If you're not already an airwave-surfing radio junky, try Uniden's fun, feature packed and user friendly BC355N 800 MHz Base / Mobile Scanner just once, and you'll be hooked - on scanning! Ideal for beginners and veteran scanner geeks alike, the BC355N monitors 300 channels and boasts an impossibly fast 100 channels per second scanning speed! Its impressive frequency coverage includes the most interesting "action" bands on which you can listen in on area law enforcement, EMS/ambulance, fire, amateur radio, public utilities, weather and more. The BC355N goes to great lengths to ensure your scanning experience is straightforward, engaging and as noise-free as possible. Search lockouts let you withhold frequencies that have continuous or uninteresting communications, while the preprogrammed service search feature makes finding interesting, active frequencies easier with each use. Temporary lockout lets you temporarily withhold noisy channels from your scan, and Uniden's own innovative "Close Call" RF capture technology instantly tunes your scanner to signals from nearby transmitters, resulting in increased local chatter. The BC355N is excellent for home or on-the-go and includes three power options: an AC adapter, DC power cable and automotive power outlet plug. If you're not scanning, you're missing out. Stay on top of local "happenings" with Uniden's BC355N 800 MHz Base / Mobile Scanner!
