I agree with "Brian" (chicagostretch), here in ILL on Starcom Digital
700/800 this firmware is still not the answer to quality audio and
decoding....A great scanner friend of mine just loaded the recent
firmware for my GRE500 and even me being a Uniden "very good customer"
have to admit the GRE audio quality and decode of Starcom is
EXCELLENT...Plus, we did not need a checksum # or registration to load
this firmware (1.6-1.3) which was loaded with new radio features like
RadioID's and loaded the firmware in minutes...Mr. Opitz is a
excellent rep for Uniden and they have made some very good featured
products but ease of loading new firmware and new features needs to
be re-thought about...
