Question about Radio Shack Pro-95 Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

To stop beeping sounds

Had my scanner program but I keep having beeping sounds when frequencies comes in, and it is very annoying. How can I eliminate those irritating beeps, without locking out my police and fire frequencies. I didn't have that problem before. Took it to Radio Shack and they are not into scanners. Please help and thanks, Gloria

Good day Gloria, Here is a parts list, refrence part number 12392288 COVER ASSY BATTERY, you can go to your local Radioshack and they can order this. Tell them that it is an RSU order, ask for a manager if they don't know what your talking about. That is a special wharehoues that they have for parts. Newly hired associated usually don't have a clue that it exists. Or call 1800-843-7422(1-800-the-shac) to order, they may redirect your call to a local store. Follow this link for the manual, After skimming the manual my self I couldn't find much on the beep issue. It is possible that that beep is coming from the transmission you are recieving, does it that on all frequency's, or just certain ones? Keep in mind that that could also be a weatherband alert tone. I'm not sure, well I hope this helps in someways, If all else fails read pg 83 of the manual to reset the unit. Good Luck

Configuring Your Scanner

Preprogrammed Frequencies

Your scanner includes 153 preprogrammed
frequencies, which you can load into Channels
1 to 153. For a list of these frequencies, see
"Preprogrammed Frequency List" on page 23.
To load the pregprogrammed frequencies:
1. Turn off the scanner and then turn it on again.
2. While WELCOME message appears, press PGM.
3. Load -Fr- appears, then YES--Ent and No --
CLEAr appear alternately.
4. Press ENT to load frequencies or CLEAR to

Programming Channels

If you do not have a list of frequencies in your area,
refer to
1. Press PGM. PGM appears.
2. Enter the channel number (1-200) where you
want to store a frequency, then press PGM again.
3. Use the number keys and • to enter the frequency
(including the decimal point), then press ENT.
4. To program the next channel in sequence, press
PGM and repeat Step 3. To program a specific
channel repeat Steps 2 and 3..
• Your scanner automatically rounds down to
the closest valid frequency. For example, if
you enter 151.473, your scanner rounds it to
• If Error appears and the scanner beeps three
times when you press ENT, start again from
Step 2.
• If the frequency is already stored in another
channel, the scanner beeps three times and
displays -dUPL- (duplicate) and the lowest
channel number where the frequency is already
stored. Press TUNE/CLEAR to cancel. Press
ENT if you still want to store the frequency.

No transmissions on Uniden Bearcat BC80XLT

Are you sure the frequencys have not changed in your area? They changed in mine recently. uou can do a search about your area freqs. Make sure antenna is in all the way, easy things, etc. here is a link to the manual if you need it.

I cannot figure out how to program my scanner to the fire frequency.

To program any known frequency into your BC72XLT, power the scanner ON, and then:

1. Press Hold. Then enter the channel number where you want to store a frequency, then press Func and Pgm. The channel number appears.
2. Use the number keys and to enter the frequency (including the decimal point) you want to store.
3. Press E to store the frequency into the channel.

• If you entered an invalid frequency in Step 2, Error appears and the scanner beeps three times. Enter a valid frequency.
• The scanner automatically rounds the entered number to the nearest valid frequency. For example, if you enter 151.473 (MHz), your scanner accepts it as 151.475.
• When you enter a frequency into a channel, the scanner automatically turns on the delay function and DLY appears. When delay is turned on, the scanner automatically pauses scanning 2 seconds after the end of a transmission before scanning proceeds to the next channel. To turn the function off or on, press Func + Dly.
• If you enter a frequency that has already been entered elsewhere, the scanner sounds an error tone and displays the channel that was duplicated. If you entered the frequency by mistake, press then enter the correct frequency. To enter the frequency anyway, press E to

4. To program the next channel in sequence, press E then repeat Steps 2 and 3.

Need the full manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning info, visit:



How do you set up the scanner to scan police and ems channels

First you'll need a list of frequencies to program. For a comprehensive database of active frequencies in your area, visit:

Once you've selected your frequencies, power the scanner ON and

1. Press E/PGM to enter the program mode (the scanner turns on the
PGM icon).

2. If the current channel is not the one you want to program, enter the
memory number then press HOLD.

3. Enter the frequency including the decimal point, then press E/PGM.

4. To program the next memory, press  or  and repeat step 3. To
program a different memory, repeat from step 2.

5. To exit program mode, press HOLD or SCAN or change the scanner’s mode.

• Any frequency you program replaces the previous memory contents.
• If you enter a frequency you have already stored in a different
memory in Step 3, the scanner beeps and displays the channel
where you have previously stored the frequency. If you want to store
the frequency anyway, press E/PGM a second time in Step 3.
• To clear the contents of a memory, enter “0” in Step 3.
• Channels you program are automatically unlocked (see
“Locking/Unlocking Memories) and have Delay turned on (See
“Setting Channel Delay”).

Programming error BCT8 Uniden

Back to answer my own question.
I just found the problem. If you try to program one of these scanners (Uniden BCT8) and you keep getting a "pr9-loc" message every time you try to enter a frequency and "M-LOCK" is showing in the upper right corner of the display press and hold the M-Lock (E) key until it beeps twice and "M-LOCK" disappears from the display. You're now set to program.

Edacs frequencies

Are you getting talkgroup ID's? If not, you're probably monitoring the EDACS system in conventional mode rather than trunking. When the scanner hears those beeps, it's supposed to go back to monitoring the control channel if you're in either trunking mode (search or scan). This also happens if the CC isn't coming in very well. If you're not in trunking mode, read the manual to find out more about programming and monitoring trunked systems. If you are in trunking mode and receiving ID's, the unit is probably malfunctioning.

Firstly make sure the "squelch" is set as per the manual (link below) page 26. If that fails I suggest initializing the scanner to factory defaults as below:

the beep are known as "over beeps", they are generated at the end of a transmission by the transmitting raido to signal that the user has taken his or her finger off the transmit button and has ended transmission, like how they used to say "over". as for the hissing, have you tried adjusting the squelch?
