Receives both digital and analog TRUNKED SYSTEMS and CONVENTIONAL (non-trunked) transmissions. Uniden provides free Sentinel software (download) for programming your scanner, and updating the national frequency database and communication systems of choice by geography.
Extensive coverage of many public service as well as private sector bands from 25 MHz to 1300MHz (see details below). Program by entering zip code or GPS coordinates, or manually, or from a computer (PC only, but it can also be done on a Mac with a workaround). There's a lot of valuable info there.
This scanner will make and store audio of radio transmissions! There's a factory-provided 4 GB micro SD card in the unit (easily changed out for a higher capacity one, up to 32 GB). This unit has tons of great features. Uniden's Features List for the BCD436HP.ASK questions if you have'em, because. NOTE: I bought this new, but used it very little. It's an absolutely GREAT scanner for most communications systems in the covered bands, but the one thing it may have an issue with is SIMULCAST trunked systems (systems in which multiple base stations transmit the same voice or data signal on the same frequency at the same time). To properly receive those, depending on your distance from the base station sites, you may have to attenuate (weaken) the incoming signal by using an antenna with less gain. I live in an area covered by a simulcast system, but to my understanding, many or most trunked systems are not simulcast. It worked for me, but I wanted to use the stock antenna for receiving other systems too, and I didn't want to change antennas back and forth. Simulcast trunked systems are only one subset of all the trunked public safety radio systems, and it's possible to use this scanner for them, and can even be easy under some circumstances, but it's best to check. Performance on non-simulcast systems is great.
