Stay on top of stuff. Many cities and towns have switched their emergency systems to trunking systems that automatically jump from one frequency to another with each transmission. The Pro-163 is designed to keep up with that so you'll get the entire conversation. You'll receive NOAA weather transmissions in your area. Emergency transmissions nearby are grabbed by Signal StalkerTM, which automatically picks up transmissions up to 1000-ft. away from your scanner. Follow police, fire, marine bands and more. Use the Pro-163 in your vehicle or on a table at home. Store up to 1,000 frequencies, covers police frequencies in most metropolitan areas Hear storm reports before they are broadcast on TV or radio, alerts you to severe weather locally Searches for nearby frequency transmissions within approximately 1,000 feet of the radio Easy to read in low light or completely dark areas Download frequencies from your computer with software and patch cable (SKU 20-047, sold separately) Clones with another PRO-163, 20-163 desktop or with the handheld version, PRO-164, 20-164
High-powered handheld. High-performance, extended-coverage scanner has the ability to scan both trunked and conventional channels at the same time. Program up to 100 frequencies in banks of 10 for easier access. Triple-trunking lets you follow a signal in virtually any market that uses an analog trunking system. Signal StalkerTM circuitry searches for nearby frequency transmissions and lets you hear a nearby radio without knowing its frequency. Skywarn lets you hear local severe-weather observers and get warnings before they are broadcast on local radio or TV. The neat stuff * Features Signal StalkerTM circuitry and Skywarn * AM/FM mode selector * Service search key for marine, fire/police, air, CB and HAM bands * 1 priority channel * Key lock prevents accidental dropping of communication * Frequency lock-out to block unwanted frequencies * Triple-conversion Superheterodyne receiver virtually eliminates image-type interference * Includes: VHF Lo/Hi, UHF, VHF-Air and 800MHz
The Pro-95 RadioShack Handheld Scanner is one of a new generation of scanners designed to track Motorola Type I and II (such as Smartnet and Privacy Plus) and hybrid analog trunking systems, and GE/Ericsson (EDACS) type systems, which are extensively used in many communication systems. Trunking communications systems let a large group of 2-way radio users (or even different groups of 2-way radio users) efficiently use a set of frequencies. Instead of selecting a specific frequency for a transmission, the user simply selects a talk group. The trunking system automatically transmits the call on the first available frequency, and also sends a code that uniquely identifies that transmission. Since the trunking system might send a call and its response on different frequencies, it is difficult to listen to trunked communications using a regular scanner. The trunking scanner monitors the data sent with a 2- way radio transmission, so you can hear the call and response for that user and more easily follow the conversation. The scanner also lets you scan conventional transmissions, and is preprogrammed with service search banks for convenience. By pressing a single button, you can quickly search those frequenciesmost commonly used by public service and other agencies. This scanner gives you direct access to over 59,000 frequencies including those used by police and fire departments, ambulance services, government agencies, air, and amateur radio services.
