Greetings all,
In my quest to further gain knowledge of local radios systems I was thinking on doing a discriminator mod. Just a few questions before hand. If I was to do this mod on my Pro 97, would I still be able to use my scanenr as normal or do this mod dedicate the unit to being used soley for the discriminator mod. Secondly, when running a program such as unitrunker, what information will such a program show me...

Thanks for any help guys...

Yes - you can still use as before.

The only side effect of a disc. tap - when plugged directly into a computer sound input or a slicer circuit (some are better than others) - will affect squelch operation or decreased overall volume. As soon as you unplug the discriminator tap, the radio returns to normal.

Live call activity
Affiliations
Talkgroups
Radio Ids
Active patches
Neighboring sites

Check the wiki for screenshots and general info on Trunker, Unitrunker and a half-dozen other related programs.

Great, thanks for the info, I was more so concerned that IF I did the mod could I still use my radio as normal when not using the discriminator. And from what I gather from what you just said, the answer would be yes...

Thanks Kindly...
