Question about Radio Shack Pro-2018 Scanner
First try picking up the NOAA Weather broadcasts. They're transmitted on seven frequencies (162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525, 162.550) and at least one should be active in your area. To check reception, just press the WX key on your scanner. If you can pick up one or more of the frequencies, you'll know that the scanner is functioning properly. If not, your scanner is likely in need of repairs - a questionable move due to its age.
If the scanner is functioning (receiving the weather band), try a quick RESET. use a paperclip or pen point to press the recessed RESET button on the back of the scanner.
Make sure that you have programmed local active frequencies into the scanner. For a comprehensive database, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:
After all of the above, if you are receiving weather but no local transmissions, I recommend that you try an external antenna.
