Question about Radio Shack Pro-94 Scanner

1 Answer

Scanning Hello! My Radio Shack Pro-94 scanner scans all the frequencies in all 4 banks but I am unable to hear anyone talk! I entered all the frequencies in last night around 8pm. It is now 3pm the next day. It has been on 24-7 and so far I have heard NOTHING! What is the problem?!

The problem could be your location, altitude, antenna, or wrong frequencies for your area. Here's a link to Radio Reference where you can check their database for active frequencies in your area.

My scanner will only scan bank 1 and 2


Hello,
When your scanner is scanning normally (in only banks 1 and 2 at this point) just hit the number for the banks you want to scan. To remove a bank push that number again. Make sure it the scanner is actually scanning when you do this.
Regards, Tony

Hi - I don't know any frequencies to enter on my PRO-94. Is there a way that I can just scan all local channels?


You can run service searches as described in your manual to locate active frequencies, but those won't help with trunked systems. You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, by visiting:

800 MHz frequency Mode problem


You have to program it TRUNKING mode when you enter the control channel frequencies. It is decoding okay as the MO shows motorola control channel and +DG means digital decoded and an OPEN group. You need to press the 'trunk' button everytime a talkgroup comes up that you want it to remember for future 'closed' group (-DG) talk groups. I suggest you go to 'RadioReference DOT com" and there are many forums there for your radio, as well as one or two YAHOO GROUPS specifically for your scanner. 73's

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.

Scanning Freq


According to the manual the Pro 94 should cover that frequency.
Please note, certain frequencies are blocked in some countries. I see no reason why 217.031 should fall into this category although the closest may be 217.030 which should be close enough

Take a look at the manual >HERE< which should help you to program your scanner.

Best wishes...:-)

Scanner not working


Did you use a software program or have radio shack program the scanner for you? If so, check to make sure the banks were selected in the software to be enabled. I assume the your scanner shows 0123****** Now to manually select banks, simply press the number for the selected bank to both select and de-select as warrented. When you press 4, bank 4 will now be scanned. Also, should you press 1, bank 1 will not be scanned.

162.550 NOAA weather frequency


If your still having the problem, it could be that the transmitter for that freq lost some of it's power, so your scanner cannot pick up a clear signal. If everything else is working ok, that's my guess. Hope this helps,,, Mechanic
