• 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:

Just joined, might need some help

Greetings;
I used to be a scanner nut years ago when programming was a simple matter. Pick a channel, plug in a freq. and enjoy. I'm a railroad nut so I think programming analog in high band is still easy for me. The issue comes from programming for my local law and fire. I live in Shelby county in Indiana and I think that the county sheriff is on 800 but not positive. I don't know anything about trunking, if they are digital and/or use tones or anything.

I just picked up a Pro-95 on eBay and have not received it yet. I'm hoping I can pickup what I want to hear.

Can someone help me out here?

I see that the pro 95 is not digital capable but you will be able to hear the analog traffic on the Shelby County Simulcast Sites County Ops 1 through 10 should pick up there vhf if they use it well good luck

Radio Shack Pro-95 is a analog scanner only.In order to hear Shelby County you will need a scanner that will be digital.The Pro-95 will pick up 154.160 for Shelby County fire for the runs that are being dispatched out.In order to hear both sides you will need a digital trunking scanner.Radio Shack along with Uniden makes digital trunking scanners.

Leave it to me to get the wrong one. Sounds like I need to repost it back on eBay. I should've done my homework first.

Hello fredandfred: Welcome to RR, where you just have to ask and answers to your questions will be coming along immediately (see how many you've gotten already). We're always ready to help out when we can.

I agree with the others about stepping up to a digital scanner, but you don't have to dump the Pro-95....there's always something to listen to on analog units.

Again, welcome!

Thanks for the greetings. My scanner interest goes back to when I worked at Regency Electronics. We produced a lot of scanners. Have some good and not so good memories from there.
I looked at the prices of digital and right now those prices just don't warrant the return. I may hang onto the 95 if I can figure out its programming.
