Despite what you may have seen on NCIS last night, no such Uniden product exists. (And, even if it did you'd never be able to transmit to a baby monitor by punching 911.0000 MHz into a Quick Save).

:lol:

Don't you just love the shows that depict the impossible?

CSI is one show that I just refuse to watch, because it is so 'bogus.' NCIS is another one I won't watch. The stuff they present is unbelievable at times.

You mean you can't get a DNA match and a Tox screen the afternoon of the murder?

I did one this morning before 9am. It came back to a positive match to some dude named Paul Opitz out of Texas. That dude is in reeeeal trouble when Horatio Caine gets ahold of him. :cool:

I did hear a rumor though that Uniden would offer such a product in the near future.... sometime around the 1st of April 2010, IIRC.

Ren and Stempy is more believable than either of those shows.

The last Die Hard showed a new scanner/tranceiver that Uniden is developying as well. I'm still waiting for it to come out.

My all time favorite is in the 1st Die Hard when (conveniently) the same simplex business band radio that the bad guys use to talk to each other has an added CB Band along with the LAPD transmit/receive capability.

Don't poke fun of Die Hard, it's a classic Christmas movie. So is Lethal Weapon. :cool:
After all, those movies sell scanners.

Die Hard with a Vengeance, didn't it have a BCT15 cameo? Frequency was 66.666MHz or some such number. :lol:

Die hard 4 is the best, He had what looked like a Uniden BC15 that he turned to 66.6 Mhz and then called the hacker guy with the scanner to patch him into the FBI lol, there were so many things wrong with that.

That radio has the BCPTT-1 Option!

I bet NCIS had the BCPTT-1 option added so they can talk on their scanner. Some guy down south added the BCPTT-1 option to my 396XT - werking great yah!

Toxic - Season 6 Episode 21 April 7, 2009

Just another reason not to watch network tv, its all garbage and fake with not a shred of reality anywhere to be seen. Even the reality shows are fake.

That includes the news shows. Actually the reality shows are probably more accurate.
