Is the anything in particular that needs to be done  in changing the SD card in a 536HP?  I think I have one that’s having trouble and am going to change it out, but didn’t know if the new one needed any special programming? Or just updating it with Sentinel after installing it?

Thanks,

Re: SD Change

Just use the CLEAR USER DATA in Sentinel first. Then write your profile.

Here is a 5-minute video setting up a new card. The new one in the video is 128GB, but the procedure is the same. You can skip the formatting part if your card is FAT and start at about the 1:45 mark. The last part shows card installation in an SDS100 and initial operation. You can skip those, too.

<<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfBHe-4Bfvs>>

The video does not show writing your Favorites, but you
should do that after the CLEAR USER DATA procedure.

It will be faster if you use a card reader rather than the scanner.

Re: Rechargeable Batteries — Compared And Explained In Detail

Jim Walls
 

It would be nice if the linked article actually covered what the title states. There is a discussion about NiMH batteries and a little specifics on AA size, but nothing else. There is supposed to be a table that shows more, but that does not show up (tried three different browsers). No links to other pages that have the rest of the battery types.
What there is however is a ton of advertisements.

I would not use NIZn based on that. And only 1500 mAH capacity?
FAR better off using NiMH which will last twice as long.

The cable is available (sometimes) at Uniden.com and/or scannermaster.com.

You can find free scanner programming software by researching the BC259D radio at RadioReference

The BCD996P2 and BCT15X dimensions are identical.
(as are the BCT15, BCD996T, BCD996XT and I believe even the BCD536HP)

They are all DIN size.

Since you seem to be in need of a translation:

"Hi! I've been reading some comments regarding Uniden scanners here. Where I live is very remote. I only pick up FB, rail and an odd plane. As for the 800 band, nothing here that I know of. I would like to know what I can pick up. I am a member of RadioReference, also. I have a Uniden 396XT, BCD325P2, and BCD996XT. All work, but I would love to be able to pick up local radio. I live in a small country town in Loddon Malle in Victoria, Australia. Cheers, Cornelius."

Hope that helps.
