    BCD436HP 'Analyze' Question

    Morning all. I'm relatively new to the forums and I've done my best to search for the answer before posting this. If I've overlooked something, please forgive me and point me in the right direction. I have also checked Mark's Scanner manual, the factory manual, and Google to no avail. On the...

    BCD436HP: Locating and configuring for DMR monitoring

    Recently I noticed some digital noise coming from my scanner which scans the local public services. All the public service departments in this small area still use basic analog radio communications with a few repeaters. My BCD436HP has the DMR upgrade and I started noticing just 2 days ago...

    BCD436HP: Priority scanning question

    I have the local PD dispatch channel (VHF conventional P25) setup as the only priority channel. I have Priority Scan (not Priority DND) turned on, and it works as I want it to - no matter what, even if the scanner has stopped on another channel, if there is traffic on the PD dispatch channel...

    BCDx36HP: Any word on the status of NXDN support?

    NXDN? I have a 536 and I am looking to get a hand held to go with it. Much as I want to get the 436, it is really beginning to look to me like Uniden has abandoned NXDN altogether. Like they really just don't care. I may have to go with the Whistler. I don't want to, but Uniden is leaving...

    P25 Programming HP2 and BCD436HP

    Hi! I will try to make this post as short as possible. Back in December I bought two Uniden scanners, a BCD436HP and a HomePatrol 2. I’ve since been trying to get them to work with a local police P25 system. With the help of the BCD436HP (and the FCC website) I was able to identify...

    BCD436HP P25 Programming

    Hi! Perhaps someone can help me. I'm new to digital trunking and just go the BCD436HP a few weeks ago and have not been able to program it. The RR and Sentinel databases are no good where I live, so I have to manually program the scanner. I found a few P25 control channels (8 so far), or...

    BCD436HP: New scanner... Dim Lcd barely readable

    I very recently got a Bcd436hp scanner. I'm barely hearing much, even on the citizens bands, but that's probably something I'm doing wrong. The screen however... Even with the contrast at the highest setting; unless I have a bright light directly on the screen, I can't read anything on...

    BCD436HP: P25 Programming

    Hi! First things first, I just started messing around with trunking, so total noob in this area. I bought a BCD436HP a few weeks ago, and I made a Custom Search, from frequencies 850Mhz to 868Mhz. I've noticed three different behaviors while searching: 1. On some frequencies, the...

    BCD436HP programming question

    I've programmed the Sentinel software with a Favorites List (to which I've assigned Favorites QK 1) that contains 6 systems in total. One of them is a P25 system to which I've assigned QK1. Four of them are Conventional to which I've assigned QKs 2, 3, 4 and 5. The last one is a Motorola System...

    Sentinel Software freq database

    So.. I've played with my new BCD436HP scanner for about, maybe, a half hour so far. I'm coming from a Radio Shack pro-34 scanner, so you'll probably see me here asking questions over the next few weeks+ :) I installed the Sentinel software and plugged in my scanner with the mini-usb cable...

    Sedgwick County and Wichita scanning questions

    I used to scan Sedgwick County and Wichita on a Radio Shack Pro-97 before they went digital. In October I purchased a BCD436HP and think I have it set up correctly but feel like I'm missing alot of traffic. I've created a favorites list to whittle down the talk groups I'm monitoring...

    Uniden BCD436HP or Whistler TRX-1?

    Uniden BCD436HP or Whistler TRX-1? I'm in Nebraska. My last scanner was the Radio Shack Pro-34. Most of the buttons on it don't work and I haven't yet desoldered the board from the antenna connection to remove it and see if I can just clean the contacts or what.. But,... Considering my...

    BCD436HP crashing, possibly related to DMR

    Lately my BCD436HP has been spontaneously rebooting, sometimes as often as every 5 minutes but usually only once an hour. It suddenly quits and goes through a boot-up cycle and starts scanning again, but it loses all the Avoids and the recording has to be restarted. If the cord is plugged in it...

    BCD436HP: Two-tone decode on an EDACS analog talkgroup

    Hi everybody, I currently live in an area that's covered by an analog and Provoice hybrid EDACS system. They have two analog dispatch talkgroups for sections of the county, and there's a two-tone decoder wired to a control station at every firehouse. It works pretty nicely for them. So, I...

    Help with new scanner choice needed

    I had (have) a Realistic Pro-37 handheld scanner. It hasn't worked for a long while. The buttons stopped working and to get it apart to clean the guts, I would have to desolder the antenna connector which I never got around to doing. Last year, for Christmas, I got a Bearcat BC346XT (I think...
