    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

TRX-1: Searching with TRX series

Anybody out there having the problem I'm having with setting up a search.

If I program my TRX-1 to search the 70cm Ham Band or the Business frequencies in the 460 range, it is searching in the wrong channel spacing and seems never to stop on the correct frequency. (I'm in the USA, and have that selected)

For instance if it detects a signal on 441.200MHZ it usually stops before center frequency on 441.196875.

So... 441.196875 that frequency is "off"just a little and seems to have an affect locking on to a digital signal at times when it stops before the center frequency. I'm experiencing the same thing in the 450 and 460 business bands. Often you can hear the traffic but I know it is not landing on the proper frequency.

FLEXSTEP and/or ZEROMATIC seem not to help.

Is anyone else experiencing this? My firmware has been updated within the last week and I'm not sure if I'm missing an important parameter or if there's something wrong with my unit.

Any thoughts appreciated.

TRX-1 Search

My software updated it a few days ago, assume it's the latest.

Says on holding the button on power up:

uP boot 1.3
uP Appl 5.0

I wonder if I'm getting the most current?

That is the current firmware - your DSP should be 3.0. Press and hold the menu button when the WHISTLER screen is shown and it will list all the versions.
