Best Scanner i ever owned!

Scanner works great picking up my local police department i couldn't be happier. I finally found a scanner that performs like it should for the price. I bought 2 other radios this year had to return both first one was whistler scanner which was junk didn't receive any of my police and the other one was a Uniden but could not get it programmed. Im glad Bearcat Warehouse directed me to this one and soon enough i will be buying the BCD536HP. until then Thanks Bearcat for all your help i am a customer for life!!!!!!


Great scanner, however complicated programming

Great scanner for just about everything you could want to monitor. however, the programming and creating favorites lists is quite complicated for the person not familiar with all the terms and the way this scanner functions. Built in database is great, but selecting just what you want is not explained very well. The sentinel program does not have help files or examples as some commercial radio programs have.

I had a BCD436HP 15 months and I love it I'm thanking ordering a BCD436HP MOBILE SOON


The BCD436HP scanner is one big leap from my 20 year old scanner

The BCD436HP scanner is one big leap from my 20 year old scanners and very impressive with the radio reference data base which saves me a lot of time messing around programming the scanner.

This whole concept with the radio reference data base becomes a coordinated effort between gathered FCC data and what is really going on in the field from individuals using their scanners.

I have already contributed one correction to the data base and it was corrected by fast2okc the next day on and in the next weekly updated file accessible by the BCDx36HP Sentinel software.

What a massive undertaking and I am very impressed.

I have used the BCD436HP since May 15, 2017 and so far, I have a few mainly annoying nuisances listed below ...

o the manuals for the 436 and 536 should be separated to eliminate confusion

o major oversight in not lighting up the display when prompted with a question as do you want to start charging or connect to a computer

o the question above should not time out to some default value while you are trying to see what is on the unlit display

o there should be a setting to keep the display on as long as the squelch is open

o when reviewing recordings it would be nice to get to the last recorded entry in a recording session without going through all of the recording entries using the scroll control to get to the last one

o it would be very nice to clear all user set AVOIDS during scanning rather than going through all the systems, departments, and channels to figure it out, in other words something like the old hold down on L/O key till you hear 2 beeps to clears them all


Scanner is awasome,, user manual is horrible other then that I w

Great scanner,, book sucks you tube vids taught me everything depending on what freqs ur using it for buy a after market antena.. The 700-800 mhz one I bought improved the reception 50% but this is the first new scanner I have bought in 5 years and im very happy and impressed with how much they have improved..


BCD436HP Scanner

I just received my BCD436HP Scanner that is programed by Bearcat Scanner Warehouse for 1 county. All I had to do is turn in on and the scanner finds exactly what I am looking for. The scanner has a solid construction and work flawlessly. Great product and programing guys. I am looking forward to exploring more features that this scanner is capible of preforming.


Mobile Scanner

The Bcd436 is a very reliable scanner I get about 8 hours battery life which is pretty good for a mobile unit. This picks up all the public safety in my area the sound is crystal clear. I recommend this scanner to beginners and veteran scanner operators. 5/5 great buy



My 2nd purchase of a 436 was from bearcat warehouse they programmed it and it works fantastic, i wish i bought my original one from you guys instead of scanner master your programming was way better. i am going to send my other 436 to you guys to program the same way. bearcat is my new favorite scanner shop and plus i got my scanner in 1 dayy !!!

    Why does my handheld scanner not stay fully charged?

    If there is any sort of glitch in the power, it will reset the charging dock. Therefore, the screen will continue to state it is charging.

    Where do I find a firmware update for my scanner?

    Firmware updates for our scanners are at “” replacing with your scanner’s actual model. For example:


    I downloaded Windows 10, and now my scanner does not work.

    All of our scanners with native USB just plug and play with Windows 10. For older models (i.e. “XT” or “X” models) that have a serial connection, older USB-1 cables will not work, as Prolific changed their drivers several years ago to only work with their newer chipset that has anti-counterfeit features. At that time, we changed the chipset in our USB-1 cables. So, if you have an older USB-1 cable it won’t work with Windows 10 (or really w/8 using current drivers). Newer (last couple of years) cables will work.

    How do I turn on this scanner?

    Handheld scanners are powered on by pressing the power button which has the Universal Power symbol:  

    Which Scanners have a built-in frequency database for the USA?

    The current database models are:






    Do I need to paid for adding the counties by you or is it easy enough for me to add my counties on this unit?

    About 80% of our customers have us program the radio before shipment. The programming difficulty is really determined by how tech tech-savvy you are with a computer.
