Digital close call function on 3500 xlt

Postby Landy204 » Fri Oct 21, 2016 6:54 pm

A question for the more informed out there......

If I was to perform the discriminator tap mod on my Uniden 3500, would the close call feature then pick up digital transmissions along with its normal analogue system?

All I would be looking for is the frequency, which I can then run on my DV1.

Regards,

the close call will pick up all transmissions that are of sufficient strength above the background as I have discovered after sitting in kings lynn for an hour and only getting non analogue hits even though the data skip function was active

And does it show the frequency of the digital transmission? I assume it does.

I've found this only works if its a digital repeater that's transmitting nearby but you get nothing at all if on the uniden if its simplex comms .

Yes, I agree, this is my experience as well.

Same here, It's how I found out my local shopping centre went to the dark side. I kept getting close call hits on 453.3375.
