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 ??

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:

www.RadioReference.com

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:

Problem with PRO-2066 scanner not receiving local 800mhz Motorola trunk system II. It does trunk with the current data channels used (showing the ---- line) but I only hear transmissions on freqs ending...


It is difficult to explain in simple terms but I will try.
Google rebanding.
Some radios can have their firmware updated but I don't think your PRO 2066 can.
Channel numbers and frequencies preprogrammed into your scanner have changed over the past few years.
When a data signal says go to channel X that channel is now Y, but your scanner is still looking for X
Hope this helps

TUNING


no there are no adjustments, you need to check to make sure tha tthe pro-95 you have is compatible with the trunking system in your area, i have the same problem with my pro-97 problem is just the codec that they use is too new for one of my scanners and the only way to listen in is to have the radio scan all output channels that arent control channels or transmitting all time

Can I upgrade to recieve marks system.


If you mean the State of Ohio MARCS system, then you need a digital trunking scanner. The Radio Shack Pro-96 and PRO-2096 will work as will the new GRE 500/600 units and a couple of Uniden Bearcats. They must say "Digital Trunking" or "P-25" for it to work on Ohio MARCS.

Pro-95 stopped receiving


They should still be on the 460MHz band. Not digital. Here is a great website. Poke around on this site. It's updated just about daily and I find it very accurate. Enjoy.

HOPKINSVILLE KY. POLICE DEPT. CHANGED TO A


Unfortuantly the pro-82 is not a trunked scanner, it's only a vhf/uhf scanner and cannot pickup trunked systems. You need to replace it with atleast a pro-95 to pick up trunked systems. If you need your manual for the pro-82 follow this link.

What Type Of Scanner Do I Need?


Well, the above answer is somewhat correct, but could use a little clarification.

A radio that transmits in a P25 format is digital. Digital transmissions can be trunked, but don't have to be (as is the case here). In the case of scanners, every major brand scanner out there that works on digital transmissions will decode trunked of conventional digital and analog transmissions.

The current digital models run anywhere from $399 to $599. Radio Shack has 2 newer models out that will do digital...the PRO-106 (handheld) and the PRO-197 (base/mobile). These have been on sale recently for $399. Uniden also makes digital trunking scanners..the latest models being the 396 (portable) and the 996 (base/mobile). While the 996 has the capability to be used with a GPS in a mobile setting, this feature isn't really worth the added cost, especially when compared to the feature rich PRO-197.

There are older model digital scanners, such as the Radio Shack PRO-96, PRO-2096 and the Uniden 250D and 796D. While these receive digital transmissions, the newer scanners have upgraded digital decoding algorithms that provide better audio quality and intelligibility. Also, the older scanners may not be able to decode the 700 MHz public safety band, which is becoming increasingly more popular since the 800 MHz band is quickly filling up.

One word of caution...be sure that the agency you are trying to monitor is not using encrypted transmissions. If you don't know...look up the system on radioreference.com. Channels that are encrypted usually have an "E" designation under the "mode" column. These transmissions CANNOT be decoded by any of the scanners currently on the market, even if you do have the encryption key.

I hope this helps you with your buying choices. Good luck!

My 95 is way off - Freqs,Mode not working...Grrr!


mORE AND MORE POLICE AGENCIES ARE SWITCHING TO "DIGITAL TRUNKING". I CAN ONLY PICK UP PARTS OF MY LOCAL SHERIFFS STATIONS. RADIO SHACK HAS THE NEW dIGITAL TRUNKING SYSTEMS THEY COST ABOUT $500. I AM UP GRADING NOW. FOR TRUNKING ... WHEN YOU GET A ACTIVE CHANNELL KEEP HITTING THE RED TRUNK BUTTON TILL YOU SEE THE MOTOREOLA 5 NUMBEWR ID.THJEN HIT ENTER. I WANT THE NEW PROGRAMER THAT IS FAST ENOUGH TO FOLLOW DIGITAL HYPER-TRUNKING. ALL POLISE ARE GOING TO IT EVENTUALLY.
