    Westchester Co PD now P-25

    Just for future FYI we call it “looking it up in the data base” not “investigating an agency.” So kindly don’t do it again. Just for future FYI, there should be a period between “time” and “I”. So Kindly don’t do that again. Just for future FYI, lighten up it is a hobby forum.

    Amateur radio and out-of-band transmit in the news

    “ They also jumped in to help the Peninsula Fire Department troubleshoot their problems when the main firehouse radio failed, along with repeater issues.” Too bad they did not have a mmckenna in charge of their radio system. If they did they would not have to rely on AMATEUR radio operators to...

    Ham radio vs. Medical Equipment and HOA

    Amateur radio and out-of-band transmit in the news

    If you press the PTT button on a non certified radio for public safety a death ray gets sent out and zaps everyone in site. At the time of the major fire burning, and the “inconvenience” of not having good comms the fire chief reached out to “amateur” radio operators to help and this was the...

    I am sure Uniden marketing strategist are happy you explained to them price point. I am sure no one in Uniden ever heard of this before. Not while getting their business degree or during the years of experience they had in pricing goods. They been in business since 1966. I am sure that is taken...

    Digital Mode Upgrades

    Let’s take a vote and set the price. I say $5.00. No one buy an upgrade until Uniden sets the price to $5.00. While we are at it stop buying those expensive SDS scanners until Uniden sells them for $50.00. After all we the consumers set the price.

    Signal to noise ratio

    I just ordered the analyzer from Amazon. It will be fun to play with. Also found an older one at work in someone’s office. I going to see if it works and if I can take it home for a day or two to compare the two. A little over due for a calibration. It expired in 2012🤣

    Signal to noise ratio

    I am experimenting with my mobile HF installation. What I want to do is try to reduce the signal to noise ratio (SNR). So what would be the best way to measure the SNR without using expensive professional equipment? Can I just turn down the squelch and see what my S-meter is reading? Would just...

    Consumers are one part of the puzzle that sets the market not the sole part. Supply and demand, competition, production costs among others are other major parts that set the market. The dealer would only go so low before he he decides not to sell to you based on what they paid for the car and...

    Digital Mode Upgrades

    How did you come up with $40.00? I am sure Uniden can back the $60.00 upgrade with real numbers and market research. It am sure you can not defend $40.00 with any of that. How many upgrades did they sell so far? How many do they anticipate selling this year ? What is the life expectancy of the...
