Question about Radio Shack Pro-97 Handheld Scanner

Distorted The voices on my scanner are so distorted that you can't even understand what is being said. I've tried other frequencies but they're all that way.

Are you using batteries or an AC/DC adapter? The only time I've seen the voices get distorted on my Pro 97 was when the batteries were about to die. If you're using an AC/DC adapter in some way to power yours, maybe there is something electronically wrong with your Pro 97. This is not intended to get you to throw it away.

They speakers, when they hit hard they make this odd... smacking sound.. Also on just like.. eminem songs and some rock songs that I listen to whenever the subs hit the vocals get distorted, but when I...


Well it sounds like you need a mono block amplifier for the subwoofers. Subwoofers are ment for low frequency. If you try to run regular audio through the subwoofer the sound will become distorted at a high volume. If you have a crossover on the amplifier try putting it on LP. Also do not exceed the RMX rateing on the subwoofer because if you do they will also distort. If you try adding the mono block on to it and it is still doing it you may also be running to much power to the subwoofers.

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


Hi.

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 ??

I want to unblock my uniden bct7 scanner, Can anybody tell me how


The BCT-7 covers popular frequency bands, skipping things like television signals, non-voice (data) bands, and banned (cellular) bands. It cannot be modified to receive other frequencies. Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

Uniden BC80XLT Radio Scanner distorted


It may very well be an interference problem. While the scanner may not have moved, there are many items around it that may be the source of interference. Think back to the time when the interference started. Did you install something new around that time frame? Perhaps a new computer, a new monitor, some new CFL light bulbs? Any of these items can cause interference. The other possibility is that the interference is coming from outside your home or office. While these sources may not be able to be corrected, you can do a few things to help reduce the effects of the intererence:
1. Move the scanner to a new location. Radio waves are tricky little things. You may be able to find a location where the interference is weaker, but your intended signal is still adequate.
2. Try moving the antenna. If using the rubber antenna that came with the scanner, try laying the scanner flat instead of upright.

The other thing you may want to do is check the frequency with another scanner. There is always the remote possibility that the problem is with the transmitter, and not with your scanner at all.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Distorted voices


if it sounds garbled it may be due to digital communication. most scanners cannot recieve the digital communication. that is why you hear a garbled inaudible sound from it.

Voice not working properly on garmin nuvi 660 - very disdorted


i have been told that voice to street is not as clear as the voice just stating turns. If it really bothers you then try voice to turn. I cant remember the setting but it should work well for you.

Alpine pdx 1.1000 amp


These subs are dual voice coil I'm sure...make sure they are putting a 2 ohm load on the amp total, and also set your gain and frequency setting right. Set the frequency around 85 or 90, make sure the lo pass filter is on. Turn the gain ALL the way down and turn your stereo to the point right before your speakers distort....then slowly increase the gain until the subs are playing at full volume. This should not even be close to all the way up, and the subs should sound accurate and bold. Turning them past this point will cause distortion, in which case you should back off the gain a bit. Distortion causes power to cycle through the amp very rapidly and can cause blown subs and blown fuses. If you do not know how to wire both subs for a combined load of 2 ohms, please let me know what type of subs you have.
