I, too, recently experienced the same difficulty with my two year old Pro97 scanner and was able to correct the problem. I removed the back cover and followed the center wire from the antennae connection to the top board that has the green resistor. With a magnifying glass, I looked at the connection, and as it makes the bend onto the top board, the connection was broken. I carefully soldered the connection from the green resistor to the wire from the center antennae connection. Everything works like new now. If your scanner is still under warranty, you may want to have it replaced.

How can i get my pro 164 to pick up digital broadcast frequencies


Sorry, but your PRO-164 is an analog-only scanner. There's nothing you can do to or with it to receive and listen to digital transmissions. If digital systems are in use in your area you'll need a digital (APCO-25) equipped scanner to listen in to them.

My scanner scans really slow and does not play any of the frequencies I have they worked before


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

GRE prs 295 channels locked out


This message usually means that the scanner has been cleared of all programming. Press the MANUAL key repeatedly to review channels. If 000.0000 shows, it means that you need to program the unit.

Not hearing certain frequincies


not all scanners will pick up the same, the hand held can't pick up frequency as far as the other one.

The signal received on scanners depends on a number of factors. The most important is the elevation of your location. If you are in a valley or have higher ground around you, this will screen signals from you and will reduce the number of stations you can hear.

Secondly, receivers vary enormously from one to another. The one you are using may simply be less sensitive.

Thirdly, the position and type of antenna is crucial. If you are using a directional antenna it will only pick up signal from the front and some from the back. An omni-directional antenna will allow you to pick up signals through 360 degrees. The antenna must also be as high as you can get it, especially if you are in a valley.

Some emergency services use repeaters which allow you to hear signals much further away. You may not be in range of a police repeater.
