• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Bluetooth Scanner Volume Control

    I finally got my scanner setup with a BLE Volume Control that allows me to wirelessly control the volume of the external speakers hooked up to my scanner. It works like a champ. I also put the scanner on a WiFi Controlled Outlet adapter so that the scanner can be turned off remotely and/or put...

    SL3500e questions

    This radio looks interesting and has a couple of features I've not run into before. I've owned and used lots of 2-way radios (analog and digital) but I'm curious how some of this new stuff works. 1. Bluetooth. I can see how it would be easy to make a bluetooth headset work with a radio, but...

    Send scanner output via bluetooth to headset

    Hello, I have a Uniden BC246T scanner What I'd like to do is use a mini adapter that plugs into the 3.5 jack and sends the output to a Bluetooth transmitter so that I can wear headphones and listen to the scanner without a corded headphone. I thought this was going to do that but it seems now...

    Please Help. I am dumb to this

    Ok, our agency is using the APX 6000 portable with Bluetooth. In the setting we have selected over the counter Bluetooth and Motorola. We have tried several brands of Bluetooth headsets. The radio can see them, but when it goes to pair the device, it says failed. However, a iPhone 7 will connect...

    Challenge for Uniden

    Let's see if Uniden can shrink their next HP scanner to shirt pocket size. Impossible? I present as evidence the Kenwood TH-F6a tri-band transceiver -- just 2-5/16 x 3-7/16 x 1-3/16 inches, with a Li-ion battery that has nearly twice the wattage of the BCD436HP. Introduced about 15 years ago...

    I am a dentist that sedates patients. We have multiple safety protocols in place to ensure that they are absolutely without a doubt safe. Sometimes I need to leave the room. A trained assistant is always in the room watching monitors. When I leave the room, I need to hear them breathing the...

    Unity XG-100p Bluetooth options

    Wondering what headset/earpiece units anyone has good luck with. I have the radio paired with a normal off the shelf cell phone headset but the mic audio isn't routed to the radio and there is no PTT function, so i'm wondering, what accessories are out there that work the best for radios like...

    Can you use Direct Talk with BT headsets? (have more questions too)

    So, I was doing some reading and came upon some old threads that talked about Nextel Direct Talk (Not Direct Connect) where the phones have the ability to go off network and talk directly over the 900mhz ISM band frequencies. First off I had no idea that some of these iDen phones did that, but...

    Another Blue Tooth Question

    OK I read several posts regarding the use of bluetooth to listen to the scanner. I purchased a Jabra A210 adapter and tried a Jabra BT530 and Moto H375 for earpieces. I can't get any audio through either ear piece. Going by the flashing lights on the pieces, it appears that they are paired...
