: The PRO-30 uses *two* sets of batteries. It uses convential
: AA cells to power the audio, RF, and IF stages and uses small
: "hearing aid" style batteries for memory backup. Make sure
: you replace those batteries, too.
: Locate & identify transmitters in your area with RadioMap(tm)
Those little button batteries for the memory are located inside the other
battery compartment. Open the compartment, remove the holder for the 6 x
AA cells and inside is a small panel one can slide over and then remove.
When replacing these batteries try to minimise touching them with your
fingers or clean off the surface. Body oils can oxidise on them a bit and
reduce contact. Replace that little panel and slide into place. Replace
AA cell holder and re-enter freqs! TTFN John
