    I think when Whistler was blindsided with what Paul & Uniden brought to the table, Whistler took their ball and went home.

    PL-259 connectors.

    Back in the CB hay day I hated PL-259 coax connectors. I thought I was fairly good at soldering but I was never proud of my work on PL-259's. The ones I saw suposedly done my professionals either got too hot and ended up melting insulation or were cold joints that looked like Hell!

    Nothing wrong with trying to get away with something...as long as you get away with it! :whistle::p

    While that's true, they can be optimized for the 700/800MHz bands that are most likely be digital for scanner hobbyist.

    No firmware updates?

    I tend to think the main target of the SDS series was to be used and optimized for digital and simulcast digital in particular. They gave it analog conventional capabilities that are "good enough" but that was not their prime objective. I monitor both analog and digital. I have a BCT15X...

    No firmware updates?

    There's nothing obsolete about analog scanners. They still do what they're designed to do. Scanners/receiver manufactures don't dictate when something becomes obsolete. It's the transmitter/transceiver manufactures that do that.

    No firmware updates?

    I can't imagine what needs to be updated in firmware for an analog scanner that's been out for years and works perfect. What would you suggest? What is it lacking? Firmware is not necessarily a never ending venture.

    Senior with a Situation.

    We all have to remember Rita said, "I don't own a professionally-trained monkey to climb and set up such an antenna". Nor does she have the ability to run and install coax and tune SWR, ETC. She's looking for a plug'n'play situation. I doubt she's looking to invest several hundreds of dollars...

    I have to ask the obvious, what's wrong with a landline, VoIP or Smart Phone?

    ProScan: Official Software Thread

    I do that by putting the second monitor in a lower resolution which results in making the virtual scanner graphic larger. Works great!

    I'm know some of you guys just can't let go of your old favorites, they're like an old girlfriend! But before I'd consider spending $70 on repairing one, I'd upgrade to a BCT15X for about $160 and you would get so much more for your money! Or if you insist, run it remotely on a laptop using...
