Pro 96 question

Eddie Carroll
 

Just a quick question. I have still functioning Pro-96, but I need to get it re-aligned as it has drifted off frequency and doesn't receive as well as it did years ago and I also believe the BNC connector has become loose from the board. Years ago I would attempt the repair, but with my bad eyes and shaky nerves I would not even try.  Do you think Uniden would still service this dinosaur, the cost of such repair, or is it even worth it? A new scanner is WAY out of my range and so far most of my area is still monitorable on the 96.

Well, to help the OP solve his problem, yeah, it does. May mean the
difference between "They went encrypted, you won't be able to hear
them" and "Oh, they just changed the talkgroup ID numbers. You need to
reprogram your radio."

Nearly all (if not all) the Unidens mute P25 encryption.

Since this is the SDS100 group, I assume we are talking about the SDS100. To be honest, I don't remember for sure, but I recall it goes silent. Mine is at home, so I can't test.

Then you will have to use the menu to

set the scan selection to scan them.

 

MENU

SET SCAN SELECTION

SELECT LISTS TO MONITOR

(scroll through them and turn on the ones you want to monitor)

Re: SDS Radios

Wayne Smith
 

Bob,

And yes, you'll likely need access to a computer running Windows (Parallels on MacOS--at least prior to the M1 chip--should be OK too), at least for the use of EZ-SCAN (Whistler) and/or Sentinel (Uniden) for non-keyboard (or large scale) programming of the unit.  I've had relatively good experiences with recent versions of WINE over Linux (and also older Uniden software, such as for 396/996 programming, under Windows 10) but most folks on RadioReference aren't keen on that approach.  And I don't use it for firmware updates for either manufacturers just because I don't trust the USB/serial connection at that connection layer (I'm paranoid--I suspect that knowledgeable others have gotten it to work).

Someone else can correct me, but I don't think either the manufacturers or third-parties (e.g., Butel) have released binaries for Linux, *BSD, or MacOS for their scanning programming software.

73's,
Wayne, N6LHV
