The most powerful handheld scanner just got better with the newest version of the HomePatrol series scanners by Uniden. The HomePatrol-2 scanners are EXTREMELY easy to use, just turn the unit on, select your country (US or Canada), then enter your Zipcode or Postal Code. That's it! You're up and running with the most common features pre-selected for you (police, fire departments, etc) and the scanner is completely pre-programmed to receive analog, digital signals, trunked, etc.
SUPER EASY SCANNING
For years, the biggest complaint with police scanners has been the complexity in setting everything up. You would need to know the frequencies for the specific radio services you wanted to hear, and getting those frequencies wasn't always easy. In fact, the "Betty Bearcat" publication existed so that you could keep on top of the ever changing frequencies for your local police, and fire departments (among other radio services). It was, to say the least, not an easy task. The HomePatrol changes the game entirely. Just tell the HomePatrol your zipcode and based on that information, everything else is pre-set for you. It just cannot get simpler than that!
EASY TO USE
The HomePatrol-2 uses rechargeable "AA" batteries and comes with a home docking mount for when you're at home. This means that you can use the HomePatrol anywhere and everywhere. The HomePatrol has a large, full color, touch screen display and can be held in your hand. Want to walk around and listen to Police or Fire departments around you. No problem, the HomePatrol-2 is made for that. Perfect for listening at home, walking around, or on the go, this scanner does everything for everyone.
Is setting up scanners and listening to nearby police and fire departments your hobby? No?! Well that's okay! You don't need to know what "trunked" radio signal is, nor do you need to know what "APAC Phase II" is. The HomePatrol-2 picks up everything and knows what these things so you don't have to.
SCAN EVERYTHING ANYWHERE
As mentioned above, the HomePatrol-2 comes with a rechargeable battery pack and USB cable that can be used to recharge the batteries. But lets say you wanted to take the HomePatrol on a trip with you in your car, or truck. No problem, the HomePatrol-2 has an optional GPS antenna kit that will automatically program the scanner as you drive! Remember that the only thing you needed to do was enter your zip or postal code? You can skip even this step with the optional GPS antenna kit. Just plug it in and now the scanner knows where you are and programs itself based on your GPS coordinates. Don't forget to get the suction mount kit to make mounting your scanner a snap!
