Hi all

Anyone seen any references to this handheld scanner? I have see a couple, including this hidden link to its manual and a relese date of mid December, and was keen to see if anyone had any more info

Only official thing, if you can call it that, i have seen is posts about it on the uniden Australia facebook page.

Seems to be a local version of the BCD936, which i think has been about a while, and has some positive reviews. Anyone gone to the trouble of importing the OS version? and how have you found it - and is there much going on the digital radio thats not encrypted?

Uniden Australia will be officially releasing this scanner on the 30th November. It is a 'local' version of the BCD396XT, given the price of the Australian version, $499, the importation of the American version would likely cost you more. And yes importing the US version is relatively easy, but there can be a problem finding a supplier willing to ship to Australia.

The BCD396XT was released in the US about 2 years ago. Depending on the state in which you reside there can considerable digital non encrypted traffic to monitor. Not everyhting is digital, not everything is encrypted, it just takes a bit of imagination to find interesting radio traffic.

Uniden can only set the RRP. Individual retailers determine their profit margins, therefore some will discount others will not. Usually, but not always, on-line stores have less overheads than a shop front retailer, thus they can afford to discount slightly more than the later. That is the case with just about every consumerable.

They seem to have gone through most of their stock already.

Apparently only 180 units this year and another batch some time in January.
