A common problem with many of these hand-held scanners is that the BNC antenna connector fails or the wire going from it to the radio PCB breaks. The connectors fail after removing the antenna many times.My Pro-95 went deaf after about 6 years...:-( What to do with it? It has like a ringing noise on conventional freqs and sounds like its receiving but very weak..
No i haven't called RS about any repairs not sure if i want to do that. The batteries are good just recharged them and they work in another scanner. its been sitting on a counter for a couple of years but doesn't get used all the time not being used in a car. I have a Uniden BC245XLT that receives just fine right next to it. I remember when I first bought this one I had to replace withing a month for the same problem..Have you called RS to see if repair still supports them? That is the only thing I can think of other than obvious, check for good batteries. Is it being used mobile? If so, are you using power from the car? Might be engine noise getting in.
Just a few ideas.
I have never done that with this scanner but I have heard of people doing that but I heard it didn't work very well also you have to do that via software I use a RS PRO-97 for MilAir..gus426 Sorry to hear about your pro95..I see you have been using it for 6 yrs, so I would like to know somethings about a pro95 as I just came onto owning a new looking one, question is "scanning the pro93/95, extended ranges", is it possible to fill the gap with uhf military frequencies? I am not good at understanding most of the info I found Thanks Bob
I very rarely removed the antenna its been sitting in the same spot for a couple of years unmoved I know its still possible that could be the case I may try to open it up and see I had that problem with a Uniden BC200XLT a while back. I'm not sure if I am going to sell it for parts quite yet but if I do I will PM you.

I had an ad in the Wanted section here recently, looking for a PRO-93/95 that I can use for parts. The most important component I need is the LCD from one. So if you are interested in selling, please PM me with how much you want.
I have a pro95 that you have to give the left side a good hard slap after you turn it on, after that it works fine, never opened it to find the short, probable wont until it completly failsMy Pro-95 went deaf after about 6 years...:-( What to do with it?
