Changes at Uniden

Does the fact that Uniden only has 1 employee affect your decision to buy from them in the future?

Alrighty, so my followup video is now live.


If you've been following this thread, it's really all the same content we've been talking about here, putting everything together with more detail regarding Kuni's role, Attowave's role, how this should affect us as Uniden customers moving forward, and so forth.

I think vortex should have had a better handle on kunis role at uniden before releasing his first video. Without having the full information on kunis role and responsibilities at uniden and that “he’s the only guy doing detectors at uniden” was very misleading and inaccurate and caused a lot of needless anxiety and panic on the forum. His video today explains it a bit better and it seems like he’s just kind of a project manager organizing everything. I really have no worries about future products from uniden.

Great Job as usual Vortex! Frankly I could not do what you do... I'm more jaded and cynical, so my video's would not be so pleasant to watch. Hopefully this video will to help blow things over for folks on both sides.

I agree that I could have done a better job explaining it in retrospect. I did go into some detail about how the engineering was outsourced to other companies, but clearly that information went right over people's heads. Lesson learned and my apologies for not being sufficiently clear in the original video.

I was going to consider upgrade to R7 when it came out if the tests were good. Now I might hold off and keep my R3 and wait to see what Kuni and Radenso do together. Maybe the range of the R3 with the filtering of the Radenso ProM, etc might be worth waiting for....

Great job! This video made more sense and I feel this get your original point across better.

And my user name is visible in the video. I’m YouTube famous! Lol.

lol, yeah I hope this round two video clears things up in terms of the Uniden stuff. It's funny.. the overarching point of my original video was more about how I think how Radenso will become even stronger now that they have Kuni, but there was so much concern about the Uniden stuff that it seemed to overshadow the Radenso part.

Something that I've found really interesting is the importance and impact of one person in charge. I know a lot of credit goes to the engineers who actually build this stuff (I've seen a lot of "Who cares? He's not the engineer and he's replaceable" type of comments), but something I've learned is it's not as simple placing an order off a menu and having an engineer do it. Lots of things we want they may say no to and so the person in charge would have to keep pressing to get stuff done. They may also not even understand the importance of what we need in the first place, especially when they live and drive in another part of the world altogether. There's a lot of stuff that is done that I'm learning about that most of us have zero awareness of. Unfortunately some of this stuff isn't really my information to share, plus I probably wouldn't be the best person to turn around and explain it since it is admittedly outside my area of expertise, (I'm more of a technical/product guy myself, not so much a corporate/business guy), but it really has given me much more appreciation for the non engineers and the contributions they make.

This stuff wasn't covered in either video and it's another point that's coming to mind now... :)

Ah well.

I totally agree with the above. A lot of needless panic due to a poorly thought out first video that left out important information.

I have been shocked at some of those ridicules responses here and on the YouTube video, I really wish Vortex researched this issue and reached out to Uniden for some comments before he rolled out this video and caused a panic with some people. For example long before anyone even knew of this person we were helping Uniden and working with engineering and that still continues today and that does not change. Support for the existing platforms will continue and plans for future products will continue. Everyone needs to just chill and in a few months this change in personnel will not even be remembered.
I don't understand his reason for announcing the change.
One thing is certain, Radenso is likely going to benefit from his announcement.

Ah interesting. Yeah honestly I just figured you guys would appreciate having a better appreciation for things that go on that we don't normally get to hear about. I may have been wrong and I'll keep that in mind in the future.

AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS NOTICED THAT ALL THE " BLASTER"
POSTERS s AGAINST @Vortex have

20 OR LESS POSTS !!!!!!!!!!!!

NEWBIES !!!!!

STRANGE .... VERY STRANGE !!!!!

I smell something and ....

IT's NOT RIGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Vortex This APPEARs to me to be a
COORDINATED EFFORT TO DISCREDIT
YOU , OUR RDFORUM , our NON-BIAS status , OUR INTEGRITY , and OUR DIGNITY !!!!!!!!

These are very well worded ATTACKS AGAINST ALL OF US .... that I warned you ... were coming your way.

SOMETHING doesn't smell right !!!

These attacks worded as if they have inside knowledge while denying they have inside knowledge ... are a CONCENTRATED TACTIC to DISCREDIT YOU VORTEX OUR FAMILY AND OUR FORUM.

TREAD LIGHTLY PEEPs ... something is fishy on this thread and the ensuing threads of the same nature

TO ALL WHO MIGHT BE UP TO SOMETHING ....
@Vortex doesn't sell out, he is constantly challenged to be non-biased, yet maintains that delicate balance !!!

For anyone reading these ATTACK PILE ON VORTEX POSTs. .... YES THIS IS A BIG DEAL ...

Newbies that havent been here for more than couple months dont quite comprehend the effect to the industry this will cause.

Will Uniden survive ??? ... Yeah.
BUT IMHO RADENSO JON will slowly take control of the Industry.

JUST AS I PREDICTED 3 YEARs AGO !!

My Pro M is silent in Suburbs and even City Proper !!
The ProM has better OFF-AXIS and better Distance than the ONCE KA KING REDLINE -ORIG, ALBEIT my R3 does get much better Distance and better than or par to OFF-AXIS shots, is Digital, is better sensitivity.
My RCM OBVIOUSLY has the same HORN gets the OFF-AXIS shots like Pro M and R4 and Great Distance as well being a Remote !!

Owning and Running all the DETECTORS i mentioned above I discussed I use DAILY!! Throughout all terrains scenarios.

RADENSO has SOLID DETECTORs and NOW they have a Virtual Lock on their competitors too. !!

Yeah ... as HAVE STATED FOR LAST THREE YEARS ... RADENSO IS GOING STRAIGHT TO THE TOP !!!

Please check my disclaimers as I'm not
Sponsored, paid, transactionally, Financially, Socially, or CONTRACTUALLY to RADENSO at all ... period. As a matter of Fact I am just a person who Rights the Wrongs.

Just sayin to anyone who is reading this
KUNI is a biiiiig deal and a great win !!
FINALLY ... I sure hope this doesn't lessen our RD MANUFACTURER's competition, but fear it will.

Watch it Uniden ... Radenso's coming for ya ...

i appreciated the news report - maybe a good idea to start a news forum for these type of threads.. did any of our members apply for the job opening? maybe one of the beta testers?...

Much Better explanation from the 2nd video Vortex. Obviously it was very easily taken the wrong way on the first video. The R3 is such a great radar at a great price and everything has been rolling along so smoothly that when you hear some big news that the top guy is leaving it just was very concerning. Your 2nd video explains it much better. TYVM for clearing alot of this up...
