• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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 currently have a BCT-15 and like my PSR-300 and was thinking of possibly selling my BCT-15 and buying a PSR-400 (Base version of PSR-300). It seems like GRE is going to be more frequent and up-to date on firmware updates, and seems like you can do more on the GRE.

Maybe I haven't explored my Uniden enough, and I know in the end it all comes down to personal preference, but I was curious if you guys had anything to say one way or the other.

Maybe if there are people who have both or have used both and have compared, or maybe if you just like (or dislike) one over the other and why. Looking for any and all input. Thanks.

I don't have a PSR400 ... but I do have a bct15, and it is freakin awesome and I would never ever get rid of it haha ... I think what I like about it the most is the display size and the dynamic memory ... both of which the 400 lacks :)

happy scanning :cool:

I just purchased the PSR-400 and it is awesome. RX is, in my opinion, as good as it gets. Plus, it has little to no front end overload. Sound is great, too. I've had the RS Pro-164 and I like the 400 much better (better rx and much 'bigger' sound). Depends on if you want, HH verses base.

For me and what I want/need in a scanner, it does not get better than the 400. When my city goes digital, it's a PSR-600 for me! However, I will say the screen size and DMA on the Unidens are advantageous over GRE, in my opinion.
