Here are the specs on the one I have
In the specs, it says "except cellular band" I know I have picked some of them up in the past, so I'm nit too sure why it says this?
PRO-94 1000-Channel Handheld Trunking Scanner
(200-0524) Features Faxback Doc. # 57982
Your RadioShack PRO-94 1000-Channel Handheld Trunking Scanner is one of a
new generation of scanners designed to track Motorola Type I, Type II,
hybrid analog systems, (such as Smartnet and Privacy Plus) plus GE/
Ericsson EDACS. Those systems are extensively used in many 800 MHz,
900 MHz, and UHF 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 (on a
different frequency called a Data channel) a code that uniquely identifies
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 Pro-94 lets you select and monitor the data channel
frequency 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 it is
preprogrammed with service banks for convenience. By pressing a single
button, you can quickly search those frequencies most commonly used by
public service and other agencies, without tedious and complicated
This scanner gives you direct access to over 37,000 exciting frequencies,
including police and fire departments, ambulance services, and amateur
radio services, and you can change your selection at any time.
Your scanner also has these special features:
Triple-Conversion Circuitry - virtually eliminates any interference from
IF (intermediate frequency) images, so you
hear only the selected frequency.
20 Channel-Storage Banks - you can store up to 50 channels in each of
10 different banks, in two separate groups,
for a total of 1000 channels, so you can
more easily identify calls.
Five Scan Lists - you can store up to 50 trunking talk group
IDs in each trunk scanning bank.
NWR-SAME Circuitry - lets you listen to coded weather emergency
information using Specific Area Message
Two-Second Scan Delay - delays scanning for about 2 seconds before
moving to another channel, so you can hear
more replies that are made on the same
Lock-Out Function - lets you set your scanner to skip over
specified channels or frequencies when
scanning or searching, and skip over talk
group IDs when tracking trunked systems.
Priority Channels - lets you program one channel in each bank
(20 in all) and then have the scanner check
that channel every 2 seconds while it scans
the bank, so you don't miss transmissions on
Five Service Banks - frequencies are preset in separate police
(fire/emergency), aircraft, ham, marine, and
weather banks, to make it easy to locate
specific types of calls.
Hypersearch - lets you set the scanner to search at up to
300 steps per second in frequency bands with
5 kHz steps, compared to the normal search
speed of 100 steps per second.
Hyperscan - the scanner automatically scans up to 50
channels per second to help you quickly find
Key Lock - lets you lock the scanner's keys to help
prevent accidental changes to the scanner's
Data Signal Skip - lets you set the scanner to skip non
modulated or data signals (such as fax or
modem transmissions) during searches. This
lets the scanner avoid non-voice signals,
making a search faster.
Disconnect Tone Detect - the scanner automatically tunes to the
trunking data channel when it receives a
disconnect transmission. You can turn this
off, so you can continuously monitor a
channel with a weak transmission where
conversations are often disconnected.
Manual Access - lets you directly access any channel.
Liquid-Crystal Display - makes it easy to view and change programming
Display Backlight - makes the scanner easy to read in low-light
Flexible Antenna with BNC - provides adequate reception in strong signal
Connector areas and is designed to help prevent
antenna breakage. Or, you can connect an
external antenna for better reception.
Monitor Memories - lets you temporarily store up to 10
frequencies or talk group IDs.
Memory Backup - keeps the frequencies stored in memory for
an extended time if the PRO-94 loses power.
Three Power Options - lets you power the scanner using internal
batteries, external AC power using an
optional AC adapter/charger, or DC power
using an optional DC cigarette-lighter power
Key Confirmation Tones - the scanner sounds a tone when you perform
an operation correctly, and an error tone if
you make an error.
Battery Save - saves battery power when the scanner does
not detect any transmissions for more than 5
seconds when a channel is manually selected.
Battery Low Alert - warns you when battery power gets low.
Weather Alert Indicator - your scanner also functions as a severe
weather alert monitor.
Your scanner can receive these bands:
Range (MHz) (kHz) Transmission
29-29.7 5 10-Meter Ham Band
29.7-50 5 VHF Lo Band
50-54 5 6-Meter Ham Band

137-144 5 Military Land Mobile
144-148 5 2-Meter Ham Band
148-174 5 VHF Hi Band
216-224.9950 5 1-Meter Ham Band
406-420 12.5 Federal Government
420-450 12.5 70-cm Ham Band
450-470 12.5 UHF Standard Band
470-512 12.5 UHF "T" Band
806-956 12.5 Public Service "800" Band,
except cellular band
1240-1300 12.5 25-cm Ham Band
Your scanner might cause radio or TV interference even when it is
operating properly. To determine whether your scanner is causing the
interference turn off your scanner. If the interference goes away, your
scanner is causing it. Try the following methods to eliminate the
Move your scanner away from the receiver.
Connect your scanner to an outlet that is on a different electrical
circuit from the receiver.

Note: Mobile use of this scanner is unlawful or requires a permit in some
areas. Check the laws in your area.
Your scanner covers frequencies used by many different groups including
police and fire departments, ambulance services, government agencies,
private companies, amateur radio services, military operations, pager
services, and wireline (telephone and telegraph) service providers. It is
legal to listen to almost every transmission your scanner can receive.
However, there are some transmissions you should never intentionally
listen to. These include:
Telephone conversations (cellular, cordless, or other private
means of telephone signal transmission.)
Any scrambled or encrypted transmissions.
According to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), as amended,
you are subject to fines and possible imprisonment for intentionally
listening to, using, or divulging the contents of such a transmission
unless you have the consent of a party to the communication (unless such
activity is otherwise illegal).
This scanner is designed to present reception of illegal transmissions, in
compliance with the law, which requires that scanners be manufactured in
such a way as to not be easily modifiable to pick up those transmissions.
Do not open your scanner's case to make any modifications that could allow
it to pick up transmissions that it is not legal to listen to. Doing so
could subject you to legal penalties.
We encourage responsible, legal scanner use.
