Talked to the people in the Whistler booth. The first run of radios will be for Radio Shack and should be in stores by the end of July. They will not be made in China or Japan and all production pieces are new from the original drawings and specs from GRE.
Scannermaster had 5 or 6 original PSR 800's at an asking price of $500. The rep said they were returns that had been recertified.
They did have their version of the PSR 800 on display along with their version of the Pro 106, and no one mentioned that they would or would not come out at the same time.
DMR and possibly other formats is in store for the first gen true Whistler's. Those won't be out til 2016 or later. We already have been told by Whistler as much. These 2014 models are all reworked GRE concepts, with a change made in the new version of the PSR-800/900's. They, like the Uniden BCD436HP/BCD536HP's... Will do proper P25 LSM Simulcast systems.
