  Bearcat bcd396t

The Bearcat BCD396T with TrunkTracker IV™ technology, offers APCO 25 digital capability, allowing users to monitor the activities and signals of city and government service departments, utilizing advanced scanner technology in an all new compact, handheld design. Featuring APCO 25 capability, Unidenís BCD396T is poised to improve interoperability between large cities currently using the digital systems and those smaller municipalities that still operate on analog systems. Unidenís BCD396T will not permit users to monitor encrypted signals from national and local security organizations. Preprogrammed coverage for over 400 cities is built in!

The Bearcat BCD396T also offers Close Callô RF Capture Technology, Dynamic Memory Management, Fire Tone-Out as well as 5,500 channels. Frequency coverage is:  25-512, 764-776, 794-956 (excluding cellular), 1240-1300 MHz in AM/FM/NFM/WFM modes. Search steps are:  5, 6.25, 7.5, 8.33, 10, 12.5, 15, 20, 25, 50 and 100 kHz.

The BCD396T meets the demands of both professionals, such as law enforcement officials, and scanner enthusiasts.
