Step 1:

CHECK OP (Check Operation) means your radio has not received any type of
SAME alert signal (include test or demo signals) for about 10 days.

Make sure the antenna is fully extended and the stored location is correct. See
"Programming Locations and SAME Codes" on page 9 for more information.


Step 2:

SOURCE: Radio scanner not receiving

The Realistic Pro-2025 relies on a quartz lock-loop signal synthesizer to receive signals, the synthesizer might of gone bad, chalk it up to old age. The Realistic PRO (Progressive Receiving Occilator) models are not around anymore, they went obsolete years ago. It's nice that you have one, they are worth some money on eBay. However I'm afraid it will cost you more money to fix the synthesizer than the radio is actually worth. It would be best to use your Radio Shack PRO-49. Realistic is a division of Radio Shack founded by Tandy Corp, basically you've been using a Radio Shack scanner the whole time. So if you have any complaints, take it up with them, you won't find Realistic anymore.

Hope this helps!

You can get the manual for your radio at Radioshack.com. Enter your model number in the search field at the top of the home page at that site. The fips codes for your area can be found at radioreference.com. They may even be included in your manual. I know they are listed in the manual for my pro 164 scanner.

What does "check OP" mean


This means that the weather radio has not received the weekly test signals for over a week. Turn the radio off and then back on. Next set the radio to announce the current weather (on my unit the button is marked Weather) and listen to the broadcast. If you do not hear the broadcast, move the radio until you do.

If you can't get a good signal, check the NOAA site for your coverage area to see if the local emergency alert broadcast towers are under repair. If needed try one of the other towers that cover your county. Sometimes you may get one location better than the others if you are near the edge of the county or are surrounded by hills. http://www.weather.gov/nwr/Maps/ has the maps by state and those link to the frequency of each tower that can be heard in a given county.

If the radio still fails to hear the test alerts, you may need an external antenna or a new radio. (Caution: the external antenna may hear a more distant tower and not give your local alert. We got the wrong state on one radio.)

Cindy Wells
(who has one weather radio on each side of the house set to two different towers. I live 2 miles from the state line. We had severe weather a few days ago and only the in-state tower broadcast the severe weather watch. The local television stations displayed different watches and warnings depending on which NOAA coverage area they checked.)

WHAT DOES "CHECK OP" MEAN? IT IS ON THE FACE OF MY


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with this question. You're receiving a message on your radio screen that says "Check Operation" and want to know how to clear it out. Whenever you see that "Check Operation" message on your radio, that means your radio has not received any activity (warnings or messages) for a number of days or weeks. This is something the radio does automatically. The message will clear off your screen when an alert has been announced or a Required Weekly Test (RWT) or Required Monthly Test (RMT) has been performed. I have a Midland WR-100 Weather Radio and it does the same thing. I get a Required Monthly Test on the last Wednesday of each month. After the test is completed, the message goes away. The National Weather Service conducts these test on Wednesdays starting at 10 a.m. Check your radio on Wednesday to see if you still see this message. The message should be gone around 6:00 PM or later. I hope this answers your question and thank you for choosing FixYa to answer your question. We hope you get the best user experience out this radio. Stay safe this Severe Weather Season, keep updated with your NOAA Weather Radio and have a good day, evening or night; whatever time of day you are reading this. Visit our website again the next time you need assistance with a problem or need a question answered.
