    CHIRP Invalid Username or Password

    I reactivated my account yesterday, and everything is working great as far as the site is concerned, and downloading CSVs works without issue. However, I am running into a problem using CHIRP and importing the Radio Reference data source. I get the following error after putting in my username...

    SDS100: Are avoids not working, or am I missunderstanding?

    Sorry if this post is too long, but I'm not sure what information is relevant. I purchased the sds100 after watching some videos, thinking I could use the Sentinel software to avoid the things in the database that I don't want to hear, program the scanner, and then have the scanner not scan...

    BCD436HP Database

    Hello all, I am a new BCD436HP user (began using the radio last spring) and am wondering if I should rely on the database from the Uniden site via Sentinel software or do I need to find additional, more current lists to program the radio? The reason I ask is because I'm in St. Louis and cannot...

    SDS200: Probably Not Understanding A Basic Thing?

    Hi All, I'm relatively new with my SDS200, I bought last month. I've had very little time to read up on DMA tech or much detailed op of the scanner. My previous scanner was a yellow portable Uniden of some sort with a fixed # of "channels" with a ducky*. I bought that thing maybe 20 years...

    Sentinel favorites lists and DB updates Was: Neophyte RR DB Question

    Hi, Pardon the n00bish question here. I've had my scanner (Uniden SDS200) for about 3 weeks. My time to parse the RR threads and the fair to poor scanner manual is rather limited. To my question(s): Once I have my scanner configured to my liking (unwanted stuff is AVOIDed on scanner, some...

    Sentinel SDS100

    I am trying to program my sds100 with sentinel and sentinel seems to be missing some channels from it's database, while radio reference shows that. How can I manually put the frequencies in the scanner itself?

    Sds100 gps issue

    I am trying to use the gps that I bought with my sds100 and when I put in a range, it complete ignores it and just scans whatever it wants even if its outside of the range I set. I'm pretty confident that it's just scanning the full database. Any fixes to this? (I'm aware that I put this in...

    Frequencies that are not on RR

    What dictates a frequency to be either listed on RR or to display itself on a scanner? I know somebody who owns his own private company and he and the employees communicate via walkie talkies (unknown brand, bought most likely off of amazon) and it is not listed on RR. Is it possible to listen...

    New Jersey Turnpike Authority P25 TRS

    In my free time I've been working on a mapping project of the NJSP, NJICS, and NJTA systems. Sites and ranges. I'm not sure if the ranges in the database for the NJTA system are defaults at 5mi, but I believe they're wrong. When you map it out, it leaves significant gaps which don't exist in...

    Whistler PC Software issue

    Hi everyone, When I loaded the frequencies for McCarron-Las Vegas Intl Airport using the Whistler software using the library import function, several frequencies were left out. They DO exist in the database, but not when the Whistler software make the database inquiry. The missing frequencies...

    Sentinel Favorites Updates

    I've been using Sentinel for programming most of my newer Uniden products since it first came out but I just realized something. When I update the Master Database it doesn't update my Favorites lists with the new info. How do I update my Favorites without creating a new one? Seems like that...

    BCDx36HP: Sentinel Database feature requests

    Here in the Inland North West, it's fire season (as other places). This means that a LOT of Fed firefighters are moving in/out of the area, using their home frequencies as they work the fires. They're mostly USFS, some NPS, some BLM, some are aircraft, some are contractors. Since one never...

    Downloading coordinates in search results?

    Hello, I am trying to figure out how to download a search result that includes the coordinates of the sites of the system. Is that possible in any download report (CSV)? I would prefer to search by FRN to get an entity's entire system's sites. How do I do this? All of the reports I have looked...

    Whistler ws1080 is missing folders

    My WS1080 only has these folders on the SD card: CDAT LOG REC Is there a way to get all the other folders mentioned in the manual back on the card so I can use the scanner again? (like BTMP, DB, MTMP, STMP, etc) Somehow I managed to delete those today and can't use the scanner. Thanks, Mike

    Figuring out what frequency my school runs on

    Quick question, I'm trying to figure out what frequency my school's janitors communicate on, just because I'm curious and have nothing better to do with my life. What's the best way to figure this out? I don't know what walkies they use or anything like that. Is there a database I could look up...

    Can't hear Mobile Police

    I recently reprogrammed my 325p2 using freescan and the radioreference database for Mobile County. Everything seems to be working ok, sometimes I can only hear the SO dispatcher, not the deputym but that's what ever. What is weird is I have all of MPD programmed but I just can't hear anything...
