    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.

Unication G5 Performance on Local DMR systems with RAS

Jul 24, 2015
Unication pager owners,

I'm looking into getting a Unication G5. Obviously what I really want is flawless reception of LSM systems, but the Unication is tried and proven in that regard.

What I haven't heard much about is how it performs on DMR systems with RAS. I know it can decode, but how well when compared to Motorola with the proper RAS code? I'm specifically interested in the Pequannock and Kinnelon repeaters.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know about the G5 but I should have one to test in near future.
I am using the SDS200 and it decodes Pequannock 100% with latest April 15th firmware. Also decodes Morris County, Wayne, and PSIC fine.
Pequannock has a killer signal from the old TKR tower and Morris is a 13 site LSM simulcast system.

The downside is poor sensitivity with included telescopic antenna. Cannot receive 162.500 WX in Hardyston.

I need to load up the SDS100 with latest firmware and compare.
