I do however agree that Whistler will likely make minimal to no changes to these in order to get them back on the market.
I was referring to the 2 digital models they are now advertising (197/106)not the 800/900

If whistler were smart and upgraded dsp and cpu with new coding and software vocoder and bam the new 197's would support TDMA
