The memory on the unit is not retaining the frequencies. Check for a small battery on the circuit board like a button battery you would find on your computer motherboard. Replace the battery and reprogram the unit.

Why won't my Realistic Pro 2020 stop scanning


You might have the squelch turned up too high so the broadcast cannot break the squelch open. Here's an instruction manual (with how-to) for your scanner. Seems easy. Also make sure you have a good antenna so you can pick up signals.

Can you still hear police broadcast with a realistic pro-2020 scanner or has it become obsolete due to HD?


It would help to know your location. HD is High Definition. I believe you mean digital.

Have a pro 2020 realistic scanner have frequencies but they don`t seem to work. Can you please help?


See: http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/doc45/45530.htm

For a detailed "How To"

You may have frequencies that are no longer in use as most police, fire, and military have switched to digital radio which is not available on a scanner.

Is the Realistic Pro 20-20 Scanner obsolete? I can only program three digits on each side of the decimal.... Most channels today are in the xxx.xxxxx format.


Your PRO-2020, circa 1982, is old and tired, but not quite obsolete. The receiving bandwidth of this oldie is wide enough that you can just ignore the fourth digit. In some cases this may result in interference from an adjacent frequency, but it will usually work just fine. The 2020 is further limited in that it will not receive 800MHz frequencies, and it is not capable of tracking trunking systems or receiving digital transmissions, but what it does, it still does well. The PRO-2020, by the way, was one of the first keyboard-programmable scanners, and the first used in military intelligence surveillance operations.

RS Pro 2020 Scanner won't come out of scan mode, pad ineffective


If you mean a Bearcat 2020 radio, then that unit is ancient, and I'm amazed that it still works. If you're only monitoring one frequency, you can get a really cheap scanner to do that and replace the 2020.

Radio Shack (Realistic) PRO-2020 Scanner stuck in Scan Mode


Sounds like old age - the 2020 is nearly 30 years old! Have you tried just using the LOCKOUT feature on all channels except the you want? How about just programming the same frequency into all 20 channels?

Realistic pro 2020 scanner


The Realistic PRO-2052 is an old (vintage) scanner receiver with fixed AM and FM modes on the bands it cover, as specified by the U.S. band allocation. The PRO-2020 covers only the VHF and UHF frequencies and modes AM and FM is not user selectable. Frequencies can be programmed into any of the 20 memory channels

U.S. Coverage: (varies from state to state and other countries. We don't use 30-50 Mhz here in the Philippines for 2 way mobile communications, except for cordless phones)

30-50 Mhz Lower VHF at FM narrowband only (covers mobile, emergencies, businesses, etc. and
cordless phones)
108-136 Mhz Aircraft band at AM narrowband only
138-174 Mhz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (2 meter band)
410-512 MHz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (70 cm band)

If you're trying to select AM or FM for a specified frequency, I'm afraid you can't do that as it is not selectable.

If you are trying to program AM Broadcast frequencies (mediumwave (MW) or FM Broadcast frequencies (FM radio stations), those were not covered by your PRO-2020's microprocessor. Even if you modify your scanner to receive those bands, you will not hear radio transmission properly since the receiver do not decode FM wideband, which is the standard mode for FM broadcast and Television band.
