    I finally made it to the 21st Century

    Hi GlobalNorth, you are going to like the Uniden BCD536HP scanner. That is a very good scanner. In addition to Sentinel, I also purchased both ProScan and BuTel Software's ARC536PRO. I am almost certain that ARC536PRO has a 30 day free trial period. I know that ProScan does have a 30 day free...

    LOL! :ROFLMAO: ScubaJungle, so what are you looking for? A receiver or a transceiver? Also, are you a ham radio operator already or would you be interested in getting your license if not currently licensed? Let us know...

    Getting into HF

    That is a good plan and who knows, you might even be able to purchase a new rig in lieu of the used rig. Keep an eye on the Yaesu FT-450D for a good sale. MSRP is about $1,100 but street price at DX Engineering is $719.95 and I've seen it in the $600s on sale. It is a nice, compact radio.

    7550e Data Transfer

    Hi Hunter KD0WMJ, Welcome to Radio Reference since this is your first post even though you joined in May of 2016. Long time lurker? Not quite clear what you want to do. You have a Motorola VHF XPR 7550e DMR HT but are you asking to transmit this data over an Amateur Radio repeater or a Public...

    Radio power wiring in a Lexus RX-300 Was: Your thoughts?

    Hi Scott, First, let me ask what model antenna and where/how is that going to be mounted? 50 watts is a lot of RF energy and you want to use good quality coax, connector(s), antenna mount, etc. Don't skimp on the antenna system because RFI could wreak havoc with the electronics of the SUV. Make...

    Dipole feed line length question

    With 7 to 8 feet of vertical space to work with and really needing vertical polarization, how about something like this at just under 6 feet tall: There are some other antennas on this page:

    Which scanner is best to sell...

    Roger that. I was just trying to show that side-by-side, the comparison shows that the Uniden BCD436HP is slightly better than the Whistler TRX-1 from a feature and specification viewpoint. That is why I would pick the 436. That being said, the TRX-1 is a nice scanner too if you like Whistler...

    Dipole feed line length question

    brizzotheizzo, what is the vertical distance from the floor joist to the apex (assuming an A-framed roof)? If a flat roof, how much headroom do you have?

    Repeater Installation Help

    ladn, remember that they are on a tight budget and want to go as cheap as they can possibly go. Your numbers are assuming high quality hardware ($$$s) which I do not think will be the case here from what we've seen so far. So your loss numbers may be off by 3 dB to 9 dB and I'm being...
