Win96 is a software program for the Radio Shack Pro-96 Digital Trunking Scanner and the Pro-2096 "mobile" version. It allows you to read data from the scanner, make changes via the GUI, and write the modified data back. Win96 can also manage the PRO-96's "Virtual Scanner Folders". You can maintain a "library" of data files to be downloaded or shared. Alternatively, you can import and export comma-delimited (CSV) text files.

During Win96's design and creation, its author worked closely with the PRO-96's development team. Due in part to this relationship, Win96 allows full control of all known PRO-96 features, including several that are not documented in the scanner's manual. These "extra" features include, (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • Virtual Scanner Management
  • Extended Trunking Tables
  • "Battery Low" level control
  • Changing the scanner's power-on display text
  • Open up extended frequency ranges (minus cellular)

Integration with the RadioReference.com Web service

Win96 has the native ability to access the RadioReference.com database directly using the RadioReference.com Web Service. It is done thru a simple Win96 Web import:

Setting UHF Offsets and Base Frequencies

UHF systems require at least 1 base frequency and offset to trunk correctly. The example below shows the Washington DC system, which requires 2 base frequencies and seperate offsets.
