Thanks, Mike. I ended up buying a ubcd436pt and ubc396xt. Planning to run the 436 in discovery mode constantly, which frequency should I search between?Hi there,
If you can find either one of these, I'd recommend you look at getting a
Uniden UBC-9000XLT or a UBCT8.
I own a few scanners and these have never given me any issues, considering they are powered up and operating 24/7.
If you're serious about good reception, the first thing I'd highly recommend is installing an outside aerial as high as is possible.
If you need a hand with selecting and planning where to put it, by all means, ask away.
For now, I think ill get the Diamond RH799 since they're 70 to1000mhz.
I kinda regret getting a digital scanner now, but I like the channel color-coded alerts on them that the old analogs lack.
