• 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:

For anybody asking if it will support NXDN-this and DMR-that, I think it's a pretty guaranteed bet that any NXDN / DMR decoding that is currently done on a TRX-1/TRX-2 will also be available on the TRX-100/200. Not sure why anyone would think that they would offer NXDN/DMR in the TRX-100/200 and then take a step backwards and only provide a partial list of trunked types that could be decoded. That would be downright silly, and they would be shooting themselves in the foot if they did that.

I'm moving forward with the assumption that when they say they will have NXDN/DMR support, they will have at least the same support for NXDN/DMR as they have now in the TRX-1/2.

I really didn't see this announcement coming, but I'm glad Whistler is going to be on board. A few things I like:

  • They actually advertise LSM support (good for them -- they weren't scared to make the claim)
  • Bluetooth will be available
  • NXDN / DMR available at no additional charge

Sounds pretty darned good to me. Although I know that talented hardware types have mentioned in the past that a bluetooth radio in a scanner may actually be a nightmare due to potential interference. So I guess we will see.

Hopefully, one can disable Bluetooth when it's not needed.

Hoooray!!!

Thanks for the exciting news, Wendy! I figured it was just a matter of time.

I love my TRX-1,but I'm running into issues with LSM as more and more agencies utilize this technology. I'm really looking forward to owning a TRX-100!

Thanks again!

At this point I am the only one to ask any question regarding NXDN. So it would only be a logical assumption you are referring to me. I thought my question was very clear and precise, "Will the new radios trunk NXDN"? Not very complicated. I do apologize for missing the announcement that the TRX 2 supports the trunking of NXDN. Now that I know that, my question certainly rises to the level of being silly.....

I think if NXDN trunking was supported, it would likely be in the announcement, since that would be an additional feature that the current Whistler scanners do not have.

Thank you, I certainly agree. I try to never assume anything, we know what happens there. I was hoping there might be something more concrete on the subject coming up later in this forum. Thanks again, take care.

The TRX-1/TRX-2 have had NXDN for some time. If you are referring specifically to trunking by monitoring the control channel, that may be a different story. But lots of people are certainly monitoring trunked systems with TRXs. I have one myself.

I'm not sure if any of the older generation Whistlers support NXDN though.
