    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.

    Great but expensive September 27, 2016
    Reviewer: Kevin Kilmer from Vincennes, IN United States  
    Scanner performed as advertised right from the box. However, my county added new talk groups which required me to return it for programming and the purchase of upgrades to the tune of more than $100. If you're a DIYer look at Radio Shack.

    My first scanner July 20, 2016
    Reviewer: Geraldine Nylund from Green Bay, WI United States  
    My first scanner.  Manuals are not much help because terminology is not defined so I had to do a lot of googling.  Managed to figure out the basics.   I bought a new antenna (radio shack 800 mhz) which helped a little but there's still some voice dropout making it hard to figure out some calls.  May be environmental problem though, not the fault of the scanner.  

    We keep it plugged in since the batteries it came with only last an hour.  

    For new scanner owners: I do recommend it, but be patient and google for more info on terms used in the manuals.  ScannerMaster will help you (I talked to them on phone for advice). Also, use marksscanners.com for more help.

    Uniden America policy... June 27, 2016
    Reviewer: Roberto Canč from Northern Italy, E.U.  
    Well, thanks to its hardware, the BCD436HP could have been the best digital handheld scanner ever, but its firmware has never been truly debugged despite many updates since its release, and that still impairs the scanner's operations in the Low VHF band, as well as in the UHF band in discovery mode, plus several other bugs and missing features.
    Furthermore, the Uniden America policy doesn't allow the non-US customers to purchase a DMR key, forcing either most of overseas customers, and all the non-US based people who were waiting for DMR-capable scanners in order to decide which model to get, to choose mandatorily a Whistler scanner.
    There are much more radio hobbysts and security personnel Worldwide rather than inside the US, I suppose.
    Maybe Uniden America hasn't thought of that...?
    I hope Uniden Japan will adopt severe measures after realizing how many customers Uniden America will lose that way...
