    I had gotten interested in scanning by listening online. I noticed how much i listened to it and wished i could take it places and scan other things, i dedided to invest in my own. The Uniden BC245XLT is the best thing I have seen for a reasonable price. When it arrived I was so nervous and excited. At first it is a little confusing to figure out for someone who doesn’t know one clue on what they’re doing, but you get the hang of it. I am really good with it now about 2 weeks later. The reception is better than I expected, I wasnt really sure on what to except but the reception, 1-10(best), i’d give it a 9. Overall I give the BC245XLT a 4.9 because nothing can be perfect!! I wish they would have given it larger channel storage and that’s about all. I cant think of somethign bad about it but thats a good thing. Anyone interested, trust me, this is the product for you. However if your looking for a desktop scanner or to spend more money you can look at a better version of the BC245XLT, the BC895XLT or the ultimate Uniden: BC780XLT which is a 500ch. desktop TrunkTrack III scanner! That looks unbelievable with Alpha tags and record features!

    I have always had a curiosity about “scanners”, but never quite curious enough to buy one. I received a rather generous gift certificate for Christmas this year and decided to get something I might not ordinarily buy. I chose this particular Uniden, Bearctcat, scanner. As stated in another review, to the beginner, the “art of scanning”, can seem a little overwhelming. Rest assured, any effort exerted in learning how to use this scanner will pay off with many hours of listening enjoyment. My Bearcat II has been rock solid thus far and is for all intents and purposes a quality, user- friendly product. The manual refers to “third party software” that allegedly allows you to program your scanner using your PC. This software is quite pricey though. I would recommend spending some time learning your new scanner and determine how much you care to invest in this hobby before spending another 40.00 to 70.00 on software. Some of my friends who initially scoffed at my scanner purchase were quite shocked by the amount of information available via the airwaves. Several have now purchased one. I live in a Major City and continue to be amazed by the well-choreographed “dance” between dispatcher and L.E.O. I worked for a very tight knit S.O. for well over a decade, and as a natural consequence, I understand the terminology. A novice will want to pull many of the codes from the Internet and either learn them or have them easily available for reference. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine!?

  4. I have had the BC245XLT for almost a week now. It is a very good radio, especially since it is the only radio now available that can scan both Motorola and GE (EDACS) trunked radio systems. The instructions are a little confusing, but well worth it to have this scanning capability. 300 channels makes it easy to scan most frequencies in your area!
