UBCD436PT & UBCD536PT Updates coming

Postby Pendulum » Fri Sep 02, 2016 2:01 am

I have been speaking with a good friend of mine tonight that happens to work at pacific telecommunications, he informs me that the research and development at uniden are working on a firmware update to make these radios more australia friendly.

this includes unlocking the cellular blocks on the 800Mhz and 900Mhz bands and also some other band changes (you tassie folk will be happy)

although he can't say when this update will be released he said that it was accepted that it will be by christmas 2016.

these radios will also have DMR capabilities however you will have to pay for that update as uniden have to pay royalties for this.

pacific telecommunications have exclusive rights to this radio for now and all purchases have to come from either them or their network of dealers.

if i hear anything else ill keep you all updated and in the loop

This may be good news for the future - but don't expect any updates until the scanner is available to the general public.

At the moment the scanner is intended as a CFA-centred scanner only. There is no business case for PT to make modifications beyond that if he scanner isn't freely available to those outside the CFA.

as far as i am aware the units are available to the general public but only through Pacific telecommunications network of dealers (give them a call and they will point you in the right direction)

Ironically I contacted PT using the contact form on their site in late July 2016 re the 436 and was advised it wouldn't be available as a general release until the CFA contract was fully met later this year. However a quick Google search shows this AU model (and the 536) is now being offered through other sellers to the public and has been for some months - definitely got a bum steer from PT!

I saw this post and thought it was going to say there was a new update with DMR included.

:cry:
