The RadioShack PRO-79 200 Channel VHF/Air/UHF
Handheld Scanner lets you scan conventional transmissions,
and is preprogrammed with search 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 programming.
This scanner gives you direct access to over 25,000 exciting frequencies,
including those used by 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:
Four Service Banks — let you search preset frequencies in separate
ham radio, police/fire/emergency, aircraft, and marine
banks, to make it easy to locate specific types of calls.
Display Backlight — makes the scanner easy to read in lowlight
Duplicate Channel Alert — warns you when the frequency you
are storing already exists in memory.
Lockout Function — lets you set your scanner to skip over
specified channels or frequencies when scanning or searching.
Memory Backup — keeps the channel frequencies stored in
memory for about an hour in the event of a power loss.
Ten Channel-Storage Banks — you can store 20 channels in
each bank (200 total channels), letting you group channels so
you can more easily identify calls.
20 Monitor Memories — let you temporarily save up to 20 frequencies
you locate during a search, so you can move selected
frequencies to channel storage later.
Direct Search — lets you search for new and unlisted frequencies
starting from a specified frequency.
Weather Alert — the scanner automatically sounds an alert
when it receives a weather emergency signal, providing more
complete information about weather conditions in your immediate
Weather Band Key — scans seven preprogrammed weather
frequencies to keep you informed about current weather conditions.
Wired Programming — you can connect your scanner to a personal
computer and program frequencies into the scanner from
the computer using an optional cable and software.
Note: The necessary cable and software, and additional
information about using your personal computer to program
your scanner, are available at your local RadioShack store.
Scan Delay — delays scanning for about 2 seconds before
moving to another channel, so you can hear more replies that
are transmitted on the same channel.
Priority Channel — lets you program a channel as the priority
channel. As the scanner scans, it checks the priority channel every
2 seconds so you do not miss transmissions on that channel.
HyperSearchä and HyperScanä — let you set the scanner to
search at up to 50 steps per second (in frequency bands with 5
kHz steps) and scan at up to 25 channels per second, to help
you quickly find interesting broadcasts.
Manual Access — you can directly access any stored channel
by entering that channel’s number.
Key Lock — lets you lock the scanner’s keys to help prevent
accidentally changing the scanner’s programming.
Liquid-Crystal Display — makes it easy to view and change
programming information.
Supplied Flexible Antenna with BNC Connector — provides
good reception of strong local signals. You can connect an external
antenna with a BNC connector to the scanner for improved
reception of distant/weaker signals.
Key Confirmation Tones — the scanner sounds a confirmation
tone when you perform an operation correctly, and an error tone
if you make an error.
Three Power Options — you can power the scanner from internal
(rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries) or external AC
or DC power (using an optional AC or DC adapter).
