    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.

I was trying to figure out if there was a way to set my Pro 97 back\screen light to come on when it picks up signal ? I didn't see anything in the manual, anyone know if this can be done ?

Thanks.

This question has been asked before, it can't be done,not even with Win 97.
I have a Pro 97 ,whish it had that feature but it doesn't.

I set the backlight display time to 20 (2/100s of a second) with Win97, and when I press and hold the light button down for a second, the light will stay on. Which I need sometimes.....

Intrepid is correct it will only work in manual mode, not scan mode.

while locked on the channel you'd like to monitor,
Press and hold the light button till it beeps.
when your scanner enters power save mode, it will automatically turn off the backlight, and turn it back on when the squelch is broken.

Pro-97 light setting

After the Welcome Screen, press scan, then press and hold the light button for 2 seconds, it will beep. Now your backlight will stay on all the time, until you turn it off of course. I use this daily, but I'm plugged into power as well, to save the battery.
