• 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:

I have asked that same question before and sent Whistler Emails on several occasions. I have yet to get a response on that particular question.

Call them again. Maybe when you called they didn't have any. Doesn't hurt to give them a ring again. Ask for Bryan , I've talked to him a few times before.

The remote head for the 1098 is available for purchase. Please call customer service and ask for Bryan, as was mentioned, and he should be able to get you set up.

Anyone care to save folks some time on the phone (and lighten Bryan's call queue) and share pricing?

Following up on my previous post, the WS1098 control head from Whistler is $99. That does not include local sales tax and $5 shipping.

Happy scanning,

That sure seems like a reasonable price to me for a 1098 control head, I though it would be more. Might have to look into getting one sometime.

Got the 1098 head for my 1095 for Christmas. Seems to work fine, however I'm somewhat disappointed by the dim backlight in the area of the keypad. Compared to the display, the numeric pad backlight is almost non-existant. Anyone else have this experience? (Yes, the settings are configured for backlight of both areas.)
