    Grecom psr-500 - No Regrets

    I live in Ontario, Canada and mostly listen to the OPP (P25). I decided to buy the Grecom psr-500. Friends told me not to waste my money, because the OPP would encrypt in the near future. I have used that radio almost daily for the past eight years. When I bought it, I figured that if they did...

    How to fix PSR-500, Pro-106, Pro-651 Keypad

    Just an informational post, if anyone has a scanner with a worn out keypad that won't register key hits, here is a video on how to repair them. Pretty easy and cheap! This should also be the same type of procedure for pretty much any handheld scanner.

    Can't Program PSR-500 To Save My Life - Help

    So i'm about fed up trying to program this scanner, i bought it used on eBay and also purchased an FTDI programming cable on eBay. It said it is the same as the RS 20-546 cable, just technically not the real radioshack branded one. I'm wondering if my issues are stemming from that... So i would...

    PSR 500

    I am a newbie with the PSR 500. I apologize if this is covered on another thread. I ordered my unit last year with local programming from Scannermaster (Katy/Fort Bend County). The unit works fine on conventional channels, but I am not getting the trunked systems at all. I ordered the...

    Anybody happen to know what frequencies the TWRA uses? I'm particularly interested in Hamilton and Meigs Counties. I have a PSR 500 so I should be able pick most any frequency.

    GRE PSR-500 vs. GRE PSR-800 (Help Me Decide On GRE's Top 2))

    Hello Radio Reference'rs, I am somewhat new to the DIGITAL scanning world but not the old. I have been looking at the GRE PSR-500 and I was sold until I noticed the PSR-800 for just a few more bucks. Even the PSR-900 is coming soon but well skip that for now.. Now besides the obvious cosmetic...

    Import CSV Files

    Does Win500 allow you to import csv files in the PSR500? New to this and became a member and I can import the files using the WEB IMPORT but haven't had success saving a file as a csv file and bringing it in the scan list. Thanks in advance for any help.

    GRE PSR-500 any good for me?

    OK, so I know what the PSR-500 is capable of in terms of trunking, digital modes, freq coverage and so on. However I have a hesitation about purchasing one based on my current experiences with a GRE made Radio Shack Pro 97. My concern centers around the sensitivity & selectivity. Here in...

    Gre psr 500

    I was using my 500 the other night and there was a talkgroup user talking and I have it set up so a specific LED color comes on with a specific user. Anyways when I picked it up I accidentally pushed F3, which blacked out the scanner. The LCD worked but the LED and backlight went off. I got a...

    PSR 500 Radio ID's

    Is there any way to rename the radio ID's that show up on the scanner? I would like to change the radio ID number to what it actually is, for example a dispatch radio. They seem to always use the same four radio ID's so instead of seeing radio ID 10970 I would like it to show Radio ID...

    Psr 500

    I was just wondering, what is the difference between boot version 1.0 and 1.4? I have a 1.0 and have to use the first update, am I missing things because I do not have the 1.4 version? I had zero problems updating my 500, download was sweet and easy, I just read the few lines of instruction (...

    Offutt APCO

    I purchased a GRE PSR-500. Monitoring OPD and Fire is great. However, the Offutt system is just mainly a silent signal. I remember this vaguely in the past with other scanners. I'm using the Win500 software to program the psr500...what should I do? Is it scrambled? Sometimes maintenance...

    Need assistance for a freq.

    I was using the tune feature on my 500 and I came across some "computer" noise. It sounds like the same tones over and over. The frequency is 36.0500 mhz. Would this be a pager system? I thought they only broadcasted when a page was sent. This is constant. I am up in Northern Ontario 300...

    Numbered Memory Locations

    Hey guys, Question about the 500/600. Are the memory locations numbered ? Say for instance you want your scanner to switch to a certain talkgroup, is it possible while in non-scan mode to use the key pad to switch to the memory location for that talkgroup? Similarly like you can on...
