• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Give a little more information than that. Is the signal scratchy, or is there just no sound from the speaker? Either way, explain exactly what is happening. It could be many, many things. Also, what system are you trying to receive?

I hear the beeps when i press the keys. When I scan the weather channels, it will not pick one up. when I enter a freq and transmit on it, the scanner will not pick it up!

Unless you are in a dead zone for the weather channels, take the unit back to Radioshack and try a new one. Try this: Turn squelch all the way down, and try to listen to all 7 weather channels and see if you can hear ANY voice. If you can't, take the scanner back.

I have the same problem with my pro2067 will not RX or pick nothing up. I reset the radio nothing. I had that problem before I turn it off for a few weeks and turn it on and nothing. I left it on for a few hours I start hearing things on it. Had it for a week than turn it off and its back to dead again.

Missed that part of the post, but this may be the key. How much wattage and how close were you to the scanner when you "transmitted" on the frequency? Could have blown the diode protection circuit in the front end of the 97.
