Whistler TRX-2 Digital Desktop Scanner

Product Review (submitted on 2 October 2016):
The manual is confusing and in my opinion in the wrong order. Go straight to page 26 and read how to get into the program that will allow you to fill the scan lists, don't forget to set your bandplan to UK. Don't just switch on and dabble, you'll be wasting your time.
Make sure you copy the supplied SD card before using just in case and copy your set up too. The program has facilities for this.

As a receiver its absolutely ace; once set up you can see exactly how sensitive it is on the telescopic rod or whatever other antenna you have available. The display is clear and show exactly what you need to know.

Audio is briliant for strong signals and outdoes that from my AoR8600MkII and AOD300 combination [and sensitivity too].

Not tried the IF/Discriminator facility yet as I need to make a lead up; I suspect this will allow demod of paging and/or signal analysis on my spectrum analyser. Haven't tried the scanning facility either - doesn't interest me as I target known freqs.

Upto 32GB card can be used, useful because you can also record soundfiles.

An excellent bit of kit, performance and price wise that probably gives the same performance as one costing £1200+ where the name attracts a levy and its US$=£. Probbaly go for the TRX-1 as well.

All in all - worth the money; well made and does what it claims.
