Talking My New Uniden BCD 536/436 HP Sucks.

I do not have either yet but i figured might just as well start a thread because i am sure more rants are coming and they might just end up here.

LOL!! I love it! I'll start:

I'm really disappointed with my 436HP. I ordered it a month ago and still can't seem to find it in my house ANYWHERE!! Why did Uniden make an invisible, intangible scanner? And worse, WHY DID I BUY AN INVISIBLE, INTANGIBLE SCANNER! What a waste of $500. If I could find it, I could turn it up so I could at least hear it, but no such luck. Damn you, Uniden! I'm done buying Uniden invisible scanners. If I can't see the scanner then I'm not buying it. Lesson learned!

I really like mine, it didn't cost me anything, I didn't have to program it and it has absolutely no static.

You recently got a BCD 536, and until now all you had was a Bearcat 210? Yep I'd say you are way overdue for a scanner upgrade... about 30 years overdue.

My post was an attempt at humor...I don't have a BCD536...which is why it cost nothing, is easy to program and has no static.

I'm guessing it doesn't get Edacs Provoice or Motobro, just like the more expensive scanners!
