Question about Radio Shack Pro-82 Scanner

1 Answer

Last night was working fine - as it was on I noticed that the scanner was just stuck on one channel - I hit scan ( I have several channels programmed) It wouldnt scan. Then when I turned the squelch knob I notice there was no squelch. I have not dropped or otherwise damaged this scanner. It is around 8 yrs old. I surmise the squelch is the reason it wont scan.....HELP FAST !! BAD TORNADO NIGHT AHEAD !!!

Hopefully Resetting or Initializing the scanner will clear the problem and get it working again for you. Instructions for these procedures are on page 38 and 39 of the scanner operating manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download and print it, at no cost, here:

SCANNER PRO 97 WAS TRYING TO PROGRAM AND NOM WHEN I HIT SCAN IT SHOWS AII CHANNELS LOCKED OUT.


You may have a priority channel selected if it refuses to scan.i believe most scanners will reset if you remove batteries for a period.some cellular channels are blocked in the USA so if it's not a cellular frequency and you are not in a country with restrictions then you really need to understand how to input a frequency ....store it... Remember to adjust squelch as the squelch when turned fully on will not usually output any sound and lock scan if it's turned off in most cases.

Where can I find a free owners manual for a Uniden Bearcat BC 177 XLT EMS fire police scanner radio


All these cat scanners work pretty mich the same
There are several ways. First, turn the scanner on and adjust the squelch so that it is quite. Then press the manual button to flip through the 16 channels. Stop on the channel you want to program. Then, type in the frequency followed by the "E" key on the lower right of the keypad. Hit the manual button to move to the next channel and repeat the process above.

You can also "scan" for a frequency. Here is how: Use the manual button to get to one of the channels. Now type in "120.0 followed by pressing the "limit" button. Now type in "125.0" and press the "limit" button again. Now press the "scan" button. The scanner will now search all frequencies between 120.0 and 125.0 on that channel and will pause and listen should a transmission happen. You can do this "limit" scan for any frequency range that the scanner is capable of receiving. Once you hear a transmission, you can press the "hold" button to stay on that received frequency. Pressing the "E" button will lock that frequency into that channel.

Scanner stuck on one channel and won't allow me to enter new freq


Push the "L/O" lockout button and it will lockout that channel.
When you press "Scan" you have to have at least one of the banks scanning, so press 1, 2, 3,....9, 0 whatever bank you have channels programmed in order to automatically scan. You should be able to press "Manual" to see each channel individually.

Have uniden 396T. Control channel now on one system does not work


Have you put in more than one control channel for your area.

I always put as many of the red or blue Control channels in my area. I counted 23 Control Channels for the whole system. I would put everyone in if it were me.

I set the system up as "Control Channel Only".

In a metroploitan area you should be able to pick up another control channel on the system.

I use the Arc396Pro Software ato program my scanner. (available at ScannerMaster) I know in the Pro version you can download the information directly into your scanner. You can try this to be sure your settings are going in correctly.

I have a radio shack pro 96 digital trucking scanner.the other day we finally put up my outside antenna for it.it worked fine all through xmas and new years.the other day turned it on and it would not pick...


The very part of your scanner that makes it a scanner is inop. YOU can find it but IT won't scan. Back to radio shack for warranty before they change their mind.
