It's the siren app which allows you to remotely control a bcd536hp either by having it create it's own wifi network or by having it connect to your home wifi. You can hold on channels, systems, etc., adjust the squelch and many other standard features. It comes free from uniden.

Default Oldest and newest

Seems like you could buy a decent portable scanner for close to the price of the tablet. Carrying my scanner in a belt case is lots easier than lugging around a tablet,

Oldest would have been a Midland (IIRC) AM/FM/Police Band tunable. 5 bands I believe, with VHF-Lo chopped into two and VHF-Hi in one chunk...no UHF. Which since there was nothing using it here at the time didn't matter. It died when Nixon was still president and is consequently long gone. This was followed by a BC3, which I gave to a young person interested in vintage electronics a few years back. There was a pic in another thread of my next one, a BC560xlt, the other day, and my newest is a WS-1098, which everybody also knows what it looks like, so no need for me to clutter up the thread with more pictures.

Things sure have changed.

Default Wifi vs' Handheld

The tablet lets me enjoy the scanner and antenna setup anywhere in range of my WiFi around my house. A bit different than having a handheld scanner with a duckie antenna. Lugging a tablet not a problem. I also like the display and easy use, you have a hit on a certain dept or channel just touch it it holds there. No small buttons hard to see, nice multicolor display!!

Thanks for that! I love 'em and run them every day. The r71a not involved in this thread subject, which is even longer-in-the-tooth than my r75, gets used the most.
Anyone else out there, put in your pics! Feed this thread! Amost everyone has a oldest&newest.

I probably killed this thread worse by saying that c'mon people-SPIRIT!

My newest is a Yaesu VX-6R, and my oldest? Probably the Regency scanners I have..or if its Motorola gear then the several MT series radios I have.
