If you are one of the early adopters, the initial production units have a smaller battery, less run time than the target of 8hrs. So, since the original batch has already been produced, and is shipping to the distributors, those getting the initial batch will get a second, larger, battery probably around August or so. The larger battery will also have a different, deeper, battery compartment cover. So, the early birds, getting the initial small battery, will end up with two, instead of only one, battery. Those who wait for the production run that starts shipping with a larger battery will have just that, one (larger, or should we say 'full size') battery.

I pre-ordered from Scanner Master this afternoon. Hopefully they will have enough units to satisfy the initial orders today and I won't have to wait after already paying. I live pretty much right between multiple tower sites of a simulcast system. My 436HP is unusable in my house. I have 2 yagi antennas that I set up for my 436 and 996P2 that have helped but I still have simulcast issues even with those. Strong signals that come in clear and then next you can't even understand them. I was considering a Unication prior to the announcement of the SDS-100. Hopefully this will be the solution to my problem and I can use the scanner all around my house again instead of being tied to an antenna in my office.

Too bad my live audio feeds will have to continue to stay on the Yagi's because I definitely can't afford to replace those yet. Lol!

Please let us know how the SDS100 works for you and if it is as good as we are all hoping you might give your listeners on your audio feed a taste of how good it is. They may send a few buck each and you can then get a 2nd SDS100.

I'll definitely be sure to post the difference and if the SDS-100 solves my problems. I definitely don't suffer from weak signal. I just suffer from being smack dab in the middle of all the towers!

Since the scanner has received FCC approval, not much point in keeping this thread open.
