Question about Radio Shack Pro-2096 Base Scanner

1 Answer

Programming I can't import the complete frequency information from Radio Referefence using the Win 96 program. My radio is partially programmed already. Do I need to delete that programming? I have checked multiple sources but no one can provide me with a solution. I hope you can be of assistance. Thanks

No..you do not have to delete that programming. You can download the scanner using Win96 and then add or delete talkgroups and frequency data in Win96. Once this is complete, just upload it back to your scanner.

Word to the wise..you may want to save the results of your scanner download BEFORE modifying it. That way you can reload it if you make any mistakes while updating it.

Hi I have a vertex vx2100 radio and I need to know if I can use it as a police radio scanner


Yes. The Vertex VX2100 is a VHF radio which can be programmed to frequencies between 134-174 MHz. You would need to program in the frequencies you are wanting to scan as receive only (no transmit) into the 8 channels of the radio. You would need to acquire the frequencies you need, as well as programming equipment, or take the radio to a dealer for programming.

Best regards.

Error message when trying to enter frequency codes into the Radio Shack Pro-433... How do I enter the frequency codes I have into this scanner?


The error message almost always means that you have either entered a frequency that's out of your scanner's tuning range, or that you've neglected to enter a decimal point in the frequency. Check your operating manual to verify that the frequencies you're programming are within the unit's tuning range. If you don't already have the manual, you can download/print it here:

Would like to add a frequency to a Radio Shack


Absolutely. Just find either an empty channel or one that you want to delete - and program the new frequency. Doing so will not "mess up" any of the other programming.

Manual Programming of the Uniden BC95XLTB


1. The scanner automatically selects the band, you just program the frequency.
2. Your scanner does not have the traditional channel/frequency layout that you may be used to. Rather, it uses a system called DYNAMICALLY ALLOCATED CHANNEL MEMORY, which organizes frequencies into groups and systems, and enables the scanner to cover a wide variety of conventional and trunked radio systems.

The manual for the scanner goes into detail on the various systems and programming methods, and you can download/print the full manual here:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/BC246Tom.pdf

If it seems a bit overwhelming you might want to join a scanner group on line or in your area and draw on their experiences with the 246. You can also pick up a lot of useful information on the scanner, and access a comprehensive database of active frequencies/systems in your area by joining
www.RadioReference.com

To simplify the programming process, you can join the Radio Referenc group and purchase programming software from BuTel (http://www.butel.nl/) Their program for the BC246T will allow you to access the RadioReference database, select what you want to monitor, and import/program the information to your scanner.

Sorry, but the days of the Bearcat III with it's manually selectable bands and 8 "rocks" are gone, and today's complex radio systems require complicated scanners to keep up with them. As more and more areas upgrade to trunking systems, machines like the 246 will become the norm.
