I could have ordered from amazon last week and had it by now, only paying 5$ more.

I just figured scanner master would have been the first to ship.
Aren't the prices at Scanner master the highest prices?

Good for you. I preordered at HRO online on Dec.29, 2013. Still nothing. Been watching other posts about people walking in and getting them, or ordering recently and getting them. I talked to the Atlanta store a couple times and they rudely gave me different stories and no set time to expect it. The manager sent me a rude email when I asked where my receipt for full payment was. They sent an email to me for the reservation, but not for the full payment later, so they originally had the correct information. So much for customer service on a "Reservation" placed last year.

Everybody beware HRO !!!!

No. They are the same as everyone else.... $499 for the 436. I paid $13 for shipping.

But Scanner Master has a 30 day return policy with no re-stocking fee.

That is what made me buy from them. I do not want to spend that kind of money and learn the scanner does not receive the simulcast in my area. So I can put it to the test for 3 weeks or more. If it works... then it's a good $500 investment.... if it doesn't, I can return it with nothing lost except shipping from and to SM.

All the other retailers either had a "no return" policy, or a 10 day return policy PLUS they all had a 15-20% re-stocking fee.

I didin't know that. Thanks for telling me that. Maybe I will get the BCD 536 from them if it will also be reasonably priced.

Default Good Job Universal Radio

Heard that Universal Radio was shipping 536's on 28-Jan.
Pre-ordered a 436 on 29-Jan. Got a confirmation right away.
My BCD436HP was in my hands just ahead of the "Big Snow" on 04-Feb.
$499.95 + $9.95 shipping by UPS from Ohio.
Just in time to hear the first weather related crash with injuries.
Nice Job Universal Radio.

As of this morning Scanner Master has them in stock and plenty from what they said and will price match anyone but won't match shipping but you can at least save a few dollars on the unit price.

Solid Signal shows them to be in stock but they are not. They won't have anymore until mid-March.

That blows! It's amazing how many people pre-ordered while other (like me) strolled in, bought one, and got it sooner than them. It's unfair. Marketing at its finest.

I ordered one from Amazon through "Abetterwaytobuy" using Amazon Prime. Shipped within a day, supposed to be here tomorrow. Cost was $515 and since it was Prime free 2-day shipping.

I will post updates once it arrives. Seems pretty smooth so far.

I'm guessing that current shipping status and inventory stocks of the 536HP may be impacted by this announcement:

http://forums.radioreference.com/uni...ml#post2124440

I was going to make a trip today to my local HRO that shows them in stock, but I'm thinking I will delay that for the time being.

I ordered both a 436 and a 536 from Amazon through "Abetterwaytobuy" also... We'll see how long it takes to get a tracking number.

I can count on one hand how many times I have used the headphone jack on my 996XT so that is a non-issue for me. I figured I can enjoy the scanner until they start the repair process.

It's madness, I'm sure - I don't think there's ever been a scanner that has generated more buzz than these units.

EDIT: Just got the email: MY ORDER HAS SHIPPED!!!! FINALLY! Best news I've had all week! Thank you Scanner Master!

So have you finally received your scanner yet?

I picked-up my BCD436HP from Walcott Radio at a cost of $489.95...$10 cheaper than other places. Looks like they are in stock and ready to ship! Grab one while supplies last!
