I bought the first BC2500 batch and sent it back within 4 months because it
drained the battery pack overnight.... turns out they had a "problem" with
the first batch of units and repaired mine... also had another problem with
very noisy audio that they repaired also.....
Then there was the AOR 1500 that picked up local TV chan 7 on just about
every channel (above 800mhz) that was programmed in, turned out they had the
3rd IF frequency set for approx 180mhz........ another first batch
I took a chance on the BC 245 "after" I watched the BC235 come out with no
EDDACs ....... the only complaints I had were Uniden must have the market
cornered on NiCd battery packs and their LCD can't be read unless the radio
is tilted "back".....
Needless to say I got tired of waiting for they BC250D and went with a
PRO95...... the display has adjustable contrast and the unit takes AA
batteries...... it may not track the APCO25 systems but in all other aspects
it meets the BC250D
.....and the speaker volumn and clarity is 100x superior to the BC250D......
UNIDEN wake up!!!!!!!... did I mention it only costs $150......... it's off
sale now and goes for $250.....
