Bob, yes...I am aware that it is not a trunking scanner nor digital. For what I listen to, I did not require either of those things.
After much fussing with the BC355N, I opted to just make that my new base at home and bought the BC125AT to use in the car and as a carry-around.
What I was wondering about was why they designed it to NOT charge when connected to AC or DC if the radio is ON. Also, I saw in other threads that the charger is based on timing...not the actual charge of the batteries. i was hoping that Upman (who works for Uniden) could chime in on that.
My Scanners: Uniden Bearcat BC355N, Uniden Bearcat BC125AT, RadioShack PRO-2014, Bearcat 210XL
