I can't believe how this scanner picks up every thing going on, I leave it on all the time and am kept up with all emergencies, I've wanted a scanner for a long time, I had gotten one several years ago but it was nothing like this one, I really love it!

Review 2 for Uniden BC370CRS 300-Channel All-Hazard CRS Clock Radio Scanner

Nice Conventional Analog Scanner

If you live in an area where conventional analog radio frequencies are still being used, then this is the scanner you need. This scanner does NOT do any trunk tracking, nor is it compatible with the new digital systems. It is strictly a coventional analog receiver. If you're new to scanning and are not sure what your area uses, then I might suggest visiting www.radioreference.com and do some research for your county, or you could just visit your local fire dept and get the scoop.
I really like how easy it is to program the BC370CRS, I had no trouble at all. The manual is extremely easy to follow too. The scanner has preset freq's you can choose from, as well as a search range feature. Searching for extra unknown signals is lots of fun.
I also like the All Hazard Weather Alert feature which uses the Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E) system. I've tested it and it really works!
I also noticed it is hearing impaired friendly. There is a terminal in the back of the unit where you can hook up an external sounder or strobe light. The radio will activate that extra device when a severe weather warning is issued. You can also hook an extra powered speaker to the unit. These features are great for those who are hard of hearing.
As listed, it is also an alarm clock, but I don't use that feature. It does sync itself to the Atomic Clock in Colorado, which is cool.
The BC370CRS also has a battery backup feature. Not only is it for the clock, but it powers the whole radio in the event of a power failure. It really is an All Hazard Scanner with great features.
The scanner picks up great with just the factory antenna (~25 mile radius at least). But, you can also hook up an external antenna to the unit using a BNC connector. I'm picking up clear signals from 8 to 10 surrounding counties right now using an outside antenna. Depending on your antenna configuration and line-of-sight you can quadruple your reception radius easily with an external antenna. Longer distances are possible.
One more feature on this scanner I use frequently is the memory bank lockout feature. I have my counties programmed per memory bank (30 channels per bank, it has 10 banks). That way when I only want to hear my county and maybe some statewide govt. and aircraft freq's, I can just lockout the other banks I don't want to hear for a while. That's a neat feature. I really like that.
By the way, this scanner does have a priority channel override where it checks your priority channels every 2 seconds. It's a cool idea and this scanner can be programmed for 10 priority channels (1 per bank), but I don't use that feature. It already scans 70 channels per second and I only scan about 60 favorite channels at once. I'm good to go with that. I've got about 150 channels in it, but I only listen to all of them when I'm super bored... LOL.
Overall, this is a very nice scanner. I highly recommend the BC370CRS. It's an affordable base scanner you can have lots of fun with.
