Handheld VHF/UHF Scanner / receiver

The Bearcat BC-246T features third generation TrunkTracking III technology supporting Motorola, EDACS, and LTR Analog Trunking. The BC246T introduces several innovative new features, including Uniden’s exclusive Close Call™ RF Capture Technology. The BC246T uses a dynamically allocated memory system, allowing the user to program up to 2500 channels (1600 typical) into any configuration desired. While traditional scanners have been limited to only ten banks, the BC246T groups channels into systems, allowing for 200 or more systems to be programmed and scanned simultaneously. Systems can still be quickly enabled or disabled using the 0-9 keys, and each system can have up to 10 groups of channels that are also available for quick selection. Uniden’s exclusive Close Call™ RF Capture Technology zeroes in on nearby transmissions without the need for programming, even when the BC246T is in other modes, scanning, searching or holding on a frequency. For example, if someone transmits within a few hundred feet (range depends on transmit power and other radio traffic in the area), the scanner immediately detects and tunes to the transmission, ideal for use at events when the frequency being used is unknown. And frequency coverage is great. You get VHF low, VHF High, VHF Air, UHF, 800 MHz Public Service (less cellular) and even the 1.24-1.3 GHz ham band.
