Home Patrol

PAul, Radioshack
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Just purchased the home patrol and immediately found flaws in the scanner. You can program a frequency manually but you can not add that to you list. The frequencies in the data base they have listed is no where near what I have in my area and I live in a small town in Ohio. they have 2 and there are about 15 in my area.. They don't have local business freqs you can listen to just a general range.
  • Pros: Loud Sound
  • Cons: Antenna Is Bad, Limited Data Base

Don't recommend

Skip, Radioshack
23 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Previously picked up Norfolk Va police, but have been unable to for the last 3 months. Have NEVER picked up tax from Virginia Beach Va despite running updates every other day. The premise of putting in the zip code is a farce. I can get Chesapeake Va and Portsmouth Va loud and clear using 234XX or 235XX. Very unhappy with my purchase. I now have to use the Police Scanner App on my iPad. Wasted my money. Virtually Impossible to contact Uniden by phone or email.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use
