I was messing with my Radioshack Pro-96 scanner today and found out that it's capable of working in the new 700 MHz digital police band! On the back of the scanner, there is a list of bands... Take a look at where the 800 MHz band starts "406 - 512 and 806 - 960 MHz" (says nothing about 700MHz). Type 770.0 MHz into your scanner and it works! I can now listen to my local police around the 797 MHz area.
I also found that you can go lower than 25 MHz! Just type 24.0 into the scanner and your able to receive the 12 meter ham band!
My scanner was not modified in any way. I bought it new about a year ago and it has been updated to the the 1.4 DSP firmware. I'm starting to think it might have had something to do with the firmware update, because it was never able to work in these bands before the update.
