The New Uniden BCT15X
|Uniden BCT15X Base Scanner
Uniden had a solid hit on its hands with the very
popular BCT15, and now they've just upped the ante with the release of the new
BCT15X. The "X" model is a significant upgrade over an already very successful
product. Uniden has added more memory, channel tagging (for easier channel
access), more Close Call features, updated trunking, fire tone-out search,
advanced GPS scanning and more. The BearTracker retains its unique
pre-programmed (non-digital) state-by-state scanning and alerts. You get all
this and more for the same price of the old BCT15. Another solid home run from
BCT15X today with optional Hometown Programming and discounted

|The BearTracker BCT15X is an analog trunking scanner.
It's a great base and/or mobile scanner for many areas of the country. However,
there are many areas which require a more advanced and expensive digital
scanner, such as the Bearcat BCD996XT. The 996XT can do everything the BCT15
does (although it does not have the state-by-state pre-programming and alerts)
plus it can decode APCO-25 digital, the national standard for public safety
digital. To learn more about which scanner is right for your area visit our
