Re: Alkaline Cells – A Comparison To NiMH And NiCds

Douglas Dersch
 

I've been using NiZn for years. 2800mWh. Current ones are from 2016 in there and they seem to be lasting a long time in years and in run down. They are particularly good for that last 30% of their charge where they still have plenty of power to run the electronics. (I do write the year on them when I buy them to keep track of the older ones.) I also use them in microphones as they last a good number of hours where other rechargeables drop below the 1.5 volt really fast.

So one vote for NiZn.

You can make the stream private and can monitor from both smart phones and computers.

Hi Jim,
Thanks for the response.  I am happy to hear of your results with the SDS 100.  I may be trading the 436 up for that.

Quick update on the SDS100 I LOVE IT. I have a 396XT which as you know is ph1.  I live just outside San Diego and the Regional Comm sys recently upgraded to ph2 so I couldn't follow anything. The SDS100 has much better digital sound and I have none of the simulcast issues I had with the 396. The stock antenna seems to do well even with the 800mhz . I am very happy with the SDS100

Jim,
I will be interested to see how it works for you.  I just purchased the 436HP in December to listen to the Ontario County, NY 700mHz system which is Phase 2.  It works ok but the simulcast system does not always play well.  I may have to trade up to the SDS100. I recently found that my older 396XT seems to work as well and it is only Phase 1.  I have a couple of small mag mount antennas I have set up in the house (NY prohibits scanner use in a vehicle) and it helps a bit, but often not any better than the stock antenna.

Re: Rechargeable Batteries

Hi All, another positive testimonial for the Eneloop cells here.  I had a set for my BCD436HP and they were great.  I switched to the highest capacity Ni-MH Amazon branded batteries and the Eneloops were noticeably better.  

When these Amazon cells flame out for good I will definitely be getting another set of the Eneloops...

That would be SANYO Eneloop, 
but for the last few years they have been branded Panasonic because Matsushita bought up Sanyo. 
I have been using Sanyo Eneloop cells for nearly ten years and I'm happy with them. 
The Panasonics are probably even better.

Someone else on another list suspected that the site "prezhost.com" may be a bot or spam site. Since these sort of "helpful" blips have been popping up on multiple lists I would avoid any contact. Perhaps the moderators should look a bit closer at the situation.

It would be nice if the linked article actually covered what the title states. There is a discussion about NiMH batteries and a little specifics on AA size, but nothing else. There is supposed to be a table that shows more, but that does not show up (tried three different browsers). No links to other pages that have the rest of the battery types.
What there is however is a ton of advertisements.

Re: SD Change

Joe M.
 

I've had OEM cards that last long, and some that don't. A quality replacement SD card should last a pretty long time. The larger the card, the more recordings it will be able to hold. If you don't record, you should be able to get away with a smaller card just fine.

Here is a 5-minute video setting up a new card. The new one in the video is 128GB, but the procedure is the same. You can skip the formatting part if your card is FAT and start at about the 1:45 mark. The last part shows card installation in an SDS100 and initial operation. You can skip those, too.

It will be faster if you use a card reader rather than the scanner.

It means you probably have Quick Keys assigned and not enabled in the profile. You can just enable them using the keypad or enable them in your profile then write that to the scanner.
