• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

New BCD536HP scanner selling quite well for $450+ every day on Ebay from very reputable sellers every day!
And the well cared for used models are currently bidding around $330-350. $400 for two NIB 536's is a straight up steal, if you end up with what you think you are buying. No question about it.

Of all the listings for new 536's on ebay none are less than $459, and Amazon is higher than that. A LNIB 536 could likely sell for $400+. A few auctions just ended today in the $385 range, and they didn't have a good presentation in their auction.

I would buy them and re-sell them and make 400 bucks and then take your 400 bucks plus the 400 bucks you made and buy the SDS-200 with the NXDN and the DMR upgrades. Done and Done

I don't thinks it's unreasonable for the guy not to want someone to open the boxes. That's his selling point to get rid of them. What if someone opened the boxes and then said, "Naa, I think I'll pass"? Now the guy is stuck with selling two open-box scanners. The next person is going to come along and be skeptical that they were never used because the boxes have been opened.

Run, do not walk, away from this "deal". I don't see an actual scanner for sale. I see a picture ripped from Amazon that the seller was too lazy to disguise. They couldn't even take the time to verify the correct brand name of the product. As far as open box issue is concerned, it's not unreasonable to open a box on a NOG item just for photos. That can be easily explained in the listing.

LOL, already all set with two SDS's. But I could use a "free" BCD536HP (after selling the other).

I'm just a cheapskate i guess Got mine open box for $250 and it looked band new like no one ever hooked it up :)
Hey I'm the same way. I picked up a 436 for $180 several years back before and SDS scanner existed, and I've purchased many scanners at absurdly good prices just by keeping an eye out at all times.

If the seller accepts PayPal and his account is confirmed you will be protected by PayPal's Buyer's Protection which is very good! It may be some scanner enthusist that bought two 536's and changed his mind and is trying to incrase cash flow for a new SDS. It wouldn't be the first time!

I do miss the old days...maybe the early 80s back, when life actually did work that way. People weren't such PC weaklings and a little street justice still had its place. At any rate, I already had every intention of wearing my pistol, open carry. I always do when I meet someone for an internet sale....lots of bad things happen in those situations to those who are unprepared and run into goblins.
