Default Scanner won't pick up my GMRS radio--why?

i just programmed my new PRO-95 with the GMRS frequencies, but when i
key my GMRS radio, even from across the room, the scanner stops on the
freq but produces only static and a barely readable signal. any idea
why that might be? shouldn't i be picking up the signal perfectly?

my two Vertex VX-400 radios, which i'm using for GMRS, communicate
perfectly with each other and with several off-the-shelf FRS/GMRS
radios.

thanks for any ideas why this might be happening!

can the pro-95 hit the freq exactly?
frs is an odd split not 12.5 spacing.

Possibly your overloading the scanner transmitting so close.Try it with
them further apart.Another guess do you have the attenuator on for that
channel?

Be advised that gmrs has PL tones you may want to consider turning off before you transmit and try to receive on scanner
