Uniden's BC370CRS scanner combines a conventional channel scanner with an alarm clock radio. You can easily enter and store frequencies for police, fire/emergency, marine, air, amateur, and other radio services into 300 channels. The scanner also lets you listen to NOAA weather broadcasts for valuable information specific to your location, and all hazards alert for any other public warnings. The scanner's clock displays whenever you turn off the radio functions, and it can also be used as a standard alarm clock.

Uniden BC370CRS
A multi-featured channel scanner and alarm clock radio in one.

300-Channel Clock Radio Scanner

Channel Scanner Features

The Uniden Clock Radio Scanner is a multi-featured conventional channel scanner with all hazards alert. The scanner allows you to store and then scan up to 300 channels distributed over 10 banks. It also alerts you when NOAA or any broadcast station the scanner is tuned to issues an EAS (Emergency Alert System). Other features include a service search and weather scan, listening to TV on the radio (channels 2-13), and an alarm clock with snooze function. In addition to your favorite broadcast channels, this clock radio keeps you in tune with public safety, police and fire departments, NOAA weather reports, and more.

With channel memory, this unit scans frequencies at a rate of up to 70 channels per second to help you find the channel you're looking for. If you know exactly what you want, direct channel access let's you quickly dial in to your favorite channel. For faster scanning, you can even use a channel/frequency lockout function to skip over stored frequencies.

Alarm Clock Radio Features

This clock radio scanner has all the functions of regular radio/alarm clock. The scanner, in standby mode, displays the time. The alarm clock can sound up to 20 minutes or be shut off manually. A convenient snooze button lets you silent the alarm for an extra five minutes.

You can listen to AM/FM and TV channels 2-13 or use them as your snooze alarm in the morning. You can store up to 30 broadcast channels (10 AM and 20 FM/TV) for quick and easy access. Ten frequencies can be set as priority channels which the clock radio scans and checks every two seconds.

The Clock Radio Scanner's LCD lighted display can be enabled or disabled. A key touch-tone sounds to confirm you've made a valid key input while another tone alerts you of an invalid entry. The scanner requires AA batteries and will let you know when batteries are low and when they need to be replaced. This unit comes with the manufacturer's 1-year limited warranty.

This was on my wish list and my wife indulged me for my birthday! Thanks!

When I started working as a young teenager, the second thing I bought with my money was a Bearcat 6 channel handheld scanner. That was more than 30 years ago and times sure have changed.

Let us talk about the non scanner features first. The atomic clock works solid and had no trouble getting signal. The alarm clock also works as expected. The snooze button could stand out a little more since there are a lot of buttons of similar size and location. (I said similar and not exact!)

The FM and TV reception work fine and I can pick up stations 40 to 50 miles away without static. The AM reception is adequate and works about as good as AM radio can.

The radio also has a very important feature of weather alerts from NOAA. You can program it to only alert you on weather events in your area (county). This is an important safety feature I cannot suggest more.

To be honest, I didn't need an atomic alarm clock or an FM radio as I already had those needs met. I also have a nice collection of scanners but I had a specific need (want) and this scanner fit the bill - almost.

I will digress for a second and mention that many metropolitan areas no longer use conventional radios for public safety agencies. Conventional means each agency has a dedicated radio frequency and many times departments inside of each agency have their own dedicated frequency. It doesn't take long to realize that a lot of frequencies are needed.

To combat this, many public safety agencies (and sometimes large businesses) will use a trunked radio system. To monitor trunked radio systems, you need a scanner capable of receiving (following) the system.

One night my husband and I were out on the porch discussing various things from our youth. Somehow the subject of police scanners came up. We needed a new clock radio with alarm and since we live on an island in NE in a flood zone I joked that what we needed was a police/fire/emergency scanner with built in radio, weather band that could be taken on the run.

Not being well versed on today's scanners (I am of the era of Smokey and the Bandit) was very surprised and delighted to find they do make such an item. It does an awful lot for a small sized unit. And being an electronic brand name snob I felt I could take the chance on getting a well made unit from bearcat/uniden.

Well we set it all up and programmed it BUT found lots of discrepancies on the web as far as what the correct frequency numbers are for police/fire in our area. So we let it do its thing where it scanned and picked up local frequencies and some from far away as well.

It was the weekend so we could not call the toll free number provided with the directions (directions? We don't need no stinkin' directions!) which will tell you the freqency numbers of services in your area.

Rather than that, however, my husband opted to bring it to a local man who for a small fee entered the areas/services we were looking for. i imagine the true scanner enthusiast would of called or had those numbers already. Just be careful of info found on the web.

The weather alert/band features are interesting and handy to have, too. We have lived through various hurricanes/blizzards and it is nice to have something informative that runs on batteries as well as standard electric.

Just another toy that I could live without. But it sure is lots of fun scanning the frequencies, listening to police, fire, and airport chatter.

GREAT weather radio. This function is real nice.

Do you need this item - absolutely not.

Will you have fun with it - absolutely yes.

PROS: I always compare conventional non-digital scanners with the Granddaddy of them all, the old Realistic Pro-2006. Surprisingly this Uniden holds its own in the side to side comparison and is a bargain and can easily be picked up on sale (as I did at Farm and Fleet) for about $110. I was surprised to find out that the BC370CRS has triple conversion and does a decent job of close channel rejection even on a base antenna near several broadcast radio towers - not quite as good as the Pro-2006, but considering how inexpensive the BC370CRS is, it does a GREAT job. I would say that average effective range using a cheap base antenna to be between 75-90 miles and even farther when atmospheric conditions are perfect. The speaker quality is also pretty good and I elected not to use an external speaker as I do with some other models I use. Programming is straight forward and uses the same method that dates all the way back to the 70s, so ANYONE should be able to program and use this without even reading the manual. If you do need to read the manual, it too is pretty straight forward. In reality, when compared to all available scanners, it is probably only a 4-star, but for the money it's a 5-star as you can't get anything even close to it in this price range. The battery backup is both a positive and negative as you will read in my "cons" section. I'm not aware of another scanner that offers battery backup during power outages.
CONS: I have all my receivers hook into a main power strip so I can power up all the units with the touch of a single button. By shutting down the BC370CRS using a center power supply the scanner keeps running on battery backup. If the batteries are not in the BC370CRS, then it will not turn back on when the main power source is activated.
