Re: Ludlow, MA - DMR

Maggie O'Connor
 

Gary - You're right re threshold not at the Dept Level. I set it to Manual.

Joel - Re - "Try changing the NFM to Digital using Sentinel" NFM shows up at the frequency level as Auto in Sentinel. Not sure which choice I want here - and/or if I'm in the right place. I'm at the Channel Level (in Sentinel) and Modulation is set to Auto. There are several choices here - but not say "Digital" - so not sure which one to choose.

So far still not getting anything.

Thank you, as always.

For trunk systems, I think it's at the Site Level. For conventional it's
set at the System level.

For the 436HP, I don't see threshold levels at the Department Level.

Also, make sure Threshold is set to "Manual" not "Automatic."

Check the digital threshold level. For DMR I usually use 8.

If color code 5 is set, it has to be digital only for the audio type.
The color code option is only available after that is selected.

You will hear all the TGs regardless. If you want to program it as OFT,
you can select specific TGs to hear and use ID SCAN.

Yes you can import just one city into a FL.

If they are using conventional DMR, you have two choices:

1. Keep it as-is but change the audio type to DIGITAL ONLY and program
the color code.

2. Program it as a one-frequency-trunk and then you can select the
talkgroups you want to hear.

If they upgraded from analog to DMR AND upgraded to a trunked
system, you would have to program that as a new system type.

Re: Amplified Speaker

Someone  made a comment We  do not need an Amplified  Speaker  a regular external  one will work  .Yes  but the reason I did it on my SDS-100  The audio on VHF/UHF Analog  if I turned  just the scanner up to hear it better  it had a loud hiss in it .I am Old and  have some hearing loss from being young dumb and stupid  it the US Navy  on Air Craft Carriers and Law Enforcement ranges  and not wearing hearing protection .

 

So  with the amplified  Motorola  speaker I can barely turn the  audio up and it is loud and clear no hiss and the battery last longer too,  It does not have to be a Motorola  But that’s what I like ,  Uniden and others  make Amplified speaker for scanners  and CB and Ham Radios , Here is a PDF  info on the Motorola http://www.mmccs.com/mmarc/n0ss/motorola_amp_spkr_mods_04jul2009.pdf

 

Only problem I have had over the years was sometimes  I would get Alternator  whine , I will not say generator  that was a long time ago and tube type Scanners would  not be to bad  and I will  give my age away LOL

 

Happy Scanning

 

Don KA9QJG

 

PS  If  you do not feel comfortable  in wiring something your expensive  to you scanner  Buy something  ready to go ..My reason was more about removing the annoying hiss noise out ..

How is it wired to your scanner?

Is it powered by a separate power source?

I have a Motorola speaker that is not powered. No model number, looks like yours, but only has 2 wires coming from it.. When connected to my SDS100, the battery (even plugged into the charger) last less than an hour. I need to find a way to add a small amplifier to the speaker.

Yep. Earphones are typically 1000ohms, most non piezo speakers like HSN4031A are 8ohms
Wont get any volume out of an earphone socket if you stick it in there.

Basic ohms law applies....

The HSN4031A is a non-amplified speaker.  Will not get driven well from a headphone jack.  It will work fine with a radio that has an EXTERNAL SPEAKER jack.

I use something like this on my radios: HSN4031A There is plenty of level without an additional amp. I'm sure that Motorola spent a lot of time and money on engineering a speaker that is not only efficient, but good for voice. If this doesn't have enough level it may be time to check the batteries in your hearing aids.

As I said before, my personal favorites are the amplified Motorola or GE speakers like the image that was recently posted (by someone else).

I have a Motorola speaker that is not powered. No model number, looks
like yours, but only has 2 wires coming from it.. When connected to my
SDS100, the battery (even plugged into the charger) last less than an
hour. I need to find a way to add a small amplifier to the speaker.

Where does it show that speaker (below) as an AMPLIFIED speaker?  It looks like a very simple 5-watt, 8-ohm speaker.  There is nothing so show amplification or power.

This is a great little amplified speaker. Just connect the power lead to the something powered off the ACC position of your ignition switch and ypu should be good to go.
