The radios are starting to trickle in to the folks who pre-ordered.
Let's continue the post release discussion here.
Turn the scanner "off" (so it's showing the large-numeral clock display).My minor issue is two dif pc two dif operating systems can NOT access micro sd card while INSIDE scanner.
I know card is fine I have made scanlist and hear them fine.
My scanner drive shows up as E drive thats a OK put when I go click on drive e I get "please insert a disk into drive e".
So I took micro sd card out of scanner and into ext card reader no issues I can see all the folders read and write to it.
well this just turned into a buy for me. it will be great for me when i go to East TN on 40 (on the TVRCS) or a state with a huge system like SC or Michigan. aslo it will serve me well when the the statewide TRS comes up my way here in TNThe PSR-800 doesn't "care about" number of talkgroups. I believe it's been tested on Michigan's MPSCS, with all sites and talkgroups programmed, as well as ~1500 RadioIDs.
I've been running it for months on a local Mot3600 system which, while it only has ~50 talkgroups, has all ~65000 possible RadioIDs programmed (of course, only a small fraction of those are actually used - but I've got them all programmed).
It should be loaded and ready to go. However, depending on when the scanner was built (and its card loaded), the included RR DB could be out of date for your area. It would be best to install the included software, download the latest RR DB, and send it to the scanner.Does the PSR800 come with the rr.com database loaded already to turn on and select or does it have to be loaded first from the software...Thank You
Have you adjusted the "LiteLevel" setting? You may want to, to see maximum battery life even with the various lights turned on.The display is clear and easy to read. I'm running off Alkaline batteries to see how long they last with heavy usage. I've got most of the display option including the backlight and keypad lights, alerts, and LED flash turned on as well. So far after three solid hours of use with multiple scan lists, I've lost about 1/8" of the battery gauge on the display.
