Yeah, this would be a great feature - give us the option to control the duration or at least on with the carrierA number of us have previously asked that Uniden look into the possibility of lengthening the duration that the alert light stays on.
I'm sure Uniden has taken this under advisement. At this point they haven't said "Yes we can do that" or "No, that's not possible".
Hopefuly they can, and would include that in a future firmware update.
I get that .. however it rarely comes on and actually only when scanning and the talkgroup is initially received. I would like it to come on on every transmission on that talkgroup in the desired color.It comes on for about 5 seconds at the beginning of a transmission. That is factory set and not user adjustable, but a lot of us would like it to be.
As I write this I have the scanner (though it is a 536) on and is holding on a channel. The alert light is functioning.
I use a similar scheme for my talkgroup colors. It is not necessary that you assign alert light colors to Unit ID numbers. If you do so, then the alert light color for the Unit ID will take precedence over the alert light color for the talkgroup.
For example in my scanner I have red for fire talkgroups. For the fire dispatch console Unit ID it is magenta. Thus if Engine 1 calls the dispatcher, I first get red. When the dispatcher answers, then I see magenta.
If my problem isn't the same as yours, it is very similar. I have alerts set for a few conventional channels but I have never seen an alert. I used the menu to verify that the LED works.I cannot get the light to come on consistently at all .. it seems to come on at will.
But a ? .. I have the Alert Light colors set for my talkgroups .. do I need to set the Alert Light colors for my Unit Id records ?
I just want my Police talkgroups to show blue, Fire red and EMS yellow and Other as White.
But I cannot get them to come on .. particularly when holding on a talk group. They seem to come on better when holding on a department.
Suggestions are welcome
