Many of you have submitted questions – today I answer a few of them!


Many of you have have been submitting their questions and today I am answering some of them.

Don't forget, you can join us on the first Tuesday of every month on our Live Q&A on YouTube and Facebook at 9pm Eastern US Time

What will you learn this week?

This month I answer:

  • The first question is more of a comment regarding the improvements made to the Unication G5 scanner. Will Phil update his review of this scanner to mention these upgrades?
  • Does Patreon allow you to pay upfront to sponsor something for a year instead of month-to-month?
  • How are DMR and simulcast on the Whistler TMR1?
  • Does the new firmware on the BCD 996P2 and 325P2 p25 improve their function for Phase 2 simulcast?
  • What antenna and equipment does Phil recommend for someone who wants to mount a Uniden SDS-200 in their truck without drilling holes and who thinks he needs a wideband antenna?
  • What scanner does Phil suggest for someone who used to scan but hasn’t been involved in the hobby for a few years and wants to get back involved in the community?

If you have a question about scanning, please visit and leave us a message via SpeakPipe or the local number on our website.   We'll play your message on next month's #AskScannerSchool
