          Do not Buy if you live in Oswego, NY
          It will not pick up anything from Oswego, NY.
          We bought one and had to return for a different model.

            This is the best scanner due to the no programming feature. It picks up local broadcasts right out the box.

                Previously picked up Norfolk Va police, but have been unable to for the last 3 months. Have NEVER picked up tax from Virginia Beach Va despite running updates every other day. The premise of putting in the zip code is a farce. I can get Chesapeake Va and Portsmouth Va loud and clear using 234XX or 235XX. Very unhappy with my purchase. I now have to use the Police Scanner App on my iPad. Wasted my money. Virtually Impossible to contact Uniden by phone or email.

                              I bought this scanner the end of Nov. I have had it back to Radio Shack 4 times. to get them to help me. when we bought it , it sounded great but yet has done what we was told. I took it back Dec. 5th. not long after it was bought. we was told it would pick up our city and county, its digital gave over 450 dollars. not happy at all, took it back for the 4th time last night, they say they done this and that try again. its still not picking up city.

                              Very poor reception of signals. Many times will show carrier on screen for several minutes but have no audio. Will have no city transmissions for as long as 6 hours at a time. We all wish our community was that safe! Took it on patrol with me and it missed numerous calls that came over city radio. Sound is very poor quality, hard to understand many times. Had it back to R.S. several times and also back to Texas with no improvement. Right now to me it is a piece of junk. Will never purchase Uniden products again.
