Pro-95 dual-trunk scanner

Hi: How can I eliminate the annoying beep-beep-beep sounds, that follows frequencies. Something is not programmed right. It is not scanning properly, because it stops on certain frequencies. I'm sick of locking out my primary channel which I need for police/fire. Please help ASAP Gloria Manchester, NH e-mail is [email protected]

I Havel a pro-95 scanner and I have frequencies programmed into banks 1 thru 6 and the scanner isn't scanning banks 2 thru 6

Make sure the banks are enabled and the frequencies in the banks aren't locked out. If you are scanning trunked systems make sure the control channels are set up properly.

Keep in mind you cannot scan digital systems with this scanner, only analog systems and frequencies.

I have a pro 95 dual trunk scanner & it says all

  • Hi, I can help.

  • You probably have all frequencies in that bank locked out and all other banks locket out as well so you are seeing "All Ranges Locked Out."

  • You should be able to just push the number of the bank you want to have active again and activate it. If you have locked out some frequencies just press "MAN" for manual and scroll up and down through all the frequencies and hit "L/O" and the L/O will change to l/o (lower case letters) indicating the frequency is no longer locked. This has to be done manually for every frequency as there is no "master unlock" function on this scanner.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Cannot recieve new Motorla trunking Feq after system upgrade on my Pro 95 scanner. What can I do?? Thanks, Ron


They probably went into a digital trunking system. Your Pro-95 will only handle Edacs, Type I and II standard trunking.

Or they changed the trunking voice frequencies and the data (control channel) frequency.

Which system are you trying to listen to? Which city area ??

How do I program it for triple truncking?

There is no such thing as "dual trunking" or "triple trunking." Such terms are used by manufacturers to indicate the number of trunking systems that a scanner is capable of monitoring. The PRO-95 is designated as a Dual Trunk-Tracking scanner because it is capable of monitoring both Motorola and EDACS systems. Programming a trunking system in to a scanner is a detailed process that requires a bit of research.

For details on active trunking systems in your area, and a lot of other useful scanning information, visit:

Once you have the system information you can follow the programming steps outlined in your scanner's operating instructions. If you don't already have the manual, you can download and print it here:

Want to no how to program scanner to pick up phone calls. radioshack-pro/95 dual-trunking.

Sorry, but it can't be done, for at least two reasons. Cellular bands are out of the tuning range of your scanner, and it cannot be modified to receive the cellular frequencies. Virtually all cellular signals are now digital, and the PRO-95 is an analog-only scanner.

I have had my pro-95 for 8 years with no the trunking will not work...please advise

Your scanner may have had a logic "hiccup" for any one of many reasons, and a simple RESET may restore the trunking function.

RESET (will not wipe out frequencies or other programmed data):

- Turn the scanner OFF, and then then ON again.

- Insert a pointed object (paper clip, pen point, etc.) into the RESET opening on the side of the scanner, then gently press and release the RESET button inside the opening.

If the RESET doesn't solve the problem, you may need to INITIALIZ the scanner.

INITIALIZE (this action WILL delete all programmed data)
Welcome To Dual Trunking appears.

- Press 0 then 1 while Welcome to Dual Trunking is displayed. Initializing Please Wait appears for about 2 seconds.

Do not turn off the scanner until the initializing process is complete. When complete M000 will appear on the top line of the display, and Bank 0 Ch 0 will appear on the bottom line.

Hopefully one of these steps will restore the trunking. If not, the scanner may need professional help.

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:

Pro-95 dual trunktracking handheld scanner

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?

To stop beeping sounds

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
