The cable used on the Uniden DMA scanners is not a regular micro USB cable. It's not proprietary to Uniden, but as I recall, it was mostly used on cameras.

Same cable on the home patrol works on my garmin GPS.

Interesting that the frequency range includes 1.2 to 1.3 GHz. IIRC, the HP doesn't extend to this range, though others have in the past.

Nice to see continuous coverage between 25 and 512Mhz retained too (if the info in the link is accurate).
Now, if there is a detachable remote head too.....

Yea that is a nice coverage spread, I wonder when in the near future we'll see a full return of the 800mhz spectrum) with Cellphones were there at now it would be nice to see the full band return or at least the partial part of it..

Side Note Question to ask: Mr. Jay hey what the weather like up in your area is it really getting cold any snow flying or on the Ground.. Thanks Ra..

It's 0530 as I write this getting up on my way into work. We're in the middle of a cold snap; temp is -16C (+3F). We have had ~6-10 inches of snow each of the past two weekends. The first batch melted swiftly but the rest looks like it will stay a while. Luckily the new truck has heated seats.

One of my all-time favorite scanners, which I still use regularly, is the Radio Shack PRO-26 which was manufactured by Uniden. It has continuous coverage from 25 MHz to 1.3 GHz. I bought it instead of the BC-3000 because it used individual batteries instead of a sealed pack that was in Uniden's own products at that time. I think it has the same specs except for the number of memory channels. It was in my not humble opinion the best portable of the mid 1990s.

Quite a bit of difference between the Pro-26 you refer to and this Pro-26:

Realistic Pocket Scanner Pro 26 FM Monitor Receiver with 4 Crystals | eBay

Wonder how much confusion using the same model numbers for different radios caused?

I'm betting that guy mis-typed the model number. This is the PRO-26
Pro-26 - The RadioReference Wiki

And this is the BC-3000XLT of which the PRO-26 is a clone.

Radio Shack has reused a lot of model numbers over the years.
I once bought a service manual for the Pro-26 and it was really for the Pro-26 but not for the current model, it was for the much older crystal model!

I've even seen them reuse their internal model numbers.

You can find it if you search that site that has all the old RadioShack catalogs online. I can't recall that sites URL but it will show they used the same model numbers.

OOPS! You are right! And I had a crystal PRO-26, and forgot about it. It was the last crystal scanner that they sold.

Uniden used BC-100XLT twice, I think. The first one was an update of the 16 channel first programmable portable with tubes for the batteries to prevent the batteries from breaking contact when the scanner was shaken or bumped, which caused it to lose it's memory and having to be reprogrammed. The second BC-100XLT was a 100 channel portable made maybe 5 or 6 years later with a slide-on sealed battery pack.

Guys, let's keep in mind that this thread is for discussion of the new Uniden BCD536HP not for reminiscing about scanners you used to own.

Please stay on topic.

Thanks.
