But the problem is you need a system key file and setting up the radio to not auto-affiliate/login/register really limits how much you can get out of the radio.

I completely agree. Yes you will be limited but its a give and take situation. You will be able track the system properly and will be limited to 16 channels on a zone and limited to 1 band but it will be perfection.

But it seems like in the AZ area you will need a commercial grade radio for the trunked radio system and the SDS-100 or any other Uniden radio for the rest of the VHF and UHF conventional stuff as well as Aviation too.

It all depends on how far you want to take your hobby and how much money you want to invest. We all strive for perfection with our radios and its just not the case sometimes to have everything work a 100 percent to our satisfaction. More tools to the tool shed make the job always easier.

Syatem hold time is under system options. It's the amount of time the scanner will hold the CC without performing a house cleaning cycle.

As for antenna, I've had extended range of 5+ miles with my Tram Tri-Band mini mount in the 700-800MHz band and 10+ miles on VHF and Air AM bands.

Or something different and how to do so on Sentinel/Scanner itself and what might my expectations be if I do it. The Phoenix seems very knowledgeable, so I ask if another then Unidens antenna would yield better results?
