Hang in there a few more months. The Whistler (formerly GRE) models will be out
and all will be well once again in the scanning world!
Well I'm in an area where the 436 and 536 do not do well. Poor digital decoding, missed transmissions, etc. Reading some of the comments in the Whistler/GRE forum others have already returned their Unidens hoping Whistler will come thru. Check with someone in your area and see if a feed provider can answer questions about the systems.
The RR database, linked to the scanner by Uniden, doesn't correspond to some of my nearby stations, and telling RR has not helped - they tell me it's up me to tell them how to fix their problem. And Uniden refers me back to RR.
No, Mike, the ball is not in my court. I am a self-admitted doofus who bought the 436 Uniden, tied inextricably to RR. I have no knowledge about how to discern the type of digital being used by my local police - and when you have presented me with a list of alternatives, it's all complete gobbledegook to me.I checked your submission history and only found one submission. All you've told us is that the police and public works frequencies have changed to digital. The DB Admin that worked your submission asked for more information on what type of digital was in use but you never replied back as far as I can see.
If you tell is what type of digital, we'll change it. There are several different types of digital we can choose from but there's no point in guessing. The database is built from information supplied from users. Without that information there's nothing we can do.
Figure out what they're using and we'll get it changed. The ball is in your court.
Well, yes - The RR person who contacted me, Stratrac, something or other, is a moderator of the Illinois sub-forum.As a follow up that was suggested in another thread where you brought the same issue up, have you asked for help in the Illinois forum? Maybe somebody there could check for you and get you the information required to change the database?
