Whistler TRX scanners DO record a visual record along with audio recordings. In fact, that is pretty much all I do with mine. The software produces a list of all recordings (Audio Index) along with all the talkgroup, unit ID, frequency, PL, DPL, NAC...just about everything. I just wish I could export that recording list. Too much is locked down in their exclusive software. But at least the index has all the info. A column for Access Info (NAC,PL, DPL) would be appreciated though. Right now it only shows up top on a single recording selection. That should be an easy add...if Whistler is paying attention.The thing I find most discouraging about the Whistler scanners is the lack of software. Recording a visual record on a computer is a very handy tool.
