Dear Friends,

I just recently bought a new Radio Shack Pro-164 thinking that it would allow me to hear the new metrosafe system. I just finished programming using the recommended software and I'm not hearing a thing. Will this scanner work?

That scanner will not work with the new Metrosafe system. You will need additional scanner capable of scanning a P25 trunked system! Something like a radio shack 106 or 197, GRE and Uniden also makes several models capable of receiving on this system.

Uniden BC296D

I'm having a similar problem, though, my scanner (Uniden BC296D) is APCO 25 capable. I've got all the Control and Alternate frequencies programmed, but I can't get anything. I'm sure it's some setting on the scanner. I haven't really kept up with the technology changes over the passed decade.
Any help is appreciated.

I'm going to browse the Metrosafe thread and see if there is anything there.

Yes it does. When I power up, the display shows ""APCO P25 Card installed 9600 bps system". And the card is physically there.

I have a 796D which I believe is the mobile version of the 296D. It has the digital card, but I am unsuccesful at listening to any of the MetroSafe trunked system with it.
