I have a Pro - 95 scanner - which - by way of a jack on its side - you can
hook up to another Pro-95 to duplicate the programing. I come across a
Pro-97 which "appears" to have the same capability - by virtue of a similar
jack on the side of it.

I don't have any info on the Pro-97. Does anyone know - if you could
conceivably - program a Pro-97 by way of a Pro-95? Yeah, I could try it, but
don't want to risk damaging either - or deprogramming either as they
currently stand. Also, if it is possible to duplicate the 95 onto the 97 -
what on the Pro-97 - would be the commands to do so? I can't recall off the
top of my head the Pro-95 commands - but have the book here for it - to look
up as needed. Are they the same - or?

Thanks!

The answer is NO, you cannot clone a PRO-95 to a PRO-97.

These scanners "clone" from one to another by sending the memory map of
one to the other.  The formats of the memory maps in the two models are
different, and the cloning process will not work.

That - is why I asked! I kinda thought it would be "too" easy! I have no
book or anything for the Pro 97, so you know how that goes! Time to start
letting my fingers get accustomed to the key pad.

Thanks! Much appreciated.

You can copy the settings/ channel from one to the other using external
software: for example Win97 and Win95 from Starrsoft
<<http://www.starrsoft.com/>>. As far as I know you'd need to have both
programs on your computer, however both programs are available for a
30-day trial period. You'd download the pro-95 settings to Win95, then
you can easily copy-and-paste them into the Win97 file and upload the
resulting file to the Pro-97.

I'll bet if you explain what you want to do on the RadioReference
software forum: <http://www.radioreference.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=89>

you'll get all the help you need.

Actually, it's no big deal. I got the scanner - and seen the jack on the
side of it - wondered if the clone could be done from the PRO 95-97 -
instead of programming in all the freqs by hand. My PRO - 95 is programmed
already - was just looking to maybe save some time.

Thanks!

Don't know about the Pro 95 but my local Radio Shack guys have cloned
a Pro97 by a Pro96 and visa versa.

I might give our local shack a call tomorrow to see if they have anything
going on to make this job a tad quicker. Programming a 1000 freqs, gets a
bit tiresome.

Thanks

The guys at my RS connected a cloning cable between the Pro 97 and Pro
96.  I don't know if they used any software such as the  Win 96/97
software to do the files transfer.  I have both the Win 96 and 97
programs and they are well worth the price of both.  

Here's an online manual for the Pro97 which is far better than the one
that came with the scanner.

Yeah that may be his best option.   Plus the Win 95 program is now
freeware so he'd only be out the cost of for Win 97 which is $25 and
in my opinion a bargin at the price.

Check out the link  http://www.starrsoft.com/ that "Northe" provided.
It may be your best and easist option to go with downloading the free
Win95 software and then getting the trial Win 97 and transfering your
date that way.      

Good luck.   :)

Sarah,

Thanks for all your replies. I appreciate the help. I'm going to attempt to
get this thing going......... The "manual" will come in handy, the software,
I'll look into.

Did you know that the manual is available online from Radio Shack?

I do now! Thanks!

Actually, I've not visited "Radio Shack's" web site in a while - the last
time I looked for info - I couldn't find it - so - I just tend to look
elsewhere.

Thanks again!

mostly lurk on this group  but the folks  here are  knowledgeable and
more than willing to help.    :)

Yeah I assumed they used some sort of software.  I'm curious what it
was and I'll ask on my next visit to the store .   :)
