Nice unit! Though, I am disappointed that it seems that everything these days is made of plastic.I feel if this were to drop onto the floor, it would crack very easily.We bought this because recently crime in our area has been on the rise, which is so sad being this neighborhood was very quiet. This actually alerted us when a break in was occurring in our neighborhood, and we were on the look out when we heard it come over the scanner.What I like about this unit,..
I'm a little stunned by the bad reviews. I couldn't disagree more. This is a great scanner. For the roughly 100 bucks, you really get a lot.It's handheld, which means it travels nicely. It's great for road trips and can keep you in the loop on weather, accidents, and umm, "other" police activities. It scans CB, FRS/GMRS/MURS and HAM bands which covers pretty much all of the individual use bands. The first two (CB, FRS/GMRS/MURS) are pretty useful on trips too..
The BCD436HP is an up-to-date scanner capable of monitoring virtually all of the popular trunking systems in the US and Canada. You need to check the types of trunking systems in your area. Chances are high, that you will be able to receive them.The features of the radio are well documented at various sites on the Web, including ... and .... So, my review is limited to what you commit yourself to, when you buy this scanner.This is not your father’s scanner..
Had a homepatrol 1 nothing wrong with it. When the homepatrol 2 came out my advice to all scanner owners, Buy this! I am getting Twice what I was hearing on HP 1 . Had it up and running in no time. Pulled in Wilmington Ohio, 54 miles away. Thanks To Uniden I will recommend this to anyone.Money Well Spent.
