i have the pro-197 scanner.
took awhile to figure out,but i found some frequcies and it was doing ok.
i went to radio shack today and spent another $35.00 for a cable and another $59.00 on this website to download more frequencies.
now it shows i have about 1000 downloading,but all my scanner does is scan and i dont hear anything,not even the stuff i typed in manually.

Do you have it set to P25 Auto?, since Michigan is pretty much digital State now. I know there is one guy that lives in Warren, MI who is on here his name is Freqs, he may be able to help you. Or even myself can also. Your Pro 197 is just like my Pro 106 pretty much and just like the PSR 500 and 600. They all program pretty much the same way.

I do program mine by hand.
