This is the first chance I’ve had to post this since it appeared on the US FCC Site due to time constraints with work. All I will say is thank god the Spring Racing Carnival is over for the year!
Let’s talk Scanners for a minute and follow on from a previous blog article we posted on September 24th, 2013 entitled, “Scanner production & possible new release news”.
Some may have noted the previous blog piece by us on where we make mention of some possible new Uniden products that there were whispers of and subsequently ‘teaser’ posts and a video by Paul Opitz of Uniden on internet forums, amongst other clues such as those slowly being found on the United States FCC website.
Some may also be aware that Uniden are set to make some sort of announcement on November 16th, 2013. So only days away!
Last week on the United States FCC website the following links appeared which show a handheld version scanner with the designation of BCD436HP. The links also provide a rear view of a unit showing where the FCC label is to be placed. It needs to be remembered though that the unit shown may differ from the finished product, it does however seem a little slimmer and longer than the 396T/XT models
Couple the above information with that which was previously found on the FCC website we’ve now identified two models. Those being the handheld BCD436HP and the base BCD536HP variant.
We also need to remember that even though ‘announcements’ are soon expected on these new products it will not mean they’re available for immediate purchase.
It is still unknown how or what impact these possible units will have on the local Australian and New Zealand markets.
Guess we’ll know more midday November 16th, 2013 (US Central Time Zone).
Until then, happy scanning & speculating!
