• 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:

TRX-1 UK Bandplan Not Quite Right

Nice to see a UK bandplan appear in the TRX-1 but it needs options to add 3.125 kHz and 6.25 kHz offsets or the option to tune in 3.125 kHz steps, the limit search doesn't stop on Tier III systems on frequencies like 154.09375 MHz 154.33125 MHz

It would be much nicer to be able to set a step and mode for limit search.

Also could there be an option to re-program the bands like Public Service search, why not make them user defined?

Its a shame the Whistler scanners seem so locked down and inflexible compared to the Unidens.

Do the Uniden scanners have different band plans like that? I thought all scanners just had the US and Canada band plans.

It appeared in the TRX-1 firmware update yesterday, Uniden only have USA and Canada plans but they are much more flexible than the Whistler scanners and its never caused a problem for me.

You may want to try the Flex step option on the unit.

You may want to use the scannersuggestions email link that Whistler provided to provide input. The bandplan appears to software driven so it would seem likely that changes and tweaks can be made.
