    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:

Hi all!

I've finally gotten hold of my sister in laws Pro-91. This is my first venture with scanning and I'm SOOOOOOOO confused!!

I've tried programming this thing, and I'm really having trouble.... part of which I'm sure is just my inexperience with even the basics.

One of the things I'm trying to figure out is that whenever I try to enter a frequency it always says error! WHY in the heck does it do that!?

Would it be better for me to just set this thing back to the original factory settings (if it's possible) and go from there?

Boy I just wish I could figure it out!

We will need to know what system you are trying to program into it before we can help you any further.

I dont have a 91, but I'm assuming they are like all the rest of the radio shack scanners, in order to manually enter a frequency you must:

1. press the MAN (manual) button
2. enter the desired frequency location , what channel number EX: 001...002....003
3. Press the PROGRAM button perhaps it will say PGM on it
4. enter the frequency, dont forget the decimal point
5. PRESS ENTER & it should be saved in the location you specified.

If it still says error, maybe you are trying to enter a frequency that the pro-91 is not designed for. Is it 800MHz capable? If so, it should say it on the outside of the scanner somewhere. Is the freq you are trying to enter 800 or above? Ex: 865.7880
