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
