About this deal

My main area of interest will be Low Power and I can merge my interest in radio with my interest in hill walking. Last year during a day-trip to Manchester Airport Visitor Centre, I nearly lost my Kenwood D74 and I vowed not to take it to places like that again! The MRW-125 super gainer antenna has been designed for use with the Uniden Bearcat UBC-125XLT, and all other handheld scanners.

But now I've got more leisure time, I took the Foundation Course at West Manchester Radio Club and passed the exam on the 21st Feb 2019. I’ve had it here in the editor’s shack and used it with both the Whistler TRX-1 and the ICOM IC-R20 (see pics). Ideal for listening to the communication from Civil Air traffic Control, Boats, truckers operating on CB radio, Ham Radio/Amateur Operators, Sporting events, Churches and Mosques etc.I noticed that the previous owner had filled Banks 7,8, 9 and 10 with all the UK Military aviation frequencies, so I left them there. The Uniden UBC125XLT is a 500 channel handheld radio scanner, which covers frequencies 25-88MHz, 108-174MHz, 225 - 512MHz and 806 - 960MHz with 5/6. Scanning speed is pretty good and even when scanning my regulars in Bank 1, I can include all the Military channels without unduly slowing down the process. THE AUDIO OUTPUT SOCKET IS MEANT FOR A HEADPHONE AND NOT FOR AN EXTERNAL SPEAKER SO IF YOU PLUG IN AN EXTERNAL SPEAKER. Ideal for listening to the communciation from Civil Air traffic Control, CB Radio, Ham/Amateur Radio, sporting events, churches and mosques.

I've been a Shortwave Listener of sorts for many years and I've been interested in radio since being a child growing up in the 60's. The 125 is a neat, compact and light receiver which covers 25-960MHz (with gaps) and has 500 memories grouped into 10 Banks of 50 channels.Being a biker, it's easy to throw on a small rucksack loaded with my tiny IC-705 radio and a 20/40M BandHopper2 and quickly get to some interesting places for a bit of QRP DXing or SOTA work. which enables you to charge it by using your i-Phone or other smart phone USB adaptor or if you are on the road. In the 90's I considered taking the Amateur course at the local college but it was a very long-winded affair and I just couldn't afford the time. My QTH close to the West Pennine Moors means that I'm conveniently placed for many great walks and lofty take-offs. Als er een antwoord wordt gegeven op uw vraag, dan is het voor de gever van het antwoord nuttig om te weten als u er wel (of niet) mee geholpen bent!

Plugging it into my Discone (outside on the roof) I immediately started to pick up all the Manchester traffic, plus the odd contact from the Isle Of Man. Uniden UBC 125XLT is a quality handheld scanner in a stylish compact design that is made from robust materials.Although not blessed with great intelligence(lol), I've always been interested in the technical workings of the things around me. And yes, it does offer a big improvement over the standard rubber duckie or telescopic antenna supplied, especially on the civil and military airbands (which are lively, up here) and for the new digital modes. If you're out " playing radio", then you're very focused on what you're doing and you're using the radio all the time, but when it's a family day and you're focus is on aircraft, cakes, ice-cream and beer, then it's very easy to forget you've left your HT sat on a bench.
