• 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 just read on their FB page that in a few months they will be announcing a new scanner. I personally would love to see a radio like the 996XT with the Home Patrol-1 touch screen.. Well here is to hoping!

Thinking it may only be for the aussie's
Indeed. This has been discussed recently before but this announcement is
NOT for the US Market. Uniden Australia is separate from Uniden America
and announcements for Uniden Australia have NOTHING to do with announcements
here in the US.

But, like any company I am sure Uniden America is hard at work on stuff for the
future.

When they do come out with something new for the US, hopefully it addresses the simulcast distortion issues and is capable of P25 Phase II.

I think that would be a matter of a $1000+ scanner, but I like others living in simulcast hell would find the money to buy it if it were made.

My PSR-500 cost a lot less than $1000 and handles the local Moto II simulcast just fine.
Simulcast Moto II works fine on most scanners. Simulcast P25 systems on the other hand are a completely different story.

Some of us aren't so lucky. My 396XT absolutely sucks on the the local Moto II simulcast system. The 396T is sort of acceptable using manual P25 threshold levels and the PSR-500 works fine.

All I want is Motorola TRBO reception. Most likely won't see it. But that's what I need for my area. Licensing it would probably cost more than a consumer product could stand to bear as far as final sales price. But I can wish can't I?

Oh, and I would be willing to bet they "announce" it at CES in January.

However, Uniden USA will have a couple of scanner-related announcements of their own in the not-too-distant future.
