Could someone with radio experience advise a new to scanners person about the two firmware's.

I had a prior Hp-1. I downloaded 2.03 firmware.It worked a lot better on old unit.

Unit was replaced by vendor (point of purchase) ...........it had a faulty antenna connection.

New unit has 2.04 ............ I had downloaded 2.05 on old unit, and it did not work well at all after that Uniden upgrade. So I reverted to the 2.03 ..I really had much better reception with the 2.03 firmware.

Do you think new unit would be better with 2.03 than 2.04 that came installed on the HP-1, or was it due to bad connection at antenna that caused the better reception using the 2.03 ..The present 2.04 does work well..Yet I think it is a little less clear than the 2.03 firmware.

If I do go to 2.03 can it be reverted back to 2.04 if it doesn't work better ????..........

Yes, if you feel the older firmware works for you. You can find the archived firmware in the HP Yahoo Group files section:

I would think it was your scanner as I am running the most recent firmware on both of my HP-1's without any problems.

Could it be my location..rather than malfunction of my scanner. All seems to work well other than fading in and out of broadcasts. The 2.03 seemed to have far less of the fading of voice broadcasts..
