    XTL/XTS5000 XTS5000 Programming 700 MHz - shows up red and error

    Yes, conventional. CHP mobile extender/HTs to be more specific. And then LAFD later. Here is an example: Frequency Input 769.44375 799.44375

    XTL/XTS5000 XTS5000 Programming 700 MHz - shows up red and error

    Hello, I am trying to program some 700 MHz band frequencies (to monitor/scan) into my XTS5000. However, the program shows the RCV and TX frequency as red (as an error). I want it to be RCV only (I know how to to that), but I read in previous posts I need to put in the TX frequency first, the...

    XTL/XTS5000 XTS5000 Programming Scan List Questions

    Awesome. That did the trick. Thank you so much. :) Now I am realizing I need more personalities than I previously thought.

    XTL/XTS5000 XTS5000 Programming Scan List Questions

    I have a couple of questions about programming my XTS5000 regarding the scan feature. 1). Is there a way to program a specific scan list per zone? I have two scan lists, but they seemed to have been randomly assigned to a couple of zones. The radio came preprogrammed from whom I purchased...

    SDS100: Updating Database: Does This Update Favorites List?

    Thank you all for your responses. This is as I suspected: I will have to do it manually. Wouldn't that be nice if there was? Options!

    SDS100: Updating Database: Does This Update Favorites List?

    I just recently got an SDS100. I downloaded the latest firmware and database to the Sentinel Software. I had previously had data there, including my Favorites List, from my BCD436HP scanner. When I update the database, does it update my Favorites List data, as well, or do I need to manually...

    SDS100: SDS100 Terrible Reception

    What about P25 (e.g. LAPD), should that be set to FM or NFM? When is NFM used?

    SDS100: SDS100 Terrible Reception

    UPDATE: I meant BCD436HP, not BCD396T (sold that one several years ago).

    SDS100: SDS100 Terrible Reception

    I just recently got the SDS100 a few days ago. I have had my BDC396T for a few years. I put them side-by-side and tuned into a local LAPD dispatch channel (conventional P25) and put the channel in hold mode, using stock antennas on both and both set to 2 on the squelch. My 396 would pick up...

    Uniden SDS100 & SDS200 Color Schemes

    That would be a great idea... probably can be done via a software/firmware update. If only Uniden read our suggestions.

    ICI Trunked System - Posts your new findings here!

    I just got a Uniden SDS100, and still hear nothing on ICIS. I listened for about an hour. I am monitoring from the Mission Hills area (near the 405 and the 118 fwys). I thought I would at least hear San Fernando and possibly Burbank and Glendale. I hear LAPD, LASO, LAFD, CHP, and others just...

    Uniden SDS100 & SDS200 Color Schemes

    Not sure if anyone asked or posted about this, but is there a way to set a color scheme for each System or Department? Or is it only for the ones listed in the "Customize" menu (Set Simple Conventional, Set Simple Trunk, Set Detail Conventional, etc)? This would be a great feature. Example...

    Is LA-RICS a replacement for, in competition with, or in addition to the ICI System (ICIS)?

    ICI Trunked System - Posts your new findings here!

    I am no longer hearing anything on ICI (ICIS). I am scanning from the main database on my HP2 and from my favorites list on my BCD436HP, both updated in the last week (August 2021). Its seems like I haven't heard anything in a while. I am not sure what's up with the system.

    Programming Help: ASTRO 25 Software Doesn't Recognize XTS5000 Radio

    I purchased a Motorola XTS5000 from eBay. It came with several frequencies already programmed into radio (receive only). I want to move them around to my liking and add some more. The radio came with ASTRO 25 software. I also purchased a programming cable. It came with a serial to USB...

    Baofeng Baofeng DMRs - Alphanumberic?

    I just won a bid on eBay for a new AnyTone AT-D878UV for $177.50. It came out to about $200.00 with taxes and shipping. It arrives on July 2. I figured if I was going to spend about half that on a "cheap" one, I might as well just get a better one. I did see some used Motorola DMRs around...

    Does the Anytone 878 do analog, also?

    Baofeng Baofeng DMRs - Alphanumberic?

    Does anyone know if the Baofeng DMRs (DM-1701, DM-1702, DM-1801, DM-X) allow alphanumeric tagging of the channels (or whatever the equivalent is called in the DMR world)? Some ancillary questions: Besides the ones I listed above, are there any other Baofeng DMRs? Which Baofeng DMR seems to be...
