Uniden BCD396XT Review

Uniden Bearcat BCD396XTUNIDEN BCD396T Hand-Held Radio Scanner - Review.

The UNIDEN BCD396T Hand-Held Radio Scanner we liked very much particularly as it could be used either as a hand-held unit, a mobile unit, in a vehicle, or as a home based radio scanner.

The BCD396T is packed with features such as the automatic scanning of frequencies from 25 MHz to 1.3 GHz. It also comes pre-programmed with channels including police, fire, ambulance to name but a few.

There is plenty of memory storage available to the user with the ability of storing 2500 frequencies. We found that the facility to memory check the device useful for evaluating available memory. We also liked the auto store feature that will automatically program channels for the user.

The "close call" feature is a nice little feature of the UNIDEN BCD396T, this will instantly locate and tune to signals that are being transmitted locally. The user can program the scanner to alert them when there is RF activity on a user specified channel using the channel alert feature.

The BCD396T hand-held radio scanner uses SAME (Specific Area Messaging Encoding) for weather and weather emergency alerts.

There is a free download from the Internet available that will enable the scanner to be connected and programmed via a computer, we found this particularly useful, once this facility is used you will probably never program the BCD396T manually again.

The UNIDEN BCD396T is a small and light hand-held radio scanner that is packed full of innovative technology. In our tests we found it was very battery friendly. The display is easy to read and the sound quality was good. Overall we give this a thumbs up, once you have come to grips with manually programming it. This may take a while for the uninitiated but it is well worth it once mastered.
