9Re: [BCD396XT] Re: Uniden Announces BCD396XT and BC346XT Handheld Scanners
- Sep 29, 2008Well I have to give Uniden credit. They've created a lot of hype over this product upgrade however I can't help but feel it is a lot of sizzle but no flame.
The increased channel capacity (specificaly, increased talkgroups per system) and the temporary lockout features are VERY welcome, however they alone (and combined with the other features that should have been there since day one) is not compelling enough to buy a new radio.
If Uniden wanted to impress or at the very least, make an upgrade more attractive, is have a "buy back" program where you could get the new radio for say $200 with the trade in of your old 396. I'd certainly go for that, as I'm sure a lot of others would too.
But at the end of the day, these features don't make the 396 any more attractive than the GRE offerings (which are still more appealing if they didn't look so damn ugly!!).

Will any of the new features be available as a firmware upgrade to
the 396T? Obviously, some of them (such as expanded memory,
Exchange IF, etc.) cant' be...but some of them such as temporary
lockout, maybe NAC and so forth...any possibility of them on the 396T?
