Does it come with a programming cable, or did they change it to a simple USB cable?

The prices will come down on these models when new models are out to replace them. But new models won't come out unless they can make a profit on the present models and feel they will make more on producing new models.

I think if they will produce a new model that meets the needs and wants of the consumer they will sell more. Many more agencies in this area are switching to other digital formats, in particular, TRBO. I have a GRE 800, which does a great job, but it won't receive TRBO, etc. So, if more and more agencies switch to one of these other digital formats, there is no need for me to buy a new scanner, as long as mine is working.

The only digital scanner from Whistler that I have any real interest in is the WS-1095. I'm sure other people are in the same boat and want to see a good alternative to the disappointing x36HP line from Uniden.

Agreed 1000%. I already have an excellent mobile analog trunker (BC15XT), an excellent digital HH (PRO-18) and an excellent mobile digital trunker (BCD996XT). I'm not in need of Phase II just yet so what I have works very well for me, if I were to need Phase II I would be looking to the WS-1095.

WS1065 at ham station is a good deal. Not sure if they have it or not or its coming soon. Better than amazon pricing.

Same here. While there aren't any Phase 2 systems in this area yet, I'd like to have a WS-1095 for my truck because of the detachable faceplate.

The WS1095 is the Whistler version of the unreleased GRE PSR-900 (the mobile/base version of the PSR-800). As for how much, no one knows for sure until down the road when they finally start production of these units and release them for sale.
