Unication Voice Pager Receivers

From The RadioReference Wiki

Welcome to the Unication voice pager wiki page. Please see the official Unication P25 Voice Pager page for models and specifications.

Unication has developed a couple models of receive only P25 capable public safety pagers. These pager/receivers are intended for public safety users and therefore have an I/Q demodulator and narrower filters for band specific needs. They work generally without any "tweaks" that may be needed for a scanner. However, these pager/receivers are lacking several basic features found in most scanners. A beta of a scanning feature is in the testing phase.

These units are capable of both Phase 1 and Phase 2.

These units are commercial grade receivers designed for public safety users, not scanners. They are designed to monitor a single trunked site at a time or a small set of conventional VHF / UHF frequencies.


Comparison to a Digital Scanner

Similarities

  • Excellent P25 Simulcast reception
  • Two-tone paging (conventional or [some] P25)
  • Color display
  • Compact size/weight
  • Battery lasts a long time
  • Harsh environment design

Differences

  • No "on the fly" programming
  • Can only monitor a single control channel at a time (no multi-site or multiple system scanning)
  • Cannot mix scanning of P25 control channel and conventional frequencies.
  • G4 is only 700/800
  • G5 adds a band but you have to choose which one (VHF, 380, 400, 450) conventional analog or P25 and/or P25 Phase 1&2 Trunking. DMR Conventional/Trunking(Paid upgrade)
  • Doesn't support Motorola Smartnet/SmartZone Analog, EDACS, LTR, NXDN
  • Programming software (PPS) design isn't intuitive
