Up until now, every handheld trunking scanner on the market has been a huge, brick-like device.

Uniden recently announced the BC246T – a sub-compact trunk-tracking scanner! That’s never been done before, and most folks thought it would never happen!

Sweet mother of God! That thing is damn tiny! Just 4.5″ tall! And boy howdy it looks gorgeous. Support for long alpha tags appears to be part of the package too!

I’ll tell you this much – once this thing hits the streets I’m selling my Icom R2 and upgrading.
