channel.
  9. Repeat step #8 for the rest of the frequencies 854.81250, 854.83750, 855.31250, 855.48750, 855.76250, 855.78750, 855.81250, 856.81250, 856.83750, 856.91250, 857.81250, 857.83750, 857.91250, 858.78750, 858.81250, 866.13750, 866.21250, 866.38750, 867.33750, 867.38750, 867.96250, 868.11250, 868.13750, 868.48750.
  10. To double-check that you entered all of the frequencies correctly enter 0 and then the PGM button to go back to the first frequency entered.
  11. Press PGM to go through all 24 frequencies, if you see a mistake enter the correct frequency and then press ENT to save it, continue pressing PGM until you have verified all 24 frequencies.
  12. Next press 0 and then PGM to go back to the first frequency again.
  13. Press the MODE button until you see MO following the channel number on the first line of the display (P000 for example). After MO is displayed press PGM to go to the next frequency.
  14. Repeat step #13 for each of the 24 frequencies.
