Looks like the BCD436HP is a handheld. It is up on the FCC website now.

I just hope it has the larger display like the BC125AT has. I guess we'll find out in 10 days, won't we?

In on first page. Spot for sale.


It looks like the successor to the 396XT or a handheld Home Patrol!!! Sweet!









Photo of the back of the new release. I'm excited!

T'would appear to be taller than the 396, but that could be Fry's gigantic mug skewing my vision..

Thumbs up Great Set of Pic's

Since it's a bit taller I bet this was done too allow a 4 cell configuration instead of the 3 unless it was to allow for more space for added features in the Scanner.. bear

Update: well bear you flopped that one in looking at the pictures again I see 3 is the Magic number to power the scanner that's a slight I say slight let down for me as I was hoping if the one of the new scanners was a Handheld released it would have a 4 cells running it, It's a little easier using a 4 pact set of batteries but if the internals of the radio is set to Run on Only 3 I can understand for staying with this style...

The label right above that pic states 3 AAs..

Someone needs to get the CSIs from TV working on digging a reflection out of the wood paneling behind the radio.

I hope Uniden keeps it under $500. What with new competition from Whistler.

And for some reason, I find that highly disappointing.

<rant> If Uniden is going to manufacture scanners that operate on only three batteries, then they also need to manufacture battery chargers that will hold / charge three batteries. All the chargers I have now charge two or four batteries at a time. I hate having an extra battery just laying around. I try to keep all four cells together, but sometimes they get all mixed up. I know, probably doesn't make all that much difference, but I guess I'm just OCD like that. </rant>

It's also 5 volts so USB charging and most likely programming

Looks like another cheap plastic case with little to no protection for a several hundred dollar investment....

I'd rather just not toss it around than get a metal radio with more $ tacked on to the already several hundred dollar investment.


Matter of fact, you could just wait and get the base station version?

Yeah definitely 3AA from the label... it does look like it is a little wider at the bottom than the 396XT. It seems to flare out toward the bottom a little to me but it might just be the picture.

Grab a Powerex/MAHA charger, dude. I can charge 1 to 8 in one of mine and 1 to 4 in the other.

I'm using my 396XT right now, as I have for years daily, with no need for any more protection than it already has. The FCC label has half worn out, and I pulled the rubber cover off the programming port on purpose; other than that, it's not looking too bad at all.

Don't use your radio for 'percussive compliance' and you shouldn't have to worry about damage.

I bought a Maha charger so I can charge cells the way I want to. I can charge 1 cell individually or up to 8 cells at once. I also label my batteries in sets so that each set of 3 are always used together.

Looking at that photo, here's what I see in comparison to my 396:

- it appears to be about 1" to 1 1/2" taller.
- it has what appears to be an LED on the top, beside the control knob.
- the FUNC/MENU key (or what is said key on the 396) has not changed size nor location.
- it uses the same belt clip as the 396 (although it may be a plastic part instead of the metal lug on the 396).

I can't tell if the antenna is bigger than the 396; I tossed my stock antennas years ago for SRH789s.
