How so i pick station on my Radio Shack police scanner?


I have never used a scanner of that type but I have seen them in use and know the principle of operation.

If you are certain the radio is working and have checked with the instruction manual that you are operating it the correct way with any squelch control turned down and the volume turned up there should be a loud hissing from the speaker indicating the radio is ready to receive as soon as it is either tuned to the specific frequency of a station by direct entry or by scanning one or more bands of frequencies.

If there is no hissing noise it is possible the audio output is faulty or the aerial is not connected or the radio is otherwise faulty.

If the hissing noise is present and powerful and still nothing is being received it is possible there is nothing to receive or a more powerful aerial is needed.
It is worth noting many scanners available in the past tended to scan bands of frequencies in the upper and lower vhf bands where the aircraft, marine and emergency services radios operated. Since those days many of those services have moved their communications into the UHF bands leaving the vhf bands relatively empty.

Pioneer-vsx-9500s radio won't work with cable


You cannot plug cable from the wall into a receiver, you will blow the tuner card.  Use the supplied antenna or go to radio shack and ask them for an fm antenna.

NOTE
The initial mode is DX SEEK.

The ST indicator or STEREO indicator appears on the

Most times it goes like this:

find your station by manually searching the frequency. When found, press the memory button and in your display the word memory will flash. than press the number you want it stored under and hold it pressed untill the flashing stops.

Other option:
once station is selected, press the preset number and hold it untill you hear a beep or, if the number flashes on your display, it stops flashing.
often you have the possibility to store aprx 10 presets on 1 band, by seleting the band you get new presets for each band, geeting in total 40 preset possibilities.

Let me know if this solved your problem.

Dx-88 HL


You'll need to take it to a repair shop. Because it transmits its under FCC rules so a certified tech needs to work on it.

Or take it back to where you got it and have them correct the problem.

Pro-97 scanner recieving problem


try going to a urban area and scanning the NOAA band. if that works your programming is wrong and there is nothing wrong with your AM/FM base band. also the BNC antenna connector on the inside is notorious for breaking away from the board, nothing a little solder cant handle. Also make sure your local freq's are not Digital
