It really depends on the condition of the PRO-92. Keep in mind, while the PRO-92 is an older model than the PRO-95; the PRO-92 has PL/DPL decoding. The PRO-92 is not as elegant as the PRO-97, but holds its own in many ways. Some people like it specifically for the SAME Wx decoding.
Another issue is rebanding and how it will affect MO trunked systems. Clearly the PRO-95 & PRO-97 will not work on affected MOT type systems, while it is possible that the PRO-92 will. This is because the PRO-92 is not a "control channel only" scanner.
All that being said, if the PRO-92 is in great condition and all original components are included (both battery holders, antenna, manual), then certainly it's worth $100.
I agree with that.The CTCSS/DCS was never as good as decoding a correct tone for me as my 97.
I have the latest version of the '92, and it is not a true CC only scanner. While it read data from the CC, you still have to program the other TRS frequencies.The last two versions were "control channel only" capable so the original is the one some people want for post-rebanding use.
Yeah, seems I was in a hurry and mis-spoke. I meant that the original version (not the "A" or "B") is what is valued by some for it's alleged ability to survive rebanding and still be usable on motorola 800mhz systems.I have the latest version of the '92, and it is not a true CC only scanner. While it read data from the CC, you still have to program the other TRS frequencies.
There's 3 versions. The Pro 92 that trunks with sub audio tones and was made in Japan. The Pro 92A is a CC trunk radio built in Japan. The Pro92B is the same I think but made in China. Look on the back of the radio beside the Radio Shack Item number and see if there is a box beside it with a letter A or B in it.How would one tell if a PRO-92 scanner is a version A or B?
When you turn the scanner on, during the time the sign-on message is displayed, press 3. The scanner will display its formware version. The original version (PRO-92) shows as version 1.00. The PRO-92B displays version 3.28.How would one tell if a PRO-92 scanner is a version A or B?
