I have just BEGUN messing with the colors on my new SDS200 and figured there need be a forum about this.
This discussion requires SERIOUS deliberation and could get heated. :unsure: Go easy on each other. Please be polite and professional and remember we are all in the same hobby, using the same scanners.


What are your color schemes for the SDS100 or SDS200? I know mine needs work. I have spent a few hours already. More to come. many, many more...

POST A PICTURE. A PICTURE IS EASIER THAN DESCRIBING.

Here is mine all color coded cyan unit info chartruse system related tanish department related blue channel related on detail trunk screen photo shot. Yesits a pita to setup I couldnt do it on sentinel had to do it on the unit then read it into sentinel then use copy to send it to conventional detail also. Anyway heres the pi.

You can spend hours messing with the colors. LOL
i think you made a typo. you mean you can spend DAYS messing with the colors. LOL. in case there are ops who do not own one of these scanners looking a this forum, you can change colors on each of the diff scan modes AND whether you have the screen in basic or detailed in those scan modes to diff color schemes (that means literally everything on the screen can be set to whatever color you like, including the lines). hope i explained this right at 5am. maybe the correct word is YEARS, DECADES or LIFETIMES.

Just because it has a lot of colors you really dont need to use them all. Sometimes simple and clean is what looks best. I wanted my sds100 and 200 to look like something the Factory would have come up with.

Simple is better. Want to be able to read data quickly. I still have my Christmas tree up if I want to see bright perty lights.
Exactly.

My screen set-up is all about readability at a glance. To make the text larger, I have converted all of my Favorite Lists' fields to ALL CAPS. I've been using lighter colors on a black background. The channel name is the most important thing I want to see at a glance when I hear a transmission, so that field gets the lightest color of the palette I'm using.

Oh, and I'm using simple display mode. If I have the scanner in the house and I'm tracking down some freqs or talk groups, I might switch to detailed display mode.
