EXACTLY my point. What do they care who pays for it, they get their money.

Scanner shipped same day I purchased. Arrived with new larger battery and battery cover
Good deal for $552 shipped.

I don't understand the point of Uniden using a MAP. What is the reward for doing this as opposed to letting the free market reign? Scanning is a small, niche business with no mass consumer appeal (especially at this high price point). If I'm a scanner manufacturer I want to get these things into as many hands as possible wherever I can. Why complicate the matter by restricting who can sell the thing and at what price point.

You said it it is a niche business. But not as small as one would think. It is what it is that is the business model they are going with as far as we know and so be it. No more no less.

We already know "it is what it is". Your response provided no insight into the advantages of this business model, which is what I had asked.

No, post #19 doesn't answer it. If you can support your scanner yourself, perhaps by seeking help in RR, then the seller don't need to spend hours with a buyer trying to explain things to him and that cost can be deducted from the price. It's a buyers choise, either pay more to get the support from a seller, who never can compete with the combined knowledge in RR, or you don't need it and get a lower price from a seller who has no support.

It's always been like that, buy from local supplier to get help and to easily return products you are not happy with, or buy the same product cheap from china without getting any kind of support.

Try to get the help and support for AMAZON that Jeff from The Ham Station gives his customers.
It will not happen and Ray Charles can see that.

According to UPMan, "in order to protect the Uniden brand".

It was a very good price. It was a one day sale and I shared it with this group in post #274.

I ordered mine on Friday from Scannermaster, $649 shipped. I got an email confirmation about an hour after the purchase that it had shipped with a delivery of this Wednesday. Canít wait.
