I think their 'all accessories' means if the accessory is the potential
issue. For example, if you have an intermittent connection with the
power jack, send the scanner and power cable in case it's the cable that
is the issue. I also think it says all accessories relevant to the
problem or some words to that effect.

First step is to find out what is receivable in your area. I have a unit in SDS 100 and love it

Uniden repair

After trying everything I know to fix the clock issue on my Home Patrol 2, the time has come to return it to Uniden for repair.  

The Uniden support page says to return the unit with all accessories. However I've seen past posts saying not to do this.  I will not send it with batteries installed but am unclear whether to send it back with its stock antenna and the SD card still installed (yes, the SD card is fully backed up).

Any advice?

FCC Updates Weekending 11/07/2020

Michael Martin
 

The latest updates have been posted to the web - FCCUpdates.com.

 

I found a big surprise in the FCC database for the week – Los Angeles County, California has now applied for and received a licensed for a Phase II UHF-T TRS!  If you have a slow internet connection, you may want to shy away from the California database as there are in excess of 11,000 lines of data.  It’s HUGE!  There are also quite a few renewals of VHF-Lo Band (including the American Red Cross).  Do any of your agencies still use Lo Band?  Anyway, below are some of the highlights of this week’s updates:

California – Los Angeles County licensed for a Phase II UHF-T TRS.
Louisiana – St. John the Baptiste Parish has a new P25 800 MHz TRS site.

Michigan – Michigan Department of Corrections has new P25 UHF frequencies in Ionia County.
North Carolina – North Carolina State Highway Patrol has a new Phase II 800 MHz site in Charlotte (Mecklenburg County).  Addition to VIPER?
Pennsylvania – Wayne County added several new NFM VHF frequencies.
Texas – City of Odessa (Ector County) added a new P25 800 MHz TRS Site to their system.
Texas – City of Amarillo (Potter County) added a new Phase II 800 MHz TRS Site to their system.
Texas – City of Wichita Falls (Wichita County) added new DMR UHF frequencies to both the Kickapoo and Regional Airports.

That’s it for this week.

Stay Safe Out There!

Re: Home Patrol 2 clock

Glenn Wright N1GAW
 

From what I read about it, the clock is charged through the USB and takes at least 24 hours for full charge.

I'm getting ready to send my HP 2 back to Uniden service to fix a problem with the clock not being able to hold the time for more than 12 hours.  Before I do, I want to check one last time that this is not a problem with the internal clock battery.

Although I can't find anything online about it, I seem to recall that charging the HP2 clock battery requires that the unit be plugged in and turned on and run continuously for 50-60 hours.  Does that sound familiar to anybody?

Live Scanner Q&A Tonight

Phil - W2LIE
 

Hi Everyone
Take a small break from tonight’s election coverage and join me on YouTube where I’ll be answering Scanner Q&A at 9pm Eastern US time.

Replays will be available immediately following the Live Q&A Session if you happen to miss it.


I answer questions on the first Tuesday of every month on both YouTube and Facebook, as well as on my podcast, Scanner School.

This month on the podcast, I answer the following questions:
  • What are some troubleshooting tips to improve audio quality and overall reception on a Uniden scanner?
  • Can Unication G-series pagers support Motorola type 2 systems?
  • What can someone do or what antenna can they buy if the scanner app on their cell phone is picking up more than their actual scanner radio?
  • Is it worth putting a scanner in your car if most of what you scan is digital?
  • What SDR antenna would I recommend?
You can listen to this week’s podcast at www.scannerschool.com/session150

Hope to “see" you all tonight on YouTube for the Live Q&A.

73
Phil

BOO!  Happy Halloween!

The latest FCC Updates have been posted to the website - FCCUpdates.com.

There was a LOT of data for the week.  Here are some highlights of what came in:

Arizona – City of Nogales (Santa Cruz Co.) has a new 800MHz Phase II system.
California – California State Forestry renewed a lot of VHF NFM licenses.  It is my understanding that those frequencies are also used by CalFire?
Florida – State of Florida has a new 800 MHz EDACS site in Clewiston (Hendry Co.).
Iowa – Tama County has a new UHF NFM frequency for Emergency Services paging.
Tennessee – Monroe County has a new 700 MHz Phase II system.
Tennessee – State of Tennessee renewed their license for “LETS 5”.  It says is an interop for UASI in 3 different locations.  Anyone know about this?
Texas – City of McAllen (Hidalgo Co.) has a new 800 MHz Phase II system.  Unknown if it will merge with others in the area.
Utah – Utah Communications Authority has a new 800 MHz NFM site in Kane County.
Washington – King County now officially licensed on the 800 MHz NFM Interop frequencies.
Washington – Washington State Department of Corrections has new 800 MHz NFM frequencies in Jefferson Co.

Interesting trivia about King County (Seattle) Washington:  In 2005 the State of Washington officially changed the name from King County to, get this, King County!

That’s it for this week.

Be Safe Out There!

I've used Butel software for 25 years on a number of scanners. I only use the basic version and have been able to run my scanners off of the computers with success. I  wish Whistler had made an agreement with Butel to allow the use of Butel software on the TRX-1 & 2.
