Radio Shack Pro-106 manual

The Radio Shack Pro-106 is a Digital Trunk Tracking scanner that boasts the ability to track APCO 25 digital trunking systems, in addition to following Motorola type I/II systems, LTR, and EDACS trunking systems. The Pro-106 is one of the hottest scanners ever sold. There is nothing that currently rivals it. The PRO106 handheld digital scanner provides the user with up to 1800 Scannable Objects that can be scanned.

Getting the most out of your scanner requires some understanding of how to use it. That’s where having the owner’s manual comes in handy. With proper usage, there is less risk of damage, and you’ll learn how to get the most out of it.

Features

  • Object-oriented memory management. See the Object Oriented Scanning Described article for more information
  • 22 Scan Lists – 20 lists to program, use, and select like traditional banks allowing you to arrange, group and scan objects according to your preference with an additional ‘Favorites’ list to create a scan list tailored to your favorite objects and a ‘Skywarn’ list
  • Multi-Site Trunking – allows you to scan systems covering a very large geographic area that uses multiple antenna sites and operates on different frequencies but use the same Talk Group IDs
  • Multi-Site option to look for the site with the best-received CC decode rate. (Not the same as RSSI on the Motorola rigs, but similar in operation)
  • 21 Virtual Scanner Memories; one copy of working memory can hold up to 1800 objects, meaning any combination of talk groups, conventional channels, and trunking systems. Each V-Scanner folder holds one copy of the working memory. So, 21 * 1800 = about 37,800 objects altogether can be stored in the V-Scanner storage system
  • 700MHz and 380MHz Trunk Scanning
  • Object programmable LED; eight factory default colors to any color/brilliance you want by having direct access to the R-G-B drive values (including flash) to assign to talk groups, frequencies, agencies, etc.
    • LATCH option; the color of the last received object stays on until reset
  • Audible Alarms – programmable audible alerts can be configured to sound when certain scannable objects are active
  • Hit Counters – keep track of how many transmissions are received for each object type
  • Signal Stalker II Near field frequency capture
  • LTR Home Repeater AutoMove – enter the LTR system frequencies in any order, and the scanner will automatically move the frequencies to the proper home repeater slots as transmissions are received on the system
  • Object Duplication- useful when entering multiple ID objects that are in the same trunked radio system, or multiple conventional objects that have similar parameters or tag names
  • FlexStep – allows you to enter a frequency in any 1.25 kHz step
  • TCXO for frequency stability
  • Adaptive digital tracking (ADT)
  • Digital signal processing (DSP)
  • Triple conversion
  • Digital AGC
  • CTCSS/DCS abilities
  • Network Access Code can be programmed to only break squelch when receiving the correct NAC in a conventional P25 system
  • Pre-programmed systems for most major metropolitan areas
  • 7 Service Search Bands – Marine, CB, FRS/GMRS/MURS, Police/Fire, Air, Ham, and Railroad and a limit search
  • Zeromatic search tuning
  • Built-in discriminator data output in simple ASCII output using the PC/IF port
  • Full duplex support and USB connection using the Whistler programming cable (Not included)
  • Scan rate 55 CPS
  • Search speed 90 CPS
  • Direct Tune mode
  • Default Option keys; return to the default setting for any menu
  • 16-character alpha-tagging with text entry can show ID code or service name
  • Temporary/Permanent Lockouts – lets you temporary or permanently lockout any programmed object
  • Scan/Search/Trunking Delay – variable delay (0 to 25 seconds) before searching for another object so you can hear more replies that are made on the same object
  • UNSQUELCH Delay; Delay settings before the radio unmutes audio to the speaker
  • Motorola Control Channel Only trunking
  • Private Calls and RadioID alpha display
  • Easy-to-read backlit control and display with backlit keypad
  • Object ‘Find’ – lets you search by lockout status or by text
  • Weather band with enhanced SAME Weather Alert functions and weather priority—access weather channels and alerts with the push of a button
  • Priority Scan – the scanner will sample conventional objects for activity periodically while scanning and monitoring other objects. The scanner will also give IDs priority over other IDs while checking a particular trunking system for activity
  • 20 dB attenuator – lets you program your scanner (per object or globally) to reduce the scanner’s sensitivity to strong local signals or noise caused by these signals to reduce interference
  • Create a password to use the scanner
  • Computer interface and Programming (with computer control)
  • 3 function keys; softkeys, that when pressed, execute the function that is shown just above the key in the display
  • 5-way navigation keys to access special modes and programming options
  • 4 line x 16 character display with relative signal strength meter
  • Display of the Radio ID of the transmitting user
  • Data Cloning – lets you transfer the programmed data from one scanner to another. You can also download the programmed data from a PC to the scanner or upload the programmed data to the scanner (using an optional two-way PC cable) with optional software
  • BNC connector
