I have been trying for some time now to get this scanner to pick up any channel. It never hits on anyone talking on the search or the scan. I ahve used the database here and entered all the local freq around me and i never get anything. I do get the weather loud and clear tho?

Any ideas.

The Pro-97 will not do digital and many of your local systems are digital so you may be out of luck for much of what you want to listen to. Since you didn't detail what they were I can only make that general statement but below are a list of systems that are in your area and digital to help with your "not gonna happen" list.

* Jonesboro Public Safety (https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=998) Notes indicate that they're MotoTRBO, which is digital.
* Jonesboro Public Safety (MOTOTRBO) (https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=7090) The listing for the MotoTRBO system above, as indicated it's digital.
* Arkansas Wireless Information Network (AWIN) (https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=3918) P-25 Phase I Digital

Now to give you some hope, there are now scanners that will work for P-25 and MotoTRBO (aka DMR). They're the higher end scanners (read most expensive) and for DMR, you may need to download firmware upgrades to enable your new scanner to decode DMR. Some of these upgrades are free while others are an extra cost option so verify prior to your purchase!
