i installed a new uniden cb radio with a wilson 5000 antenna.
and today i put it on the weather station to get weather updates from the local coast guard and every so often it picks up the local rcmp.in and around st. john's and surrounding areas
would anyone know the reason for this.
also can a person get an adapter to convert the wilson 5000 antenna
to be used on a bcd 396t handheld scanner
thx

Everyone may have different opinions on this, you can read the GRE and Uniden forums for info

Here are my main points GRE 500/600 vs Uniden 396/996

G) GRE's are newer model (dunno whether that matters or not), include NAC (to see radio id's), are suppose to be better audio, and better digital scanning. Come with USB cable (people with laptops appreciate this)

U) Uniden Much easier to read screen, GPS ability on the 996, the 396 is much smaller then the 500.. 6000 channels at one time vs 1800 objects per v-folder

I sure others have varying opinions


also wondering which is better gre scanners or uniden

As for an adapter, you'll need one that goes from PL256 to BNC, i've been able to find them at The Source, if there is one near you try there.
