Uniden Australia and New Zealand CEO, Kunihisa Ishii said, “Uniden is pleased to assist The Country Fire Authority ahead of what is expected to be another gruelling fire season. We hope to help emergency service departments like the CFA prepare themselves as best as possible in the lead up to summer.”

The Uniden UBCD436-PT TruckTracker V digital handheld scanner offers state-of-the-art features ensuring it meets the specific and technical requirements of the CFA brigade. The intuitive UBCD436-PT is designed to be future-proof. It will be compatible with new developments in the CFA’s radios, including transition to P25 Phase 2.

The easy-to-use digital handheld scanner is pre-programmed with the current CFA and Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning (DELWP) radio channel plan, with the added benefit of receiving analogue and digital radio traffic.

Other practical features include Instant Replay to replay up to four minutes of recently received messages, a bright backlit keypad and LCD screen offer easy operation and viewing.
