Re: SDS Radios
The SDS series literally scans slower, but you also have people making unfair comparisons, scanning different things, with different reception styles between the BCDx36HP series and the SDS series. One setting in the SDS with the filters can make the scanner seem like it's scanning at half-rate. Unfortunately, I don't really see many members, of groups, being very specific and can see some of the inherent and then passed on, fallacie. The BCDx36HP series won't get this person a Simulcast Digital Distortion beating scanner, instead a scanner that can constantly fail on the most important of replies. Most of the Eastern Shore is flat, and while the Non-Simulcast "ASR" Sites might not need the SDS almost all the rest of the Sites and the 2 Systems he mentioned have Simulcast used exclusively. Be a real bear for him to spend $450 to find out he need to spend another $60 to return it to spend $550 once and get the right product. Now if he wants to listen to Baltimore fire dispatch on 46.46mHz he could spend as little as $15 to get the old Analog stuff around here that is left.

To Dewey: I keep reading in these threads that the SDS’s scan slower. Just how much slower and is it recognizable enough to make a difference?
