This is at least the first impropper frequency! If you were to put it in manually it will round off to 156.0525. You cannot manually enter 156.05 in this scanner and have it not round off. By forcing an entry like 156.05 to exist in memory of this scanner it stalls at that point because it is not a valid step.
Load the list - hit SCAN - then hit MANUAL to stop the scan. Hit PROGRAM and over type the frequency and press ENTER. If it rounds to a different value make note of the more correct frequency in your source list to prevent future problems. When you hit SCAN and it starts to work normally you have corrected all of the errors.
The frequency 156.05 is probably correct in today's band plan, but the PRO-96 cannot be upgraded in program code to understand the difference. We just have to live with this little problem or buy a newer scanner.
