About our Set-up & Optimize Service

With Scanner Master's exclusive Set-up & Optimize service we see to it that your BCD436HP is fully updated and ready to use for your area, perfect for your own use and especially perfect for a gift. First we optimize the internal database by updating the frequency library, which changes daily. We will also check and install any firmware updates to the HomePatrol before the radio ships. (The firmware is the operating system for the radio which may have been updated or tweaked by the factory following its production in Asia.) Scanner Master will then build a Favorites List for the customer (based on the ship to address of your order), or for the area in which the scanner will be used if the customer specifies a different city and county (for example if the radio is given as a gift). Scanner Master will also pre-tune the radio by entering the end-users zip code. Note that this service will add approximately 7 to 14 business days for processing before the radio will be shipped.

(The benefit of this Favorites List work is that we insure that the most important data to the user is readily accessible as often times, if the database for the end user's area hasn't been completely prepared with what's known as "geo-tagging" then some or all of the local agencies will not activate for scanning. Scanner Master insures that this will not be the case.)

APCO Project 25 Phase I and Phase II, X2-TDMA, Motorola, EDACS, and LTR Trunked Radio Systems

Awesome Scanner July 19, 2014
Reviewer: Thomas Osbon from Knoxville, MD United States  
I had scanner up and running in just a few minutes. The firmware update via the built in sentinel software was a breeze to setup as well. The user manual could use some work but this does not impact how the scanner works. I would recommend this scanner to novice and advanced users.

The 436 is Great---but July 17, 2014
Reviewer: BCE from Cincinnati, OH United States  
Great radio!  Reception better than my HomePatrol 1.  Basic operation is very easy.  Put your zip code in and your good to go.  Advanced usage is another matter.  Probably one of the worst user manuals I have every seen for ANY electronic product.  Many reports suggest adding a Radio Shack 800 mghz antenna.  We have an APCO 25 trunked system on 800 mghz.  in my area.  I noticed no discernable difference in reception on the 800 mghz frequencies but did notice substantial degregation on other frequency bands.  So, I do not recommend the RS antenna.  There is plenty of fiddling that advanced users will enjoy, but it will take you a while to figure them out based on the information avilablbe on the web site and in the next to worthless manual.  If you are deciding on the HomePatrol 1 vs the 436, buy the HP 1 for its color screen to use as a table model at home or the office.  For all other purposes, including auot/truck, the 436 is the best choice.
