    But they're not just for weather warnings.

    Any idea as to what this tower is for?

    These new electronic sirens are not as effective as the old school ones in my area. I have one of these exactly one mile from my home and if I'm indoors watching TV with all the windows closed I usually don't hear it.

    Fair enough, I must have missed that post. We'll just have to wait and wait and wait and see! :sleep:

    Static Discharge's Hum Fix

    I think Uniden is ignoring and not using Static Discharge's solution is because they don't want to acknowledge him and be under any legal obligation where they have to pay him for his finding and successful fix.

    Static Discharge's Hum Fix

    My first SDS200 had the problem, I promptly send it back for a full refund. My second one did not have the problem, but I since then sold it. I'd consider buying another one if I could be certain it would be problem free. Uniden hasn't been able to assure us regarding fixes on any of their...

    225-400 MHZ ANTENNA

    It appears the design has been slightly modified since this was printed. The vertical top element in the PDF you posed shows a shorter vertical element with a small coil near the bottom. Mine has a simple 17" long solid vertical element with no coil.

    225-400 MHZ ANTENNA

    I did the following inquiry on Google: Does SWR affect receiving? "Simplified answer: There is no relationship between SWR and receive performance. There is one condition for this simplification to be true: the received RF noise floor must be above your receiver's noise floor."

    225-400 MHZ ANTENNA

    I read somewhere the top whip is tuned for 145 MHz. I respect your and Ubbe's comments, and math & sciences are certainly better than my opinion but it just works and works great! As Floki says in the Viking's TV series, it's the Gods! o_O

    225-400 MHZ ANTENNA

    Thanks Mike, that's more detail than I usally get. What is your feelings on the Sirio SD2000? Do you recomend removing the top vertical element even though I monitor VHF aircraft? As I said previously it works very well as is. This is the first time I've monitored VHF air (AM of course) that...

    Bridge antenna

    How did you get up there? :sneaky: It might be one of those low power AM broadcasters with tourist information for the immediate area.

    225-400 MHZ ANTENNA

    With the top whip removed wouldn't that lessen it's performance on the VHF air-band? I don't own any gear to test antennas. But the SIRIO SD 2000 appears to out perform the DPD Production's 1/2 wave VHF air-band antenna as well as their MilTenna Omni UHF/VHF Base Antenna. I've been a diehard...

    Buggy Uniden driver

    I've experienced this problem for years with various Uniden (only) scanners on various desktops & laptops, and various versions of MS Windows. It's Uniden hardware problem. Normally I never use any power saving features on any PC's.

    Interesting Ubbe, but for me it's working great particularly on the VHF air band. (y)
