G'day. Owned a couple of 396xts and a 436pt for some time now. Just branched out and imported a Whistler 1098. Had a bit of a play with it and used Excel to convert much of the data from the Unidens. Really liking the Whistler - seems to work really well (very sensitive) on high band VHF, and runs the RMR Victoria very well. Audio is superb. Love the smaller remote head - much better than the Uniden RH-96s I have used previously. Been able to set up the scanlists with the same quick-keys as my Unidens so the transition has been seamless. Once you get your head around the Ezy-Scan software - :D . Overall, thumbs up from me. (Not a TRX-2, but those new features not needed where I live in regional Victoria). No hesitation in recommending the 1098 - great little scanner.

A few bugs in the PC app with regards to selecting the Australian bandplan.
But as stated is selectable via the Programming Menu / Global Settings.

They nearly got it right. Hopefully an updated update soon to rectify the issue...

Whistler Firmware Upgrade SNAFU...
From Whistler Wendy 25/5/17

"We made a few updates to the EZ-Scan software to fix some issues that people were having.
Unfortunately all of our testing machines are not having any issues that some have reported with Windows 7 and 8 so I am not sure if this will address those issues or not. For those that are having the socket time out issue, please let me know if this update solves your issue.

The update is available on the download server and on our website.

As always - we appreciate your assistance in letting us know anything that you encounter. Please use the scannerbugreports@whistlergroup.com email address to report any bugs/issues.

HAPPY SCANNING!

Here is what was fixed/addressed:

•Fixed issue when selecting the Australian bandplan for a trunked system showing the bandplan as blank the next time the data folder was opened.

•Fixed issue when selecting the Australian bandplan on the General Settings tab where the option would not be preserved and the prompt to set a bandplan would appear on the next load.

•Fixed an issue in the bandplan prompt where the United Kingdom and Australian bandplans where not being presented and options to be selected.

•Fixed issue on conventional import where certain frequencies in the air band were being rejected as invalid frequencies when they were in fact valid.

•When importing conventional objects, the result page now has an option to display a listing of items that could not be imported. These items typically have a frequency outside the ranges supported by the scanner.

•Fixed a regression issue where frequencies imported between 450 MHz and 470 MHz were being imported 3.125 KHz higher than they should have been."

When doing a 'limit search' with the Aus bandplan set the lowest freq I can enter in 'our VHF low band' is 70.0 MHz and the highest is 87.5 Mhz.

I hope that helps answer your question.

Some new updates now released.

PC App
CPU
Remote Control - Demo Software V2.0

Enjoying the ability to log details with my TRX-1 like I can with my Uniden units.

Also of note was this text "This is still a DEMO and the protocol has been provided for 3rd party developers to experiment and to create their own remote control UI."

So with that we may now see some more appealing software made available via the third parties.

It is great to have this ability with the TRX1 and TRX2 now.

Looking forward to seeing what is produced in the future by 3rd party developers with regards to software etc.

I had no issues with Zip Scanners. They were great and helpful when I got my TRX-1 through them.

I did not pay via PayPal though, I used a CC.

Personally, I would be discussing this with your financial institution and/or the method via which you made payment.

It could be something simple, but some merchants get itchy feet when dealing with people from overseas.

Send a few emails seeking clarification as to which way they recommend you to go. Start with the medium for which you made payment and/or your financial institution for further guidance.

It's could be something simple that needs to be cleared up

I bit the bullet short time ago and have TRX 1 - i am presently impressed with the radio. Although different to the Uniden and many other brands i have used - i am actively making up lists and folders .

I find it will be a great asset for Bathurst races - considering NXDN and DMR being used a lot now.

Bring on Bathurst 1000 say .

Note - im no longer living in Bathurst - located Mid North Coast , no more cold winters for me .

I am very happy with my TRX-1 and TRX-2.

I think you hit the nail on the head, they are different and this seems to be what some can't get the hang of. I think at the start we all had problems of some sort programming our later model Unidens etc, but through perseverance we worked it out.

A TRX is a must for the hardcore V8 fan these days due to Hytera and Kenwoods involvement.
At Phillip Island and Sandown there are V8 supercar repeater sites setup by 'Gearhouse Broadcasting' so a check of the ACMA database should reveal good info for Bathurst/Mount Panorama. I note there are listings for temporary radiocomms sites for Bathurst Races already.
