    SDS100 battery issue

    I bought an sds100 about a week ago and I love it but I think it may have a battery problem. I get about an hour, not even like 45 minutes just on the battery itself and it doesn't matter what I'm scanning, while the big battery is boasted to last around 6 hours. I fully charged it to see if...

    Here lately, I've noticed that they aren't using the 460 frequencies anymore. I was listening to the South and North dispatch, plus the car to car frequency and in the past few weeks, I haven't been hearing any traffic at all. Did the GCSO move to new frequencies or....? If so, could someone...
