I do not too bad with my humble set up in Runcorn, a Skyscan on a shed roof in the middle of a housing estate. Or sitting in a pub in the middle of Warrington with my 2042 wired to my laptop and hidden under my rucksack. I've never searched for DMR from Halton Castle using my 2042, there is nowhere to plug it in for a start... I've tried using my SDR dongle from inside the Castle pub, but not a lot was heard, plus I had nothing magnetic to sit the micro antenna on.

I have a Diamond X30 too, it's a bit limited on what it hears on uhf around 450-460. even though my two way radios go there.

Baseband audio available from pin nine on the TK10420 and from what I remember the same as the Pro2006 which is more commonly covered by websites. If not online it is almost certainly covered by the Bill Cheek books which the websites were all based on. You should be able to get those books ordered easily enough from Wallyton library if it hasn't been turned into another shop yet.

.....from back in the day when there was less of the uniden cack polluting the market.

I didn't...don't need to look for too much evidence for what I did say though do we ;-)

Upset me? That's an odd leap. Do all people from Wigan eat pies? Does everyone from Widnes smell? Northern towns, in particaular, have a rich heritage of banter. I find it rather endearing. The 'towns' must like it...why else would one of them put a statue of a giant concrete penis on a colliery spoil heap?
(and in what way does a giant penis celebrate an industrial heritage of glass-making, brewing, medical products or coal mining?)

Bill Cheek died years ago and his scanner books will no doubt have been out of print for years. Did you know that Warrington had the first rate funded public library in Great Britain? If the council there get their way it might the first major town in the UK to not have a rate funded public library. History fascinates me
....'links'...do you not know how to use a search engine or a library? I guess if people don't use it then the council is right after all.

Any chance of this topic getting back as to what it was intended, not hijacked with irrelevant posts?
