operates similarly to a frequency counter I believe. It is basically for powerful signals nearby and can be compared to Uniden's Close Call if you know anything about it. Examples would be a portable radio down the street or something similar or a base a few hundred feet away. If you are searching for frequencies, you might want to consider using the Search
function and check out SR3 (Public Safety).
As for weather, can't provide much feedback as I don't have experience with the Pro-164. I did a quick check of the NWS page and it looks like there are quite a few different weather stations covering the area you live in. You may want to try hitting WX a second or third time to see if it improves at all.
If you haven't seen the Easier to Read
manual, try checking it out. It's usually pretty thorough and will most likely teach you a thing or two about your new scanner.
