    Uniden has once again hit it out of the park with the forthcoming release of the entirely new SDS100 portable scanner radio.

    This true I/Q Scanner is the first scanner to incorporate Software Defined Radio technology to provide incredible digital performance in even the most challenging RF environments. The SDS100’s digital performance is better than any other scanner in both simulcast and weak-signal environments. This is the first scanner to signal the end of the notorious digital trunking simulcast distortion problem! Hallelujah and thank you, Uniden!

    The SDS100 is also the first scanner that allows one to arrange the multi-color display any way you want. Change colors, locations and layouts on the brilliant color display.

    The scanner memory is enormous but it also provides the entire US and Canadian databases already loaded on the included SD memory card. This scanner has it all! Optional GPS control, DMR, NXDN and ProVoice operation are available. See our web page for lots more details and videos.

    About our Set-up & Optimize Service
    With Scanner Master's exclusive Set-up & Optimize service we see to it that your SDS100 is fully updated and ready to use for your area, perfect for your own use and especially perfect for a gift. First we optimize the internal database by updating the frequency library, which changes daily. We will also check and install any firmware updates to the HomePatrol before the radio ships. (The firmware is the operating system for the radio which may have been updated or tweaked by the factory following its production in Asia.) Scanner Master will then build a Favorites List for the customer (based on the ship to address of your order), or for the area in which the scanner will be used if the customer specifies a different city and county (for example if the radio is given as a gift). Scanner Master will also pre-tune the radio by entering the end-users zip code.

    Note that this service will add approximately 7 to 14 business days for processing before the radio will be shipped.

    (The benefit of this Favorites List work is that we insure that the most important data to the user is readily accessible as often times, if the database for the end user's area hasn't been completely prepared with what's known as "geo-tagging" then some or all of the local agencies will not activate for scanning. Scanner Master insures that this will not be the case.)

    Second Time Customer February 10, 2019
    Reviewer: Coffeegrind from Lansing, MI United States  
    I just bought my second Scanner from Scanner Master and both times they were very fast and efficient and extremely kind. The first purchase ( Bcd436HP ) I had them program it for me and it really helped me when learning to program my next purchase ( SDS100 ). These guys are very helpful. I would definitely recommend them again. Thanks Scanner

    Battery February 8, 2019
    Reviewer: jorge fernandez de lara from Palm Coast, FL United States  
    Battery will NOT charge. Once you take it off the adapter, the low battery message come out and it shuts down after a few seconds. Only the charger that came with the unit is being used. Battery is NOT good. I have a 700.00 boat anchor

    Reviewer: LARRY D. from HOT SPRINGS, AR United States  
    Great Scanner, if your not familiar with this level of scanner it does have a bit of a learning curve, but well worth the effort to learn.
