First Impressions

When I first held the Uniden UH950s I thought to my self “Wow! It actually feels very solid!” I instantly liked the size, look and the solid and durable feel. Looks and feelings aside, let’s get down to business and analyse the features of the UH950s.


The antenna of the radio seems to be just the right size, not too long and not too short. The white backlit LCD display is easily readable. In my testing of the audio quality while transmitting I found the audio to be remarkably clear and intelligible compared to some lower to medium end Uniden radios that we also have.
The operating time of 27 hrs on low power is 3 times more than comparable models of Uniden’s competitors which is quite impressive. Long operating time is especially important for situations where you will be spending time out in the field and not having access to the charger.
In terms of the range, it is advertised to go anywhere up to 15 km. This is only true if the topography of the environment you’re operating the radio in does not include urban infrastructure which may prevent the signal from getting out. Through testing, I have found that the range is indeed as advertised.
I really like the Boost power setting and have found this very useful as it overrides the hi/lo power setting which allows you to transmit at the maximum 5 watts. This saves you the hassle of having to go into the menu to change the power setting.
The UH950s features both CTCSS (Continuos Coded Squelch) and DCS. Having the ability to have two types of privacy settings with this radio is really handy. We tend to prefer DCS as it has a much cleaner “cutoff” (i.e. static) at the end of a transmission.
The voice scramble feature is excellent! It essentially “encrypts” you communications so as to prevent eavesdropping from other people. This scrambling features is unique to and only compatible with similar Uniden radios. So, in other words you can only use two Uniden UH950s’ to utilise this fantastic technology.
Probably the biggest selling feature of this radio is Uniden’s brand new Master Scan Technology. What this does is that it allows you to have continuous communication with your buddies without any interruption whatsoever. How does it work? Well to put it simple, “this network scan function searches for other radios that share the same CTCSS or DCS tone. When the radio detects a signal with no code or an incorrect code, it switches to an unused channel when transmitting. By scanning only group channels, radios in the network will be able to detect and receive group transmissions, offering continuous communication without interruption.”
All without you even knowing or noticing it!
The Rapid Scan feature basically scans through all 80 channels twice the speed as current stock standard technology.
The detachable belt clip is another great feature. Originally, I didn’t like it due to what I thought was a rather wonky design but later found its flexibility and the option for it to be removed, very useful.
Another great feature of the UH950s is that it is waterproof (rated JIS7). I have tested this out several times on 45 minute bush walks in the pouring rain and it worked satisfactorily.
The side screw on external speaker microphone attachment is quite a step up from the top screw in ones on previous models such as the UH076. In my testing I found that the waterproof bung that kept it shut wore out over a period of 6 months. The one on the UH950s is quite similar to Motorola’s and Icoms. I’m very impressed with it.
The nice compact design of this radio makes it the perfect fit for a daypack, go bag or bug out bag (emergency kit). Talking about putting the UH950s into emergency kits, its always a good idea to bring along some form of backup communication with you whenever you go out.
In terms of accessories, it comes with a water resistant, external speaker mic which I find very handy especially when I don’t want to constantly unclip the radio unit from my belt to transmit. I just find it very convenient. There is also an earpiece microphone which is perfect for clear and covert communications in noisy crowded areas. Of course there’s the AC adaptor, charger cradle and a cigarette lighter adaptor which comes in very handy for charging the radio in your vehicle whilst on the move.


So far, I haven’t found any major glaring faults at all with the UH950s. I endeavour to test it out in the long term and will provide an update if possible. While I wouldn’t make a big thing out of it, I do find the on/off, volume knob a bit too small making it a little difficult to operate whilst wearing gloves. This is especially true for farmers, cattle station workers and firefighters who may be wearing gloves while operating this radio. The front buttons were operated ok with very little difficulty whilst wearing a standard pair of leather work riggers.
Another issue with this radio is that it uses lithium ion batteries which are not readily available and are not of a generic type (e.g. AA or AAA). So its probably a wise idea to purchase some extra batteries from Uniden via their accessory webstore as they will come in handy in an emergency.


After several weeks of testing out in the bush, I came to the conclusion that the Uniden UH950s is indeed rugged and its capabilities exactly as advertised. So I rate it at a solid 5 out of 5 stars hands down for its innovative, well thought out design, craftsmanship, quality and durability. I especially liked the fact that it had a lot more features for the price than comparable units from competiting brands such as GME and Oricom.
