- Apr 26, 2013No mine looks more heavy duty than that one. It looks professionally made, but I'm suspecting now it may have been made by someone who made them as a hobby and just doesn't sell them anymore.

Would the stand you are referring to be the Watson QS-300 pictured here:
I believe this is no longer available from the manufacture.
The second item is a loaded question. Bottom line
is that it's hit or miss if you get one that will
actually work on your computer. Some people can,
most people can't. Spend the money on the Uniden
cable, download the drivers from Uniden, and save
yourself the potential headaches and wasted money.
