i own both of these models as well as the 310 and 410.i have been trying to get familiar with DSD and Unitrunker by doing some reading.my question is what formats can be monitored using the PC/IF port in combination with a laptop and SDR type programs? i have read that the port is only useful for certain types.any help would be appreciated.thanks.i apologize if this post is in the wrong section.

Hello,

The scanner will dump control channel information that some programs, like P96Com and Unitrunker, can read.

If you are asking if you can receive NXDN, DMR, or ProVoice through the PC/IF using a PC and DSD with any of the four scanners, not possible. You would need to tap the radio/radios to do so.
If they were a GRE800, WS1080/1088, then you could go through the earphone via a menu change.
