Hi george - You can get the manual in sections that will tell you what you need to know plus you'll have it for reference. It's the way Radio Shack posts them. It's at this link:

http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/16429.htm

Or you can go to this site and send an email and they will email you the manual:

If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

    The frequency you enter actually determines whether it is UHF or VHF. Check the Guide to Scanning from the first link.

Good Evening Pam

Radio shack has a listing of Scanner resources here:
Radio Shack Realistic Scanner Manuals The materials for the Pro 58 are here
http://support.radioshack.com/support_electronics/8570.htm and gives access to specs, parts list, features, and a guide to scanning. It's very mid-20th century in appearance, including using type-writer style fonts.

Hoping this helps!

Realistic patrolman pro16A radio scanner, do not know how to program freq, this scanner does not have crystals, does anyone know how or have a manual??


I have checked several sources, and they all show that the PRO-16A is a 16-channel VHF/UHF CRYSTAL scanner. Remove the bottom cover and you should see the crystal sockets.

This is not my product I have a Rca four band scanner (old) model # 16S400 need a manual for programming freq


The RCA 16S400 is not a programmable scanner. Rather, it's an old (70's) crystal-based scanner that requires one crystal for each frequency. It covers the VHF-low, VHF-high, and UHF bands, and utilizes Regency type crystals. You can do a Google or Yahoo search for the crystals, but eBay is probably the best, and lowest priced source.

Need a manual to program radio freq for a RCA four band veractor tuned scanner, this is not a gps but a radio scanner model # 16S400


Please excuse me if I've already answered your question -- it sounds familiar. The RCA 16S400 is a 70's-vintage crystal based scanner that covers the VHF-Low, VHF-High, and UHF bands using frequency-specific crystals. It is not programmable, but rather requires one crystal for each frequency to be scanned/tuned. It uses Regency-type crystals which can usually be found on eBay at reasonable prices.

Hi my pro 96 scanner recieves nearby stations poorly


If you're talking about a digital trunked system with multiple towers or a simulcast system, then 'welcome to the club'. I have the same problem, but that only applies to digital trunked multisite P25 9600 baud systems. Everything else should be clear. What band are you trying to listen to: VHF Lo, VHF Hi, UHF, 800MHz, analog or digital? RS's more expensive antenna will give you better reception on VHF over the 'stock' rubber antenna that they give you. Let me know what you're trying to hear, and I can help more on this issue. Okay?

Unfortuantly the pro-82 is not a trunked scanner, it's only a vhf/uhf scanner and cannot pickup trunked systems. You need to replace it with atleast a pro-95 to pick up trunked systems. If you need your manual for the pro-82 follow this link.

Do you have a list of correct freq's for your area?
Make sure you have the scanner set on the correct mode (am/fm/ct/dc) for the freq's you have programmed. Each area of the country have their own individual freq. so their not stepping on each others transmission.
