Question about Radio Shack Pro-2052 Scanner

1 Answer

Will not scan properly

I have attempted to program channels and frequencies into my radio shack 2052 scanner. It will scan a couple of the stations but will not scan the others nor will it play the others even on manual. I have followed the manuals instructions.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Question: What else do I need to do to get this inquiry going?

  • oneletter May 18, 2008

    I have already tried your suggestions. What I have discovered late yesterday is that the primary frequency that I was receiving law enforcement traffic on is listed as "temporary". I've been able to get the fire frequencies operating again and only the law enforcement is not working. Tomorrow I will contact our local county communications manager and see if the frequency I have been using has been discontinued and a new one substituted.
    Thank you for your assistance.

Hello

I suppose you are trying to scan the channels by hand, If I'm not mistaken this model can also be hooked up to the pc.

Manual pages 55 and forward are on scanning, I suppose you have been throught those.


I't must be a simple setting wrong somewhere.

    Have you tryed to reset the scanner and try programing a few frequencies again?


    You might need to reset the scanner
    if:

    • the scanner’s display locks up.

    • the scanner does not work properly
    after you connect power.

    • the scanner is dropped or subjected
    to a physical or electrical
    shock.


    Caution: This procedure clears all the information you have programmed into the scanner. Use this procedure only when you are sure your scanner is not working properly.


    To reset the scanner, turn it off. Then, while you hold down 2 and 9, turn on the scanner. CLEAr appears for about 5 seconds while the scanner resets.

    Caution: Do not turn off the scanner while it is resetting

HOW DO I ENTER FREQUENCIES AND SCAN.


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/

Trying to program it


First you'll need a list of frequencies to program. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

Once you have your freq list, power the scanner ON,and:

1. Press PGM. Then enter the channel number (1-200) where you want to store a frequency, then press PGM again.
2. Use the keys to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press ENT to store the frequency into the channel. 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.
4. To program the next channel in sequence, press PGM and
repeat Steps 2 and 3.

Operation
• To listen to a weak or distant station, turn SQUELCH counterclockwise. If reception is poor, turn SQUELCH clockwise to cut out weak transmissions.
• If SQUELCH is adjusted so you always hear a hissing sound, the scanner will not scan or search properly.

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.

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.
