Attention Bearcat BCD536HP Owners, Monday Database Updates


A few Rockford Scanner fans own the Uniden Bearcat BCD536HP

We wanted to remind them that the newest database is updated every Monday.  It is pretty simple to update it, just use the Sentinal software (free) and click on update database.  This will update the frequency list database in your scanner.

Every Monday, the database is updated.

Instructions for Updating the Firmware and Database on the Uniden BCD536HP

First you will want to download the latest version of the Sentinel software from the HomePatrol website so that you can be sure you are getting the latest firmware and database updates. That can be downloaded from here:

Once you have the software installed, you will want to update the firmware by:

1. Connecting the scanner to the computer (USB Cable Detected Select USB mode will display)
2. Press “E” to select “Mass Storage”.
3. Select the UPDATE tab on the Sentinel software toolbar and click UPDATE FIRMWARE
4. Click OK on the next window that comes up
5. Once the update is completed, disconnect the scanner from the computer to allow the firmware to apply itself to the scanner.

You will see a status bar in the screen of the scanner and then the scanner will start up once more on its own.

6. Reconnect to the computer
7. Select the UPDATE tab on the Sentinel toolbar once more and click UPDATE MASTER HPDB
8. When the update is complete, select the SCANNER tab on the toolbar
9. Click on the WRITE TO SCANNER and then OK on the next window

When the update is complete, you can disconnect your radio from the computer so you can set it up once more for your area.

There is also an easy to read manual ~


Dear Jake, You Delivered This To The Wrong House


We normally wouldn’t post something like this. But we wanted to make sure this poor guy is aware, so he doesn’t think she said “no”

If you know Jake, please let him know he delivered it to the wrong house

Rockford Scanner Fan Anne: Around 10:15 last night. Location is Creekside Neighborhood . Three kids dropped this off and then rang my doorbell and ran. We could not find them to tell them it was the wrong house. Message does not belong to any of our neighbor’s. I don’t want the kid to feel bad. The message said “from Jake”
