• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Got me a question.... Will the Whistler TRX-2 pick up the DMR Motorola Connect Plus (TRBO) system? If so what portable radio is out there that does this system also? I'm just trying to get a feel as to what is out there now since my 996xt and 396xt are all but about obsolete for Mercer County since all the good listening in now on NEXEDGE.


Thanks, Scott in Farrell

Scott,

Yes, the Whistler will pick up the TriConnex system just fine. The Whistler TRX-2 is a good choice since it provides DMR and is supposed to provide NXDN support in the future [if it doesn't already]. The BCD436HP/BCD536HP do DMR well too -- but I don't know if they have definitive plans to support NXDN.

As far as portable radios (I suspect you mean commercial), I don't have any experience with commercial radios.
