Below we’ve one of the first videos of the Bearcat 885 from Uniden. I’m already asked if this could come to Europe as a multi-norm. All I can say really is if it did it would I guess carry the President name? We’re fortunate that a very key Uniden gentleman reads the blog so would ultimately know more than anyone. Is it on the table to come currently? I think not! But I don’t know either if it’s considered or not. And yes I know the UK would need it also with SSB added.
Above is a photo of prototype rear end of 885 (I’m told) that shows RJ-45 for GPS and two antenna connections. 1 CB and 1 Scanner. I’m also told estimated price is in the area of $450 And yes! I’ve passed the word to a dealer about my interest in one.
As the radio can update it’s database of scanner information the next step is updatable firmware for CB radios that I forecasted 2015 as being possible. Let’s see whose first to implement its use.
