Important Information:
because of issues with the reliability of USB/serial port on the 436/536 scanners ARC536PRO must be used with the BCD536HP GPS/remote rear port or the BCD436HP GPS port for reliable virtual control. The use of the front/usb port is the users risk and may not work reliable. This is beyond our control. See software manual for details.

The Uniden BCD436HP, BCD536HP, SDS200 and SDS100 scanner comes with software but the included software has lots of limitations and the favorites editor to create new systems in Sentinel is very limited. ARC536 solves this problem with a true excel style editor!

With the ARC536 software you expand the functionality of your Uniden BCD436HP, BCD536HP, SDS200 and SDS100:

  • True Excel style editor with cut/copy/paste options
  • Add any frequency or talkgroup that is not in the built-in database
  • Add/Modify a control channel frequency
  • Add a trunk system that is not in the built-in database
  • Add Nascar and other race frequencies
  • Add Service Searches to your BCDx36HP (many Service Search files are included with ARC536)
  • Easily share you favorite hpd files with other BCD436/BCD536/HomePatrol users.
  • Change Alpha tags
  • Change or add subtones
  • Add Airband, CB, Marine, Railroad, FRS and GMRS frequencies
  • Change the service type of frequencies and/or talkgroups
  • Search a frequency range
  • Re-order or Rename favorite lists
  • 'Bulk' edit channel parameters
  • 'Bulk' Edit Database files so you can change delay and alert setting in the database.
  • ARC536 includes the most versatile and most feature rich editor available on the market.
  • ARC536 combines the best of 2 worlds! With ARC536 you can directly access (*) the RadioReference.com Database and import trunk and conventional systems directly into your BCDx36HP scanner.
  • Copy/paste departments between systems, building new favorite systems was never this easy!

  • System requirements:
    Windows XP/2000/Vista/7/8/10 - minimum 1024x800 video, 512 RAM.
    Uniden SDS100, SDS200, BCD536HP or BCD436HP using USB cable (supplied with scanner).
    Virtual control (ARC536PRO only) requires an additional connection to the GPS/serial port.

    2 of 5 Maybe Not Worth It January 25, 2019
    Reviewer: Terence from West Covina, CA United States  
    I'm not sure this worth the additional cost over the software you get included for free.

    5 of 5 Great software! February 27, 2017
    Reviewer: MH from Maine  
    For those using Sentinel it will take a bit to get used to, and it may seem a bit intimidating at first for those not used to programming scanners via PC. I have found that it saves a lot time. One big plus is being able to load trunked systems and groups that Sentinel doesn't. It's very easy to set up favorites, tweak different options and load onto either the 436 and/or 536  scanner. The subscription to Radio Reference updates daily... no waiting until Monday for the latest update. I am very happy with this software!
