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.
