The Bearcat BC100 was produced by Uniden predecessor Electra. It was the first hand-held, programmable radio scanner. The unit covered 30-50, 138-174, and 406-512 MHz. Sixteen memory channels were provided as well as a search function. Individual channels could be locked out during scan. Delay was fixed at 2 seconds for all channels.
Initial units had a screw-in antenna and a bottom battery cap that was held in by plastic tabs. Later models had a BNC antenna connection and a battery cap (and top cap) that was attached with screws.
Units were produced from 1981-1984(?).
