Programming the Radio Shack Pro-95
Contributed by Casey Miller, Snellville, Georgia


The instructions that follow will walk you step-by-step through how to program a Radio Shack Pro-95 scanner to scan Gwinnett County's radio system.


Entering the Frequencies

The first thing we must do to setup the scanner to listen to Gwinnett County is to enter the radio frequencies used by Gwinnett's system. This will tell the scanner where to tune to hear radio traffic.
  1. Turn the scanner off and then back on.
  2. Across the top, line 1, you will see 12 characters some of which are alphanumeric or a dot. Each character represents vital detail, duh, regarding each specific frequency, duh again. Seriously, assuming that you are at BANK 0 and CHANNEL 00. If you are unsure of this then press MANUAL then enter 000 then press ENTER. You are now at BANK 0 and CHANNEL 00.
  3. Press PGM then press TRUNK then press MODE until you see MOT: in the third line then press PGM.
  4. Then enter your first frequency, 854.78750, then press ENTER then press either PGM or the (up-arrow) to go to the next channel.
  5. Repeat step #4 for the rest of the frequencies 854.81250, 854.83750, 855.31250, 855.48750, 855.76250, 855.78750, 855.81250, 856.81250, 856.83750, 856.91250, 857.81250, 857.83750, 857.91250, 858.78750, 858.81250, 866.13750, 866.21250, 866.38750, 867.33750, 867.38750, 867.96250, 868.11250, 868.13750, 868.48750.
  6. The next thing is to go back to BANK 0 CHANNEL 00, which can be done using the (down-arrow) button until P000 is in the upper left corner of the LCD screen.
  7. Now that you are at P000 you need to press MODE until MO appears in the upper right corner of the LCD screen. Once MO is present then press the (upper-arrow) to increment the channel (i.e. P001).
  8. Repeat step #7 for all the other frequencies.
  9. At this point the scanner is ready to trunk, so you can press SCAN and you are done, almost. Note: If this is as far as you want to go then you must make sure the BANK is OPEN, not CLOSED (see explanation #1 below). To do this press MANUAL then FUNC then the number five (5). You can repeat this to close and repeat to open.

Entering Text Tags for the Frequencies (not talkgroup ID’s)

  1. You need to start at BANK 0 CHANNEL 00. To do this press MANUAL then press 000 then press MANUAL again. The LCD should read M000 in the upper left corner.
  2. Press PGM then TEXT. The LCD should read P000 now. Now this is where it gets fun, because you can write just about anything you want just as long as it is 12 characters or less. I am going to program the message “GwinettTrunk” without the quotations.
  3. Okay, your scanner should still display P000 in the upper left corner, if not repeat step #2.
  4. Press 41 to display G.
  5. Press 9 FUNC 1 to display w.
  6. Press 4 FUNC 3 to display i.
  7. Press 6 FUNC 2 to display n.
  8. Press 3 FUNC 2 to display e.
  9. Press 8 FUNC 1 to display t.
  10. Press 8 FUNC 1 to display t.
  11. Press 81 to display T.
  12. Press 7 FUNC 3 to display r.
  13. Press 8 FUNC 2 to display u.
  14. Press 6 FUNC 2 to display n.
  15. Press 5 FUNC 2 to display k.
  16. Press ENTER and you should now see “GwinettTrunk” on the third line of the LCD. NOTE: if you make a mistake you can press the CL key to delete the current character.
  17. Press PGM or the (upper-arrow) to advance to the next channel.
  18. Repeat steps #4 through #17 for all the frequencies and you will be done for this part.
  19. Press SCAN to begin trunking.

Programming the Scan Lists with Text-Tags

Now it's time to program the "scan lists" to tell the scanner what talkgroups (Fire Dispatch, Westside Police Dispatch, etc).

For each trunk system that is being scanned the scanner gives you 5 "scan lists" that can each contain up to 20 talkgroups, which means you can store up to 100 talkgroup ID’s. These "scan lists" allow you to group talkgroups (like Fire Dispatch, Fire TAC 2, etc) into "scan lists" that will allow you to tell the scanner what you want to hear easily.

The instructions below will setup your scanner with the following scan lists:
Scan List 0Gwinnett Police
Scan List 1Gwinnett Sheriff
Scan List 2Gwinnett Fire and EMS
Scan List 3Gwinnett City Police Departments (all 6 of them)
Scan List 4Noda

To begin programming the scan lists press MANUAL then press 000 then MANUAL again.


Programming Scan List 0: Gwinnett Police

Press PGM then TRUNK. Make sure the LCD displays:
Bank 0-0 ON
ID No. 00
MOT: none

Use the (upper-arrow) or (down-arrow) to get to this. You can also press TRUNK to increment to the next sub-bank and then the (upper-arrow) or (down-arrow) to increment or decrement the ID No. Also, make sure that the third line displays MOT. If not press MODE until MOT appears on the third line.

  • You are through programming the talkgroup ID’s so you can press SCAN. If you really want to program the rest of Gwinnett’s talkgroup ID’s then you can use the unused ID’s.

Explanation

  1. OPEN/CLOSED MODE

    OPEN MODE allows the scanner to stop on any ID code, even if the ID code wasn’t programmed (i.e. the Water Department or etc.).
    CLOSED MODE, when set, only stops on programmed ID codes, which is usually desirable.

    You can easily change this mode from OPEN to CLOSE or vice versa by pressing SCAN then FUNC then the number 5. To see which mode you are in look at the top line in the LCD screen. If you see the 10th character as a +(plus) then you are in OPEN MODE and likewise, if you see a –(minus) then you are in CLOSED MODE.

    REMEMBER, IF YOU ONLY HAVE THE FREQUENCIES PROGRAMMED AND NO TALKGROUP ID CODES PROGRAMMED THEN YOU MUST SET THE MODE TO OPEN.

  2. STATUS BIT

    I will not go into much detail here, but here are the basics. Motorola talkgroup IDs are divisible by 16. Numbers other than 16 are a result of a "status bit". In the case of the Lilburn TAC2, which is 2674 and is also divisible by 16 but with 2 as a remainder. So, if you program TGID 2674, then the PRO-95 will fuss and want to change it to 2672, which is Lilburn’s Dispatch ID and divisible by 16 with no remainder. 2674 = 2672+2 = Emergency.

    ID+1 = ATG (All Talkgroup)
    ID+2 = Emergency
    ID+3 = Crosspatch
    ID+4 = Emergency Crosspatch
    ID+5 = Emergency Multi-select
    ID+6 = ? (possibly not used)
    ID+7 = Multi-select
    ID+8 = DES/DVP (digital encryption)
    ID+9 = DES ATG
    ID+10 = DES Emergency
    ID+11 = DES Patch
    ID+12 = DES Emergency patch
    ID+13 = DES Emergency Multi-select
    ID+14 = ? (Possibly not used)
    ID+15 = DES Multi-select


There are many more features that can be done manually but my suggestion is to invest in the PC cable and download the Don Starr’s free Win95 program. GOOD LUCK
