Does anyone know if Uniden is about to release a new scanner? Walcott CB says they have been discontinued...

Perhaps, but in looking around at other stores I suspect Walcott CB is the only company that is "discontinuing" the sale of this model.

I'll give you $300 for it so you can buy the new model :)

Yea that's probably it, I was just looking for a god deal on a 2nd 536 and wondered if they might be coming out with an updated model.

Their "discontinued" price of $599.95 is $100.00 more than the cost on Amazon or the Ham Station, and $70 more than ScannerMaster.

Walcott may be discontinuing sales of the 536 (their loss), but Uniden hasn't discontinued making them.

Probably the reason they are discontinued. They cannot sell any at that price.

Yeah I'm thinking this vendor is discontinuing their sales of this model. This would be the first time I ever saw Uniden discontinue producing a model without having a comparable/more featured model available for purchase. And there usually are hints a month or two before Uniden announces a product.

Two obscure websites, which I'd bet that no one on RR has bought a 536HP from are no longer selling them. And people are soiling their Depends over the news.

Scanner Master, HRO, The Ham Station, Amazon, Universal Radio, Factoryoutletstore, Bearcatwarehouse, and Walmart all have them listed and in stock.

So, relax.

Thats a CB store, Dont worry there are plenty of 536HPs out there.
No new scanners were shown at the big hamfest in Ohio.

Not to validate the concerns of some people, but I seem to remember that Uniden has not had booths at recent CES or other shows. They host a "hospitality suite", but don't have displays on the exhibit hall floor.

That said, you're right about the rest.

Why would they come out with a 536 HP DMR model hen all you would have to do it get the up grade for DMR and you would have the same model?

True, but I don't think that would necessarily be an indication either. This poster made an observation about Uniden's lack of a booth at this year's hamvention....

Uniden has never had a booth at Hamvention, so that should not be taken as a signal of anything.
