Anyone have one of the new Unidens yet? If they do a better job with P25 simulcast I'll get one for my feed scanner. I'm following the thread out in the main forum, but I'd like to hear from somebody here about how they're performing on IDPS. TIA.
Well, it'll probably be a few weeks before I pull the BCD996T out of my vehicle and install the BCD536HP. Though, I am very interested in how the new scanner will work out.If you get a chance to do it mobile.. and test in multiple locations...
Tim, performance outside the city but close enough (such as Brownsburg) should be more ideal than being in the city. Has your family member tried a directional antenna?If anyone would happpen to buy a Uniden HP 436 or a Uniden HP 536 I would like to offer a test area for the scanners in my home in my driveway near 7900 North Michigan Road. I would also like to see a test in the area of 86Th and Michigan Road.The problem was spelled out by MILF. The problem is with IDPSC with all scannersl all over metro Indianapolis/Marion County. Outside Marion County near 56Th and State Road 267 on the northside of Brownsburg in Hendricks county you cannot hear IDPSC. This is from a member of my family who has a digital scanner The audio is not clear and is garbled. He has no problems with safe-t with the Hendricks Co. simucast site. In Indianapolis/Marion County Safe-t is very loud with a great signal and the audio levels are easy to hear with no garbing.
I'll endeavor to get one posted this evening. My first impression (Saturday to today) is that the 536 does MUCH better than my 996T and noticeably better than my HP-1 in mobile use on DPSC along the south and west sides of Indianapolis and into eastern Hendricks County. I've been pretty tied up with some other stuff and have not had time to spend with it like I wanted to, but so far I am very happy and plan to rotate out the older scanners to be replaced with 536s.How about someone posting a you tube video of a Uniden HP-436 or a Uniden HP-536 scanning Metro Indianapolis/Marion County, Indiana?
