Just curious if there is a site or social media account that shares future and upcoming products that Unication is working on or is this thread the best place for that?
One of the Uni reps was talking about the next pager being able to scan two systems simultaneously. If traffic was happening simultaneously, the audio of one system would play through the speaker and the second would record and playback when the first completed.I must have misread something and for the life of me, I cannot find where I read it. I've checked my search history to see if I can re-trace steps. I thought I came across something discussing a new product coming out soon but clearly I'm losing my mind.
I was mistaken. There was a lot of back and forth about being able to monitor two systems simultaneously, but it was channels. I guess I was thinking of the link to this brochure. G Series Free Scan #17 "Receiving the decoding in two different channels simultaneously. The one channel plays the audio out, the other channel will record voice message automatically. (under develop, require new platform).
There are no radios that have technology to scan two different systems at the "same time". But they are working on a way to scan across systems. But it wont be at the same time. Not trying to nit pick just making a clarification. It will park on a control channel, scan it, then move on to the next control channel and scan it.Notice that the brochure states "channels" while we're talking about "systems"; two completely different animals.
Has Unication ever confirmed that they have the technology to scan two different systems at the same time?
The technology to simultaneously monitor multiple 770MHz public service trunked systems isn't much of a stretch for an SDR. It'd just have to be able to sample enough bandwidth to cover all of the channels (769-775MHz), and enough DSP "horsepower" to decode multiple channels simultaneously. I've been experimenting with this concept using software like sdrtrunk and hardware like a HackRF One (which can sample up to 20MSPS => ~20MHz). Monitoring 770MHz and 850MHz at the same time would be a bit of a different story, though.There are no radios that have technology to scan two different systems at the "same time".

Unication has a pretty strict minimum pricing policy (from what I understand), so you'll likely see the same prices everywhere, which makes customer service a differentiator. I 100% agree with @RetiredVolunteer on recommending Ray's Pager Sales.While we’re in this conversation, where is the best deal on a G5 coupled with the best customer service/ best shopping experience? I’m within a week or so of pulling the trigger.
