And people have a hard time with a SDS series scanner. But if I was a betting man, I would say SDS buyers are smarter according to you. Why does this forum have to be so harsh when people ask questions?

Bud, I made it very clear in my post and was not bashing Uniden or any other manufacture, for a home base a dongle and DSD with Fastlane is the best option, I also stated for mobile all bets are off. It may be a suprise to you, but alot of people are not stupid, that is why I referenced the voice decoding section. Quit mixing rusty nails in your cheerios in the morning breakfast. You were new and dumb at one point also, before you became the almighty know it all that calls other people too dumb.

Because my 3 SDS scanners work just as good as my 4 15x on ANALOG 150 and 460
Because my 3 SDS scanners work just as good as my 6 996P2 on ANALOG P25 NXDN DMR

Just like for the Uniden Scanners and they have problems using the ZIPCODE feature along with GPS and the FULL DATABASE and you think they can understand SCRIPTS? You are in the Uniden Forums so lets talk UNIDEN.
That is a big help to alot of people isn't it?

When a scanner gets setup you do not have to set it up all over after a power failure like a pc and usb stick I have played with them and was not as happy with them as I was with my scanners. You mis quoted me I never called them names like you did.

I just put mine back in after a 4 month pause and worked fine, what are you trying to prove?
Again this is about you calling people stupid with your comment. I can turn my PC off and leave the dongle unplugged for months and when I decide to put it back in it works, so were did you come up with your last statement?

Read the link in post #41 and you will see that it is far from good compared to any other Uniden scanner. I'm a radio engineer since 30 years back and used a professional radio communication tester and the results speak for themselves. You have to consider yourself lucky to have no issues with a SDS scanners reception quality. There's a good reason to why Uniden had to add those tweaking tools in the filter settings that no other scanner needs to use.

Ubbe I have a Electronics Degree also from the late 1970's I have worked in a 2way shop also but the point is you know my setup and this is what I see with my setup so please do not tell me what my scanners are doing when you do not see them. And you own how many SDS scanners? I looked at post 41 again I do not see test for other scanners as I have posted here before I see no intermod or desense issues at my site. I have taken my SDS100 and SDS200 both to Memphis 700,000 people the 26th largest city in the US and did not see what you say is a intermod or desense problem.
Thanks Buddrousa
