Uniden BC796D

The Uniden Bearcat BC796D is more scanner than ever before. This model covers virtually every frequency from 25 to 512 and 806 to 1300 MHz (less cellular). It receives military frequencies not found on most other scanners. You get 1000 channels organized in 10 banks. Enjoy TrunkTracker IV technology, supporting Motorola, EDACS, LTR and EF Johnson systems. Selectable mode allows you to change the default receiving mode (AM, FM-wide or FM-narrow) to hear all the action. But clearly the most impressive BC796D feature is the built in APCO 25 digital capability. You will be able to monitor both analog and most digital radio transmissions (including 9600 baud).

Advanced features include:  Two Line Alpha LCD, Delay key (2 seconds), Channel Lockout, Data Skip (the scanner skips over non-voice channels), backlit display and 'S.A.M.E.' weather. The CTCSS/DCS feature allows the user to assign analog and digital sub-audible tone codes to a specific frequency in memory. You also get: 12 service searches, beep alert, clone feature and S.A.M.E. weather alert. The menu allows you to tailor many operations to your personal preference such as: dimmer setting, beep, Enter key lock, displayed information and APCO25 disable.

The rear panel has external jacks for:  BNC antenna, external speaker, line out and DC power input. There is also a DB-9 RS-232C port to remotely program and control the radio (required PC cable not supplied). Approximate size:  7 x 2.9 x 6.7 inches 3 lbs. (177x72x167mm 1.33 kg).

This radio comes with a mounting bracket, telescopic BNC antenna, AD-580U AC adapter, cigarette lighter power cord, Trunk Tracker Frequency Guide and Scanner Software CD [for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP].
