I purchased two SDS200 scanners on June 28, 2019. One came from Amazon. The other came from Ham Radio Outlet. Both were $699.99 at the time.
The SDS200 rivals the Unication G5 for P25 LSM systems. I find that it needs a minimum of -88 dBm signal strength to reliably decode P25 LSM systems.
Surprisingly, it does not work as well as the Whistler TRX1 or TRX2 on DMR systems.
I set the Global Auto Filter option to “Wide Normal” for best performance on the Ohio-MARCS-IP P25 System. If this filter is set to “Normal” the signal strength drops by 10 – 15 dB which, in my location, makes receiving the MARCS much worse.
I would definitely buy the SDS200 again, especially if you have a LSM system you want to listen to.
