I 'mount' mine on a console using a simple

That way I can see and control it easily.

Replacement touchscreen for Homepatrol 2

John Boyle N8JJO <n8jjo@...>
 

Hello, does anyone know where I can get a replacement display for a Homepatrol 2?

Uniden shows out of stock. I have emailed Uniden twice with no response.

I have serched online and no luck so far.

My display is working, but has several short black horizontal lines (which I suspect happened from dropping the unit).

Thanks. John N8JJO

Hi Doug,


In 1989 I bought the AR 900 handheld and in 1984 I bought the AR2001. I never liked the "sloppy" squelch action of them. So I never bought another AOR product after that.


I did build an external keypad with real switch type buttons for the AR2001. Made using that radio much easier.


The Comm Sq guys where I was stationed were amazed that I had a HH rx (the AR900) that could hear their TACAN identing and carrier growling at 1gHz. They wanted to buy it and I told them to get a gvmt contract to buy a few as essential test/repair equipment. LoL

My first scanner was an AOR2001, which I sold to a mate to upgrade to the AOR2002, which I still have for its wide coverage. Since the AOR2002, I have had uniden scanners and my latest one is the UBCD536-PT, which I am very pleased with.

Friends,

Since we are doing bios, here's mine.

In 1970, at the age of 9, I bought my first receiver.  It was a portable
radio with AM/FM/VHF-Lo/VHF-Hi and no squelch (argh!).  I had to upgrade
in the next couple of years to a Radio Shack "Patrolman" tunable because
it had UHF-T band (for LA City Fire and eventually LA Police).  At one
time, I had more than a dozen crystal scanners.  I wrote my first
article for the RCMA Journal in 1978; it was a program (in BASIC and in
Fortran) that generated the specific details on how to program the
BC-101 for the proper 12.5kHz steps in the 162-174 band.  I was
eventually on the RCMA Board of Directors and ran the annual survey for
a few years.  I'm an active member of the Southern California Monitoring
Association now.  I've helped coordinate radio work for three parades,
including the Tournament of Roses and Hollywood Christmas Lane Parade.

My favorite listening has always federal and military communications
(yes, I know, that's mostly in the past).  At one time I had VOX
cassette tape recordings of three presidents (Nixon, Ford, and Carter)on
non-secure calls; two of them on Echo/Foxtrot (UHF, air) and the other
on Yankee/Zulu (VHF, limo).  Since the early 2000s, many of the business
listings, especially for trunked business systems for Southern
California, on RadioReference originated from me.  I'm a regular at
local air shows.

The most transformative radios I ever had were the BC-210 and the
BC-100.  The most useful radio I've ever owned still is the AOR-3000A. 
I've had well over 40 scanners/receivers and have about half of them
still in working condition.

On the amateur radio side, most of my present focus is on the AREDN Mesh
network at 2.4GHz and above.

MaryLou: 

I agree, take a GOOD course. Both the ARRL and Gordon West courses are excellent. STUDY the material. You will use that material for as long as you are involved in electronics. 

The starting license is the Technician license. Then comes the General and finally the Extra license. While studying for the Technician license, look at the General license. You will see how one license builds upon the previous license. 

I have had an Advanced ham license for over 50 years. I also hold a First Class Radio Telephone license which I got over 50 years ago. What I learned back then while in college, I used throughout my career in electronics. Again, study and learn the material. Do NOT try to just memorize answers to some test.

I don't suggest taking the practice tests until after you have done some serious studying. A lot of people just learn the answers to the test but don't really learn anything otherwise. That is why I suggesting studying first. My Tech class is a 24 hour course, and that is just the class time, not counting on your own study time. Everyone passes.

Speaking as an Asst. Police Chief during the Nextel era, we had several issues that caused us to prohibit their use.
  1. As mentioned, they were not recorded.
  2. We found officers were communicating with them when they were intentionally trying to avoid dispatch, usually for some “unofficial” purpose that could cause a problem.
  3. I do think that at one point, you could do a Nextel Group transmission, but I’m not positive.
  4. We were able to get ID numbers and see who communicated with who after a dispatch transmission, then we tried to figure out why it was being done. No audio, just the connected ID’s. We did this on our own walkie’s also, as some officers were using a talk around channel to intentionally bypass dispatch, then we decided to record it.
  5. Legitimate media is allowed to monitor police transmissions to the point where they can request and will get a radio with encryption, that they can listed to. Transmitter is disabled.
  6. In an emergency, other than the direct contact, nobody else could offer back-up or assistance with Nextel, until someone informed Dispatch.
  7. Under the new FCC guidelines, other than the common 10 codes such as 10-4, agencies that have not gone to plain English will not receive certain types of Federal funding because 10 codes and “Sinal Codes” are not universal, and in a national or even statewide emergency, radios can be linked together but then the officers would not be able to understand one another’s transmissions..
  8. It would seem to me, that because of #7 above, encryption might prohibit funding for the same reason as the 10 codes.
  9. It all comes down to officer safety, litigation, officer liability and departmental liability.

Hello MaryLou,

I don't suggest taking the practice tests until after you have done some serious studying. A lot of people just learn the answers to the test but don't really learn anything otherwise. That is why I suggesting studying first. My Tech class is a 24 hour course, and that is just the class time, not counting on your own study time. Everyone passes.

Anyone interested in ham radio I would strongly suggest ( and highly recommend )

It not only teaches theory but how to pass the test in a way that 99.9% of the people can comprehend and remember. 

You can do it on line, home course, books, CD,  or even attend a class in person. 

It is a great hobby!

Hello MaryLou,

I don't suggest taking the practice tests until after you have done some serious studying. A lot of people just learn the answers to the test but don't really learn anything otherwise. That is why I suggesting studying first. My Tech class is a 24 hour course, and that is just the class time, not counting on your own study time. Everyone passes.

We get a lot of clear nights out here in the fresh mountain air, I try to help watch the stars and let you know when I see them aligned!

Where to start, 11 years in the Air Force from 1970 to 1981. I was a Electronic Tech working on B52’s Defensive Fire Control system on the aircraft . Then I cross-trained into B52 Defensive Fire Control system and Electronic Warfare Simulators for the rest of my career

After the Air Force I worked the following places.

Control Data (MN): Worked On intelligent Disk Drives for use in Navy Destroyers 

Star Technologies (MN): Worked with designers of String Array Processor systems for Medical Imaging and  Oil Exploration

Pyramid Technology (CA): Multi Processor Mini Computers (Multi processor was a new technology in the early to mid 1980s)

Strataratcom/Cisco (CA): Some of the first WAN routers In the early 1990s also one of the first companies to develop Voice Over IP. The company was bought out by Cisco Systems.

Amber Networks/Nokia (CA): I joined this company after I was asked by one of the founders that I worked with Stratacom and Cisco. Amber developed Edge Routers that interface between Cell Pone sites and the Internet.

I got laid off from Nokia in 2004. Hunted for a job for 3 months and no luck. Just to let everyone know, there is AGE Discrimination. I was 53 years old and almost all of my hair was pure white. I heard every excuse in the world why I didn’t get the job I was applying for.

So I said, so long California, even throw I am a native California, I absolutely hate California, going clear back to the 1970's. I now live in Wyoming in a town with a population of 976. 7000 foot elevation, clear blue skies and you can reach up and touch the star’s. Yes it can get very cold here, it helps keep the riffraff out. With the Virus going around, I would not be any other place then here.

As far as Jobs since leaving Silly Cone valley, Gas station convenience store clerk, Lead TSO, TSA screener, clerk in a Hardware/Napa store. And after all the years if working I’m retired and enjoying life. I do a little computer repair on the side for a little extra spending cash.

My first scanner was a Heath Kit, 8 channel rock bound (crystals) and scanned kind of slow. I have owned or still own anything from Radio Shack, Whistler, GRE and Uniden. I still have all those brands today except GRE. I did a rough count and I think I have 10 to 15 scanners floating around the house. Ad on that, another 10 short wave receivers of one kind ore another. I hardly have a place for the HAM Gear.

Got my Ham License when I was overseas 1976. Even though they have issued a bunch of KG6 calls in California my KG6JIY is an official Guam Call. I got it just before they changed the Call Letters to the system used today.
