I read Motorola, mentioned in the same bite as EDACS and LTR, to mean Type II trunking.

Good, that means all the more chance for me to get one.

I have TRBO and NXDN users in my neighborhood, but I'm not going to pout like a 3 year old over it.

If people start jumping to the new models and get rid of their old, maybe a plethora of pre-owned remote heads will show up on eBay now and go for a reasonable price for a used item. Just hope they aren't all bundled with a 996 or 396 in the listings.

These scanners sound very exciting.

I was surprised that the handheld was so large, but it sounds like streaming my scanner to my smartphone is the way of the future. I hope its controllable etc over the internet so my scanner at home is controllable and listenable where ever I am. Sound quality has to be good on the android app though, none of this 8 or 16 kbps noise.

Love the idea of having all the good parts of the home patrol combined with the good parts of the 996XT combined with more functionality and system types. I really need the P25 simulcast to be solid though.

This is going to be so much fun to learn and master these scanners! Is it possible we'll have these scanners til 2020? Seems so far out now...

UPMAN - you guys did an awesome job in raising the bar.

X2-TDMA I thought that was the same as phase ll? Atleast they got the LCN for edacs/ltr finder which is good.

No DMR is a huge disappointment.

Too many agencies around here moving to DMR to make this a viable option at that price.

The notion of using a smartphone to control a scanner is very interesting. Would this be one smartphone to one scanner, or could several smartphones control the same scanner.

Where I'm headed in this. Let's say the local TV station has a scanner in their news room. Can all of the reporters out and about covering stories listen/control the scanner back at the station?

Any mention of how many talkgroups and id's per system will it program or will it now depend on the memory. Trying to store the Louisiana LWIN system on the BCD996T with only 20 talkgroups and 250 id's fills up fast. Would be nice to store every talkgroup and id on the new scanner would be nice.

This would be like having two remotes for the same TV - always fighting over the channel. Right? You're trying to listen and she changes it to listen to something else. I don't think that would work very well unless it had two separate tuners which he did not mention. So...doesn't sound feasible or logical to me. Am I thinking about this wrong?

The BCD996T is several models behind the current design. Technology has improved greatly since then. With all due respect, that's like complaining that you can't load Windows 8 on your Compaq Presario from 1996.

Awesome. Lindsay has one of these units at his home already. I bet Uniden floated him one early for testing.

Enjoy the fruit basket.

Cool, more Fire Tone Out slots! Up to 32.
Record all, or play back like the HP-1.
Real USB mini connector.

Largest full display on a scanner so far.

It's almost as if Paul and his team read my mind on scanner design when this was designed. Sign me up!!

It has a few things I'd like to have, but it's missing a few that I want.
Maybe some of them will be added later.

I'll get one. (At least one)

I currently have 43 of the current models and wouldn't mind having 17 more to make it an even 60.
They're my 'workhorse' scanners.
So after the holidays, I'll be cruising eBay looking for good deals.

Rich

Edit: By the way, I'd like to know if you can control multiple scanners remotely. If so, maybe I'll get two. ;-) Or more.
