LTR is *huge* and it isn't going away anytime soon.
To say "just run LTR Analyzer" is great, but that doesn't help the guy who's in the field trying to map out a system.
Up here in Toronto, there are a good number of LTR systems that are listed on RR, but there are a LOT that aren't, and a LOT that are incorrect.
It requires very little effort on Unidens part to have an LTR analyze mode...the idle bursts announce what home channels are free and what channels are busy...this is also transmitted on voice traffic. You could have even a slow system mapped in half an hour.

Most LTR systems are already "known" so having that feature is kind of a
wasted effort for Uniden, and as pointed out LTR Analyzer does the same
thing, so again it really doesn't need to be a high priority for Uniden. LTR
systems are getting fewer and fewer and the number of public safety users is
dropping as well. I know of just one in Indiana that uses it and it's really
useless for big incidents as that county learned the hard way. They have
been investigateing other systems now to see whats going to work best for
them and will dropping the LTR system as it is too limited for public
safety. And thats another reason I doubt Uniden will waste research time on
something thats just not used that much for public safety, and most scanner
users don't use them for business monitoring. I do on occasion, but not
enough to waste Unidens time, I'd prefer they work on more important
things..... and thats a long list :)
