Mike, hoping you pick this up.

I'm thinking of buying the handheld whistler, once I get it, say I have a frequency but no other information, to your knowledge, will the whistler just work everything out itself, TG's, CC's etc?

Im looking for something that I can just put a digital frequency into without any need to use a computer etc...

Thank you.

You can enter a frequency into the scanner to receive a digital signal, BUT you are asked for a number of parameters by the scanner...
The easiest way is to set up a search covering the frequency you want to receive, the scanner will automatically decode the audio and display the digital paramaters, the searched frequency can then be saved from the keypad, all you need to do is tell the scanner that the saved frequency is DMR or whatever. All this can be done from the keypad but a PC does make life easier..

As I already have an AOR AR-DV1 that does just about every mode I just needed a handheld for DMR, so I went for the WS1088. this I purchased from Moonraker when the Whistler range first appeared in the UK.
Moonraker are the UK distributer for Whistler in the UK and supply ML&S, W&S, Nevada etc.
At the moment they are all selling the WS1088 at the same price of £349.

Whistler do the WS1098 and TRX-2, analogue and DMR about the same in performance, the TRX-2 is upgradable due to having more memory - and a bigger price tag..

My 2 pence worth.I have a TRX 2.Used to programming PMR etc for many years.The Whistler concept of object scanning takes a bit of getting into but it works.On all the range of radio's the software still needs work.In the area of band plan, frequency steps in the search menu needs to be user selectable.It does not trunk track as such on DMR, it never will be able to as it does not interact with the DMR trunk system.But as "best endevours" it works fine & DMR voice is good.All I can say it works for me.You need to give yourself time to get to get your head around it.The learning curve is well worth it.
