I have read my manual this is my first radio scanner. i read that this scanner was easy to use and i have also read that it isnt very simple. i am from franklin county in ohio and i am trying to program my radio scanner. i do not have a data cable. but have read you can program channles by hand. each time i try an enter a frequency/ channel and enter it the scanner with change the channel to something else .

I guess i am asking for basic tips or how to get started. i am very new and i am very lost . i do not really under stand some of the word in my manual such as (EDACS or LTR systems an such )

I've had this scanner for a number of years and really like it. I haven't tried any of the trunking features yet, but so far have programmed everything manually. It can be a little time consuming, but it also helps you get used to the keypad functions.

I think you have to keep in mind, that when someone says it's "easy to use", that's a relative term. It is pretty easy, once you've climbed the learning curve. I found this manual to be very helpful as I've made the climb. Easier to Read Pro-97/2055 Scanner Manual It really does explain a lot about this scanner in more readable terms than the manual provided with the scanner.

This website also has a lot of very useful information. Be sure to follow the instructions to the letter and you should be fine.
