Best Uses

  • RAILROAD

Comments about Uniden® BC125AT 500-Channel Compact Handheld Scanner:

I use this thing when I go railfanning all the time now. Depending on where I am, this thing picks up trains from where I am from about 3-4 signals out from my location (which isn't too bad). Sound quality is as good as it gets, the only downer was that it took a while to learn how to program frequencies into the scanner (the customer service people were very rude about it).

A definite buy though!

Comments about Uniden® BC125AT 500-Channel Compact Handheld Scanner:

Had a trunking scanner from RS previously. I got this and didn't open the manual. Mistake!
Read the manual. The key is to start with the service scanning which offers Police, CB, Ham, and many other bands pre-programmed for listening.
After this then continue to programming your own freqs. and tags. A great unit and well worth the investment to learn how to setup and use.

Great Analog Scanner

Pros

  • Clear Signal
  • Easy To Use
  • Good Audio

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about Uniden® BC125AT 500-Channel Compact Handheld Scanner:

      One of the best analog scanners on the market. Great amount of memories divided into 10 banks. I have the banks set up by towns. Weather scan, Close Call, frequency scan by service. Great reception using just the rubber duckie. But, I recommend the RadioShack telescoping antenna for best reception! Be sure to extend the antenna all the way, then push in the metal piece right above the loading coil for best reception in the police/EMS band.

        Comments about Uniden® BC125AT 500-Channel Compact Handheld Scanner:

        Do NOT purchase this product for police scanning. Doesn't work at all for any emergency frequencies. Shouldn't be listed as a police scanner. Eneded up with an extremely dis appointed birthday girl who wanted a police scanner. Thought it would be an entry level piece, but not worth the powder to blow it up.

          This scanner is a great little airband scanner. Very simple to program and use. Highly recommend for conventional scanning only (will NOT do trunk scanning). I use it as my airband only scanning and it works great in both civ air and military air scanning.

                great product, Alpha tagging is one of the greatest advantage over other portable scanners.
                also the computer aided programing creates a super easy programing process.

                The scanner, right out of the box..you can program the first channel by hand, then you need the manual handy to do the rest. BUTEL software you can purchase online which will make it much easier to store your favorites. Also..download the driver from Uniden so you can use the software. Otherwise I love the design and the sound quality and capture!
