I have had a lot of scanners over the years, even going back to the crystal controlled Bearcat scanners and more recently Radio Shack and Uniden scanners including the digital scanners. I finally got my BCD536HP several weeks ago and all I can say is it's unbelievable. I can use it like my Home Patrol scanner or program it like my BCD396. It gives you a lot of programming capability or can be very simple, what ever you like. The sensitivity is as good as or better than the 396 or HP-1.Have several analog scanners and one 996T, Are most of the bugs fixable so far? Is it safe to invest this kind of money on the 536 or is Uniden planning on coming out with something else this year?
