Installing Your Scanner
You can mount your triple trunking scanner in your vehicle or use it as
a base station.
Setting Up a Mobile Base
You can place your scanner on a desk, shelf, or table to use it as a
base station. Because the speaker is on the bottom of the scanner,
you can use the mounting bracket to elevate your scanner off the
surface for better sound.
To you use the scanner on a flat surface:
1. Attach the three protective rubber feet to the mounting bracket.
Do not use them if you are mounting the bracket with
screws.
2. Slide the scanner into the bracket,
aligning the scanner’s side holes
with the holes in the bracket,
and then screw the mounting
knobs into the scanner.
Bracket Mounting
You can mount your scanner under or on top of the dashboard a
desk, shelf, table or other flat surface, using the mounting bracket.
1. Use the supplied mounting bracket as a template to mark
positions for the two mounting screws.
2. At the marked positions, drill holes slightly smaller than the
screws.
When drilling holes, avoid obstructions behind the mounting
surface.
3. Remove the paper backing from each
washer and stick one inside of each
bracket’s ear, aligning the washer’s hole
with the bracket’s hole.
4. Attach the mounting bracket to your
vehicle’s surface using the supplied
screws and lockwashers.
Dashboard Installation
If you are unsure how to install your scanner in your vehicle, consult
your automobile manufacturer, dealer, or a qualified installer.
To mount in your dashboard, you must connect an external
antenna and speaker.
1. Before installing, confirm your
scanner fits in the desired
mounting area and you have all
the necessary materials. Your
scanner requires a 2 x 71/8 x 5 5/16
inch (50 x 180 x 135 mm) space.
2. Remove the four rear screws and
pull off the black case before
installing your scanner.
x
3. Install the DIN sleeve into the
opening in your dashboard, lip
facing out.
4. Push out the top and bottom tabs to hold the sleeve firmly in
place.
5. Slide the scanner into the sleeve until it locks in place.
To remove your scanner from the
DIN sleeve, insert the two keys
straight into the scanner’s front
panel and pull the scanner out.
Connecting the Antenna
To connect an external antenna, always follow the installation
instructions supplied with the antenna. Use 50-ohm, RG-58, or RG-8,
coaxial cable. If the antenna is over 50 feet from the scanner, use RG8 low-loss dielectric coaxial cable. If necessary, RadioShack carries a
variety of adapters.
To attach the supplied antenna:
1. Align the antenna slots with the
tabs on the scanner, and slide
the antenna into place.
2. Turn and push down until the
antenna locks into place.
Warning: Use extreme caution when
installing or removing an outdoor antenna. If the antenna starts to
fall, let it go! It could contact overhead power lines. If the antenna
touches a power line, touching the antenna, mast, cable, or guy
wires can cause electrocution and death. Call the power company to
remove the antenna. DO NOT attempt to do so yourself.
Powering Your Scanner
You can power your scanner from a wall outlet, or from your vehicle’s
battery.
You must use a power source that supplies 12V DC and
delivers at least 600 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive
and its plug must fit the scanner’s DC 13.8V jack. The supplied
AC adapter and DC power cord meet these specifications.
Using a power source that does not meet these specifications
could damage the scanner or the adapter.
Wall Outlet
1. Connect the tip of the supplied AC adapter to the DC 13.8V jack
at the rear of your scanner.
2. Plug the AC adapter into your wall outlet.
To prevent electric shock, do not use the AC adapter’s
polarized plug with an extension cord, receptacle, or outlet
unless you can fully insert the blades to prevent blade
exposure.
To avoid injury, do not connect the provided power adapter to
a ceiling outlet.
10
Vehicle (Power Socket)
To power your scanner from a 12V power source in your vehicle, such
as a cigarette-lighter socket, you need a 12V, 600 mA DC cigarettelighter adapter (not supplied), available at your local RadioShack
store.
1. Insert the adapter’s barrel plug into the scanner’s DC 13.8V jack.
2. Plug the adapter’s other end into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter
or power socket.
When you use a cigarette-lighter adapter, you might hear
electrical noise from your engine while scanning. This is
normal.
Vehicle (Direct)
1. Disconnect the cable from your vehicle battery’s
negative (-) terminal.
2. Ground the black wire of the supplied DC power cord
to your vehicle’s chassis. The grounding screw must
make complete contact with your vehicle’s metal
frame.
3. Connect the red wire of the supplied DC power cord
to a voltage source that turns on and off with the
ignition switch, such as a spare accessory terminal in
your vehicle’s fuse box.
4. Insert the power cord’s barrel plug into the scanner’s
DC 13.8V jack.
5. Reconnect the cable to your vehicle battery’s negative (-)
terminal.
11
Headphones and Speakers
You can plug headphones or speaker (neither included) into your
scanner.
To use headphones, connect the plug into the headphone jack
on the front panel. Headphones automatically mute the scanner’s
speaker.
To use external speaker, connect the plug into the EXT SP jack on the
rear panel.
Even though some earphones/headphones let you hear some
outside sounds when listening at normal volume levels, they still can
present a traffic hazard.
To protect your hearing, follow these earphone or headphones
guidelines:
• Do not listen at extremely high volume levels. Extended highvolume listening can lead to permanent hearing loss.
• Set the volume to the lowest setting before listening. Turn on
the scanner, and adjust the volume to a comfortable level.
• After you set the volume, do not increase it. Over time, your ears
adapt to the volume level, so a volume level that does not cause
discomfort might still damage your hearing.
• Do not wear headphones while driving. This can create a traffic
hazard and is illegal in some areas.
Keytones and Brightness
Your scanner features a backlit keypad and display for easy viewing
and sounds a tone each time you press a key. 12
To set the keytone:
1. Turn on the scanner. “Multi-system Trunking Scanner” appears.
2. While “Multi-system Trunking Scanner” appears, press 1 to turn
on the keytone or 2 to turn it off.
To change the backlight mode:
Repeatedly press DIM to adjust display backlight brightness from
Dark, Light off, or Light.
Delay
Sometimes, several seconds can pass between transmissions. To
avoid missing a reply, a delay is automatically set for each channel.
The scanner stops for 2 seconds after a transmission stops before it
resumes scanning or searching.
To turn the delay on / off:
1. Press ./DELAY. DLY appears if the delay is on.
2. To turn on the delay, press ./DELAY again. “dly” appears if the
delay is off.
Squelch and Attenuator
The squelch and attenuator control the scanner sensitivity. If you hear
a hissing sound, the scanner will remain on the current channel.
To set squelch:
1. Turn off the scanner and turn SQUELCH fully counterclockwise.
2. Turn on the scanner. You should hear a hissing sound. If you set
the squelch precisely at the threshold where the hiss stops, the
scanner may pick up unwanted or very weak transmissions. To
prevent this, set the squelch past this threshold.
3. Turn the SQUELCH clockwise to decrease the scanner’s
sensitivity, turn counterclockwise to increase its sensitivity.
13
With the attenuator on, the scanner might not receive weak signals.
You can reduce interference using two attenuator modes:
• Global – (Default) The attenuator setting is applied to all
channels, bands, or groups.
• Normal – Lets you set the attenuator in each channel, band, or
group.
You cannot set the attenuator while scanning.
To set the attenuator mode:
1. To set Global mode, press FUNC and then ATT. On the display
“G” appears.”
2. To set the attenuator for each channel, press FUNC and then
ATT. On the display “G” disappears. For each channel:
• On – Press ATT. “A” appears.
• Off – Press ATT again. “A” disappears.”
Scanner Setup
A frequency, expressed in kHz or MHz, is the tuning location of a
station.
Your scanner saves frequencies to channels and groups the channels
into banks. The scanner’s 10 banks each hold 100 channels (1,000
channels total).
The scanner is preset to the most common AM or FM receive modes
for each frequency range. However, some amateur transmissions
may operate in a different mode. If the transmission sounds weak or
distorted, you may have the channel set to the wrong receive mode:
AM –Amplitude Modulation, primarily used for aircraft, military,
some amateur and government transmissions.
14
FM – Frequency Modulation, used for most public safety
transmissions, broadcast, business, and amateur radio
transmissions.
CT – FM transmissions with Continuous Tone Coded Squelch
System (CTCSS)
DC – FM transmissions with Digital Coded Squelch (DCS)
MO – Motorola Trunking System
ED – EDACS Trunking System
LT – LTR Trunking System
If you change the receive mode using MODE key, the scanner
shows the receive mode for small caps (ex. fm, am, ct, or dc). If
you want to change the default setting, press FUNC then press
MODE.

Signal Stalker II
Signal Stalker II provides a powerful tool to rapidly detect, monitor
and save frequencies of nearby or high-power transmissions. Signal
Stalker II resembles more expensive portable frequency counters, but
provides many advantages over typical portable frequency counters.
Signal Stalker II is more sensitive than portable frequency counters
and will detect transmissions at a greater distance. Signal Stalker II
rapidly searches the RF spectrum in 1 MHz segments. If it detects a
signal, Signal Stalker II searches in finer steps until the signal source is
found.
Signal Stalker II can search all frequencies, or you can define
frequency ranges, to avoid ranges with constant activity, such as
paging or broadcast transmitters.
To use Signal Stalker II:
1. Hold the Signal Stalker button (
) for approximately 1 second.
2. To change the scanned band (All Band or Police/Fire), press
FUNC then Signal Stalker (
see Appendix D.
). For a list of Signal Stalker Bands,
3. To turn off a bank, press the bank or group number while Signal
Stalker II is active.

Locking Out Frequencies
When you lock out frequencies during a search, the scanner
continues searching, but ignores the locked out frequencies. You
can lock out up to 50 frequencies in each bank. If you try to lock out
more, “L/O Memory Full!” appears.
While using Signal Stalker II, you can lock out 150 frequencies if
searching all bands and 50 frequencies while searching PubSafety
frequencies. If you lock out 5 frequencies within a 1 MHz segment,
the scanner will skip that segment in subsequent sweeps.
If you lock out all the frequencies in a search bank and only
that search bank is activated, “All ranges Locked out!” appears
and the scanner does not search.
Signal Stalker II still performs a fine step search for locked out
signals. Signal Stalker II will not stop on the signal, but scan
may take longer.
To lock out a frequency:
When the scanner stops on a frequency, press L/OUT.
23
To review and unlock frequencies:

Trunking Setup
Instead of transmitting on a specific frequency, trunking systems
choose one of several frequencies during a 2-way radio transmission
and simultaneously transmit a Talk Group ID that identifies the 2-way
radio user. This allows trunking systems to allocate fewer frequencies
to multiple 2-way radio users.
Defining a Trunking Bank
You can define any of the 10 banks as a trunking bank, but each bank
can only scan for one system: Motorola, EDACS (GE/Ericsson), or LTR
(EF Johnson).
Trunking banks can contain both trunking and non-trunking
channels.
To define a Trunking Bank:
1. Press PROG, then press TRUNK to enter the ID program mode.
2. Press FUNC, then use  or  to select a bank.
31
3. Repeatedly press MODE to select a trunking mode (Motorola,
EDACS, or LTR).
4. Press PROG.
Trunking Modes
In Closed mode, the scanner stops only on transmissions with saved
and unlocked Talk Group IDs. This lets you focus a scan on the
frequencies you have identified, ignoring other transmissions.
In Open mode, the scanner stops for transmissions on any unlocked
channel. This lets you search for Talk Group IDs that you can then
save.
While scanning, “–” appears for Closed mode and “+” appears for
Open mode under the channel storage bank’s number. When the
scanner stops on a channel,”OPEN” or “CLOSED” appears.
To set Open or Closed mode for a bank:
1. Press MAN.
2. Use  or  to select a bank.
3. Press FUNC then DELAY. “Bank OPEN” or “Bank CLOSED”
appears.
Motorola Trunking Setup
Motorola systems can allocate as few as five frequencies to up to
several thousand groups of users in three categories:
• Type I – User groups are assigned to fleets. To scan, you must
program a fleet map into the scanner.
• Type II – The Talk Group ID contains 4 or 5 digit numbers.
• Hybrid – Combines Type I and Type II formats.
32
Fleet Maps
For Motorola Type I and hybrid systems, you must program a fleet
map before saving Talk Group IDs.
To program a fleet map:
1. Press PROG then TRUNK.
2. Press FUNC, then press  or  to select the bank.
3. If necessary, repeatedly press MODE to select “Motorola.”
4. Press FUNC, then press 8. “Size Code Setting” appears, with

Base and Offset Frequencies
To receive Motorola VHF and UHF system transmissions, you must
program applicable base and offset frequencies. In the 800 MHz
trunking band, you can select a base frequency (normal or offset),
but in the 900 MHz trunking band, you do not need to set the base
frequency.
You can get information about base and offset frequencies from
www.trunkscanner.com.
UHF-Lo (406-512 MHz)
To program Motorola base and offset frequencies:
1. Press PROG then TRUNK to enter the ID program mode.
2. Press FUNC, then press  or . The bank number increases or
decreases by one. If you hold down  or , the bank number
increases or decreases continuously.
3. If necessary, repeatedly press MODE to select “Motorola.”
4. Press FUNC then 2. The screen displays the Base, Offset, and
Step with the B in Base blinking.
5. If necessary, use the number keys to enter a new Base frequency
and press ENT. The O in Offset blinks.
6. If necessary, use the number keys to enter a new Offset frequency
and press ENT. The S in Step blinks.
If you try to program an offset frequency in the UHF-Hi bands
(806-960 MHz), the scanner ignores the entry.
34
7. While the S in Step blinks, repeatedly press  or  to select the
step number: 5.0, 6.25, 10.0, 12.5, 15.0, 18.75, 20.0, 25.0, 30.0,
31.25, 35.0, 37.5, 40.0, 43.75, or 50.0 kHz, then press ENT.
8. Press PROG.
UHF-Hi (806-960 MHz)
To program 800 MHz Motorola trunking:
1. Press PROG then TRUNK to enter the ID program mode.
2. Press FUNC, then press  or . The bank number increases or
decreases by one. If you hold down  or , the bank number
increases or decreases continuously.
3. If necessary, repeatedly press MODE to select “Motorola.”
4. Press FUNC then 3. NORMAL appears.
5. Press  or  to select NORMAL or SPLINTER and press ENT. If
you are uncertain about the base frequency, use NORMAL.
The base frequency in NORMAL is 851.0125 MHz. The base
frequency in SPLINTER is 851.0000 MHz. . If you cannot receive
with the NORMAL setting, change to SPLINTER.
EDACS Trunking Setup
EDACS (GE/Ericsson) systems transmit Talk Group ID data on a
dedicated control channel. Scanning requires clear reception of the
control channel at all times, so EDACS systems generally have a
smaller usable area. You can manually select the data channel, but an
external antenna can greatly improve EDACS scanning.
If you are programming frequencies for an EDACS system, you must
store them in the Logical Channel Number order (usually listed as
LCN#).
35
LTR Trunking Setup
LTR systems, assign each frequency a Home Repeater (HR) number,
and are frequently programmed with unique ID codes for each radio.
LTR Talk Group IDs are organized in a specific order, and to scan,
you must program the frequencies in HR order. LTR systems are used
primarily by businesses, such as taxicabs, delivery trucks, and repair
services.
LTR systems use a Home Repeater as part of their Talk Group ID.
To save a correct Home Repeater:
1. Save the LTR channels in any order.
2. Set the bank to Open mode.
3. Manually select LT channels and watch the LTR data on the
display.
Your scanner displays the LTR Talk Group ID and a number
preceded by “R.” The “R” number is the Home Repeater
number for the transmission.
4. The assigned Home Repeater channel must equal the Home
Repeater number. For example, R12 must be programmed into
Channel 12.
Searching for Talk Group IDs
If you tune the scanner to an active Motorola control channel, the
Motorola System ID and the approximate control channel message
decode success rate appears. This helps you identify the system and
the reception quality. When the scanner decodes control channel
data from a Motorola system, COTRL appears on the display.
36
To search for Talk Group IDs:
1. Set the bank to Open mode.
2. Press SCAN. The scanner scans through all unlocked channels in
the active banks.
3. When the scanner stops on a transmission, press TRUNK. The
scanner displays the ID location:
Sub-bank.
ID Location
0-4
00-29
Example: 2-01
If the ID has already been saved, “ID was saved” appears.
If you try to store more than 150 talk group IDs in a bank,
“Memory Full!” appears.
Saving a Talk Group ID
Each of the 10 banks contains 5 sub-banks that each hold 30 Talk
Group IDs. (You can save up to 1,500 Talk Group IDs.) When the
scanner receives a trunked transmission, it searches the associated
sub-bank for the Talk Group ID to decode data for Motorola, EDACS
(GE/Ericsson), and LTR (EF Johnson) systems.
To define a Talk Group ID:
1. Press PROG, then press TRUNK to enter the ID program mode.
2. Press FUNC, then use  or  to select a bank.
3. Repeatedly press MODE to select a trunking mode (Motorola,
EDACS, or LTR).
4. Repeatedly press TRUNK to select the sub-bank.
5. Press  or  to select the location where to store the Talk Group
ID.
37
6. Use the number and decimal point keys to enter the Talk Group
ID:
For ED Talk Group IDs, you can enter either a decimal or AFS
code. The default setting is decimal ID entry.
To use the AFS code, press FUNC then 2, “AFS Format” appears
for about 2 seconds. You can then enter the AFS code.
If you make a mistake, “Invalid ID value” appears when you press
ENT. Go back to Step 3.
If you entered an ID that is already stored in same bank, “Dupl.
ID of X-XX appears.” To store the ID code, press ENT. To cancel,
press CL.
7. Press ENT.
For information about adding text tags to a Talk Group ID, see
“Text Tags” on Page 43.
Deleting Talk Group IDs
You can delete an individual Talk Group ID or all Talk Group IDs in a
bank.
To delete a Talk Group ID:
1. Press PROG then TRUNK.
2. Press FUNC,  or  to select ID memory.
3. Press FUNC then CL.
To delete ALL talk group IDs in a bank:
1. Press PROG.
2. Press TRUNK to enter a Talk Group ID memory mode.
3. Select a Talk Group ID bank using FUNC,  or .
4. Press FUNC then 6. “Clear entire list? Press 1 to clear all, any
other key aborts” appears.
38
5. To clear the Talk Group IDs, Press 1. To cancel the deletion, press
any key except 1.
Saving Trunking Channels
Trunking channels are defined using the same procedure for nontrunking channels. In each bank, you can mix channel modes,
including conventional, but you can scan only one trunking mode at
a time, either EDACS, Motorola, or LTR.
Because Motorola control frequencies change daily, you should save
all the control frequencies in the same bank. If you do not know the
control frequency, save all the Motorola frequencies in the same
bank.
EDACS frequencies are assigned Logical Channel Numbers (LCN)
and organized in a specific order. To scan correctly, you must
program the frequencies in LCN order, starting with Memory 01.
Trunked modes (MO, ED, and LT) can only be selected for
frequencies above 137 MHz that use trunking operations.
For information about adding text tags to a channel, see “Text
Tags” on Page 43.
Trunk Scanning
In each bank, you can mix conventional channels and frequencies
in a bank. However, you can scan only one trunking mode at a time,
either EDACS, Motorola, or LTR.
Press Scan. The scanner scans through unlocked channels in active
banks. To focus on trunk scanning, you can turn off banks that contain
only conventional channels. To change the scanning direction, press
 or .
39
For Motorola channels, your scanner displays the Talk Group ID
memory location, received frequency, voice channel (VC), and the
Motorola ID number.
Your scanner automatically mutes the audio while it decodes
control channel data. However, we recommend you turn SQ
clockwise and leave it set to a point just after the hiss stops.
This lets the scanner quickly acquire the data channel.
For Motorola trunking systems, more than one talk group
can transmit at a time. If you manually tune the scanner, you
will hear the talk group on that channel, but the display will
alternate between all active Talk Group IDs.
For EDACS and Motorola (above 406 MHz range), the scanner
monitors the control channel between each transmission to
identify talk groups. For some Motorola (under 512 MHz range)
and LTR systems, the scanner uses the subaudible data sent
with each transmission to identify talk groups.
Trunking Delay
You can set a Talk Group ID delay separately from the channel delay.
When active, the scanner checks the Talk Group ID for the delay time
when a transmission ends.
To set a Talk Group ID delay:
1. Press FUNC then ./DELAY while you are programming the Trunk
Group ID. “ENTER key saves. 2.0 seconds” appears.
2. Use  or  to set ID Delay: None, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5,
or 4.0 seconds.
3. Press ENT.

Birdie Frequencies
All scanners have signals created inside the scanner’s receiver. These
birdie frequencies can interfere with transmissions on the same
frequencies. If the interference is not severe, you might be able to
turn SQ clockwise to omit the birdie.
To find the birdies:
1. Disconnect the antenna and moving it away from the scanner.
Make sure that no other nearby radio or TV sets are turned on
near the scanner.
2. Start a search of every frequency range from its lowest frequency
to the highest. When the search stops, often without any sound,
this is a birdie.
3. Make a list of all the birdies in your scanner for future reference.
46
Initializing the Scanner
If the scanner’s display locks up or does not work properly after
you connect a power source or install batteries, you might need to
initialize it.
Caution: This procedure clears the scanner’s memory. Initialize the

Service and Repair
If your scanner is not performing as it should, take it to your local
RadioShack store for assistance. To locate your nearest RadioShack,
use the store locator feature on RadioShack’s web site (www.
radioshack.com), or call 1-800-The Shack (800-843-7422) and follow
the menu options. Modifying or tampering with the scanner’s internal
components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its
warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it.
47
Scanning Legally
Your scanner covers frequencies used by many different groups
including police and fire departments, ambulance services,
government agencies, private companies, amateur radio services,
military operations, pager services, and wireline (telephone and
telegraph) service providers. It is legal to listen to almost every
transmission your scanner can receive. However, there are some
transmissions you should never intentionally listen to. These include:
• telephone conversations (cellular, cordless, or other private
means of telephone signal transmission)
• pager transmissions
• any scrambled or encrypted transmissions
According to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA),
as amended, you are subject to fines and possible imprisonment
for intentionally listening to, using, or divulging the contents of
such a transmission unless you have the consent of a party to the
communication (unless such activity is otherwise illegal).
This scanner is designed to prevent reception of illegal transmissions,
in compliance with the law which requires that scanners be
manufactured in such a way as to not be easily modifiable to pick up
those transmissions. Do not open your scanner’s case to make any
modifications that could allow it to pick up transmissions that it is not
legal to listen to. Doing so could subject you to legal penalties.
In some areas, mobile use of this scanner is unlawful or requires a
permit. Check the laws in your area. It is also illegal in many areas to
interfere with the duties of public safety officials by traveling to the
scene of an incident without authorization.
We encourage responsible, legal scanner use.

Appendix A: Glossary
Frequency – The signal (expressed in MHz) used by broadcasting
radios. To find active frequencies, you can use frequency guides
available from your local RadioShack store, frequency lists posted on
the Internet, or your scanner’s search function.
Bank – A storage unit for a group of channels. A channel contains
one frequency, and a bank can hold up to 100 channels.
Channel – A programmable memory locations for a single frequency.
49
Talk Group ID – A simultaneous trunking transmission that identifies
2-way radio users. This allows trunking systems to allocate a few
frequencies to multiple 2-way radio users.
Sub-bank – Each bank has an associated Talk Group ID sub-bank.
In Closed mode, the scanner only stops if a transmission has a Talk
Group ID saved in the associated Talk Group ID sub-bank. In Open
Mode, the scanner stops on all transmissions, except those you lock
out.
Appendix B: Search Banks
Note: All scanners tune by steps. Your RadioShack scanner uses steps
consistent with the latest US or worldwide standards. If you enter a non-valid
step frequency, any scanner will tune to the next step. Some scanner designs
do this without showing the correct step in the display. This scanner will
show the actual tuned frequency in the display. Because steps are so close
together, the audio quality will not be affected by the offset.
