New software on the way for UBCD436-PT and the Desktop UBCD536-PT

Butel software have updated their ARC536 Scanner software to accept the Uniden UBCD436-PT. However on testing the software this afternoon, I have found that the software will recognise the Scanner and let you download the data, but when you try to upload the data back to the scanner - it does not accept any changes you have made.

I will update this information as soon as I find an answer to the issue.

New Updated Micro-SD Cards for the UBCD436-PT or BCD436HP and BCD536HP Scanners.

Purchased a BCD436HP, BCD536HP or own a UBCD436-PT and now want to use it to monitor the Victorian Emergency Services - SA GRN or the NSW GRN?

Available NOW! Updated Micro-SD Card for your BCD436HP, BCD536HP and UBCD436-PT Scanner to monitor the Victorian Regional Police - Victorian SES - St John Ambulance and HF,UHF CB and MMR (Melbourne Metro Radio).
SA GRN or NSW GRN inc RFS.




Contact me at ubcd396xt@outlook.com for your Micro-SD Card.


As you can see from the pictures below - both scanners look identical but except for the model numbers.

One on the RIGHT is the new CFA UBCD436-PT
* Hard to see in the photo, but the UBCD436-PT's screen is also not as bright as the BCD436-PT.


 
 
Sentinel Software can not be shared by the scanners.
Each scanner has its own version.

Butel Software are currently developing a version of software to suit the new
UBCD436-PT and the pending UBCD536-PT desktop.

Questions?
 
Q - Can I put the Micro-SD from my BCD436HP into the UBCD436-PT and will it work?
A - NO - They both have different firmware and a card from either unit will not work in the other unless it has been formatted - meaning data erased.
 
Q - Can you load data from the US Sentinel Software into the Aussie Sentinel Software.
A - NO - again they are both different. You can however have both software programs open and cut and paste between them, but very time consuming.
 
Q- Can the UBCD436-PT work for Tasmania's EDACS systems.
A - the UBCD436-PT has the same gap in the 800 Mhz range as it's US cousin.
This does not seem to have been resolved - I believe that because the CFA had no interest in the 800Mhz range, this was not updated from the US model.
  Let's hope that the Public version of the scanner due in April 2016 has this resolved!
 
UBCD436-PT has a gap at 868.9875MHz and then jumps to 894.0125Mhz - Same as the BCD436HP.

NSW and RFS Data base - available for UBCD396XT



NSW GRN (inc ACT) and the NSW RURAL FIRE SERVICE - DATA BASE.

Look no further! A complete data base covering all major emergency services and the RFS.
 
 
For those of you who use your Scanner to monitor the  NSW GRN and the New South Wales Rural Fire Service, I have just completed an updated data-base to add to your UBCD396XT Scanner.
The revised data-base contains not only all the NSW Rural Fire Service PMR Digital and Analogue channels, it has also been updated to now include the four Region Operational Channels and Fire ground channels and the NSW GRN Fire Channels.
 
This is a complete `Ready To Go' system - simply upload to your scanner - turn it on and go!
 
This is the only data-base of it's kind available in Australia.
 
Price - $20 - e-mail version.
 
 
This database will save you hours of time and countless headaches trying to set up your scanner.
 
If you have already purchased a NSW RFS database from me - this NEW revised version is yours FREE!
 
Simply e-mail your request to this address - ubcd396xt@outlook.com
 
As always - back up service is a phone call away or via e-mail.
 
THE FILE WAS CREATED USING FREESCAN SOFTWARE. YOU WILL REQUIRE FREESCAN SOFTWARE TO OPEN THIS FILE AND UPLOAD TO YOUR SCANNER.
 
A COPY CREATED FOR `BUTEL' SOFTWARE IS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
 
THE DATA BASE CASE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE UBCD396T OR UBCD996XT SCANNER AS THE AMOUNT OF `TALKGROUPS' USED IN THE DATABASE EXCEEDS THE MEMORY CAPACITY OF THESE EARLIER MODEL SCANNERS.
 
THIS DATA BASE CAN HOWEVER BE USED WITH THE FOLLOWING US MODELS
BCD396XT HANDHELD AND THE BCD996XT DESKTOP
