Nice thing about having this forum is that anyone can simply go through and see Unication's past actions. I'm not trying to stir up anti-Unication sentiment but just voicing an opinion molded by months of lurking here. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised with an earlier release. Of course given the track record on buggy PPS releases, let Unication stretch out and take all of Q1. If it ships March 31st, it's still Q1...

I have a pre-order for one of the P2 G5's and have been trying to give these guys my money for well over a year. There is only one system in my area that I want to listen to. It's been 100% P2 from the beginning and extremely difficult to monitor with a scanner while mobile.

Great radio, beats the hell out of my BCD996P2 on the TRWS (Mesa/Gilbert, AZ) P25 Phase I system. The simulcast was impossible to monitor, all garbled.

So this would be the perfect radio if:
1. You could pause on talkgroup
2. You could lockout a talkgroup
3. You could add a delay to a talkgroup
4. Had an external output jack
5. The belt clip locked onto the radio better

Are you listening Unication?
Thanks....

I second that. The only things that's been stopping me from pulling the trigger is a lack of scan delay and no scan hold / resume button.

Belt clip locked onto the radio better?? Are we talking about the same belt clip? Removing the clip from my G4 was extremely difficult, so much that I hesitate putting it back on ever again.

Default official blah blah

etihparg must have meant "differently" instead of "better" I hope* IT was the most difficult thing I've had to try and remove since a bottle of plastic skin was shaken up and the cap was GLUED on to the top from the inside. I busted my knuckles getting that thing off and finally had to spray WD40 in the notch and pry it out with a small flat head screw driver. AFTER it finally gave, I put WD40 and vaseline in the notch and on the tab. It was almost as bad the 2nd time I had to put a battery in. It's finally more "manageable" now. I'd like to see it with 2 small screws holding a metal bar, just like the old PRO96 was. hou30guy should review the old posts about it after it first came out*

Bold emphasis mine

Not understanding this. They are not scanners. Do you mean TG delay and TG hold/resume? I agree they would be useful features. But, then again, I only listen to one system so not a deal breaker for me. For the system I listen to I assign different talk groups to different knob positions and switch when needed (which is not very often since, as a former firefighter, my interest is really just that realm.) For somebody listening to many talk groups at once then delay and hold features would be quite desirable and hopefully Unication will bless us with that someday.

For sure!! My belt clip never when back on once I got it off. I don't use it and I never want to have to take it off again.

Ha, I was wondering the same thing. I thought for sure I'd snap something off. I finally punted and e-mailed Ray's Pagers, which is where I bought it. Ray responded right back and said to slide a coin under the tab and pry up, but not too much. That did it, but it was still a bear to remove.

The belt clip WAS a bear to remove the first time. Possibly I did not have it properly re-attached. Have to look at that. UPDATE: Make sure it is locked into position. I had to puh the tab in until I heard the click. Okay now.

I found that if you pull up on that little tab too hard, it doesn't return fully back to it's original "shape" and can result in the belt clip coming off more easily later. Use lots of caution removing the clip carefully/slowly... Even better, acquire a holder/holster to carry the unit on your belt rather than the clip.
