A wonderful and easy-to-program scanner


Even though everyone gripes about the complexity of programming trunked systems, this scanner is one the easiest to program both conventional and trunked systems. Once you learn the scannner's procedures for entering data, then this becomes a very...

Although I did not purchase my Uniden BC246T from Radio Shack, this is the best scanner I have owned. VERY reliable and great battery life. As long as you do NOT need digital, this is BY FAR the best way to go. Has 2 main features that I cannot live...

Piece of JUNK!


I should have saved my money and not purchased this scanner. I have not been able to use triple trunking. Tech support is NO help, they don't know anything more about this scanner than I do. They can't even tell me how to do what should be the simplest...


Can't use trunking, Difficult To Configure, Directions unclear, Uniden knows nothing

Its user friendly if you have software


I will say that this was a well thought out scanner for those that enjoy a manual in their pocket. The Close call feature is nice. Without the manual it maybe the only way you can program it. The Close call feature works very well. This scanner is good...

Difficult Controls, Must carry manual to prog

Durable, Good Value, High Quality, Programming a new system
