I just recently picked up a used bc296d and no pc adaptor came with the radio, does anyone know where I can purchase one? Thanks

I wouldnt think all those stores have a 250D/296D serial cable (the end on the scanner side is the different side)

If it was a base unit 785D 796D a standard 9pin would work but the handhelds are tricky to find


try unidendirect
Call 1-800-297-1023 for Uniden Direct Special Orders

it looks to be discontinued from everywhere else

its a pretty hard to find cable. part # RC250D (least from usascan)



Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, Staples, Office Depot, eBay.... assuming that your PC has a 9 pin serial com port on it.

I might have one, but I don't recall if I already sold it or not. PM me with a reminder and I'll look to see if I still have it.

Would the USB-1 cable that Uniden sells work for this application? If not maybe there is a cable listed on ebay.
No, the problem is that the radio connector end of the cable is different between the 250/296 and the newer DMA portables. It seems that Uniden has discontinued the older cable.
