"I suspect you'll need to evaluate the performance on your own, but I doubt you'll be disappointed."
Couldn't agree more, get off the fence, this radio will do everything you want and probably more, depending on your local market and interests. Let me say for the record, I have not been a big fan of some of Uniden's recent releases, Home Patrol specifically, but have been mostly satisfied with my new 536. Yes there are some minor audio issues, that will be corrected in time. Is the radio functional out the box? Yes it is. Is it a little slow scanning through a ridiculously bloated database? Yes it is, but learn how to program it using the provided software and I think you'll be very pleased with the results. The radio is definitely capable of Phase II TDMA decoding, but not every listener will have the same level of satisfaction with that aspect of the radio, but it will do it just fine so don't let that deter you in getting off the fence. Not a big Uniden fan, but can't say I'm dissatisfied with this purchase. I want it for the Phase II decoding and it's doing that just fine. At this point, overall, I'd give it an eight rating on a scale of 10.
