There appears to be 3 different Series of the Uniden BCD536HP Scanners 3800xxxx, 4800xxxx, 5800xxxx, if any one can comfirm that there is a new 5800xxxx, it would be appreciated!
in another post it was stated that all 5800 series has updated parts. I question the source of that statement, as i've never seen anything from uniden that confirms that. If that is true, and the first digit is the yom, that means they had parts for the production line almost a year ago, but only started fixing units a few months ago. Those two "facts" seem to conflict.
It would also mean that no units with sn in the 5800 range will have the rtc or backlight issues, and i'm not sure that is the case either.
I love my uniden scanners. my latest is the 996p2. i am waiting for confirmation that uniden fixes the 536 before i purchase one. i will keep an eye on this thread. the next prob would be how to be sure one is getting one of the "new" radios. i had read the serial # is not on the box and only on the radio.Yes - in the other thread. They claimed the 5800xxxx units have the fix from the factory.
