Look for a button called mode and press that, it should switch it to fm narrow (communications) or fm wide ( fm broadcast stations) or am

RECEIVED RF ON AIRCRAFT BAND BUT NO SOUND


Check for mode or modulation type setting. Aircraft use AM modulation, most other radio bands will use FM.

Can the GRECOM PSR255. be used to scan for aircraft /airband frequencies


Your radio is not capable of recieving air band frequencies. It will only receive 4 bands consisting of: 26 - 54 MHz; 68 - 88 MHz; 137 - 174 MHz and 380 - 512 Mhz.

The VHF airband uses the frequencies between 108 (just above commercial FM radio) and 137 MHZ (just below 2 meter Ham radio). Amplitude Modulation ("AM") is the mode that transmissions are made. The lowest 10 MHz of the band, from 108-117.95 MHz, is split into 200 narrow-band channels of 50 kHz. These are reserved for navigational aids such as VOR beacons, and precision approach systems such as ILS localizers

Cant get any channels to pick up


I recommend that you first scan the weather band to make sure that the scanner is working properly. You should be able to pick up one of the NOAA broadcast frequencies just about anywhere in the USA. No reception? Your scanner probably needs professional repair. If you receive weather broadcasts, make sure that you have active frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. You can find a comprehensive database of active frequencies, and a lot of other useful scanning information by visiting:

President HR-2510 will not transmit or recieve


Hi Darrel,

Since you didn't say if you have ever used this radio successfully before, I have to assume it is "new to you" and that you have never seen it work or used one like it before. Start with a few basic settings below:

Turn Squelch to minimum.
Set RF Gain (if present) to maximum
Set Mode to AM or FM
Set volume to 1/3 up
Connect to 50 ohm dummy load.

Turn power on. Hopefully you hear static. If not, try SSB or FM. Still nothing? Try connecting to an external speaker.

Chnage back to AM or FM mode. Key mic check & for transmit indicator. If none, change mic or manually short the PTT contacts in the mic or at the radio to see if it can be made to xmit.

If no xmit - insert SWR meter between xmitter and dummy load. Try to xmit on AM or FM again while watching SWR forward power, if none indicated, xmitter is probably defective.

Replacing parts in a xmitter is not recommended. You'll need an FCC license and a fair amount of expensive test equipment to test repairs, set power levels and deviation and perform an alignment to be sure you aren't causing interference on other frequencies and bands.

You'd be better off bringing it to a radio repair shop for repairs and an alignment.

My car radio works on FM but not on AM


The Am tuner module may be faulty and needs replacing. It would need to be looked at by a radion technician

A blank spot in reception on my 340 while a signal is heard


First thing I would check is to see if you have the "Priority" Function set on. If it is on a PRI would be illuminated in the display. When this is on the scanner will pause and check you "priority" Channel every 2 seconds, even when it is stopped on a transmission. Turn off the Priority by pressing the PRI button while it is scanning. Se if theis helps,

Realistic pro 2020 scanner


The Realistic PRO-2052 is an old (vintage) scanner receiver with fixed AM and FM modes on the bands it cover, as specified by the U.S. band allocation. The PRO-2020 covers only the VHF and UHF frequencies and modes AM and FM is not user selectable. Frequencies can be programmed into any of the 20 memory channels

U.S. Coverage: (varies from state to state and other countries. We don't use 30-50 Mhz here in the Philippines for 2 way mobile communications, except for cordless phones)

30-50 Mhz Lower VHF at FM narrowband only (covers mobile, emergencies, businesses, etc. and
cordless phones)
108-136 Mhz Aircraft band at AM narrowband only
138-174 Mhz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (2 meter band)
410-512 MHz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (70 cm band)

If you're trying to select AM or FM for a specified frequency, I'm afraid you can't do that as it is not selectable.

If you are trying to program AM Broadcast frequencies (mediumwave (MW) or FM Broadcast frequencies (FM radio stations), those were not covered by your PRO-2020's microprocessor. Even if you modify your scanner to receive those bands, you will not hear radio transmission properly since the receiver do not decode FM wideband, which is the standard mode for FM broadcast and Television band.

Pro-97 scanner recieving problem


try going to a urban area and scanning the NOAA band. if that works your programming is wrong and there is nothing wrong with your AM/FM base band. also the BNC antenna connector on the inside is notorious for breaking away from the board, nothing a little solder cant handle. Also make sure your local freq's are not Digital
