The Bearcat BC-346XT features third generation TrunkTracking III technology supporting Motorola Systems Type I, II, II/I (hybrid), EDACS Systems FM, NFM, and SCAT plus LTR Systems. The BC346T has many innovative features including Uniden’s exclusive Close Call™ RF Capture Technology and there is EDACS ESK support. The BC346XT uses a dynamically allocated memory system, allowing the user to program up to 9000 channels. While traditional scanners have been limited to only ten banks, the BC346XT groups channels into systems, allowing for up to 500 systems to be programmed and scanned simultaneously. Systems can still be quickly enabled or disabled using the 0-9 keys, and each system can have up to 10 groups of channels that are also available for quick selection. Uniden’s exclusive Close Call™ RF Capture Technology zeroes in on nearby transmissions without the need for programming, even when the BC346XT is in other modes, scanning, searching or holding on a frequency. For example, if someone transmits within a few hundred feet (range depends on transmit power and other radio traffic in the area), the scanner immediately detects and tunes to the transmission, ideal for use at events when the frequency being used is unknown. And frequency coverage is great. You get VHF low, VHF High, VHF Air, UHF, 800 MHz Public Service (less cellular) and even the 1.24-1.3 GHz amateur radio ham band.
