Just a question (it may have been asked and anwered before but I can't find the thread!)
What are the differences between the ws1098 and trx2 digital scanners?
Cheers!

The ability on the TRX2 to receive the mode NXDN - which at the moment is little used in the UK..
Also the TRX2 is said by Whistler to have more memory so it can accommodate future additional modes..

Cheers Mike, I thought it that the ws1088 had gaps and the trx2 hadn't any, I didn't realise it was a lack of support for NXDN and future upgrades. Thanks for the explanation!
