• 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:

Don't ship in the original factory box. You probably would not get it back,

You could ship USPS, instead of FedEx or UPS, but be sure to use a USPS option that provides a valid tracking number.

Include only the scanner. No batteries, SD card, antenna (remove the SMA-BNC adapter as well), belt clip, and don't include the USB cable.

The repair request form & payment, sure. If the Request form does not adequately explain what you're sending it in for, then a short, clearly written, note might be in order.

I have shipped by both USPS and UPS. USPS Priority mail is probably the fastest. UPS is slow, takes 5 days from the East Coast. DO NOT send the original box, IT WILL NOT be returned or at least do not expect it to be returned. Bubble wrap well, include repair info with description of repair. If the unit is being sent in for the RTC clock battery, then you should use the campaign for this, Uniden will pay shipping both ways.

I have a unit it for repair and I am getting a bit worried that they are either backed up or something is up. My prior repair was posted with an email update within a few day of receiving the unit. Its been a week since my unit was receive and no word and no update checking online.
