Radio Shack PRO-2035 1000-Channel Programmable Home Scanner.

  • Channels: 1,000 channels

The scanner has the following special features:

  • Hyperscan - lets you scan and search up to 50 channels or steps per second.
  • Weather Band Key - scans ten pre-programmed weather frequencies to keep informed about current weather conditions.
  • Ten Channel-Storage Banks - you can store 100 channels in each bank to group channels so calls are easier to identify.
  • Monitor Memory - temporarily saves up to 100 frequencies located during a frequency search, letting you move selected frequencies to permanent channel storage later.
  • Priority Channel - you can set the scanner to check every 2 seconds so you do not miss important calls.
  • Auto Store - quickly finds and automatically stores active frequencies in channels, then searches for additional active frequencies while skipping previously stored channels.
  • TAPE OUT Jack - lets you connect an optional tape recorder to the scanner to record transmissions.
  • Rotary Tuner - lets you manually tune and select desired frequencies or channels.
  • Two-Second Channel Scan Delay - delays scanning for 2 seconds before moving to another channel so you can hear more replies.
  • Memory Backup - keeps channel frequencies stored in memory for up to 3 months during a power loss.
  • Lock-Out Function - keeps selected channels from being scanned,so you can skip over busy channels.
  • Direct Frequency Search - lets you scan for new and unlisted frequencies.
  • Sound Squelch - keeps the scanner from stopping on frequencies with only a carrier signal and no voice or other sound, so you can hear calls instead of static.
  • Backlit Display - makes it easy to view and change programming information.
  • Two Power Options - let you power the scanner from standard AC power (with the supplied AC power cord), or your vehicle's battery (with an optional DC cigarette lighter power cord).
  • This scanner is capable of Triple Conversion.
