Re: BCD996XT vs. BCD996p2

Look at how long you have had your current scanner and think that far into the future. I would expect the MA Statewide P25 system to eventually have a lot of Phase 2. DMR and NXDN get more popular all the time. It only takes your favorite system to go to one of the newer technologies and you will be...

Re: Wallingford P25 TRS

everyone's setup is different so the only way to know if you can receive it is to try. Pretty simple to setup a search or to even create a new system in a modern scanner.

Re: Westfield State Maintenance

I went mobile with DSDPlus and monitored several conversations. I only logged the 16777215 TG. If that is how the system is programmed, you could put any talkgroup into a 2 way radio and it would hear the conversation. The individual mobiles/portables have individual IDs so I can't figure out why th...

Re: Westfield State Maintenance

<t>OK, sorry, my error, I stand corrected. I thought the DMR addressing was the same as the P25 addressing where there is a limit for TGs that is 65535 (FFFF) talkgroups.

Re: Westfield State Maintenance

That is most likely the radio ID and not the TGID. I believe that the limit for talkgroups on a DMR system is the same as a P25 system. 65536 (FFFF) talkgroups and 16777215 (FFFFFF) users. It is actually a few less because the standards have a few TGs and RIDs reserved for special functions. One of ...

Pretty sure it is a Uniden firmware bug related to it being a Hytera system. It seems like it is pretty much a back burner issue until Paul gets back to work at Uniden.

If you have a box of non scanner cables around, you may find you already have one. My Garmin GPS units all use them, I have a small MP3 player that uses it. I think there are others around my house too.
