Getting Started with your PRO-94, PRO-94 A/B
From The RadioReference Wiki
Welcome to the Getting Started article for the Pro-94. This scanner, whose firmware is an Uniden clone, evolved somewhat before it was discontinued. The PRO-94 A can trunktrack and scan conventionally within 1 pass, while the PRO-94B can be programmed via a PC (however, not controlled, contrary to the Easier to Read manual). Only 1 app is known to support the PRO-94B, as indicated below.
Newcomers often find programming a scanner to be a daunting task. This article links to several resources to help you get started. Note that anything in blue is a link.
The Nuts and Bolts
- If you're a newcomer, you've probably already discovered that there's a huge amount of terms that seem unfamiliar to you. Our Glossary has lots of these terms, along with definitions. Just click on the term you wish to view.
- When looking at frequencies in our database, float your mouse over the column header, and you should get a balloon with a brief description of the terms and abbreviations that are used there.
- The biggest hurdle for many is the concept of trunking. Our Trunking Basics article will get you started, as well as this PDF file written by UPMan. Note that you will need Adobe Acrobat or a compatible reader (such as Foxit) to read it.
- These scanners can't be upgraded for any of the newer protocols that are appearing; these include Project 25, DMR, MOTOTRBO, EDACS Provoice and NXDN
- Easier to Read PRO-94 Manual
- Easier to Read PRO-94 A/B Manual
- Much of the programming protocols were borrowed from the Uniden BC-245, minus the PC control. See the The BC245 Trunking FAQ for information on programming trunk systems.
