Uniden Bearcat UBC360CLT - RadioShack / Realistic PRO-136


The Uniden Bearcat 360CLT and identical RadioShack / Realistic PRO-136 are recent base scanners. This type has a spacious layout, which makes it not too difficult to equip it with a discriminator output.

The receiver IC is an NJM2552. As the IC pins are separated only 0,65 mm (0.025"), good soldering skills are required, as well as a soldering iron with a fine tip.

The baseband audio can be found on pin 11.

Follow the next steps to make the discriminator output:
  • Install a 3.5 mm mono socket in the scanner's back
  • Connect a 10 k resistor to pin 11 of the receiver IC
  • Connect a 2.2 nF capacitor to the resistor's other lead. The other lead of the capacitor is soldered to the metal shield of the IF coil.
  • Connect the resistor/capacitor junction with the signal solder lug of the chassis socket (red wire)
  • Connect the chassis socket's ground lug with the metal shield of the IF coil (black wire)
