Hello, I recently purchased scancat lite for windows in order to program my RS Pro-94. After reading (and re-reading) the help section, I must say that, I have no idea what I'm supposed to do in order to program this scanner. Is there a tutorial that I missed? Or can you give me a "layman's" (read:
IF YOU HAVE SCANCAT--LITE-PLUS
A MR. SCANNER FCC CD
In the c:\Program File\Scancat-Lite-Plus folder
there is a 6 part Turtorial titled "Mr Scanner tutorials...."
Also read below...
idiot's guide) explanation of how to do this?
It would really be great if you could help.
First I presume you have installed Scancat-Lite-Plus
And I see you have the Mr.Scanner Pub Safety CD/Combo Package
IF YOU HAVE MR.SCANNER CD
- Put in the CD
- At the menu choose the first Option to search the database
- At Top menu, pick a search - Search for a City
Once the results are on the screen
- at top menu pick "Export"
Save the file to THIS folder (if that is where your scancat was installed)
- pretend the file you save is called "Test.NFF"
IF YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED A FREQUENCY SEARCH FROM NATIONAL COMMUNICTIONS
- Unzip the Downloaded file
- copy the frequency file to this folder
- Start up Scancat-Lite-
() Choose the radio at "Select Radio" on splash screen menu
> Pick Radio and the commport
> If you don't know port number choose one
> If it doesn't work you will have to pick "next one"
if radio doesn't react when you program it.
and so on until you find correct one.
() Then Choose "Program Radio"
MOST RADIOS FROM RADIO SHACK SUPPORT BOTH
READING FROM RADIO
LOADING TO RADIO.
SO IT IS STRONGLY SUGGESTED TO READ THE RADIO'S CONTENTS
BEFORE PROGRAMMIN TO IT, THAT WAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE A BACKUP.
() Go to top menu bar -
> Choose FILES
> Load File
> Load SOURCE file (Nff file)
() White database will open on top
() Select records that you want to "use"
() Select MENU bar's COPY
> Paste Frequencies to Lower Database
Once you have a "grid" populated, you can move to any of the others (ten), and do the same thing.
- Then Go to TOP Menu, "Load/Read Radio"
- Choose LOAD Selected Bank
- It should send the data to the radio
If not - pick a different port, eventually it will work
once you have the correct comm port.
Go to Here
There is a folder for MrScanner Tutorials
