Extended Warranty After Uniden's First Year Coverage
The scanners we carry do come with a 1-year limited parts and labor warranty. As with most electronics, it does not cover accidental damage or liquid damage—just factory defects. After the manufacturer’s warranty expires you would have to pay out-of-pocket for any repairs or replacements should your unit malfunction. With the Bearcat Warehouse Extended Warranty, you'll have peace of mind that your scanner is still covered for an additional year.

Great Scanner

I just received my BCD996P2 and it is a great scanner. I didn't think it was all that difficult to program. I got it done in about 2 hours. Love it.

GREAT scanner

I bought this scanner earlier this year and use as a base station for MILAIR, P25, and conventional PD/FD/Marine. Built like a tank and beautiful audio. P25 simulcast isn't the best and it depends on your states systems. I took this radio mobile and with a dedicated 800 mhz mag mount antenna, reception was BETTER than home! NO drop outs, no fluttering, occasional minor simulcast distortion, but all in all it was a very pleasurable listening experience. So yesterday I ordered ANOTHER BCD996P2 but they wont be in till middle of September so I gotta wait.

Well made, and does what they say it will.

It does what they say it does, and it does it very well. The price was okay, the value I think is quite a bit, looks and acts to be made very well, I guess you could lump that into the quality category as well. Ease of use, not really, it takes some figuring out, but once you read the manual and do the functions, the radio does it's part. The reception is 98% of the best radio I have heard, and I think that is very good.
Worth the money, be patient and read the manual, time well spent.

Phase 2 Scanner

I purchased this scanner because my area recently switched over to phase 2. (It was a little tricky to program so if you don't know how get programming done before purchase). I've got to say it does everything I need it to and it even picks up the old analog frequencies along with the new digital phase 1&2.

    Approximately what is the cost for programming a county police and fire software

    We charge $70 for the first County, $35 per additional County you add


    How do we tell you what county we want programmed?

    I have a channel called Close Call that comes in playing a radio station. I need to block it. Can you help me?

    Will the BCD995P2 pick up Ohio Marcs, and/or APCO P25 frequency? All cities in my area have switched to digital so I'm looking for a new Uniden to pick up the signals. Thanks.
