Wow, that sounded GREAT! I think I heard a couple of digital hiccups on there but even so it was barely noticeable and the audio was overall very solid. If it works that well here in Phoenix also, then I'm going to be very, VERY happy with this radio.

Thanks for sharing, Marshall!

Audio sounds excellent on that clip! Uniden has done some good work.

I am going to see if I can setup a FL with just a couple of digital voice testing
talkgroups we have on our system and try to record some video of the audio on those.
Might be later this afternoon before I can get another video online.

From the looks of your video, unlike the 536, the 436 will show which site is being used during a transmission. I take it is due to the larger screen size. In your video you were on the Primary Site, but if it was a multisite system I'm figuring the same thing would be displayed.

That's right: In the BCD436HP/BCD536HP Alerts can be tied to both TGIDs and RIDs.
More videos later.

Thank you Marshall for the videos, I look forward to more in the future.

Thanks for the videos! Will someone please explain how you can tell what site is being used on the 436 in the video?

In the last video, right above the words "RADIO SHOP TESTING", you'll see in smaller text "Primary" - that's the site name.

This was just posted on the HamStation website

BCD436HP Will SHIP first of next week

That's all there is but that was updated in the last hour or so and it's great news.

Yep. We never gave our prime site a fancy name.
Sys admin just called it "Primary".
I have always told him he should rename it to "WOPR" and see how long it takes
someone to notice

Don't you have a shop assistant to take pics?

Now you're getting ME excited. Even though once it ships from my retailer in TX it'll probably still be 2 weeks for me, knowing Canada Customs' sloth-like processing time.

Keep in mind this isn't a LSM site.

I'm not saying LSM won't/doesn't sound better on the x36-series radios, but radios prior to them didn't have issues with non-LSM simulcast sites.

Bah, you're right. We have a SmartZone system like that out here too for the County and every digital scanner released to date has worked flawlessly on it. I got all excited thinking that was a LSM system - should have clicked the link to see the details I guess.

Hopefully I'll get to see one in action on our LSM system here soon - someone local is getting their radio soon and has offered to let me have a sneak peek before mine arrives. He might even be willing to let me bring a camera and record a video of it for you guys - I asked and am awaiting a reply. I'll keep the group posted.
