I just picked up a used Uniden Bearcat BC 246t off of ebay today and just wanted to hear other people's experiences with their Bearcat.

I wasn't really in the market for a scanner
(was really looking for walkie talkies for the upcoming ski season), but thought it might be a good thing to have in conjunction with my V1 since we'll be doing loads of road trips into the mountains.

The BC 246t has the following features:

* 1600 Channels Typical / 2500 Maximum
* Dynamically Allocated Channel Memory - Makes It Easier to Program and Use Your Scanner Without Wasting Channels.
* TrunkTracker III Technology - So you can keep up with the action on Motorola, EDACS and LTR systems.
* Close Call™ RF Capture Technology - Instantly tunes to signals from nearby transmitters
* Alpha Tagging** - Systems, Channel Groups, Channels, Search Ranges, and SAME Groups.
* S.A.M.E. Weather Alert - Specific Area Message Encoding - During a NOAA Weather or Emergency Alert, a code for your specific location will alert you to severe conditions in your immediate area.
* 10 Custom Search Ranges - Helps you find unlisted frequencies in use in your area
* 10 Preprogrammed Service Searches - Public Safety, Railroad (by channel), Air, Marine (by channel), CB (by channel), GMRS/FRS (by channel), News Media, Ham Radio and Special
* Automatic Repeater Reverse - Automatically Tunes to the Repeater Output Frequency When It Finds a Transmission on a Common Input Frequency.
* DCS/CTCSS Rapid Decode - Instantly Detects and Displays the Subaudible Tone So You Can Quickly Determine the System Settings.
* Pager Skip - Skips Transmissions on Common Pager Frequencies During Search and Close Call Operation.
* Channel Alert - Alerts You When Channels You Specify Become Active.
* Backlit Display** - Lets You Adjust the Backlight So It Turns on When Squelch Opens, When You Press Any Key, or Manually.
* PC Control - Includes a PC Cable So You Can Transfer Information into Your Scanner Using Your Computer
(Demo Software Available by Download Here.)
* Frequency Coverage*** - 25-54, 108-174, 216-225, 400-512, 806-956, 1240-1300 MHz (Excluding Cellular)
* Public Safety Scanner

So post up your Model, what kind of features it has and if it really works or not!

If anyone else has a BC 246t let me know your pros & cons and how to really use it! I have no clue how to use one!
