My new Pro-97 has a code of 11A06, I would take it that this was manufactured in November of this year? And what does the A mean?


If it matters, this scanner came in a "box" rather than the bubble-pack that I've seen most come in.

From a simple Google Search (first response):

Decoding Radio Shack Date Codes
Decoding the date code on your Radio Shack scanner is really quite simple. The date code consists of a number (from 1 to 12), followed by an "A", followed by another number (from 0-9). The first number represents the month of manufacture, while the last number represents the year. (The "A" acts as a separator.)

For example, the date code

7A4

means that the item was manufactured in July 1994. Pretty simple, eh?

Note that the decade can't be precisely determined - "7A4" could also mean July 1984. This shouldn't really be a problem, though.

Your little "whacker" buddy.
