Not really. Older units generate UHF noise from the battery compartment because of a missing capacitor. The noise interferes with UHF reception, especially when using the factory antenna. If you use an aftermarket BNC antenna, the effect of the interference is reduced because the adapter moves the antenna away from the noise source. Installing the capacitor eliminates the noise. There is a huge thread about this in the tech support forum. Uniden fixed the problem about 2 years ago, all newer units have the capacitor installed.
Gone camping.
