I understand the state is upgrading the tower sites up in NE Oklahoma . Would the bcd996p2 do the job of receiving the signals from the Miami tower ? . I don't want to buy the unit if it's not going to work .
I personally use the BCD436HP and BCD536HP which covers almost everything pretty much that most people use today.
I would recommend the SDS100 and or 200 depending on if you want to be mobile or not. Yes these are more expensive but the decoding of TDMA and simulcast systems have improved a lot. I have not personally used those two but I have a few friends who do and so far they said its worth every penny...unless you want to start talking encryption LMAO
EDIT: There are also much cheaper ways by using Software Defined Radio on a computer if your listen mostly at home.
The BCD325P2 comes equipped with Uniden exclusive features like Advanced Dynamic Memory System, Close Call RF Capture Technology, and GPS compatibility. It also includes support for the latest APCO Project 25 Phase II systems.
A current-tech P25 site will step back from TDMA to non-TDMA on a talkgroup if any of the "subscriber units" affiliated to it are incapable of the current P25 standard (i.e. TDMA). I don't believe they can be configured to drop further back to analog since an analog radio wouldn't work on a P25 system of any vintage (don't be confused by Motorola Type II systems that have a few TGs with P25 audio ... like most of the legacy OKWIN sites!).
So if there is an old radio on a talkgroup, your non-TDMA scanner will hear it fine.
Just buy a P2 and you'll be fine (and, as a bonus, can buy the capability of DMR and NXDN as well).
I might also add it's possible that some of the agencies you monitored before could possibly add some encryption on their car to car and tactical channels. Several in the Tulsa area did that when they went P25. Just hope if they do they don't do the main dispatch channels.
