Question A request to Uniden

For those of you folks that are in the Australia/New Zealand area.
I submit this idea of an on-line petition to ask Uniden America to please consider releasing their equipment and support in this area of the globe.

We are not demanding that Uniden do anything, what we are looking to do however, is a "show of hands" and try and make the sales arm of Uniden see that there is still a motive market down in this region of the world for their radio scanning products.

I realise that this may be a pretty long shot, but if we can get as many signatures as we can, maybe it might be taken somewhat seriously, it might even be the first of manufacturers listening to their customers.

There has been a few people that have imported scanners here from the US, only to find they don't agree with the Aus/NZ band-plans/frequency steps.

An on-line store would be great, but then again, we need to get dialouge on this.

Petition can be found here:

It would be nice if Uniden released a scanner that supported MPT 1327 trunking which is far more popular here than the Motorola stuff.

yeah Uniden Oz really left us high and dry!

US models should be ok except for 8000mhz trunking.

Best scenario would be if one of the Australian distributors start selling GRE scanners. Or Uniden wake up or loose scanner market in Australasia for ever! I am sure we all drop would Uniden and support GRE product in this parts of the world.

Hi all, yeah i dont know about that. their has been a definate drop off with scanner users and lts be honest the casual user isnt going to buy a trunking scanner or god forbid a digital one. most people i know in my locale listen to the police and thats it, might tune in occasionally if a bushfire is on but thats the limit of it.
while there is plenty of interesting stuff to listen to the casual listener just dont care, just want it programmed to police, RFS(mostly police) and just hit scan.
cheers
Matt
