First Class Product.

Very pleased with the 536. I had BC to program counties. The Scanner is First Class. The gentleman that I spoke with was very helpful. Ricky Nixon

Great for Ham and SKYWARN!

I have the 536HP for a month now, my previous scanner was the BCT-15X which I feel is similar to the 536HP in field programming. I was able to start scanning right out of the box. I opted to get unit programmed by Bearcat Warehouse for my area and it is well worth it. Having the whole USA & Canada Database is good as well. I also opted to get the DMR and Pro-Voice upgrades.

I don't have a computer yet, so I was able to add frequencies with little problem other than time consumption. Once I realized the structure of the "Favorites Lists" and the features, it was simple enough. It picks up the digital and analog very well. I like how it displays so much information on one screen. I choose to not enable the 3-line display for some information is lost.

The scanner is solid in construction and design. I am using it as a base unit with the indoor antenna and it picks up quite well. I set my priority frequencies and WX Alert with no problem.

I will evaluate further and advise. I am very pleased so far. I am amazed at all this unit can do once I understand it better now.

New to Digital Trunking

I have the unit a week now. I had the BCT-15X analog scanner and the programming by hand seems to be similar, but a lot more settings and features. I figured out how to input frequencies by hand (I do not have a PC/Laptop currently). It's time consuming and the Sentinel would be a lot easier.

The display is good as far as quantity of information. I wish that there were other color backlight options. I keep the 3-line feature off because I like having all the channel information in one screen.

The audio is excellent and the digital (APCO-25, DMR, and etc.) sounds real good. Having an AGC setting is a plus as well. I had my counties programmed by Bearcat Warehouse and it was a wise decision. Programing by Zip Code and Range invites a lot of unwanted frequencies for my local area. It is still in the database on the SD Card should I change my mind or I can copy to my Favorites.

Overall I feel this is an excellent scanner and will meet all my communications needs for some time to come. The unit is well constructed and solid for base or mobile use.

BCD536HP Review

I couldn't agree more with Henry Jenkins's review below. I've been listening in with Police scanners for 25 years and this is by far the one of the best pieces of equipment I've had the pleasure of using. Location based scanning is extremely necessary for my area its frequencies are constantly being changed, so i'm able to update my frequencies with Uniden's Sentinel Software weekly to never miss a beat.

Best scanner on the market

Well I think I found the best scanner on the market. It does it all. I listen to rail, ham, police fire you name it I get it. I even pick up the casino down the street from me. I would recommend this scanner to everyone.

    I have a digital scanner BCD536 HP with the Wi-Fi connector I’ve downloaded the Siren app how do I make it connect to where I can hear when I’m away from my house

    The BCD536HP Siren app only works on a WIFI Network it doesn't have global functionality. 

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

    The current database models are:
