Uniden BD996 Discriminator tap

OK, I dug around a little and it appears our friends at Uniden made it real easy!

Take off the outer case shell, and then the top inner case. Just about dead center on the board look for the solder pad labeled "DISC". Run a single insulated wire to this point to a jack of your choice (I prefer RCA jacks) mounted on the rear of the radio. I also like to use a tantalum capacitor in line with the jack as well.

If you take the bottom inner cover off the radio you will see the best place to install the jack appears to be the area of the bar code/serial number label. This is kind of thick double walled metal so be careful drilling. You could also just run an audio cable into the radio through the threaded rear hole or even one of the holes on either side of the radio's rear.
