If the frequencies you had before were police, ambulance, fire ect. then they have all gone onto the new tetra digital system and so you will not be able to pick them up.

if its things like the coastguard, airband, amateur radio that you caan no longer pick up, then the scanner may be faulty.

From memory the pro 97 used to scan fairly slowly anyway, but if its scanning like REALLY slowly, say a channel every couple of seconds, then check the Squelch setting on the scanner

SCANNER PRO 97 WAS TRYING TO PROGRAM AND NOM WHEN I HIT SCAN IT SHOWS AII CHANNELS LOCKED OUT.


You may have a priority channel selected if it refuses to scan.i believe most scanners will reset if you remove batteries for a period.some cellular channels are blocked in the USA so if it's not a cellular frequency and you are not in a country with restrictions then you really need to understand how to input a frequency ....store it... Remember to adjust squelch as the squelch when turned fully on will not usually output any sound and lock scan if it's turned off in most cases.

My pro-82 scanner scans threw all channels but will not pick up any frequencies?


To verify that the scanner is working properly, program one or more of the weather frequencies(162.4, 162.425, 162.45, 162,475, 162.5, 162.525, 162.55, 161.65, 161.775, 163.275) into memory and then scan. NOTE: Not all frequencies are in use in all areas, so you may need to try several. If you receive the weather broadcasts, then you may need to adjust the squelch setting on your scanner to receive local signals. You also need to verify that the frequencies programmed into the scanner are valid, active frequencies in your area. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

If the scanner fails to receive the weather broadcasts, you need to check the antenna connections inside the unit and/or have the scanner checked/repaired by a qualified technician.

I cleared my scanner pro-82 now how do i program the channels back. the bank1 is blinking and is on channel 1. i do not have any scan codes for local fd/pd in the 78801 area zip code.


For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area (they're really NOT codes), visit:

www.RadioReference.com

To program known frequencies into your scanner,

1. Press PGM. PGM appears. Then enter the channel number (1-200) where you want to store a frequency, then press PGM again.
2. Use the number keys and DELAY/. to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel.
Your scanner automatically rounds the entered frequency down to the closest valid frequency. For example, if you enter a frequency of 151.473, your scanner accepts it as 151.470.

Press DELAY/.if you want the scanner to pause 2 seconds on this channel before it proceeds to the next channel after a transmission ends. The scanner also stores this setting in the channel.

To program the next channel in sequence, press PGM and repeat Steps 2 and 3.

PROGRAM FREQ IN BC142XL


Its so easy to use you really don't need a manual for the Uniden BC
142XL scanner.

Turn it on. Push the MANUAL button to stop it from scanning.

Push number 1, then push MANUAL again. This should leave you on
channel one.

Using the keypad enter the frequency you want to monitor, then push
E. Press REVIEW at anytime to see what frequency is programmed
there. If the review button flashes 000.0000 on the display, you might be entering an invalid frequency. Refer to the frequency coverage list below.

Push MANUAL to step to channel number two. Enter the frequency. Push E. Push MANUAL to step to channel three. Repeat this process until all ten channels are programmed, or you've run out of frequencies to enter.

Push "SCAN" to start automatically scanning the frequencies. The
radio will stop when it hears someone talking, and resume scanning two
seconds after the conversation has stopped.

Frequency Coverage:

20 to 29.7 MHz (10 Meter "Ham" Band)
29.7 to 50 MHz (VHF Low Band)
50 to 54 MHz (6 Meter Amateur Band)
136 to 144 MHz (Military Land Mobile)
144 to 148 MHz (2 Meter "Ham" Band)
406 to 420 MHz (Federal Government Land Mobile)
420 to 450 MHz (70cm "Ham" Band)

How do clear the scanner to re program it


Programming a frequency into a channel clears the previous channel entry, so there's really no need to "clear" the scanner for reprogramming. To eliminate an unwanted frequency, you can either press the LOCKOUT key to prevent the scanner from stopping on a specific channel, or you can "zero" a channel:

1. Press SCAN/MAN to stop
scanning.
2. Use the number keys to enter
the channel number (1-200)
you want to clear.
3. Press PGM. F=C appears.
4. Press 0 then ENT. The
frequency number changes to
000.0000 to indicate the
channel is cleared.

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.

FINDING FREQUENCIES


87ff97c.jpgNo it can't sorry. If you want to scan things all the way up to the 900 MHz frequency you should get a Regency Touch K500. Its not a portable scanner however. It may be a little hard to find because Regency went out of business a while back, but look on e-Bay you'll find it there.
