The long-awaited upgrade to support scanning NXDN digital systems is now available for the SDS100, BCD436HP, and BCD536HP scanners from Uniden. This upgrade allows you to program these scanners to trunk track NXDN 4800 and NXDN 9600 systems, as well as NXDN Single-Channel Trunking and Icom’s IDAS™ trunking. Also, in conventional mode, this upgrade allows you to select the RAN and Area for NXDN transmissions.
To get the upgrade, first update your scanner to the latest firmware version (see BCD436HP Firmware Update or BCD536HP Firmware Update). Then, go to http://my.uniden.com to purchase the upgrade key. You will need your scanner’s Electronic Serial Number (ESN) and checksum to purchase the upgrade. These can be retrieved using your scanner’s menu (MENU –> Settings –> See Scanner Information –> Firmware Version).
The price for this upgrade is $50.
