Great Scanner


I have used this scanner for a while now for both fire and railroad it works great for both although I will say you might want to have a bigger intena on standby and maybe even extra batteries in your engine or vehicle. The only real issue I have had is it is a bit of a pain to put channels in the correct bank but there are many easy you tube tutorials on that


"Can you listen to fire dispatch calls?"

Yes you can, but you will need to know the radio freq. of the city FD or county FD you want to listen to. If the FD you want to listen to is operating on a 800 freq. I don't know if this will work. I use this model in my vehicle for my own personal use and have no trouble.

"what is the frequency rage for this model?"

Matt, if your asking us to give you the frequencies ranges such as 46.48 low band or 155.505 high band I can only tell you that this scanner will receive just about any frequency out there as long as it is an ANALOG and not a DIGITAL. a lot of the emergency services are switching over to a 800 digital, my suggestion to you would be to get a correct answer go to the Uniden/Bearcat web site and ask them.

"does this unit have trunking?"

This is a Alpha scanner, we think you will need a digital model scanner to even get a chance for trunking, we are not 100% sure you might want to check the Uniden Bearcat web site to double check this

"will this pick ultra high frequencies?"

Dave we can't answer that for you, why don't you go onto the Uniden/Bearcat web site and contact their customer service

"Will this work for Chicago Fire Digital frequency?"

Shawn, we think that a Alpha and Digital are different and one will not work for the other. we suggest you contact the Uniden/Bearcat web site customer service and ask them if this will work

"Can you program your own frequencies?"

Hi Bob, yes you will have to program your own frequencies, by using the keypad on the front of the scanner.

"Can the unit be used as a CB Radio"

Sorry Mike, this is a scanner, receives/monitors public safety radio channels

"will it pick up police band and weather"

Yes for the weather band, maybe on the police, depending on thefreq.

"will it receive freq in 800 range"

Sorry Don this will not get the 800 freq.
