First, thanks in advance to anyone able to help. I am a new scanner owner with a PRO 82 which of course you have to manually program. Here is the number 1 problem. Apparently, I can't program any frequency with the first digit beginning in 8 I guess. Also, is CharMeck digital and would that not work with my PRO82 or even if I bought the PRO162 or PRO164? I am thinking about trying one of those two and the scan cat disc to program from my computer. Any ideas would be great. Which would be better, the PRO162 or the PRO164? It looks like all of the Police frequencies begin w/ a number 8 here in Charlotte. Sorry to be so wordy.
