Comments about Uniden® Uniden HomePatrol-1 Simple Program Scanner:

Just purchased the home patrol and immediately found flaws in the scanner. You can program a frequency manually but you can not add that to you list. The frequencies in the data base they have listed is no where near what I have in my area and I live in a small town in Ohio. they have 2 and there are about 15 in my area.. They don't have local business freqs you can listen to just a general range. For the price you are better off to get a programmable scanner even though they take time to learn how to operate they give you more flexibility in the long run

      Comments about Uniden® Uniden HomePatrol-1 Simple Program Scanner:

      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 and sound

                    from Port Huron, MI, USA

                    Comments about Uniden® Uniden HomePatrol-1 Simple Program Scanner:

                    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.
