• 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:

Is there a shoulder mic that I could use with my bcd436hp? Also, I need an amplifier because the audio jack is meant for headphones. I am already using the shoulder mic in conjunction with the radio, but it is really quiet.

We put a lot of thought and experimentation into incorporating Bluetooth, actually. In addition to increasing the size and cost of the scanner, it would have introduced a very high level of RF noise into the scanner. That last reason is also why the Wi-Fi dongle on the 536 is a dongle, and not integrated. In general, transmitters in close proximity to wide-band receivers are a poor combination.
I understand this post is like 3 years old found upon looking for something else with the 536 but I am just curious as to how Unication can make pager receivers with bluetooth technology without any RF compromise/issues at hand?. I am sure there is a way to make bluetooth a tool with Uniden Scanner within the scanner.

I suspect that because pagers are limited to a certain band, incorporating Bluetooth isn't as problematic. Scanners deal with a lot more bands/frequency ranges.
