Re: Any RECENT SDS200 opinions?

As is stated "your mileage may vary" !!!! I am an owner of two SDS200 radios. I have owned them for about 12 to 18 months. Radio one has exhibited flawless performance. Radio two had some initial hum issues, but a Uniden software upgrade resolved the issue. Radio two has performed flawlessly since t...

Re: MCA104M coupler opinions???

Excellent products!!! I have been using them for years. I have the 8 port and 4 port. I highly recommend the amplified versions. I suggest using connecting cables without any adapters. For most scanners use the shortest BCN to BNC cables you can purchase. If you need low loss MPD Digital is a good r...

Re: Falmouth DPW 854.7125

The old man has success with the SDS200. Falmouth DPW is programmed as a single frequency DMR system. Doing so allows the radio software to ignore the data bursts. The SDS200 software will prompt your for TG, CC and slot number. It all works nicely. Two additional TG's have appeared. 25 and 14. More...

Radio Supply Chain

I am hearing that the supply chain for radios, especially scanners,is quickly drying up. Low inventory and long, long lead times are the new normal. Anyone else hearing this??

Re: Falmouth DPW 854.7125

From what I have read on SNE, Falmouth is DMR with one frequency. I have adjusted the filter setting, as Scott suggested, and it seems to make a slight difference. Switching to IFX made no improvement. I am going to try my 536hp and see what happens. Thank you for your response.

Falmouth DPW 854.7125

The 854.7125 frequency "hang up" during the scan on my SDS200. It is the only frequency that does this. No audio when it happens. I have the CC at 7, DMR, Slot 1 & 2. I have set the delay to 0. Any thoughts??

Re: Major Weather Coming

Here is another site that may be of interest. It is especially valuable in the warm weather when T storms are forecasted. The real time lightening strike feature is awesome.

I am receiving RISCON East on a regular basis. My worst listening times are about 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The system is not very busy. To date, I have logged 19 TG's. RIPTA was annoyingly busy, so those TG are locked out. I am located in North Mashpee using a 6 element beam, LMR 400 cable and an Advanced ...

Nothing this morning from North Mashpee using my 800 beam. Disappointing. I was hoping for a shot at it. Is the control channel transmitting?
