If you have the ARC500 programming software from BuTel you can get to those settings by going to "Global Settings" and then to the "Colors/Display/Sound" tab. If you don't have the ARC500 software from BuTel you can download a trial/demo version for free from their website: Software for Uniden Whistler HOME PATROL HP1 HP-1 PRO-700 BCD436HP BCD536HP Radioshack GRE GRECOM MFJ DSE AOR police scanner software BCD996XT BCD396XT BC346T BCT15X PRO-404 PRO-405 PRO-97 PRO-96 PRO-2096 PRO-106 PRO-197 PRO-164 PRO-160 PRO-162 psr50The alert mode has off-both-tone-and light there is no on i tried light and it did not turn the color 0 to on. I had my led lights working about 4 years ago but i can't remember how i got them to work. Thank you for trying to help me out.HELP
You should download the Easier to Read Manual for the PRO-197 (Easier to Read Pro-651/652/106/197 - WS1040/1065 - PSR 500/600 Digital Scanner Manual). After you have done that you should go to the "Global Settings Menu" section of the manual and then read about "Color 0-7" "LED BlinkOff" "LED BlinkOn" and "Alert Mode." That should answer all of your questions.I have the arc 500 program the color 0 is black and in the sound section the alert mode is both, is that how you set the led alert mode to on in the arc 500 program?
i dont understand what you are asking. i have the pro107 and now it very well. i can program it by hand. that is how i do everything, for the most part. i do load some large systems using freescan for it, however. the led alert light is easy to adjust under each system and talkgroup. mine is light blue for sherrif, blue for pd, red for fire ems, green for rangers, yellow for animal control, white for and UNID talk group and flashing.In the global settings how do you turn on the 0 so i can use my led light, Thank-YOU
You can use FreeSCAN to program your Radio Shack scanner? I thought it only worked with Uniden scanners: https://sites.google.com/site/sixspotsoftware/products/freescan...i have the pro107 and now it very well...i do load some large systems using freescan for it...
sorry about that, i get them confused as i have both. i use win50 for the pro 197 and pro 97.You can use FreeSCAN to program your Radio Shack scanner? I thought it only worked with Uniden scanners: https://sites.google.com/site/sixspotsoftware/products/freescan
Just for full clarification and to avoid confusing anyone, if you use StarrSoft programming software to program your Radio Shack scanners, you would use Win500 for the PRO-197 and Win97 for the PRO-97: Software for RadioShack PRO-series (PRO-92, 93, 95, 96, 97, 99, 163, 164, 106, 197, 651, 652), Whistler (WS1040, WS1065), and GRE PSR-series (PSR-500, 600, 300, 400, 310, 410) scannerssorry about that, i get them confused as i have both. i use win50 for the pro 197 and pro 97.
If you go into the ARC500 program (that you said you have in your post above) and go to "Object Browser" "Scannable Objects" you will see that you can set the "LED Mode" and "LED Color" for each "object" that you have programmed in your scanner. You might want to make a backup of your ARC500 programming before you start making changes so that you can go back to where you started if you need/want to.I got the led light working, now can i go into my global settings using the scanner to change the colors for police fire county sheriff etc...
If you have ARC500, and the proper cable, and if your scanner currently has programming in it that you would like to save to your computer, you would...When i program my scanner i never saved it to arc 500, does that mean i have to start all over? i've had a stroke so my brain don't work very good but i remember i could change the colors going in the scanner global settings, i think LOL
