The Uniden BR330T is one of those scanners that has a special place in my collection.  For many years it was my “go to” scanner.



What You Will Learn in This Week’s Podcast:

  • I purchased my BR330T back in 2007, right when they were discontinued.
  • At that time, they were $250USD for this radio making it about $322 radio in 2021 dollars.
  • This radio was ahead of it’s time and a unicorn in the scanner radio hobby
  • I have not seen another scanner since that can do what the BR330T was capable of achieving
  • The BR330T handheld scanner operates on 3 AA batteries or a 6v aux. power.
  • This radio has a built in battery charger
  • Besides Analog Conventional, the scanner also supported Motorola, EDACS, and LTR Trunking
  • The memory system uses an early version of Uniden’s Dynamic Memory Allocation
  • It supports basic features such as PL / DPL Decoding, Fire Tone out, and Priority Scaning
