I've named a radio unit number but when that radio is active it still shows just the radio ID number, this is a trunked sytem and I have detailed view active. Anyone tell me what I'm missing?
And there are differences between the SDS and x36HP when it comes to telling the scanner you want the Unit ID "stuff" to show up on the display. With the x36, you have to have Display Mode: Mode 2 (Unit ID Mode) selected, which is in the Display Options of the applicable Profile.With the SDS and BCD*36HP radios the radio ids are programmed differently than the 396/996/325 family of radios.
Edit display is greyed out in sentinel?You need to turn it on in the display. In Sentinel Go to Edit display, then select simple or detail display, then select a location where you want it to display, go to the right side panel and use the drop down box to select Unit ID name. There are several length options to choose and not all locations will give these options, but you can use one that will. I use the long box directly under channel name this can also be done in the scanner display options under customize. If you record in the scanner you can later download the audio into the Uniden Wave Player and use that to help identify user ID's without having to watch the display and write it down. Don't forget you can also have an alert tone or light activate for specific ID's.
You can use this feature in Simple View as well. You have the option of changing certain fields to reflect Unit ID with name. I have it in the line just below the Department.You need to change the display options to detail mode, you can do it in Sentinel or on the radio. Menu, display options, set scan display mode, detail mode.
Ok that worked and I can now see the display customiser now but I can't see where I need to tell it to display the ID name I have given it.Go to Tools>target model and select sds100 not 436HP, you also need to select this option when you download to the scanner. It should stay where you left it when you close the software. You can show the the unit ID name in simple or detail but you need to add it to the display window for whichever you use or to both.
Correct, i only have "Unit ID" showing, how do I amend that?And there are differences between the SDS and x36HP when it comes to telling the scanner you want the Unit ID "stuff" to show up on the display. With the x36, you have to have Display Mode: Mode 2 (Unit ID Mode) selected, which is in the Display Options of the applicable Profile.
With the SDS 100, in the Detail Trunk display, you have to be sure you have a field called "Unit ID Name" showing up in the display. That will get whatever Alpha tag you have associated with a Radio/Unit ID in the System programming.
You probably only have "Unit ID" which means just the Radio ID number will show up.
