• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

The manual doesn’t specially state, but until ours arrive I need actual and accurate dimentions of the 200.

I am working with a couple of console manufactures to see if we can get the radio into a certain console onfiguration, but none of us have a radio in possession to get anything going yet.

Just measured mine...it is exactly 7 inches wide, a mm or so less wide than a 996, and a mm or so less than 3 inches tall, and exactly 5 inches deep not including the buttons and BNC connector. The SDS200 is the EXACT width of a Motorola dash mount radio (Spectra, Maxtrac, XTL, APX), so the SDS will happily rest inside inside the brackets of the Motorola HLN6042 8 ohm 7.5 watt desktop speaker tray. :)

Since you mentioned it, how is the speaker on that speaker tray? Does that SDS200 have enough audio to run that speaker and sound amazing? Recommend?

It's a great speaker. 8 ohms so it's not putting a strain on the audio amp in the scanner, and plenty loud and clean for in room monitoring, even with the SDS or the newer Whistler scanners with low power speaker output. You can crank them up to max with absolutely no distortion. My TRX2 and WS1098 also fit in the Moto tray perfectly. You can just cut the Moto plug off and splice or solder on a 3.5mm.
