Question about Radio Shack Pro-95 Handheld Scanner

3 Answers

Pro-95 stopped scanning

I tried using Don Starr's scanner utility to upload some new frequencies and when I tried using the scanner after the process it would not scan. I even tried resetting it but with no luck. Can someone please help me? Thanks

Try reloading the frequencies or deleting them altogether and see if it starts working.

Please let me know how this goes and we can go from there to fix this problem.

thanks

There might have been a problem when uploading new frequencies with the utility, and all frequencies are erased. Unless there are some frequencies on the scanner, it will not scan.

Here is the online programming tutorial:

Here is the full manual Should include Quick guide:

Here is FREE programming software for the PC:
Includes hardware info. You can buy programming cable at Radio Shack to connect to your PC.

It could also be that something might have fried inside. If you are unsuccessful trying to program new frequencies, I recommend you take the scanner back to Radio Shack and get it sorted out by a pro.

Hope that helps...

How can i stop the squelch ive tryed turning the sqcuelch doesnt help


Plug the AC adapter into the back of the scanner and into a wall electrical outlet. Screw the antenna into the receptacle on the back of the scanner (extend the antenna to full length for best reception).

  • 2 Set the squelch level to allow signals to be heard by turning the squelch knob counterclockwise. Rotate the volume knob clockwise until you hear static. Slowly turn the squelch knob clockwise until the static noise disappears.
  • 3 Start programming frequencies into the scanner by pressing the "Manual" button.
  • 4 Press the up arrow or down arrow key until the channel you wish to program is visible on the display.
  • 5 Use the numbers on the keypad to enter the frequency for the local transmitter you wish to receive.
  • 6 Press the "E" key to complete the process of entering the frequency.
  • 7 Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each additional frequency you wish to monitor.
  • 8 Press the "Scan" key to start the scanning process. The scanner stops on a channel when it detects a signal strong enough to hear over the squelch setting. Two seconds after the signal stops, the scanning process resumes.

    How do you program a radio shack to the 700mhz trunking chanels


    You will probably have to use a '3rd party' SOFTWARE package. Mr. Donn Starr has written software for most of the GRE / Radio Shack scanners, and using his software will usually allow you to enter 700MHz frequencies. You will need the USB Scanner programming cable and software from Radio Shack, then search online for a link to get Don Starr's software. You might be able to try it out for free for a little while, but it is really worth the $30 for how easy it makes it to program your scanner once you get the doggone Radio Shack USB scanner programming cable configured to work with your computer. Let me know if you have more questions.

    How do you program a uniden bearcat scanner bc355c


    Turn on the radio
    Press the "band" button
    Keep pressing the "band" button until you come within the parameters of the frequency that you want
    Let the radio scan until it gets close to the actual frequency that you're looking for
    Press the "hold" button and use the arrow "up" or "down" button till you lock in the correct frequency
    Once you have the frequency locked in, press the "program" button
    Press the "private" button
    The unused channel will be flashing
    Press the "program" button, this locks the frequency into that channel
    Continue this process until all of the frequencies are loaded into the radio

    Is there software for the pro 96 to monitar edacs


    This scanner only monitors 2 of the 3 types of trunking systems. There is no digital voice inversion. There is an AGC control for the digital voice to try either way DG (on) or Dg (off) There is software you can buy to program the PRO96 from Don Starr. There are two Yahoo GrOUPS you can join to discuss this radio, in addition to forums on RadioReference DOT com.

    My owner's manual for Uniden BC370CRS is NO help! Program help!


    Find the frequency you would like to store, press "E" pgm, then select the bank you would like to store it in (1 thru 10) by using arrow up or down then hit "E" again and it will save it in that bank. When you hit scan this will scan all your saved frequencies.
    For scanning all frequencies not saved, move the switch to scanner and arrow up or down, when you find one you would like to save follow the process above.

    Scanner not working


    Did you use a software program or have radio shack program the scanner for you? If so, check to make sure the banks were selected in the software to be enabled. I assume the your scanner shows 0123****** Now to manually select banks, simply press the number for the selected bank to both select and de-select as warrented. When you press 4, bank 4 will now be scanned. Also, should you press 1, bank 1 will not be scanned.
