Uniden Bearcat BC125AT / UBC125XLT


The UBC125XLT and its US equivalent BC125AT are modern scanners, that combine a broad frequency range with many functions.

It's not too difficult to equip this scanner with a discriminator output. The existing earphone socket can be reused, so no drilling is required


The scanner can be opened by removing 6 screws. The circuit board containing the key contacts and the display can be removed by unscrewing 2 screws as indicated on the board.

To access the receiver board, detacht the metal shield by removing another two screws.

Point 'DISC' carries the unfiltered audio
The 10 k resistor connected to the test point
The unfiltered audio can be found at the test point marked 'DISC'. With the next steps, a discriminator output is made:
  • Solder a 10 k resistor to test point 'DISC'.
  • Connect a piece of insulated wire to the resistor's other lead
  • Remove the indicated SMD resistor (marked '100')
  • Connect the other end of the wire to the left cleared solder pad
Using a stereo 3.5 mm plug, the headphone signal is available between the tip and ground. The discriminator output is available between the middle ring and ground.
