Whistler TRX-2 Digital Scanner Radio - Mobile/Desktop

Recently acquired my fourth of these radios and it's amazing.

Sensitive receiver front end, punchy and clear audio and plenty of memory channels with decent length alpha tags (16 characters) to store your favourite channels.

The display is clear and easy to read and displays all the relevant information about the channel you are listening to (frequency, alpha tag, mode etc.)

The programming software is well thought out and intuitive and did not take long to get used to. The radio connects to a PC via a standard USB lead and the software automatically checks for application, firmware and DSP updates amongst other things.

Within a couple of hours I programmed all my favourite channels in and the concept of Scan Sets and Scan Lists make the receiver very versatile in that you can group your memories so that you can select certain groups of channels (for example ham traffic or aircraft) depending on your preference when listening.

In addition to analogue transmissions (AM and FM modes) it also receives DMR and certain other digital modes. The reproduced audio quality of the digital signal is very good.

The radio is small enough to take out and in use in the car (additional DC power lead provided).

The radio came with plenty of accessories (power lead, mains adaptor, carry case for front panel, mobile bracket, USB lead and a detailed instruction booklet).

Highly recommended.

The only thing I could wish for is D-STAR and C4FM support!

The TRX-2 allows the user the ability to group their stored objects using up to 200 Scan lists plus a special Skywarn scan list. Objects can be mapped to as many Scan lists as desired, giving you complete flexibility for grouping objects and selecting groups in any combination for scanning.
    • Programmable audible alarms can be configured to sound when certain Scannable Objects are active. Can be used in conjunction with, or separately from, the Alert LED described above.
    • Record received audio from selected objects and searches to the Micro SD card. Replay recorded audio using a powerful built-in playback system or transfer to PC for playback and archiving. Record up to 50 hours of audio on the 2 GB microSDr
    • Date and time stamp recorded audio files, and “alarm clock” function allows you to program the scanner to wake up and start scanning at a specific time each day.
    • A built-in Discriminator Output provides raw discriminator signal to third party signal decoding software without risky hardware modifications.
    • Predefined service search ranges make it easy to find activity in your area.
    • A simplified keypad and display with familiar Scan, Pause, Skip and Navigation controls make it easy for you to use your TRX-2. Behind the scenes, Whistler’s exclusive Object Oriented database runs the show, with support for millions of stored objects, limited only by MicroSD card capacity.
    • With the expanded V-Scanner II (VS-II) storage system, you can use the TRX-2 PC Application to save up to 200 V-Scanner configurations on the MicroSD Card, which can be recalled at any time in the field using the radio’s keypad.
    • Industry-standard Composite Device USB interface with USB Mass Storage Device (MSD) and Serial Data (CDC) support. Access the MicroSD card without removing it from the radio, stream decoded Control Channel data and upgrade your radio’s firmware over USB. Mini USB cable included.
    • The TRX-2 detects and masks digital voice audio, and decodes RadioID/TalkgroupID data embedded in voice packets.
    • Uses an industry-standard MicroSD card to store the RadioReference data library and all of your programming - capacity for millions of stored objects! Supports cards up to 32 GB
    • Scans most common trunked radio system signaling formats, including Motorola, EDACS, LTR, and P25 trunked radio networks. Both group and individual call monitoring are supported.
    • Quickly sweeps the TRX-2's frequency ranges for transmissions from nearby sources. When a nearby transmission is found, the TRX-2 automatically tunes to that frequency and receives the traffic. Lockout found frequencies and continue searching the same band.
    • Customize existing programming or add new objects to scan, and keep your TRX-2 firmware and Library data up to date.
    • The backlight can be programmed to flash with custom flash patterns when certain objects are active, providing another way to alerting the operator when important radio traffic is present.
    • displays the weather event and sounds an alert for a specific county or counties of your choice.
    • Scan Sets expand the functionality of Scan lists by allowing you to define different combinations of enabled Scanlists as Scan Sets, then you can select one or more Scan Sets for scanning using a simple menu system. With Scan lists and Scan Sets you have unlimited possibilities for grouping, enabling and disabling objects for scanning.
    • Shows relative strength of received signals. Slim, compact case design with a textured exterior finish and large speaker - Designed for durability, one-handed operation and ease of use.
    • provides instant access to frequencies used by storm spotter networks. Monitor storm conditions as they occur, and become aware of dangerous conditions before the media or emergency management officials are able to announce them to the general public.
    • The entire USA and Canada databases from www.radioreference.com are stored on a standard MicroSD Card that is included with the TRX-2, giving you access to the most comprehensive radio data available without connecting the TRX-2 to a computer or the Internet! Free downloads of updated database, CPU and DSP firmware.
    • Keep your radio’s CPU and DSP firmware and RadioReference library current with enhancements and updates as they become available with free upgrades!
    • Programmable tri-color LED displays thousands of colors that can be used to indicate different types of activity or activity on special channels. Program color sequences with multiple colors for special alerts, even emulate the red/blue strobe of police vehicles.
