I have a thread on just that. Let us know how it works out.I ordered Sunday night and it was $499.99 + $18 shipping.
I never go to Wichita (I'm near the Kansas City area) but I'm hoping it works with the horrible simulcast issues with the Johnson County and MARRS systems.
Guess I haven't been paying that close attention....does the 436 have that much more info available at a glace when compared to the 536 due the screen aspect ratio? Or is it the same, just in a different layout?
How are you programming the scanner? Manually or via the sentinal app?How do you set priority channels on the BCD436HP? I have read the owners manual and just cant get it to work. I am new to scanning so any help will be appreciated.
You CAN listen to the radio while the usb is plugged in and there are no batteries installed. With batteries installed you CAN NOT charge the batteries while radio is plugged in and scanning. Batteries will only charge while radio is off and in charge mode.I can't get past the report that you can only use batteries with the unit & you can't use it while it's recharging the batteries... Please tell me this report is false...
That's welcome news. Wonder if one could use a USB charger plugged into the wall?You CAN listen to the radio while the usb is plugged in and there are no batteries installed. With batteries installed you CAN NOT charge the batteries while radio is plugged in and scanning. Batteries will only charge while radio is off and in charge mode.
Not a big deal. I always have fresh batteries in hand or use the radio plugged in to my computer.
Can understand your feelings I was a little bit intimidated myself but I have just received my radio today and it was a relatively very simple to setup I'm not one to go in and do programming I was happy with just entering my zip code and it works fine very clear on my p25 frequencies in my county in the beginning I was very leery with all the postings I guess I can say I'm luckyPerhaps you should buy one and use your 30 days to test it and see if you can handle it. However, I don 't know if you can ever truly escape from the programming needed to run this radio. Firmware updates and data base updates may be necessary, especially as radio systems change.
Wichita Shocker fan? Doing awesome this year, aren't they?I would go with the RS Pro 106 or the RS Pro 2097. Trust me you will be much happier. I know I am. I bought the Pro 106 and the Pro 2097 when they came out about three years or four years ago and I would never substitute the new Uniden scanner for what I already have. The RS radios pick up the new Sedgwick County System great with the right settings and the right antenna.
