I have the bcd996p2 when listening to audio I only get part of the audio. It starts ok for about 20 seconds and pauses for 2 to 3 seconds then continues. It does through the whole conversation and on every channel. Any ideas on what would cause this. The squelch in as low as it can go without causing the channel to freeze. Thanks for any help

Yeah, I had no idea refurbs, returns, and scratch and dent Unidens were on Amazon.
Amazon warehouse is the best for this stuff - I got my x436 from them too, for almost $350 new.
If a buyer returns something, even if they never opened it, they have to put it there. Great way to find good sales. Its too bad the SDSs arent on there..yet.

Thats pretty good considering some places have increased their scanner prices through the roof. I saw same radio selling for almost $500 online from somewhere. I am tempted to buy another for if/when I get my truck. Thinking of having it custom installed in-dash. Wife & I discussing a replacement vehicle to use for kayak trips and I suggested a pickup. We've been using either my Hyundai Tucson or her Plymouth Vibe for hauling 2 kayaks. Both cars getting old. So we might look into it pretty soon. I'd like to have scanner in my vehicle. Right now I am using a small 100 channel analog Bearcat built-in dash. Works pretty good with Larsen 2m/440 ham mag mount.

Bob the 996P2 list price has always been $499.99
Most sellers have only raised the price from $339.99 to $379.99 thats only $40.00
I do not see that as through the roof when the price of gasoline went from .99 per gallon to 1.99 per gallon in 4 weeks.
