I have multiple 396XT radios that I extensively use the remote control and programming capabilities of through the serial port. While very rarely I do use FreeScan, I much prefer linux over Windows and have written various scripts and applications of my own for communication with the radios. This was made possible by Uniden releasing their communications protocol for the T and XT series.
Speculating, based off the pages of speculation on this site (I know, a bad idea), that the new radios being released may have some HomePatrol similar features I thought I would take a look at the HP-1 comm protocol to see how different things are from the T and XT series. After a little searching I found the following page: TechnicalDocs < HomePatrol < TWiki
. Perusing the files only the Remote Control Specification covers what I was looking for, but only the remote control and no programming specific commands. Is this the only external interaction the HP-1 is capable of without using the Sentinel software?
I'm not implying that the new models will resemble the HP-1 in any way, just curious about the HP-1 protocol.
