    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:

What is the latest firmware for this model. I see that it is made by uniden, so i'd have to guess that they have upgraded its 1.06 firmware by now... As uniden has upgraded its current handhelds firmware several times already. Anyone out their with a recent 2006 build date care to take a look please. Just hold down 3+5+9 (all three at once), while you turn it on. Thanks..

1.06 here...

My PRO-83, which was purchased 3/28/2006, has firmware version 1.06.

I do not know the build date of this unit though.

I would think there won't be any more versions of firmware for this radio since it is discontinued. It is only in stores now, no longer available online.

It's the same FCC ID number as the PRO-84 race scanner and is not flash upgradable. Someone mentiioned that the firmware in the 84 version included a step size change.

Thanks guys....

Just picked up a fresh one up at my local RS. The build date code on the back of the scanner is 08A04.. Which means this radio was made in August of 2004.. So far.. I love it, it works great!! Nice Small size, Service Search, Signal Stalker, and a lighted keypad too!! I also bought the RS 800mhz antenna, much better than the stock shorty. This scanner is the best deal in town at $69.97!!
