I have a Uniden Bearcat BC80XLT. I have recently discovered that it no longer picks up all the channels that it used to, Due to the whole trunking and digital thing. So I am in the market for a new one. Not looking for the best money can buy, just something similar to my old one but a base station type and I want it to pick up all Marion Police, Sheriff, Fire, Rescue, O.S.P. and the like. Suggestions? Where to buy? Prices?

I recommend the Uniden Home Patrol 2. Shop around on the internet for the best prices. Many sales at this time of year.

If you're looking to go inexpensive you can buy a used 996T, 996XT, 996P2 or eBay or HP2 as W8RMH says. You don't have to dump $400+ into the latest and greatest Phase II capable radio.

Check out Servex Electronics. I custom program all his scanners (Uniden 325P2 portable or 996P2 desktop/mobile) for each customer. He also has a lay-away plan.
