Versatile, PC-Programmable Handheld Scanning

Easily Monitor "Action" Bands

You can use the BC95XLTB to monitor police and fire departments (including rescue and paramedics), NOAA weather transmissions, business/industrial radio, utilities, marine and amateur (ham radio) bands, and air band transmissions. Of course, scanning the 32,000 available frequencies can be time-consuming and frustrating, which is why Uniden added such functions as Close Call capture technology, which instantly tunes to signals from nearby transmitters to help you detect and identify local signals.

PC-Programmable Memory

The BC95XLTB features a comprehensive memory that holds up to 200 programmed channels over 10 banks (20 per bank). You can program frequencies into the scanner's memory either manually or using optional PC software available from Uniden.

Preset Service Banks With Channel Scan/Search

The scanner also offers six preset service banks, with preset frequencies for police, fire/emergency, aircraft, ham, marine, and weather, making it easy to locate specific types of calls. And should you want to regularly monitor a few specific channels, you can designate them as "priority" channels. The BC95XLTB will then check those channels every two seconds while it scans each bank, so you never miss an important transmission. Other scanning functions include 10 programmable search ranges for finding unlisted frequencies in your area and a two-second scan delay that lets you hear any replies to the original transmission before moving on.

Don't Lose Your Settings

Thanks to the key lock, you won't accidentally change the programming while carrying the scanner in your pocket. Add in a memory backup that preserves stored frequencies even if the scanner loses power and an easy-to-read, backlit display and you're ready for virtually any scanning situation.

Additional Features

The scanner comes with a flexible antenna with a BNC connector, ensuring adequate reception in strong signal areas (a separately sold external antenna will further improve reception), along with an AC adapter. As an alternative, you can power the scanner using two AA alkaline or rechargeable batteries (the latter can even be recharged while in the scanner). The unit is also backed by a one-year warranty.

Note on Model Number

The "B" in the model number BC95XLTB refers to the box packaging that Uniden has transitioned over to from a clamshell on this product. The Uniden BC95XLT is the same exact product as the Uniden BC95XLTB and all devices themselves will display the model number BC95XLT.

Not this one: you have to first push the Function button, then Lockout.
Shawn Brown
I also use it to pick up police and fire transmission where I live, as well as some of the severe weather broacasts.
Walter Subora
I'd also note that the scanner is MUCH easier to use if you purchase Uniden's programming software and USB cable.

This is a fine searching/scanning radio (with scanning defined as finding stations within the frequencies that have been stored by the user in banks of 10 with 20 banks available). It is very well made and should last a long time. Many of the numerous keys perform two functions, one as labeled and a second one using the FN key when pressed first. It is a fairly heavy hand-held unit with back-lighting supplied automatically only when needed or separately when desired by the user. This unit the new bc95xlt (or the newer designation bc95xltb) is an update of the earlier Uniden model that had railroad band searching (by individual channels) for example directly within the six pre-programmed service search bands, but now to do railroad listening you can simply specify one of the 10 unspecified frequency search bands instead. Other reviewers have found this change to be totally adequate even if you are a railroad enthusiast just like I am.
I am also into aircraft band listening and this is still designated within the 6 pre-programmed service band search sequence. Also, the weather bands which don't search automatically (since there are only 7 USA channels) are extremely clear with no static at all. I am extremely pleased with this unit and I am very glad that I was able to get it at this very low price (compared to the bc72xlt which is still just like the old version of the bc95xlt as can readily be confirmed on Uniden's own website).

The unit also has a nice built-in speaker that is surprisingly adequate for everyday listening, but also comes with a mini-plug jack for a monaural earphone (but not supplied surprisingly!). It also has a separate BNC antenna jack (and it does come with the antenna!) as well as analog controls for both squelch and separately for the speaker volume.

I was scared to buy this item after reading how hard it was to program it from the reviews. It could not be easier! I read the directions through twice which is important and had 5 banks loaded up with all the local agencies in less than an hour. It's a fun toy. I purchased it for emegencies since we live near a oil coker plant. Twice it lit up the sky when they had to release gases. It looked like a bomb had been dropped. When this kind of thing happens all phone lines are busy. No reaching police or fire. Nice to have a scanner!!!!

BEST FEATURES? That it gets the 800 frequencies and its compact size.
WORST FEATURES? Too many steps to do stuff, too few buttons (replaced with "Function" button), on/off switch is NOT in the volume control as other scanners usally are.
RECOMMEND TO FIRST-TIME SCANNER BUYER? Most definately!
RECOMMEND TO PREVIOUS SCANNER OWNERS? No way! (You'll understand if you buy one.)

I've owned tons of hand-held scanners since the 60's, and this one has to be the most complicated one I've had when it comes to a few simple features. Searching can be a nightmare to get started. Most scanners only take the simple push of one button to instantly lock out a channel. Not this one: you have to first push the Function button, then Lockout. Anytime you have to push TWO buttons to operate a feature only makes it more complicated to use, especially in the dark. Even with a few other functions there are far too many buttons to press and steps to take. I think Uniden should have just put more buttons on it rather than make a "function" button. Heck, 1 more row of 4 buttons would have solve so many issues! The USB plug is a cool feature if I buy the program, but it seems like adding more complications to an already complicated item. I don't like having an On/Off button in front. I'm used to every scanner I've ever owned only taking a simple turn of the volume knob to turn on or off and this one is far from this easy. It does what it was designed to do: it scans. Not the finest sound quality I've heard. I think the best feature is the compact size. I ride a motorcycle and love having a scanner stuffed into my inside pocket with an earplug in my ear, and this one is perfect for this!

We bought this scanner after much research so we could stay in touch with what's goin' on out there. We live in a rural area so I didn't know what to expect for reception, but we were surprised at the distances for some of the conversations. Fortunately the area we wanted to cover uses only conventional frequencies ( no trunking) so this radio works fine.
After reading many reviews and the owner's manual, it really wasn't hard to program. A couple of hints: in the manual you will find some recomended web sites all of which are very good. I don't think I can use site names here, but go to the one with "Reference" in the name and you will find every frequency you could want all cross referenced and searchable. I found the easiest was to bring up the state I was interested in and go from there.
Also, after you find the frequencies you want, organize them on paper however you want, number them 1 to 200 and you are ready. Don't be put off by banks,etc. As you are numbering them, every twenty (#1,21,41,61,etc) starts a new bank. So if there are some you won't use all the time, put them in a separate bank so you can turn them off when you don't need them.
Anyway, the scanner works great, easy to use, sound is fine for a small portable. I'd kinda like to see them come out with a similar unit that could hold 300-500 frequencies, but we are very happy with this one!
