I made it here... If you have any requests to see a HP-1 running in central IN, hit me up in this thread. If all goes well, I should have the unit I'm receiving from you today up and running on the MECA 1 feed by this evening.
I am still running my BCD996XT on the MECA 1 feed at the present time. I have cabling, sending of tags, etc. sorted out, and it makes sense to use the more "tunable" radio at a stationary location and the "handier" radio while portable. I must say, however, that I believe the HP-1 sounds slightly better when copying MECA 1 side-by-side with the 996XT. A "job well done" by Uniden, for sure!
Offer still stands--if anyone's "on the fence" about the HP-1 and wants to see one in person, hit me up here or through Jeff at Ham Station. He will take good care of you! The HP-1 is a great radio that an untrained monkey can run :)
