That's overstating the case a bit.

There are other manufacturers besides Uniden and Whistler, and some of their scanners support alpha tagging also. Some can also be computer programmed with software that can download from the database.

I see a difference between making the data maximally usable (nobody's descriptions can exceed 35 characters) and catering to a specific manufacturer.
