Why won't it stop on scans, but will work on manual entry?


Check to be sure keys are not locked out. Manually select channel 1. Key in the lowest frequency you wish to scan and press ENTER. Manually select channel 2. Key in the next higher frequency you wish to scan and press ENTER. Repeat this routine for all remaining channels. Enable scanning and you should be in business. Don't forget to lock out keys when you are finished.

I need to reprogram my Realistic Pro-2023 police scanner. I do not have my local police codes nor do I know how to reprogram it. Help.


PROGRAMMING YOUR SCANNER

For a a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com


1. Turn on your scanner by turning VOLUME clockwise.

2. Press [MANUAL], enter the channel number you want to program, then
press [MANUAL] and [PROGRAM]. The channel number flashes to indicate
you are programming the channel.

3. Enter a frequency.

4. Press [ENTER] to store the frequency. If you make a mistake in Step
3, ERROR appears on the display. Proceed again from Step 3.

5. If you want your scanner to pause after each transmission before
scanning to the next channel, press [DELAY] so that DELAY appears in
the display. See "Using the Delay Feature."

6. To program more channels, repeat Steps 2-4. If you want to program
the next channel in sequence, simply press [PROGRAM] and repeat Steps
3 - 4.

SETTING THE VOLUME AND SQUELCH CONTROLS

Use the SQUELCH control to decrease your scanner's sensitivity to weak
signals. This allows the scanner to receive only the strongest
transmissions.

1. Turn the SQUELCH and VOLUME controls fully counterclockwise.

2. Turn the VOLUME control clockwise until you hear a hissing sound.

3. Slowly turn the SQUELCH control clockwise until the hissing sound
stops.

SCANNING THE CHANNELS

To begin scanning the channels, press [SCAN]. Your scanner scans through
all the channels except the ones you have locked out. Be sure to read the
following sections to get the full benefit from your scanner's special
features.

USING THE DELAY FEATURE

Many agencies use a two-way radio system that might have a 2 second silence
(or more) between a query and a reply. To keep from missing a reply,
program a delay on the channels you identify as operating this way.

To program a delay, select the channel and press [DELAY] so that DELAY
appears on the display. Now when your scanner pauses at an active channel
when scanning, it waits for 2 seconds after the completion of each
transmission on that channel before it resumes scanning.

If you do not want your scanner to pause, select the channel and be sure
that DELAY is not on the display. If DELAY appears on the display, press
[DELAY] to turn it off for that channel.

LOCKING OUT CHANNELS

You can make your scanner scan more efficiently by locking out channels
that you have not programmed. Manually select the channel and press [LOCK
OUT] so that LOCK OUT apperas on the display. This is also handy for
locking out channels that have a continuous transmission. You can still
manually select locked-out channels for listening.

To unlock a channel you have locked, manually select the channel and press
[LOCK OUT] so that LOCK OUT disappears from the display.

NOTE: You cannot lock out Channel 1.

USING THE PRIORITY FEATURE

Channel 1 is designated as your scanner's priority channel. You can turn
on the priority feature so that you do not miss transmissions on Channel 1,
even if you are monitoring another channel.

Press [PRIORITY] so that PRIORITY appears on the display. Now your scanner
checks Channel 1 every 2 seconds, and stays on the channel if there is any
activity.

MANUALLY SELECTING A CHANNEL

You can continuously monitor a specific channel without scanning. This is
useful if you hear an emergency broadcast on a channel and do not want to
miss any details-even though there might be periods of silence-or if you
want to monitor a specific channel.

Follow these steps to manually select a channel.

1. Press MANUAL.

2. Enter the channel number.

3. Press MANUAL again.

Or, if your scanner is scanning and stops at the desired channel, press
MANUAL one time. (Pressing MANUAL additional times causes your scanner
to step through the channels.)

LISTENING TO THE WEATHER BAND

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has allocated several channels
for use by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). We
have preprogrammed your scanner with all of the frequencies available to
NOAA. To hear your local forecast and regional weather information, simply
press [WX]. Your scanner begins scanning through the weather band, and WX
SEARCH appears on the display.

Your scanner should stop within a few seconds, and you hear the local
weather broadcast. If the broadcast is weak, you can press [WX] again
to scan through the rest of the weather band.

How do you program a bearcat bc55xlrt scanner with a code?


There are no codes, only frequencies. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

To program your BC55XLT:

Turn on radio.

It will be in scan mode. Press Manual (orange button) to stop scanning.
Press Manual button to step through channels to get to the one you want.
(Or press channel number and then manual button)

If "LockOut" is displayed it means this channel isn't being "Scanned."
You will want to lock out constant "broadcast" services such as NOAA or airport weather. Pressing Lockout will toggle the feature on and off.

Select a channel to program. Use the keypad to enter frequency. Use "E" for Enter
key. If the radio displays an E this means Error. Usually, the
frequency you typed in is outside of the capabilities of the scanner.

Once you hit the E you will immediately start hearing anything that's
out there on the frequency you entered.

Push the "Review" button and the scanner will display the frequency
that is programmed for the channel. A "-" will be displayed for the
decimal point.

I get all channels locked out. How do I unlock the channels.


You are pressing the "scan" button in the upper left hand position and getting all channels locked out? Correct?
If you haven't programmed any frequencies the channels will stay locked out. Get your local frequencies by doing a search for police scanner frequencies. Once you have gotten the information for your area press the "PGM" button on the lower right hand side of the key pad. Input your 1st frequency ###.#### then press "ENTER". Press "PGM"key again and enter your 2nd frequency then "ENTER" again. Repeat as often as you wish to enter more frequencies.
When you are done, (you can stop any time) press the "SCAN" button in the upper left hand position and you are in business. You are supposed to be able to choose which memory position you wish to use but I haven't tried to figure that one out.
If you need the manual for the radio go to radioshack site and do a search for PRO95 and it will come up in PDF format.
Hope this helps. I have owned the pro 95 for maybe 6 or 7 years and after doing a little programming yesterday the thing is much more to my liking. It scanns quicker and scans the channels I wish to listen to.

PEUGEOT 405 RADIO/CASSETTE MODEL NO.PU9833A


Radio codes do not come for free on the internet. You can try using 0854, it is a clarion factory code. If it does not work do not insist, some radio locks up after third try, then you have to disonnect battery.

This website sells the codes.

Alternatively post yopur serial number on this forum and request the code.

Here are instructions on how to enter the code
