With the 436 and the same 32GB card I can hear my local fire horn, turn on the 436 and not miss the call. Not even close with the TRX1.
Why 32GB?

I use 8GB and it takes many weeks to fill that.

I took my TRX-2 today on a seven hour trip from the Virginia Eastern Shore to Roanoke, VA. I scanned STARS most of the time and it seemed to do well. When I got to my hotel, I decided to work on tweaking my profile. I tried adding some new sites to the system and I noticed that some frequencies are rounding up/down to a 25 KHz equivalent. For exmaple, I type in 161.8875 and EZ Scan rounds it up to 161.8900

What gives? I'm guessing it's a setting in EZ Scan, but I'll be damned if I can find it.

EDIT: Found it! Had to enable Flexible Frequency entry.
