Awesome! I really didn't mean to bother anyone with this, but my 'radio shack' is in pieces from trying to find the OM for this one. Found the manuals for every other scanner I have! Thanks again!!! Now, time to put this mess back together........!

Download the manual(s) from RadioShack Digital Trunking Radio Scanner User's Guide | ManualsOnline.com and put them on a smartphone or tablet or Dropbox-type account to have instant access anywhere you wander.

For some reason this Index to Scanners or tech support doesn't seem to be directly available from Radio Shack's home page, but it is useful for older RS scanner research.

To find manuals for your other stuff, put the manufacturer name plus catalog (or model) number followed by the word 'manual' into almost any search engine (Google, Yahoo, Bing, et al).

Hope this helps.
