Theres the  aor -dv10 and the new icom scanner does digital too

Actually, I see the one you're talking about. The DV10 is not my first choice tbh. Scans TETRA in DMO too.

Next questions is if it's worth buying a DMR scanner in terms of traffic? It's still relatively rare in my neck of the woods, three frequencies of new users. All the old local users I'd be interested in receiving are still on analogue.

I have had a historical preference for Uniden due to their user-friendliness and good all-round capabilities.

If taking this into consideration, which out of those listed would be recommended?

To the OP

If you can find secod-hand, there's a;

Uniden BCD436HP (handheld) and BCD536HP

Which also do DMR and recently NXDN with a firmware update (free) and a paid upgrade.

The SDS-100?

A $650 scanner which ramps up to $800 if you want to decode DMR and NXDN because you have to pay for the upgrades.

Why a manufacturer can't give a user what they need straight out of the box and meet half way with the cost???

Imagine buying an electric car, *** batteries not included ***

Radio Talk / Uniden UBCD3600XLT

Hi all, long time no see, I'd hung up my boots for a bit.

I was dusting off the 3500xlt and got a few hits on air. Then I had a look online and saw suggestions of the UBCD3600XLT as its Uniden's first DMR capable scanner, I was wondering does anyone here have one and do they think it's worthwhile for nearly 500 quid?

Frequencies / 457.2000 MHz digital/DMR, east Cork
« Last post by WBEN98 on June 05, 2018, 16:18:34 PM »
I'm getting regular DMR transmissions on 457.2000 MHz in the east Cork area (only have an analogue scanner with me so just produces the engine type sound from DMR), its active for some time (not recent or temporary), signal peaks in Castlemartyr area but receivable a good few miles either side driving on N25 (no hills to block it)  .

Any ideas what it is?
