Update 1 Feb 2022

http://secomms.com.au/product-category/scanners/ – A good supplier of radios here.

NOTE –  POLICE IS NOT AVAILABLE TO LISTEN in ALL of NSW NOW – PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS. 

I will not answer any questions regarding monitoring of Police in NSW .

The radios range in price –

UNIDEN 396XT – Not in production anymore but available to listen to most services. NSW GRN Phase 1 only, still a popular radio and still capable of receiving many emergency services.

UNIDEN 25000 CHANNEL DIGITAL UBCD396XT DIGITAL SCANNER

UNIDEN 325P2 – an upgrade of the 396XT, with Phase 2 GRN available, also now with firmware, NXDN, Motobro /DMR listening. If you like the 396XT – this radio operates the same, using same radio profiles, importing is easy, programming the same way. Using only 2 batteries, not 3, charges by USB not by a power pack.

UNIDEN 436PT – Much more complex – but able to hear NXDN, DMR /MotoBRO, Phase 2 GRN and Provoice, would need to pay for upgrade of firmware to enable these formats. Order here https://secomms.com.au/product/uniden-ubcd436pt-scanner/

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.

Radio digital Types – 

  • Nexedge (NXDN) – Kenwood Radios
  • DMR ( Digital Mobile Radio)
  • MotoTRBO
  • 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.
