A lot of people are using the Butel software. However, I'm using Uniden's software, which is free. You should download it & try it. Then, you can still download the Butel software & use it during the demo period & see if you like it better. It does offer import from RadioReference options, not available in the Uniden software.flyingbrick said:I just picked up a uniden. Have been monitoring with a pro96 using win96. Any recommendations on software?? I have been looking into arc396. What else is out there, or is there nothing better than butel?
Use system type "Motorola Uhf" instead of "Motorola Type II".RenMan51 said:Tried to program in a Motorola Type II system; but, when I plugged in the primary control frequency (408.100), I was told that frequency is "out of range". I looked at the specs for my 396T, and that frequency is covered.
What's up? Is there a freq range for the Motorola system? Or for the UASD?
Yeah, thanks. I thought I'd listen in to the Federal Detention Center downtown to see what I hear.hiegtx said:Use system type "Motorola Uhf" instead of "Motorola Type II".
You'll also need to input the base and offset information. From that frequency, I'd say you're trying a federal or military system.
Right, it's Moto Type II. But frequencies are in the Uhf range. So use Motorola Uhf as your system type. (There are no Type I's in that band).RenMan51 said:Yeah, thanks. I thought I'd listen in to the Federal Detention Center downtown to see what I hear.
That system is marked as a Motorola Type II SmartZone. Are there freq limits on that type of system?
Yes, but in name only. Both AVC246 and AVC396 essentially 1.0'd and are VERY stable.wolter said:I've been looking over AVC's website. I can only find a beta version of AVC396 available for download. AVC396 has been out for a while. Its still in beta?
STARNet is Moto Type II also, and the freqs are UHF (800MHz), but I use normal 'Type II' settings. Don't understand why 400MHz would be different.hiegtx said:Right, it's Moto Type II. But frequencies are in the Uhf range.
Don't know how far away from it you are. The Seagoville prison here is usually not monitorable from my house. I'm about 15 miles away, but don't have my 396 on an external antenna. The aluminum siding attenuates the already weak signal too much. I can hear them out in my truck if I'm near downtown. That's only slightly closer, but also a little different terrain between me & the site. Suspect they don't run a lot of power, just enough to cover the grounds & a reasonable radius.
