Question Where are you ordering your HomePatrol-1 Scanner?

I am wondering where those of you ordering HomePatrol scanners are going to order them? I have checked in with a couple of vendors and asked about availability and ordering with mixed results. A few places have told me they're not taking pre-orders at all which surprised me.

Anyway, where are you ordering yours if you're getting one (in the U.S.) ??

I am waiting for someone to not like the one they ordered and then they DONATE it to me.

I'm waiting after release for a review and user comments. If all is well and to my liking I will order from one of the above reputable sellers that has one in stock.

If I decide to order, it will probably be Lentini in CT. They have always been a good source, reasonable price, and great customer service. Being close to the factory helps with delivery speed, too!

Default Lentini

I have had good experience with Alex at Lentini as well over the years, although I have ordered from the others as well. I was surprised to hear from Scannermaster that they are not taking pre-orders.

also, not knocking any scanner mfg. i still think the basic's could be improved on. put a darn scanner like the bcd396xt in a professional radio case. some more usefull feature's like a decent audio output,would come in handy. gre come's pretty close with the psr-500. i know,cost's more. lately, i'd rather grab a commercial radio or amateur ht, and run. i know they have their limitation's too.

Question

Does it really matter where you order your scanners from?

Default Ebay Upgrade

I sold my 396XT on ebay for an hefty price. It was in mint condiiton cause I hardly used it - I'm not in to programming! LOL. Anyway, I used that money to offset the price for the Home Patrol which I ordered from Scanner Master. Few more days to go!

Communication Electronics .. Communications Electronics Inc-Emergency Operations Center - Emergency phone: +1-734-995-9000
$499.95 delivered price. Ordered mine in the morning, had it on my doorstep, afternoon next day.
and Yes you need to download Sentinel from Home Patrol website .. no additional cost.
Only way to stay current on database changes.

Default uniden homepatrol 1, ordered from scanner master

on checking the various sights, i found the scanner master to be the most informative, they also had the best price i could find.

i just am somewhat confused as to the need of the software (sentential?) i am hoping to receive it in a few days.

Posthumous vote for Scanners Unlimited, in San Carlos.

When my order never arrived, I ordered from Grove.
