Why wont my scanner model 60 channel pro-2029 scan


Hi Chad,

Do you have any frequencies programmed into your radio scanner?

If not, then that is why you're not receiving anything.

If on the other hand you do have frequencies programmed, are they the correct frequencies for your location?

Are the frequencies the Tx or Rx frequencies that you programmed, The Tx frequencies are the correct frequencies to program, as Rx is the mobile(usually) Tx frequencies, and unless you're within 5 miles of that mobile, you won't hear it, and you certainly won't hear the base transmissions, unless it's a high powered Simplex Frequency.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Cheers,
Peter

My pro 2018 scanner wont pick anything up where i live could there be something wrong with the scanner or do i need a better antenna i live in holmes county ohio


First try picking up the NOAA Weather broadcasts. They're transmitted on seven frequencies (162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525, 162.550) and at least one should be active in your area. To check reception, just press the WX key on your scanner. If you can pick up one or more of the frequencies, you'll know that the scanner is functioning properly. If not, your scanner is likely in need of repairs - a questionable move due to its age.

If the scanner is functioning (receiving the weather band), try a quick RESET. use a paperclip or pen point to press the recessed RESET button on the back of the scanner.

Make sure that you have programmed local active frequencies into the scanner. For a comprehensive database, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

After all of the above, if you are receiving weather but no local transmissions, I recommend that you try an external antenna.

If you need the manual for your scanner, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

I have this scanner and it will scan but it wont pick nothin up


A couple of things could be involved in your problem. You need to be listening to the frequencies that are being used in your area, but most of them will not be transmitting all of the time. Something you can try is if you live maybe about 10-20 miles from an airport and your scanner picks up aircraft frequencies you can look up the airport and find the automated beacon frequency and tune that in. The automated beacon should be transmitting 24/7 the weather conditions of the airport.

Another thing to check is weather you have the correct antenna attached to your scanner and that it is connected properly, the circuits in your scanner may need that antenna to be connected for the circuit to function properly.

If you are using the scanner to listen to your local Fire Dispatch there can be days when there isn't anything happening.

Another problem could be that your local Dispatch has moved over to a new Digital System and your scanner isn't equipped to recieve that System.

Cant seem to get it to pick up local frequencies


Can't really diagnose the problem without more information, but make sure that your antenna is connected properly and that you've programmed frequencies that are active in your area. For a quick function check, program the frequency 162.55, 162.4, 162.475, 162.425, 162.45, 162.5, 162.525, 161.65, 161.775, or 163.275 into your scanner. One of them, probably the first one, will be the primary weather frequency in your area. If the scanner picks up the weather broadcast you'll know that it's working.
