Re: New Post Count, not dropping [unread] ??

I am experiencing the same thing as Bill. Clicking "mark forums read" did not solve the "problem". I like seeing the old threads that I have already read, so I don't consider this a problem (as long as the post list doesn't get too long). The problem isn't that posts are showing up as unread, just ...

Re: New Post Count, not dropping [unread] ??

Bill,

If this happens again, go to the board index, and on the top right, there is a link. "Marked forums read", will clear it.
I've seen this happen occasionally on the other forum I am on that uses PHPBB. It has to do with cookie handling.

Re: Uniden SDS100 Scanner

So I will say, the overall digital performance of the scanner is amazing. Best sounding digital I have ever heard. I found the digital audio on the HP-1 to be the best Uniden has to offer. Do you think this is better? Not sure if you ever owned a HP-1 or 2. Owned a HP1, currently own an HP2, but I ...

Re: Uniden SDS100 Scanner

Update. Well I am having a real issue with UHF Images. It doesn't seem to handle UHF frequencies very selectively. I posted a thread at RR about it, and others seem to be having the same issue. Hopefully there is a firmware fix for it, or something the factory can do. These images are bad enough to ...

Re: Uniden SDS100 Scanner

I don't think that Uniden will come up with an external charger. They're likely to run up against that CA law about chargers. Which I don't understand. Without seeing what the battery pack looks like, it's not possible to say if some other form of charger will work. It sounds like most other issues...

A few early observations about the scanner. 1) I haven't tried it on the RISCON system yet, so performance on an 800 P25 trunk aren't here yet. I will try to get into Rhode Island tomorrow to test it. 2) P25 and analog audio soun...

154.2950 - 203.5 is alive... sort of

All morning there has been strange activity on 154.2950 / 203.5 First there were these transmissions that were echoing. The echo was so bad, it was basically unintelligble. And at some point between 12:00 and now (13:30), the frequency/PL are on, holding a carrier, occasionally interrupted by a MDC ...

Re: Help!

Did you enter it as a P25 trunk?
Make sure it is that and not a MOT 800/900 plan.

Also make sure you have TGID's entered in. If not, set it to open or search for IDs.

Re: Adapter vs jumper

You're going to have more loss on that PL259 connector than the jumper. That tiny jumper's loss will be almost unnoticeable for standard scanner band reception. Definitely in a mobile environment, the loss is minimal versus the stress of a big connecting adapter on the scanner. If it were my choice,...

So! Despite having their two arguably best players out, one of their third leaving the game early, the Celtics very easily handed the Bucks the start of their golf season tonight.

Butel ARC536 V2.1 B6 bug

So I upgraded my ARC536 PRO to V2.1 B6., and immediately had an issue.

All single conventional DMR systems, it read them as P25. So all single line DMR systems are now in Butel as P25.
I have reported the bug to Butel, but as a heads up.

It appears WNEU may be trunking DMR Now. I heard radio traffic on several frequencies, with data also now showing on one of them. I was unable to see more details as I was driving.
