    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:

There is a thread in the forum here that has a lot of info on this and links for exactly where to go to get a shipping label specific to these issues. You cannot just send. You need to register for the repair and then they will email you a shipping label when they are ready for your radio.

Your first inquiry dealt with a specific program at Uniden for repairs under warranty for a specific radio.

For general non-warranty repairs I assume this would be the way to go. Understand there is a standard minimum charge, so you may want to evaluate the after repair value of the radio, especially if it us an older non-digital radio, as it may be cheaper to just buy a new one.

That's correct, I have other models that need repair and was no aware the repair campaign was still valid,
Just want to make sure before I start sending units to an address that does not exist My thinking was here would be a great place to start. I registered my BCD 536 last night to get on the list for repair.

Thank you.
