Understanding Uniden Systems and Groups
Do you understand the difference between a Group and a System your Uniden programming?
What You Will Learn in This Week's Podcast:
In this episode, Phil explains use cases for groups and how to set them up, and how to create quick keys for them.
- Groups are important to optimize your scanners for trunking.
- Systems are the container for your trunking and conventional systems in your DMA Scanner.
- Groups are where you store your frequencies or Trunk Group and Unit IDs.
- You can have up to 20 groups within the system.
- Each type of group and system can have their own quick keys defined.
- Using groups allows you to organize different precincts and battalions by location, for example, grouping all Manhattan NYPD frequencies separate from citywide NYPD frequencies.
- While you can add up to 20 groups per system, you can only map out 10 group quick keys.
