• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    I live in El Paso County, Colorado, more specifically, Colorado Springs. I recently found it that the El Paso County area has now switched to a simulcast radio system. I was told they have, I think, 4 towers that transmit radio frequencies of the various agencies. However with my handheld RS...

    Pro-106: SAME Event Codes

    I have a question about programming event codes. I'd like to only get alerts on tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings, but obviously during bad weather, I can't really test my scanner for fear of doing it wrong and missing a warning altogether. So... Has anyone had experience with SAME Event...

    PRO-106 Alpha Tags & WIN500 v02.08

    Several agencies just updated to the P25 system so I had to update my scanners. I also downloaded the most recent version of WIN500. For some reason some of the groups are not showing the ALPHA TAGS even though they are all filled in. Any ideas what I am missing? I want to get my feed...

    I picked up a Pro-106, uploaded the frequencies I've had in my desktop version of this scanner (which are for Jefferson County, Colorado) and everything worked fine.

    Pro 106 Won't Scan

    I have a Radio Shack PRO-106 digital scanner and as of today will not work. It turns on fine, but beeps indicating low battery (which it isn't, I've put several different sets of batteries in). Also, it will not scan but shows the text tag of only one channel, like it is hung on that one...

    UNABLE to hear ANYTHING of Philadelphia Police or Fire on Pro-106 or Pro-197 WIN500

    As far as I know of, being original owner of both a Radioshack Pro-106 and Pro-197, I've downloaded Philadelphia Police and Fire via WIN500 and uploaded them to both scanners and I hear absolutely nothing coming from those active selected lists. I believe both scanners have latest firmware...

    Pay $$$ for Pro-106 rebanding reprogramming Knoxville Area

    Ok, so I now own a $300 paper weight if I want to monitor any LEO stuff in Knox County. If anyone's interested, let me know how much you would charge to reprogram my PRO-106 with re-banding for Knox County. I'm mostly interested in monitoring KCSO and KPD. I would also be very interested in...

    Does anyone have a PSR Edit .bin file for the NASCAR teams they would be willing to share with me? I found the Freq list for NASCAR and track on RadioReference.com, but I'm not sure where things need to go in the file. Thanks in advance! Roger

    Hit Counters - PRO-106

    The hit counter on my PRO-106 is failing to add incremental hits to some VHF objects, but is working correctly on others. I have reset the memory (and then uploaded my saved data back to the radio) but this has not resolved the problem. As far as I can tell, the radio is working correctly on...

    all but silent pro-106 in Wichita

    Hi all. Took a trip to the Wichita area in February and programmed the new Sedgewick system in my pro-106. I selected all agencies, and all frequencies from the rr database, not just the control channels. I'm using the radio shack 800 MHz antenna, and the scanner was all but silent. Completely...
