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.)

TrunkTracker V supports the following:
APCO Project 25 Phase I and Phase II, X2-TDMA, Motorola, EDACS, and LTR Trunked Radio Systems

Pre-Programmed Database
4 Gigabyte microSD card holds the entire USA and Canada database of radio systems, plus leaves room for hundreds of hours of audio recording.

Uniden Bearcat BCD436HP Scanner February 3, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oviedo, FL United States  
I love the radio and it does everything I need it to do. It has unlimited capabilities and the accessories are also great. Probably the only shortcoming I've found is that you can't use the monitoring while it is being charged, but this issue was easily overcome by a spare set of rechargeable batteries from ScannerMaster. Excellent item and job from ScannerMaster

Its a big boy toy, So advanced from the very old s January 30, 2015
Reviewer: John Lalonde from Lancaster, ON Canada  
Your company was recommended by a friend. Great service and shipping, nice easy web site to purchase from.
Product is very nice in style and weight, Its a curve ball from the very old ones, I'm somewhat getting use to using it. It was complicated at first for a newbie, getting better as I've been watching more video's. Its true after Unboxing it i had it up and running in no time and very active, actually to active in my area, its a big boys toy but I'm getting use to it. Lots of user settings for every need. Having a computer makes it a lot easier to learn. Not a problem with the unit .. only with the user :)

Great Product and Great Service January 16, 2015
Reviewer: Herb from Hamilton, NJ United States  
I purchased this scanner after my County went to a trunked digital system.  I found programing to be easy with the free Sentinal software that I downloaded from ScannerMaster.  The software has everything you need to find your local data, edit the data and upload it to the scanner.  If you can use spreadsheet software you can program your scanner, tweek it and be up and running a couple hours.  I find the audio to be good and reception is also good both with portable antenna and external antenna.  The staff at ScannerMaster were awesome and provided me with some basic instructions on how to program the unit when I purchased it.  They we very helpful, polite and didn't try to sell me anything other than what I need for my situation.  I had original ordered online but made a mistake so I had to call for customer service and I am so glad I did.  They are top notch.  And they shipped it to me next day at no charge.  In summary, great product and great service!

BCD436HP January 7, 2015
Reviewer: Mark Lewis from Litchfield, IL United States  
I read the reviews on this scanner and was concerned that it may be to difficult to figure out.   Not as bad as I had thought.  The traditional mind set of scanners in the past has to change a little.   There are still features I have not used as of yet. Positives, Good sound for a hand held, P25 system works good, voice recording and replay, usb charging, light weight, software set from PC.  The negatives, radio on and plugged in does not charge the battery, only time charges you need to shut it off, Quick key scans can be a little tricky to figure out, Manual can be thrown away.   Go to YouTube and check some of the tutorials people have made before and after you buy, this was very helpful.  Overall very satisfied!
