Just for you here is a demo of the Site Hold and Site Selection process:Marshall
From the looks of your video, unlike the 536, the 436 will show which site is being used during a transmission. I take it is due to the larger screen size. In your video you were on the Primary Site, but if it was a multisite system I'm figuring the same thing would be displayed.
That radio ID alert video is sweet! Thanks for posting that.I had someone PM me asking for a video showing the Alert LED in action so here it is:
Uniden BCD436HP Alert feature. - YouTube
In this video the Alert LED is NOT tied to the talkgroup but to my Radio ID.
That's right: In the BCD436HP/BCD536HP Alerts can be tied to both TGIDs and RIDs.
More videos later.
I didn't listen to the video at too high a volume as I was at work, but I think you might have heard Marshall keying up his own radio to make the scanner receive..The alert sounds just like the key up sound you get just a snippet of on the local Motorola system where I live.
The HP-1 scanner came with 2GB Micro SD cards so it will work just fine in the new scanners however, it should be a Class 4 or higher for best results and if you plan on doing A LOT of recording you might want a bigger card. However, I have never exceeded my 2GB SD card yet so for most people a 2GB card should work well.I have a different question about the Micro SD card. How small can the Micro SD card be? The reason that I ask is that I have several 2GB Sandisk Micro SD cards which potentially be used in one of these BCD436HP scanners if a card that small would work. It may be several months or longer before I can afford to get a new scanner and I would like to know what else to budget for.
Dan, that was asked previously, and yes it will work on either of the new units. I have one that I use for my HP-1, so I'll be able to use it on the 436 when it arrives.Not sure if this has been asked and answered, but will this item work on the new 436 / 536 units?

I believe it was said that the 536 has no CC Out, so I'd think that the 436 would be the same. This precludes using it for Unitrunker.will this 1 have support (port) for 3dr party programs such as unitrunker, Pro96.com etc??
