I’ve been speaking to a few people and the new and latest idea will kill off the idiotic English statement “The Factory made my radio quieter”** or “The Factory made my radio not as I like it” and how?** All potentiometers away, nothing for people to tweak, tune or adjust! It’s all gone and only way make changes is via software and a new and very smart and clever factory mode. Gone will be the day of an extra few watts, more audio, more anything. It’s gone! Use what you’ve got as it’s not going to change at all.
The board will be smarter, the cost of which eventually will drop due to different parts being used and not any need for adjustments. So the future will be what you get is sure what you buy. This can also make repairs easier in some ways due to not so much inside can go wrong as will not be tinkered around with by users.
No way to turn up the deviation
No way to convince another 1 watt of power
No Squelch Adjustment
No RF Gain Adjustment
We’ve started to see it in the 2017 version of the Uniden 980 come to think about it but this news above is not from Uniden but seems they’ve started it also. I’ve watched many a video when someone complained about the lack of adjustments. Who will implement this? Other than the radio mentioned no news here at all so far.
So the future appears to be changing and quickly.
** Don’t like it, that’s life! It’s where I get asked these questions from. In 5 years it’s the nation that moan the most, hate new stuff the most, complain how radios are made low audio, made low power. I get the emails, and need to reply. So it’s based on received messages.
