Memorial Day Weekend

This Memorial Day weekend is a time to reflect on those who made the ultimate sacrifice so we can continue to enjoy the things we enjoy. So while you are out and about this busy weekend, stop to think of those who aren't anymore. Thank you heroes from the bottom of my heart, for what you did for me,...

464.4250 to be IDed

Got two normals on it, in the Boston area, neither of which are in the WIKI 464.4250 D115. Units calling "H", not very strong in Needham, but strong enough. 464.4250 100.0 is almost always a DTMF code, followed by a confirmation tone. I can't recall ever hearing any voice on it. Was slightly stronge...

Thanks for this post. I had the same issue on my SDS200 recently but couldn't figure it out. I just checked and it was on. Thanks for reminding me of my fix.

Posting of sensitive and/or input information

Hi Folks, Because this has popped up a couple of times recently, I want to refresh a long standing policy here at Scan New England. We run the site as a "public safety" friendly website. We also want to minimize the risk to public safety users that can occur with information that is "released". So w...

Can you post a couple of pictures of what you did? Or is it too much of a PITA to take it apart again? The thing is, it's wedged in and working great. I don't want to change dislodging it or having it not work as well. A scanner that costs close to $700 and we are talking foil and electrical tape? ...

Re: SDS200 Observations

I am having great UHF and VHF analog reception for the most part. I am still skeptical sometimes, as I feel like it should be picking up things it may not be. (My SDS-100 I am thinking has become somewhat deaf, and I need to do a side-by-side on it). I hope to get a 2nd outdoor antenna put up this y...

Re: Braintree Radios _ Sluething Opportunity?

Honestly it looks like they are looking to replace the phone line interconnects to their repeater sites with MW or IP solutions. Those of us who use copper lines know the days are numbered, and the service is dropping fast on it. The cost to upgrade the whole radio system, like new repeaters, etc., ...

Re: SDS200 Observations

So the hum was driving me nuts, and based on a suggestion, I squeezed the scanner really hard where the "foil piece" was, and poof. The noise is now almost 100% gone! The suggestion in the thread is, the foil piece is meant to ground the front display to the main PCB/chassis of the scanner, as the n...
