Uniden Scanner Close-Call Range Test

How far away does the “Close Call” feature on Uniden scanners work?

I just tried a test in a suburban area in a large parking lot. An FRS radio worked reliably at 100 feet and 80% of the time at 250 feet.

One thing I did notice was that if the signal gradually increases, such as walking toward the scanner with the talk button down, the scanner did not activate.

There didn’t seem to be much actual numerical information about this feature on the web, so I hope this test is useful to others considering a scanner with this feature.
