BC-RH96 Remote Head


Controls all functions of the:

Including Volume and Squelch. Just add a remote speaker for complete remote operation. This unit was introduced in 2007, and was discontinued by Uniden the same year for low sales. A second run was produced in 2011-2012 for ScannerMaster using available parts, there will be no more produced.

The RH96 will work with the BCD996P2 but only with a converter, such as described at this link. Basically this converts the model request from the radio from "BCD996P2" to "BCD996XT". This is not supported nor endorsed by Uniden but has been shown to work.

Firmware updates are made thru a Uniden serial port on the rear of the unit. Firmware 2.x required for XT series scanners. Discontinued.
