Yes, I was looking at the one on EBay for $91US. Good price compared to the other higher priced ones there.


Re: Recording

Kev Myles
 

Thanks for all the reply’s. I’ll check some more sources in my area again and see if I can come up with a something  I can use. I used to have an old portable cassette recorder years ago that was vox operated, but don’t have it around anymore.

On some systems the Control Channel changes frequencies, sometimes everyday, sometimes at midnight.

Re: SDS100

harvey morse
 

Just as an FYI:- I had to send my SDS100 back to Uniden for repair. Whenever I turned it on, it would download the appropriate databases then immediately make a rhythmic open and close squelch sound. To make sure it wasn’t some spurious station I hit the “avoid” button. That did not make any difference, but the channel did advance. If I hit “avoid” ten times it would move the channel ten times then stop and begin the rhythmic squelch. I then increased the squelch to full on (#10) and moved to a multitude of different locations, none of which made any difference.

 

I consider myself lucky, as my one-year warranty is up in May!!

I made a few adjustments and it seems to be working a lot better now. Unchecked the boxes in Limit search from P25, NXDN, etc., set the Adc and Dac to default values. I set the dsp to default 64.

On control channels you hear nothing. You see the color
code, and usually the slot flashes between 1 and 2.

Re: No sound on search results.

Ok, I see. I though there would be a tone, or noise of some sort. I noticed in the TRX1 manual on page 61 that the ADC and DAC default settings are+0dB and DSP Level Adapt is 64 so I just reset it to those values.

Re: BCT15X P25 Upgrade

Joe, I don’t have an SDS200, but the specs I quoted are as shown on the Amazon web page for the SDS200.

The 200 specs cannot be correct. The 200 is the same

width as the 996 series. It is 1.5 times the height.

 

Is is something on the order of: 7 in (W) X 8 in (D) X 3 In (H).
