Radio Shack PRO-163


The PRO-163 is a 1000 channel scanner sold by Radio Shack in the United States. Al from Texas shared the information with me how to modify this scanner with a discriminator output.

The receiver IC is a TK10931. The unfiltered baseband audio can be found on pin 12.

TP4 connects to pin 12 on the circuit board. Follow the next steps to make the discriminator output:
  • Solder a 10 k resistor to TP4
  • Install a 3.5 mm mono socket in the scanner's back
  • Connect the resistor's other lead with the signal solder lug of the chassis socket.
The housing is connected to ground, so the chassis socket is grounded as well.
