INTRODUCTION
Your new Realistic® PRO-2005 Desk-Top Programmable
Scanner lets you in on all the action! Your scanner gives
you direct access to over 196,000 frequencies in nine action-packed radio bands including police, fire, ambulance,
aircraft, ham radio, and transportation services, in addition
to normal FM broadcasts, TV sound, and CB. You can
select up to 400 channels for your scanner to scan
through, and you can change your channel selection at
any time.
The secret of your PRO-2005 scanner is a customdesigned microprocessor-a computer-on-a-chip-that allows you to instantly select any frequency without having
to change any crystals. This microprocessor also gives
your scanner special functions, such as:
Liquid Crystal Display-shows the channel and the frequency you have selected, as well as other information.
Two-Second Scan Delay-helps to prevent your losing
replies on a channel while you are scanning.
Memory Backup-keeps the channel frequencies stored in
your scanner's memory if a power failure occurs.
Lock-Out Function-lets your scanner skip
specified channel or group of channels.
Ten Channel Storage Banks-allow you to group your
stored frequencies so that calls are easier to identify.
Priority ChanneJ-;helps to keep you from missing important calls on the selected channel.
Direct Frequency Search-allows you to scan through
every available frequency to find interesting broadcasts.
Monitor Banks-allow you to save up to ten additional
channels located during a frequency search.
Sound Squelch- keeps the scanner from stopping on a
channel that is only broadcasting a carrier, with no voice or
other sound.
Your PRO-2005 scanner covers a wide frequency range:
•
25 -520 MHz
•
760 - 823.945 MHz
'.
851 - 868.945 MHz
•
896 -1300 MHz

PREPARATION
BATTERY INSTALLATION
Your scanner uses a 9-volt battery for memory backup. For
longest operation and best performance, we recommend
an alkaline battery, such as Radio Shack's Cat. No. 23-553.
For best results, replace the battery every six months.
"BATT" flashes in the display and beeps sound when the
battery is low or not installed. When this happens, replace
or install the battery immediately.
1
Remove the battery compartment
cover by loosening the screw on
the back panel.
~~
2
Caution: Your scanner can keep channels stored in its
memory for a few minutes even with the AC cord unplugged and the 9-volt battery disconnected. But, to avoid
loss of memory information, do not unplug the scanner
when replacing the battery.
In addition, never leave a weak or dead battery in your
scanner; even "leakproof" batteries can leak damaging
chemicals. Battery life is about six months when household
AC power or automotive DC power is off for a prolonged
period of time.
Remove the old battery, then snap
in a new 9-volt battery.
r~
3
Install the battery compartment
cover.

_POWER SOURCES
You can power your scanner from the following sources:
•
A standard AC outlet
•
Your vehicle's battery (using an optional DC power
cable)
AC Power
Operation
...
Car Battery Operation
You can power your scanner from your vehicle's cigarette
lighter socket, provided the vehicle has a 12 volt, negative
ground system. To use DC power, you need Radio Shack's
DC power cable (Cat. No.270-1534B).
Connect the DC power cable's plug to the 13.8 volt jack on
the rear panel. Then, plug the DC power cable into the
cigarette lighter socket of your vehicle.
Connect the scanner's AC power cord to a standard AC
outlet.
Note: Mobile use of scanners might be unlawful or require
a permit in some areas. Check with your local authorities.
8
CONNECTING THE ANTENNA
We have provided a telescoping antenna with your scanner. This antenna is adequate for strong local signals. To
install it, simply screw it into the hole on the top of the
scanner.
To install an outdoor antenna:
1. Select a location for the outdoor antenna that is as high
as possible.
2. Following the instructions that came with the antenna
and its mounting hardware, mount the antenna.
3. Connect the antenna to the scanner using coaxial cable.
Always use 50 ohm coaxial cable. For lengths over 50
feet, use RG8 low-loss, dielectric coaxial cable . .

CONNECTING AN EXTENSION SPEAKER
In a noisy area, an extension speaker (such as Radio
Shack's Cat. No. 21-549), positioned in the right place,
might provide more comfortable listening. Plug the speaker
cable's 1/8-inch mini-plug into your scanner's EXT SPKR
jack.

UNDERSTANDING CHANNEL STORAGE
BANKS AND SEARCH BANKS
Your scanner can store up to 410 frequencies. You store
each frequency in either a permanent memory, called a
channel, or a temporary memory, called a monitor. The
scanner has 400 channels and ten monitor memories.
To make it easier to identify and select the channels you
want to listen to, channels are divided into ten groups of 40
channels. Each group of channels is called a bank. Perhaps the best way to explain the use of memory banks is
through a practical example.
Suppose you want to monitor four different agencies:
police, fire, ambulance, and aircraft. As a rule, each agency
has several different frequencies they use for different purposes. The police might have four frequencies, one for
each side of town. To make it easier to quickly determine
which agency you are listening to, you could progmm the
police frequencies starting with Channel 1 (Bank 1). Then,
start the fire department on Channel 41 (Bank 2), ambulance service on Channel 81 (Bank 3), and aircraft frequencies on Channel 121 (Bank 4).
Now, when you want to listen to only fire calls, it is simple
to turn off Banks 1 and 3 through 10 so that only Bank 2 is
scanned. You could also use this feature to group the
channels by city or by county. Simply press the number
16
corresponding to the bank you want to turn on or off. The
bar below the number in the display shows that bank is on.
Your scanner also has ten temporary monitor memories.
You use these memories to store frequencies temporarily,
while you decide whether to save them in one of the permanent channels. This is handy for quickly storing an active frequency when you are searching through an entire
band. See "Searching for Active Frequencies."
When you are in the monitor mode, the ten numbers at the
top of the display represent the ten monitor memories. The
flashing number shows the current monitor memory.
In addition, your scanner has ten search banks. You can
use these banks to store your selected limit search ranges.
See "Searching for Active Frequencies."

We designed your scanner to adjust itself for the band
modes and frequency steps for each frequency range.
Default settings are as shown below.

WFM: Wideband FM for normal FM broadcasts or TV
sound.
NFM: Narrowband FM for action radio bands, police, fire,
ambulance, ham radio, and so on.
AM: For aircraft band, C8, and so on.
22
Normally, the preset mode/step works within each band as
shown above. However, for some of the ham radio, military
aircraft (225-400 MHz), and TV audio (WFM) bands, you
must change the mode or step manually. To change the
band mode, press [MODE] when your scanner is in
manual mode. To change the frequency step, press
[STEP] in search mode. Note that when you change the
preset modes/steps, the corresponding indicator flashes to
show you that you changed the default setting.
When you want to return to the default setting, press
[RESET]. The display stops flashing.
Keep in mind that improperly setting the modes or steps
can cause poor reception. When you listen to an FM
broadcast or TV sound in the NFM mode, the sound is very
distorted. If you monitor police band in WFM mode, the
sound is masked by noise. Or if you use 5 kHz or 12.5 kHz
steps to search for FM broadcasts or TV sound, the search
might stop on the sideband of the frequency. In that case,
press [.] or ['Y I to get the center frequency. If you use 50
kHz steps for NFM band, you might miss the frequencies
between the 50 kHz steps.
USING THE RESTART SWITCH
scanner start scanning again if the transmission contains
no sound (carrier only without modulated signals).
The scanner's display might lock up the first time you plug
in and turn on your scanner, or if the battery is left out for
an extended period of time. If the display locks, use a
pOinted object, like a paper clip, to press and release the
restart switch while power is on.
If your scanner stops at a frequency that has no sound,
press [SOUND SQUELCH]. The indicator lights. If the
scanner detects no sound within 0.5 seconds, it goes to
the next transmission.
To clear all the memories, be sure the scanner is turned on
and :
1. Press and hold [CLEAR] .
2. Us!ng a pointed object, press and release the restart
SWitch.
3. After confirming that the display goes blank release
[CLEAR].
'
SETTING THE VOLUME AND SQUELCH
Turn VOLUME clockwise and SQUELCH counterclockwise
until you hear a hissing sound. Then, slowly turn
SQUELCH clockwise until the noise stops. Leave VOLUME
set to a comfortable listening level.
If the scanner picks up unwanted weak transmissions, turn
SQUELCH clockwise to decrease the scanner's sensitivity
to these signals.
USING THE SOUND SQUELCH SWITCH
If the scanner stops at a transmission during scan, search,
or priority modes, the [SOUND SQUELCH] switch lets the
When the scanner receives a frequency that contains
sound, it halts at the frequency. If the sound ceases, the
scanner stays on the frequency for 5 seconds, and
resumes scanning. If the carrier stops, the scanner begins
to scan immediately if the delay function is off, or after 2
seconds if the delay function is on.
To cancel sound squelch, press [SOUND SQUELCH]
again. The indicator goes off.
.
Note: If a frequency contains a transmission with low
modulation, the sound squelch circuit might not work
properly.
SCANNING THE CHANNELS
To begin scanning channels, just press [SCAN] . Your
scanner scans through all the channels that you have not
locked out of the banks that are turned on. You must set
SQUELCH so that you do not hear the hissing sound between transmissions. Be sure to read the following sections
to get the full benefit from the special features of your
scanner.
23
USING THE DELAY FEATURE
SETTING THE SCANNING SPEED
Many agencies use two-way radio systems that might have
a period of several seconds between a query and a reply.
To keep from missing a reply, program a delay on the
channels you identify as operating this way. To program a
delay, manually select the channel, and press [DELAY].
"DELAY" appears in the display. Now, when you are scanning through channels, your scanner pauses for two
seconds after the completion of each transmission on that
channel before resuming scanning.
Your scanner has two different scanning speeds - 8 channels per second and 16 channels per second. To switch
between the two scanning speeds, press [SPEED] during
scanning.
Some radio systems, especially those above 800 MHz, use
a special "trunked" system. In these systems, the transmitter selects an available frequency each time the operator
keys the radio. Therefore, it is possible for the query to be
on one frequency and the reply on another. To ensure the
best possibility of hearing the full reply, you want the scanner to begin scanning immediately when the first transmission ends. In this case, select the channel manually and
ensure that "DELAY" is not in the display. If "DELAY" is indicated, press [DELAY] to turn off this feature for that channel.
24
LOCKING OUT CHANNELS
You can increase the effective scanning speed by locking
out channels that you have not programmed. Manually
select the channel, and then press [LlOUT], so that "LOCKOUT" appears in the display. This is also handy for locking
out channels that have a continuous transmission, such as
a weather channel. You can still manually select locked-out
channels for listening.
To disable the lock-out function, manually select the channel and press [LJOUT]. Or, press [LIO RVW] in manual or
program mode to call out locked-out channels one by one.
Then, press [LIOUT] again.
Note: You can lock out as many channels as you like. But
there must be at least one channel that you have not locked out in each bank.
TURNING BANKS ON AND OFF
As explained in "Understanding Channel Storage Banks
and Search Banks" your scanner splits the 400 channels
into ten banks of forty channels each. The small bars under
the numbers at the top of the display are the bank indicators. You can turn each bank on and off, so that all the
channels in a bank are either scanned or locked out. In
scan mode, press the number key for the bank you want to
turn on or off. If the bank indicator is on, you have turned
on the bank and the scanner scans all the channels within
that bank that you have not locked out. If the indicator is
off, the scanner does not scan any of the channels within
that bank. You can ' still manually select any channel in a
bank, even if you have turned off the bank. You cannot turn
off all banks - one must be turned on.
USING THE PRIORITY FEATURE
You can scan through all your programmed channels, and
still not miss an important or interesting call on a specific
channel. Simply program your desired channel as the
priority channel, and turn on the priority feature by pressing [PRI] during scanning. The scanner now checks the
priority channel every two seconds, and stays on the channel if there is activity.
To program a priority channel, simply press [PROGRAM),
and the desired channel number. Then, press [PRI) . "P" appears in the display whenever the scanner is set to the
priority channel. You can only program one channel as the
priority channel. If you program a new channel as the
priority channel, the previous channel you chose is
automatically cleared.
Note: Channel 1 is automatically designated as the priority
channel the first time you turn on your scanner.
MANUALLY SELECTING A CHANNEL
You can continuously monitor a single channel without
scanning. This is useful if you hear an emergency broadcast on a channel and do not want to miss any of the
details - even though there might be periods of silence - or
if you want to monitor a channel that you have locked out.
To select a channel to monitor, just press [MANUAL), and
enter the channel number. Then, press [MANUAL] again.
Or, if your scanner is scanning and has stopped at the
desired channel, just press [MANUAL] once. Pressing
[MANUAL] additional times causes your scanner to step
through the channels one at a time.
DIMMER
Press [DIMMER] to turn the display's backlight down or
up.

A GENERAL GUIDE TO SCANNING
BIRDIES
CROSS MODULATION
Birdies are the products of internally generated signals that
make some frequencies difficult or impossible to receive. If
you program one of these frequencies, you hear only noise
on that frequency.
When using an external antenna, a strong frequency close
to the reception frequency might cause cross modulation
(like cross talk). Set the An switch on the back panel to -10
dB to minimize cross modulation.
If the interference is not severe, you might be able to turn
SQUELCH clockwise to cut out the birdie. The most common birdies to watch out for are listed below.

Reception on the frequencies covered by your scanner is
mainly "line of sight." That means you usually cannot hear
stations at your listening location that are located beyond
the horizon.
During summer months, you might be able to hear stations
in the 30-50 MHz range located several hundred or even
thousands of miles away. This is due to summer atmospheric conditions. This type or reception is unpredictable,
but often very interesting!
One very useful service is the National Weather Service's
continuous weather broadcasts. These broadcasts contain
weather forecasts and data for the area around the station,
plus bulletins on any threatening weather conditions.
These stations use three frequencies : 162.40, 162.475, and
162.55 MHz. In most areas of the country, you can receive
one of these frequencies.
GUIDE TO THE ACTION BANDS
With the right frequencies programmed into your scanner,
you can monitor exciting events. With a little investigation,
you can find active frequencies in your community. We can
give you some general pointers, and you can take it from
there. Please use caution and common sense when you
hear an emergency call. Never go to the scene of an emergency - it could be the most dangerous thing you could
ever do.
Find out if there is a local club that monitors your
community's frequencies. Perhaps, a local electronics
repair shop that works on equipment similar to your scanner can give you channel frequencies used by local radio
services. A volunteer police or fire employee can also be a
good source of this information.
As a general rule on VHF, most activity concentrates between 153.785 and 155.98 MHz and then again from
153.73 to 159.46 MHz. Here you find local government,
police, fire, and most such emergency services. If you are
near a railroad yard or major railroad tracks, look around
160.0 to 161.9 for signals.
In some larger cities there has been a move to the UHF
bands for emergency services. Here, most of the activity is
in a spread of 453.025-453.95 MHz and again between
456.025-459.95 MHz.
In the UHF band, mobile units and control units associated
with base and repeater units occur in the overall spreads of
456.025-459.95 and 465.025-469.975. The repeater units
operate 5 MHz lower (that is, 451.025-454.95 and 460.025464.975 MHz) than the base units. This means that if you
find an active frequency inside one of these spreads, you
can look 5 MHz lower (or higher, as the case may be) to
find that radio service.
A new technology is now available that allows the use of
the 800 MHz band for many services. Some public safety
agencies use trunked radio, introduced to business systems in 1979. With as many as twenty channels available,
the transmitter automatically selects an unused channel
each time it is activated. Several agencies can share such
a system without causing interference. This system can
also be programmed to provide secure communications
for selected units, with unselected units unable to hear the
message.
Frequencies in different bands are accessible only at
specific intervals. However, the frequencies that you can
store into your scanner's memory are in 5 kHz, 12.5 kHz,
or 50 kHz steps. Your scanner automatically rounds the
entered frequency down to the nearest valid frequency. For
example, if you try to enter a frequency of 151.473, your
scanner accepts this entry as 151.470.

Unlike the lower bands, frequencies in
the 800 MHz band are not allocated
by the FCC to specific services such
as Police, Fire, Ambulance, and so
on. In each area, the channels are
licensed on a first come, first served
basis. There are two categories for
licensing: Public Safety and Industrial.
Systems using one to five channels
are conventional. Five channel systems might use trunking, but all systems with more than five channels
must use trunking.

You might discover some of your regular stations on another frequency that is not listed. It might be what is known as an
"image." For example, you suddenly find 453.2750 also being heard on 474.8750. To see if it is an image, do a little math.
Take the intermediate frequency of 10.7 MHz and double it. Then, subtract it from the "new" frequency. If the answer is the
regular frequency, you have tuned to an image. Occasionally you might get interference on a weak or distant channel from
a strong broadcast 21.4MHz below the tuned frequency. This is rare, and the image signal is usually cleared whenever a
broadcast on the actual frequency is in progress.
29
MAINTENANCE
Your PRO-2005 is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for the
PRO-2005 so that you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the PRO-2005 dry. If it does get wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids can contain minerals
that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use only fresh batteries of the recommended size and type. Always remove old or weak batteries. They can leak chemicals that destroy electronic circuits.
Handle the PRO-2005 gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases
and can cause the product to work improperly.
Use and store the PRO-2005 only in normal temperature environments. High temperatures can
shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the PRO-2005 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Wipe the PRO-2005 with a dampened cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use
harsh ch'emicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the PRO-2005.
Modifying or tampering with the PRO-2005's internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate the PRO2005's warranty. If your PRO-2005 is not performing as it should, take it to your local Radio Shack store. Our personnel can
assist you and arrange for service if needed.
30
BEFORE YOU CALL FOR HELP
The frequencies stored in the PRO-2005 memory are held by the 9 V battery. You should replace the battery every 6 months.
Use only alkaline type, such as Radio Shack's Cat. No. 23-553.
If You Have Problems ...
We hope you don't - but here are some suggestions.
