Default RADIO SHACK PRO-95 TRUNKING PROGRAMMING

I am really having a hard time with the trunking programming
of my Pro-95. The manual seems confusing to me. Any place on the internet
I can find easy instructions or simple step by step diagrams. Thanks

I found it was easier to use WIN95 from Don Starr. It is free and it makes it a lot easier to program the 95. You do need to have the cable to do so though.

I found some pics off the RS site that may help you. They apply to both
the Pro 95 and Pro 93
Check here
http://support.radioshack.com/suppor...oc67/67345.htm

Next, I see you are located in Anne Arundel County in Maryland .
The freq's from the RR Database are here
http://www.radioreference.com/module...DB&sid=187

So, give it a try and see if that helps. You may also want to ask someone
in the Maryland forum for assistance as well.

Thanks for the info on how to load the trunking frequencies.
Now I need help with loading the talkgroups. I am having trouble with the following scenereo. I want to load Anne Arundel County,Md. fire talkgroups on my Pro-95. To begin I want to load the 1-A Dispatch.
My Radio Shack frequency guide lists the talkgroup as 57360.
However, the Radio Reference Trunked Radio database lists the talkgroup as DEC HEX
16 001
What are DEC and HEX? What do I need to do to load the talkgroups?
Thanks for the assistance. Rich

Default Pro-95

First off, get Don Starr's Win95 program. Makes it real easy to program and you can have multiple files setup for different locations if you travel. The program is free, jsut be sure you get the right cable for your scanner. The Win95 website has details on the cable, and you can build your own. I am used to using the computer from programming (Motorola and MA/COM) so it was natural to use it for the scanner. Much easier.

DEC is decimel, the normal way of counting. HEX is hexadecimal, base 16 you would count 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F 10 11 12... The basic windows calculator will convert for you. Click the bubble i nthe upper left for the base you want to convert from and enter the number, then click the base you want and it will do the conversion. Simple.

Good luck,

Josh

Definetly get the Win95 program and use that to program your scanner.

To be more specific for Anne Arundel County. Radio Shack programed your scanner with the WRONG information. 57360 is the OLD DEC talkgroup for 1A on the OLD system that is no longer used. Which is typical for RS. I hope they didnt charge you.

If you look in the database here. 16 is the new DEC talkgroup for 1A on the new system which has all new frequencies. So I really hate to say this but you will have to re program the entire system yourself. You can contact me hear at RR.com when you get set up to get the PRO-95 file that has all the freqs and talkgroup setups for AACo. It also has some other interesting freqs that you might be interested in thats around AA and Baltimore Counties.

If you have any questions about how to program the scanner through the keypad, or how to use Win95, you can email me at scanfan@aol.com directly and I will answer almost any question you have.

Ok, I have a pro-95 myself and our city uses trunked system also. I am having a very hard time getting the school bus and public works not to come in on their own. Anything OTHER then the win95 which you all are referring too would be what we are looking for. I know you CAN program this scanner from the keypad and NOT need additional software to do so. This has been a gigantic pain in my head so I just use RR on my phone.

The PRO-95 has two trunking modes, OPEN and CLOSED.(Page 25)
OPEN lets you hear ALL active Talk Groups.
CLOSED lets you hear only the Talk Groups you have programmed into the Scan Lists.
TRUNK 5 toggles between the two modes.

The manual should tell you how to enter the Talk Groups into the scan lists.

As another poster mentioned, never trust the stuff RS knows about scanners...our database is far and away better for AA county.

Note that AA county trunk is a mixed mode system - there are analog and digital talkgroups. The PRO-95 won't handle the digital stuff - for that you would need a digital trunktracker.

DEC and HEX represent the manner in which the talkgroup is listed - DECimal or HEXadecimal. In your case, ignore the Hex stuff.

And if you're doing this manually, this might help...

Thank you, I knew I was missing something.
