Question about Radio Shack Pro-2055 Base Scanner

1 Answer

How do I get the pro-2055 scanner to only hear the Trunking channels I want and by-pass the agencies I don't want to hear. I've programed the talk groups in but can't get it into an ID scan mode.

My scanner will not transmit digital trunking channels


There may have been a change in the digital transmitting system

Looking remove all stored channels from scanner and start over.


Initializing the scanner will erase all programmed information and return your scanner to its original factory settings. To initialize your scanner:

- Power the scanner OFF.
- Power the scanner ON. "Multi-system Trunking Scanner" appears on the display.
- Press 0 (zero) while the above message is displayed.
- Press 1.
- Press ENT. "Initializing please stand by" appears on the display.

DO NOT power the scanner OFF until the initializing process is complete and the display shows "M000 Bank0 Ch00"

I have a uniden bearcat scanner and cant pick up my local police dept. I put the frequency in and still dont hear anything. I have a bc145xl 16 channel scanning radio and want to know if its compatible...


If you programmed the correct frequency, you should be getting reception. Check www.RadioReference.com to verify the frequency. Otherwise, you may be too far from the transmitter to receive signals. Try your scanner in other locations, check your antenna, and try receiving the PD on another scanner.

The MARCS - Ohio Multi-Agency Radio Communications system - is a Motorola Type II SmartZone Omnilink Trunking system that utilizes APCO-25 digital transmissions. Your BC145XL is not compatible with trunking or digital systems. In order to follow the MARCS you will need one of the following scanners:
GRE PSR-500, PSR-600
Radio Shack PRO-106, PRO-197, PRO-96, PRO-2096
Uniden BC250D, BC785D, BC296D, BC796D, BCD396T, BCD396T, BCD996T, BCD996XT, or the brand new HomePatrol-1

Is the pro 2055 digital ?


The PRO-2055 is a versatile conventional/trunking scanner, but it does not have the capability to monitor APCO-25 digital transmissions. For an operating manual that is "Easier To Read" than the factory operating instructions, follow this link:

800 MHz frequency Mode problem


You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

Locking in to my local police dept


they should have sold you the book with all the codes for law enforcment agencies so you can program all the codes u want to hear

Trunking frequencies


Did you initialize your scanner? If you did, then you also deleted your trunking banks (1-9). These are the banks that store the channels that were inputted by you. The scanner will display "All channels locked out," when all of these banks are empty. You may have to put the frequencies in again. I suggest using win97. There is a 30day trial. This is the only program that I know of that will work with this scanner.

The pre-programmed channels should still be there. If you press and hold the scan button for a couple of seconds you should see the signal stalker running.

Good luck.

Edacs frequencies


Are you getting talkgroup ID's? If not, you're probably monitoring the EDACS system in conventional mode rather than trunking. When the scanner hears those beeps, it's supposed to go back to monitoring the control channel if you're in either trunking mode (search or scan). This also happens if the CC isn't coming in very well. If you're not in trunking mode, read the manual to find out more about programming and monitoring trunked systems. If you are in trunking mode and receiving ID's, the unit is probably malfunctioning.

mORE AND MORE POLICE AGENCIES ARE SWITCHING TO "DIGITAL TRUNKING". I CAN ONLY PICK UP PARTS OF MY LOCAL SHERIFFS STATIONS. RADIO SHACK HAS THE NEW dIGITAL TRUNKING SYSTEMS THEY COST ABOUT $500. I AM UP GRADING NOW. FOR TRUNKING ... WHEN YOU GET A ACTIVE CHANNELL KEEP HITTING THE RED TRUNK BUTTON TILL YOU SEE THE MOTOREOLA 5 NUMBEWR ID.THJEN HIT ENTER. I WANT THE NEW PROGRAMER THAT IS FAST ENOUGH TO FOLLOW DIGITAL HYPER-TRUNKING. ALL POLISE ARE GOING TO IT EVENTUALLY.
