    The SDS200 is the world's most advanced scanner radio! Incorporating a Software Defined Radio (SDR) and "True I/Q" technology to provide superior digital decoding, even in challenging simulcast areas to the huge fully customizable color display, this radio has just about everything one needs to easily monitor local action.

    With the built-in updatable database one can easily enter a ZIP Code and instantly reprogram the radio for any area in the USA or Canada. Mobile users can use the optional GPS unit to automatically set the location for no-hands reprogramming. This is great for long-haul drivers, RVers or your summer vacation.

    Listen to police, fire, EMS, aviation, railroads or almost any type of radio traffic with ease. You can use the built-in database or do your own custom programming, either by using the free Sentinel software or our acclaimed ARC-536 software. You can even program by hand directly from the front panel of the radio.

    Not interested in programming or updating the radio yourself? No problem! Let our team of crack programmers do it for you! Select the Setup and Optimize option and we will custom program the radio for your area, update the database and radio firmware. (This is a paid service and will delay delivery time).

    If you need special modulation types like DMR/TRBO, NXDN or ProVoice we can add those too, select these options at purchase. (These are paid updates and will delay delivery time) These modes are not used everywhere so check with our staff to see if they are needed in your area.

    The SDS200 comes with these items in the box:
    • AC Power adapter
    • 3 DC Power cords (straight wired, cigar plug and special 3-wire plug for lighting control)
    • Mounting bracket/Desk stand
    • Rubber bumper feet
    • Back of set telescoping antenna
    • Owner's manual
    • USB Cable (for programming and upgrades)

    The SDS200 works with these modes:
    • APCO P25 Phase 1 & 2 trunking
    • EDACS, Motorola and LTR Trunking
    • NFM, FM and FMB as well as AM modulation
    • Optional DMR/MotoTRBO digital (Conventional and trunked) (Extra cost)
    • Optional NXDN/NexEdge (Conventional and trunked) (Extra cost)
    • Optional ProVoice trunking (Extra Cost)

    About our Set-up & Optimize Service
    With Scanner Master's exclusive Set-up & Optimize service we see to it that your SDS200 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 14 to 21 business days for processing before the radio will be shipped.

    Reviewer: Steve from NB Canada  
    Shipping time was great, unit is easy to use and program favorite lists with Sentinel. Micro SD card failed in less than 2 weeks, other than that, no other problems so far.

    5 of 5 Best scanner Uniden has produced April 27, 2019
    Reviewer: pat from cleveland, OH United States  
    I’ve had trouble with reception of digital trunked systems due to LSM problems with the radio systems in my area (Ohio) for years.  This radio works great right out of the box using the supplied stock telescoping antenna.  It’s expensive but it solves the problem of distortion/LSM with digital trunked systems.  The ability to customize the VERY LARGE display in many different formats/colors is nice too.

    5 of 5 Pricey, but excellent radio March 14, 2019
    Reviewer: Steve C from WARWICK, RI United States  
    Living in Rhode Island and dealing with the new RISCON P 25 system has been difficult using the previous 996 and 996P2 radios. I did some research on this new model. Bit the bullet on the price, and set it up. I recommend buying the 536 software, which I had already, as opposed to the free software. Its easier to use and upload to your radio.  Second unit is going in the vehicle tomorrow. Replacing an older 996 that is ten years old. If this is your hobby, then this is the radio for you.
