|Uniden have recently updated their USC230 scanner to the Uniden USC230-e, which has been designed with the European market in mind. This scanner no longer has such a strong focus on monitoring racing frequencies; a pass-time which is much more popular in the US. As a result the large headphones have been dropped. Instead Uniden now include a complimentary copy of Butel’s ARC230E PC control software, in addition to a PC connection cable.
The Uniden USC230-e retains a host of impressive features including the ever popular Close-Call, CTCSS and DCS tones and 8.33kHz step sizes for airband compliance. The full frequency coverage of this scanner is outlined below:
The USC230-e has up to 2500 dynamically allocated channels. This ensures you have plenty of room to store information about all the radio systems you want to monitor. The memories can be organised in whatever way you like by using Uniden’s exclusive dynamic memory management system.
At other public events you may not be aware of the frequency of the nearby transmissions. However, Uniden’s exclusive Close Call technology (also a feature of the UBC72XLT and UBC92XLT) ensures you can lock on to these transmissions …no programming required.
Other features of this scanner are mentioned below:
The USC230-e provides flexiblity in choice of batteries: Alkaline for long life, rechargeable for economy (batteries can be charged whilst in the scanner).
