Programming Radio Scanners for APCO 25 – Digital GRN – NXDN – DMR
Update 18 APRIL 2020 –
http://secomms.com.au/product-category/scanners/ – A good supplier of radios here.
Due to COVID 19 – a lot more are staying at home and listening in to the emergency services.
If you are keen to own a radio and listen in – I am happy to program for a fee. No contact required, you buy the radio, post to me – I program to send back to you.
NOTE – POLICE IS NOT AVAILABLE TO LISTEN IN MOST OF NSW NOW – PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS.
The radios range in price –
UNIDEN 396XT – Not in production anymore but available to listen to most services. NSW GRN Phase 1 only
UNIDEN 436pt – Much more complex – but able to hear NXDN, DMR /MotoBRO, Phase 2 GRN and Provoice
Uniden 536 – same as above – but desk top version
Uniden SDS100/200 – both high-end models – 100 model is portable, 200 desktop version. Also Phase 1/Phase 2 GRN, NXDN, DMR / Provoice.
Whistler TRX1 /TRX 2 – very different radio to operate compared to the Uniden Brands, built-in NXDN, DMR, Phase 1/ 2 GRN. Personally, this is a brilliant radio, need to get head around the programming side.
As mentioned – I can program all radios.
Minimum cost – $45.00 without postage, depending on what you like setup and the time it takes, this cost can increase.
I have programmed hundreds of radios for many people, with a lot of happy people who would have used it for a book stops.
Radio digital Types –
- Nexedge (NXDN) – Kenwood Radios
- DMR ( Digital Mobile Radio)
- APCO25 Phase 1 and Phase 2
In the last few years, there are been remarkable changes regarding radio bands and digital. I wouldn’t say they are new kids on the block, NXDN ( Nexegdge ), DMR ( Digital Mobile Radio), MotoTRBO all are very widely used, not forgetting APCO25 used widely by GRN (Government Radio Network). AS there are more and more complicated radios being brought to market, it’s becoming apparent that these are not for the normal person to program. I have been using radios and programming for many many years, including the newer Whistler Trx-1(Portable) Trx-2 (Desktop) and Uniden 436/ 536 Hp (USA) and PT (AUS ) radios.
Changes in Bandwith
The massive changes to the bandwidth and so many more users out there, technology getting so much better, something had to be done.
So too had the need for privacy of the bands as well – as the new radios are made, the scanners become better as well.
Uniden 436 PT
Uniden 536 – P25, Phase 1 /2. NXDN – DMR- Provoice – upgradeable by firmware.

If you have trouble programming, please email me email@example.com – you can also send me your scanner and I can program for a fee! (these radio scanners are quite complicated, if settings are not correct, you will not hear anything) – especially the Digital setup – you can not operate these from the box. The software is the easiest way to program. I use software from http://www.butel.nl for Uniden radios and Whistler software for the TRX 1 and TRX 2
