I have a Uniden SDS100 that I am using for Tone-Out Search and Tone-Out Standby. The Uniden SDS100 as 32 Tone-Out Standby memories. If I want to use it for more than 32 pairs, how will the Uniden SDS100 respond if I use 0.0 as Tone A or Tone B for the agencies that have more than one station on the opposite tone?

Here is an example. One of the fire departments for a city near me uses multiple tones. They are as follows:

Tone A Tone B

953.7 569.0 Station 1

953.7 600.9 Station 2

953.7 400.9 Station 3

953.7 634.5 All Call

If I program a Tone-Out Standby as Tone A: 953.7 Hz and Tone B as 0.0, how will the Uniden SDS 100 respond with that?

Another fire department near me uses the following sets of tones:

421.6 832.5 Station 2

433.0 832.5 Duty Crew

2043.8 832.5 All Call

If I program a Tone-Out Standby as Tone A: 0.0 Hz and Tone B as 832.5, how will the Uniden SDS 100 respond with that?

From the manual...

I don't have an SDS100, but it seems from reading the manual you can put the common tone for each group you want to be alerted to into the Tone A setting and it should work. That's how I interpret that...YMMV.

This has never worked for me on Uniden FTO. Note above that it says that you can put in a value into A for a short "single tone". Literally it is that - a single tone. It never worked for me on 2 tone groups. It just won't do a wildcard like you are asking. At least never for me. If someone else has successfully done this I'm all ears.

I did try this and, just like you said, I could not get it to work on two-tone groups.

That's tragic, thankfully with modern devices the functionality is only a firmware revision away (provided a dev somewhere is told to do it).
