Except for the overpriced battery pack totally unnecessary! It would have been a "AA" battery pack.

This was the handheld scanner my late husband and I carried in the late 80's and most of the 90's. It was paired with BC-760 mobile scanners in each vehicle. We had a PRO-2006 for a base station after about 1992 when it came out. We had an older Bearcat of some sort prior to the 2006. Hubby modified the 760's for faster scanning and CTCSS use. Things were pretty simple then, but programming that BC-200 as we traveled took oodles of time. Hubby would write the programs on sheets of paper and sometimes I would punch the buttons as he drove. I miss him so!!

I still have my BC200, purchased new around 1991. I replaced the battery pack about 15 yrs ago, but it stays on the power cord in my home office full time since. It does duty for the BNSF road channel these days. Hard to believe it's nearly 30 yrs old.

I picked up a BC200XLT for $25 at the HRO consignment counter in Salem, NH about a year or so back. Spent money for a new battery back and a charger. Have less than $100 invested in it and it serves me well despite it's age.

looking back at the uniden bc200xlt was one of the best scanners uniden made and is still going
It had real short battery life and horrible sensitivity too. I owned that one too plus the BC-100XLT. The carrying case was horrible.
