Myles Standish State Forest 151.37

Lots of radio and signal strength testing this morning, perhaps a new repeater. A much stronger signal here in North Mashpee than previously.

Re: Base Antenna

If you do not need low band, the DPD Omni x is an option for a multi-band antenna. I use one with a Jim M75 pre-amp works well for me.

Re: Recommendations/Opinions

Thank you. I have two RS 2006 sitting on a closet shelf, but the scan rate is so slow. One vote for the 898T. Thank you

Recommendations/Opinions

Any thoughts from the members on what is the best Uniden Radio for scanning AM Air?? I am making this inquiry because I am not satisfied with AM on my SDS200.
Choices are BC780, BC785D, BC895XLT, BC898T, 996XT and the BCXT15X. Thank you all.

FYI, I heard traffic on 158.175 this a.m. Loud and clear in North Mashpee, about 4.5 miles from the power plant. Nothing heard on the other frequencies to date.

I will try wide normal and see what happens. I live near JBCC and notice the difference on the AM band. Thank you for the input.

Re: SDS200 Observations

I filed a complaint with Uniden about the less than stellar analog reception of my new SDS100 and two SDS200. Here is their reply. I am 72 years of age, and have been purchasing Uniden radios since day one. To me, this has all the smell of a bait and switch. The analog limitation was not disclosed b...

Re: SDS200 Observations

Does Uniden and/or SNE announce when a firmware update is available for the SDS200?? I have been running two SDS200's for several weeks. The firmware upgrades have taken care of the issues I have had. However, AM air does not seem to perform as well as the 996XT.

Does anyone have any new information?? I was told by a town worker that the new radios are installed and being used. However, I hear nothing on 854.4625 and 854.1125. However, recently I am hearing what sounds like a "trunk system control" sound on 854.7125. Very strong at my location in North Mashp...

Interesting, I have not heard them on it until recently as I have I monitored Freetown for ages on the frequency without a tone.

Re: Army Corp of Engineers

Unknown to me about a simulcast. I have heard unit from the N.B.H.B. previously. It is worthwhile to sit on 173.4375 when another Nor-ester is predicted.

It appears yesterdays storm resulted in the closing N.B. Hurricane Barrier. This morning I heard comms confirming the reopening of the barrier and a report on sea conditions at the East end of the canal. All comms on 173.4375. digital.

For the last several days, I have been hearing Hyannis Fire on 460.625 repeater. I also notice that they seem to be experimenting with several different alert tones.

SDS100 QUESTION

So, I have the 100 programmed the way I want it. However, is there a quick way to enter the CTCSS/DCS tone when they are flashing (displayed) in the bottom right of the scanner display? It is not the same process as the the 996XT. Thank you.
