• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Well actually Radio Shack had not sold Uniden exclusively since the BC796D and BC296D were first available. As soon as the PRO-2096 was available they dropped all Uniden’s except the OEM versions.

This is an interesting change to be sure. It will be interesting to see if the BCD996T will be available (for about $1000? :) )

Does this mean no GRE until the holidays?

Just for your info, those scanners are online only. You cannot order them in the stores (well you can if you use the stores internet and order it off of radioshack.com).

Any catalog number that beings with 550 is online only, and will never be seen in the stores.

They must have just added it to the site, I just looked at that page a few days ago and didn't notice it. :)

Same here....there was no Uniden option when I looked last time.

They are definately ripping people off. I guess if they buy it there, they ripped theirself off by not doing the researh.

:roll:


The bad thing is, some poor sap will buy the BC246T for nearly $400 and then come here later trying to sell it for $350
ALSO notice its
"Web only"
It a lot harder to return via shipping..
SO yeah their scamming:twisted:

Correct, the BCD796/296D were web only also.

I don't think they going to sell to many them with that web price. Almost all the R/S brands are on the bye bye price ending with .97. With uniden showing up as new radios, I wonder what r/s plan for the furture with scanners.

I thank this is either a prank or Canadian prices lol!
That's about what they would have charged up here if they were still around here and selling scanners. They were trying to sell the old Uniden BC245xlt's for $499.00 Canadian just before they folded up here a few years back. Unreal.

Right now all we have is The source here and the only scanner that can be bought is this one. http://www.thesourcecc.com/estore/Product.aspx?language=en-CA&catalog=Online&category=FreqScanners&product=2010320

Oh and I should add that here in Manitoba we have to pay another 14% tax on top of that price to make the total $193.79, Nuts eh? Shows you why we shop online down to the south of the border. :lol:
