Was told by Scanner Master that Close Call does not work with DMR. And that this was one of the future goals of the Uniden scanners.

Close Call doesn't work on DMR Simplex. It does work on DMR Repeater transmissions (in fact all Uniden radios with Close Call will hit on DMR Repeater transmissions).

Since DMR simplex is a 30ms duty cycle non-continuous signal, it will never trigger a Close Call hit.

It might be worth noting that most unidens will generally hit on DMR simplex when set on Discovery or Search & Store. If you know the band in which the DMR unit is operating this can be quite effective. Not as quick as Close Call obviously but it can prove very useful for tracking down those elusive channels.
