    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I got an early warning of an upcoming lightning deal on the 536 if anyone is interested. Starts Saturday at 10:09 am it says, but times may be off as I am MST and not sure they are. I use keepa.com for alerts. Don't want to see anyone interested miss out. No price info.

If was the same as the 436 I will be adding a 2nd
I recently took advantage of an Amazon Lightning Deal on the 436 for $311.46.

Uniden 436 List = $599.99
Purchase = $311.46
311.46/599.99 = .5191

Uniden 536 List = $699.99
699.99*.5191 = $363.36

If I did the above correctly, $363.36 for a 536 would be the "same" good deal as the $311.46 for a 436 a few weeks back.

There may be other ways to analyze these values.

I just grabbed a BCD536HP at $395.98 plus tax, free shipping.

I procrastinated long enough on this purchase. Hopefully it is from a good batch. I will probably buy the DMR upgrade down the line.

Once again I will be able to hear why the police helicopters are orbiting over my neighborhood every few days. I used to have a Motorola Spectra doing this work (I have the skillz!) but P25 Phase 2 has put that solution out of reach.

Any tips or advice for a new owner?

I don't need another 536HP, but I found a deal on the Panasonic BQ-CC17SBA 4 battery charger. You can charge individual batteries with it, which is a feature I want. The White one is available for $14.54. I opted for the tacticool black one, which is not on sale.
