Does anyone know if this Trunk Tracking radio is or will be modifable for
Cellular?  Thanks.

According to the FCC docs that were posted on the BC-780 listserv, no it's
not modifiable for cellular.  Something about the circuit being fused in some
sort of heat-applied material which would be diffcult, if not impossible.

It won't.  Uniden has had to submit to the FCC plenty of documentation -
photos, descriptions and independent test results - to show that the 780 (as
with ALL new scanners) cannot be easily modified to receive cellular
frequencies.

Among other things is the basic certification to that effect, which you can
see, in .pdf format, thru a link at
http://www.snowcrest.net/marnells/92452pdf.htm

Doubtful .... very doubtful ...All new scanners are made so that they can't
be modified for cell ...

Last I heard the date has been pushed back to Oct/Nov, which means we'll be
lucky to see it by Christmas.

I will no doubt get the 780 just for trunking, but the new AR8600 base/mobil
is the one to get for full continuous coverage and a huge alpha display,
check it out... http://www.rebel-radio.net/scanners.html

It WON'T be, it's AGAINST the law!  This applies to each and every scanner
made since ECPA-no exceptions.

Imagine that!  At Dayton, it was slated to hit the street by late July....

Now we're talking 2001 and beyond...
