    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    SDS100 Interference with SDS200

    Thank you in advance for any help. I’ve noticed when I place my SDS100 near my 200 the reception is choppy. This is a bit shocking to me as I normally have my equipment in close proximity. My second SDS200 has no issues being close to the other 200. Anyone have any suggestions about why this...

    SDS200 Bad Audio Quality when attached to speaker amp

    Folks, I was testing the SDS200 in place of our 996p2's attached to the station alerting system at our stations. When attaching it to the amp, the normally good audio quality from the SDS200 sounds muffled and not good at all compared to the older scanners or a Unication. Does anyone have any...

    I just called Uniden customer support, and they don't know the size of the new SDS200 scanner. Web site says 180MM by 75MM. Why can't they list it as Length, Width, and Height ? They reason I need to know is to see if will fit into an enclosure I bought several years ago that has multiple...

    SDS200 Avoiding 'Nothing to Scan'

    Several days ago I learned that 'Service Type' must be enabled for those entries with Service Type defined or they will not be scanned. This morning I learned that a location must be programmed for each entry if 'Location' is turned on. I didn't have the luxury of owning a 436 or 536 prior to...

    SDS200 freezes on a channel when scanning

    I'm having scanning issues on the SDS200. It just stops on a frequency, presumably indefinitely, but still shows as scanning. Here's a video I took of the problem. Squelch has no effect. I typically scan through about 20 frequencies. If I go into the menu and back out that fixes it. I...

    Upgrading a bc75xlt to sds200

    So I mostly listen to police/fire/ems and I have a bc75xlt that for the most part covers that pretty well for where I live until I hit the next town over or drive more than 25minutes from my house. Ems in the next town over uses nxdn, so I need to make the jump to a more capable scanner overall...

    Greater Orlando Aviation Authority on 169.6625 ?

    So far I'm pretty sure what I am hearing on 169.6625 NAC 292h P25 is a dispatcher that ID's as "GOAA Comm" with alerts for fire and medical folks to terminals and gates within the Orlando International Airport. Just the alerts, never any responses so traffic is pretty light. I also heard a...

    SDS200 Reception is muted mid transmission randomly

    I've noticed a problem with my SDS200. The radio will begin to receive fine, but at some random point in the transmission, the audio will just cut out. I still see the radio is receiving and I have -86 or so on the RSSI Scale. My other radios are all still receiving but the SDS200 Mutes. I...

    A new Uniden SDS200 recently arrived at my home and I used it to scan for a number of signals during the days surrounding the Daytona 500 race. From my location about 6 air miles distant from the track I was able to hear the spotters for the race teams who were located on the roof of the...
