• 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:

I have been considering purchasing a SD100. Some monitoring would be Airband, DMR, the UCA system, and HAFB. A bit pricey to begin with and then add on the cost of DMR, plus the cost of NXDN, it is very expensive. Is it worth it? Anyone here have one, that would like to share your opinion?

I’m in this same boat. Was leaning towards the Whistler TRX -1. Mostly because I didn’t want to pay extra for the DMR or NXDN with the Uniden Sds100 or Bcd436hp.
Then Simulcast gets thrown in the mix, and then I’m looking at the Sds100 again.

Keep in mind the whistler does not trunk track DMR or NXDN. So if you have a Cap plus or Con plus system its scanning each frequency and not monitoring the control channel like a commercial radio or uniden scanner does.
I tested out a 1080 and monitor a Connect plus UHF system and when its busy i miss a lot of traffic.
