What’s the easiest to use for basic scanning of known frequencies for a new user ?

I would say the AOR AR-DV1, but it is the most expensive at over a grand.. Next would be the Whistler TRX1.

It is not that bad, they all do your head in at first till you have learned to talk the talk and walk the walk :biggrin:

I got the Whistler TRX1 2 years ago it decodes NXDN and others with out having to pay for a licence key like you do for Uniden. The price of the Whistler is £419 far cheaper than the others. The software comes as a free download and is updated every few months.

This to me is a good scanner for the price, there are u-tube videos to show you how to programme it well worth the money.

i agree the uniden is overpriced. the whistler is a better dmr scanner than both the aor dv1 and uniden dmr scanners are i have all 3 plus dongles and dmr radios and i use dmr and analogue at work and program the radios for our work/member force of 52 + radios for part time and cover. the dv1 does have redeeming features like tetra and ease of use but not worth the price tag.

he is right though and its the best time for him to hear it before he makes a mistake. get a whistler the dv1 is overpriced and the uniden dmrs are in the same price range as the whistlers but crap. this is my personal experience but have a read up on it and its what most users are saying :thumbup:
