Dose any one know how many watts the pro-95 using to receive? If not, is there a way to find out? Also is there a good way to up the receiving wattage with out frying the radio?

Thanks,
Pat

That question doesn't make sense. Radios don't use watts to receive, that's a term for transmitters.

If you're asking about what kind of external power supply you need, according to the manual

You can power the scanner using a 9V, 300 mA AC adapter and a size B Adaptaplug (neither supplied). Both are available at your local RadioShack store.
The 9V is critical, the power supply must supply 9 volts, not 6 and not 12. The 300 mA is the minimum value your power supply must provide, it can provide more, but the radio won't work reliably if it provides less. If the power supply is 9V and say 500 mA or 9V and 800 mA it should work fine.

These from Radio Shack should do (bring your radio with you to the store so the sales rep can make sure you get the correct items):

The Adaptaplug you'll need is Enercell Adaptaplug B : Adaptaplugs | RadioShack.com
and either of these supplys should work OK:
300 mA supply (will supply just what your radio indicates) --> Enercell 9V/300mA AC Adapter : AC Adapters | RadioShack.com
800 mA supply (will supply enough for your radio and may work for others that use up to 800 mA) --> Enercell 9VDC/ 800mA AC Adapter : AC Adapters | RadioShack.com

You could also get one of their switchable voltage supplies, but then you would need to make sure that it's set for 9V or you could have issues (like not working if it's too low or burning up the scanner if it's too high). I find that although the switchable supplies are more versital, a fixed voltage supply often is best.
