Uniden Bearcat 101


Back in 1974, Bearcat came out with it's first programmable scanner, the Bearcat BC-101. The BC-101 is interesting where you have to program the channels via the 16 switches on the front panel in a binary fashion. The scanner itself has 16 channels with 16 LED lights representing them, much like the old crystal scanners of the time. One other thing, the scanner has NO frequency display so you have to be sure you set the switches correctly by verifying them manually.
