Product Description

The RadioShack(tm) PRO-164 scanner, built by GRE of Japan, is essentially the GRECOM PSR-300 in a different skin. This model is a straightforward trunking scanner with a standard number of channels and banks. If you're in an area with trunking (EDACS(tm) or Motorola) and no or limited digital, this is a great choice for a handheld scanner.

The PRO-164 stores up to 1,000 frequencies. You can program alpha tags along with the frequencies and sub-audible tone codes so you'll know exactly whom you're listening to. Alpha-tag programming is best entered with software. See ARC300 on this site for your software options. Also hear storm reports before they are broadcast on TV or radio. These reports are provided by trained in-the-field storm spotters in your area. Signal Stalker II will jump to the nearest transmitting frequency in your area.

  • Store up to 1,000 frequencies
  • Covers police frequencies in most metropolitian areas
  • Hear storm reports before they are broadcast on TV or radio, delivered by local spotters
  • Searches for nearby frequency transmissions within approximately 1,000 feet of the radio
  • Program a name to correspond with the service so you can see at a glance who you're listening to
The neat stuff
  • Easy to read in low light or completely dark areas
  • Download frequencies from your computer to your radio scanner with optional software and patch cable
  • Clones with another PRO-164, 20-164 handheld or with the desktop version, PRO-163, 20-163

    Not metro area-friendly December 7, 2011
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Renton, WA United States  
    Very unfriendly in large metropolis, cannot follow APCO-25, easy to switch frequencies but hard to switch TGs. Can hold 1,000 freqs, 1,500 TGs and 150 TGs/bank. Only one TRS per bank. EDACS networked systems must be entered into separate banks which manual didn't say!

    If you live in a large metropolis, then STAY AWAY FROM THIS PIECE OF $**T. Get a Uniden DMA instead.
