I guess if and when Uniden decides and they are ready to start selling one..they will let us know..not before.

Ahhh--Mr. Upman. Nice to read your stuff. Did not know you were part of Uniden.. You've got a different scanner with the 396xt, sub banks.. Fun to play with.. So, you must know what we want for a scanner..ALLLL the p25 signals we can get.Dmr---so on so on.... How about a belt clip similar to other scanners..I like a scanner that has more than 1 knob...Like the 15x...Thx-- Wow--a 1st,,,while typing this, my close call went off on an airband. Never donethat before..A skyhawk headed for Sanford Me. Excellent feature, needs more sensitivity..

Personally I like the belt clip that comes with the Uniden scanners. What I DO NOT like is the belt clip that came on the Radio Shack Pro106 that I had. If you sat down with it on, and put any pressure on it at all, it would snap off. One additional neat thing about the Uniden belt clip is the button on the back of the scanner that it connects to... that fits really nice into a microphone holder for an inexpensive, easy to install way to mount your handheld in your automobile.

You are right about the R-S belt clip. I did it once--ONCE! Sat down in my old car and that sucker turned up and SNAP.. Problem with the 396xt clip is if you put that bnc/screw on antenna connector--it's kinda lopsided for walking.. The knob has to be higher to keep the weight on the bottom. To keep it straight.. I dropped it once, and $75.00 later/4 weeks later, it was fixed.. That other belt incident--$18.00 Technology co$t$

We don't want to give our competition a heads-up that we have a new model with particular features coming out...the longer we wait, the longer we maintain our competitive advantage with new features.

What competition??

BCT15X and BCD996XT prices dropped on Amazon.com this past week, so dealers may be reducing inventories to prepare for new models.

Since the thread starters question has been answered (by UPMan himself) and
to prevent this from turning into yet another wish-list thread I am gonna put it to
rest.
Thanks for everyone's input.
