Radio Shack Pro Scanner

Have had the scanner two years. Now, it is all static. Tried to replace antenna and new batteries. I only listen to one channel, local police. Nothing works and RadioShack cannot figure it out.

I know that if you turn your scanner off over a few days you can loose your frequency # or it will lock the channels out. if they or l/o just unlock then. I also know that all police and ect. went digital, you would to have a scanner that is digital. When they changed to digital some for the frequency # have changed. I had to get the new ones and put them in.

Whenever i turn on my pro-82 scanner all i get is static and have tried squelch and reset


Check your antenna connections, if the connections are good then try a different antenna. Most likely that is the problem if it's the scanner. If your trying to scan Public Safety Frequencies you may be running into a situation where they have gone Digital and your scanner is Analog or they may have encrypted their frequency or control channels so the scanners won't work.

I have broken the six AA batteries holder for my Radio Shack PRO-60 scanner, where can I buy a replacement?


Any Radio Shack store should be able to order one for you Before you go that route though, check eBay. The battery holders come in several shapes, but you might find one that will work for you - at a bargain price.

Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

I NEED TO PURCHASE CIRCUIT BOARD #GE-O1D-5730 FOR RADIOSHACK PR0-82 SCANNER. CAN'T GET ANY HELP FROM ANYONE. SERIAL #C220076 ON SCANNER CAT# 28-315. BATTERIES LEAKED AND RUINED THE BOARD. PLEASE ADVISE...


Your scanner is at least 8 years old, so the board is out of production. If Radio Shack can't order it you're just not going to find it. If you're really interested in keeping a scanner of this age, you might want to check eBay. They currently have two PRO-82's listed . . .

Need an antennea that is for pro 508 scanner


The screw-in antenna for your scanner is Radio Shack Catalog number 10538353. You should be able to purchase one, or order one, from your local Radio Shack. Also check eBay - but make sure that it's the correct antenna for you scanner. Not all screw-in antennas have the same thread size. Check prices closely. Considering the age and limited capability of your scanner, you might be better off purchasing a new or used scanner rather than an antenna for the 508.

Zero Activity


first to check if your scanner receives try the weather station,it that works then check that your squelch control is not set too low, turn it up till the static from a channel that is not transmitting stops.Also check the antenna ,remove it and then put it back on.If none of this works try removeing the batteries for a few minutes and then putting them back in, or reset your scanner according to the instuctions in the users manual.
