Radio Shack Pro 97 - Talk Group Problem & All Channels Locked out_ Re-Posted

I currently am still having a problem with programming the Talk Group ID's
For a Motorola Type II System.

I have cleared all programing by turning the scanner off & then turning it back on . I hit "0" then "1" to complete this task.

When following the programing instructions and loading all the talk group ID's for my Public Safety Groups & I show them stored in the bank I want them in.I hit scan & the scanner shows all channels are still locked out.
However I have already used the Review my Locked Out Channels & it show no channels are still locked out.

Any help in this continued problem would be greatly be appreciated.

I look forward to hearing back from one of your Experts on this continued problem.

I can't figure out how to program my Radio Shack Pro-97 scanner!


If you can't program the unit using the instructions in the owner's manual, there's no way anyone can post a workable answer for you here. I suggest that you join a Yahoo users' group for the PRO-97. That way you can pose a problem to a group of users, plus get one-on-one assistance in programming your scanner.

I have a pro 97 scanner and need a pc cable to program it. where can i get a cable. or is there a cable built for a gre scanner that will also work with the pro 97. mike s. email mastokka@hickorytech.net


You need either the Radio Shack PC interface cable 20-047 or the GRECOM USB cable. Both are, unfortunately, out of production and not available through any outlet that I could find. You might want to check with Radio Shack stores in your area, though, as one or more of them might still have the cable in stock. Another possible source is the PRO-97 owners group on Yahoo.com.

You're either going to have to reset the channels through programming or you may be able to manually unlock each channel.

I can not get any sound out of my radio shack pro 97 scanner I turn the volume all the way up and hear a light uzzin sound I have it on the weather channel and no sounds my scanner saids all channels...


Nothing's wrong. All of your frequencies have been deleted (pre-programmed PLUS anything you entered yourself).
You'll need to re-enter all of the frequencies to get it working again.

All channels locked out on pro-97 model


You've somehow "initialized" it meaning, all of your frequencies have been deleted. You'll have to reprogram all of them.
Initializing is good if you want to wipe out everything & start fresh. It's not good when it happens "accidentally". It's happened to me twice & it's frustrating !!

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.
