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.
