I used to be a GRE man, died in the wool! Now, I am loyal to Uniden. I was highly disappointed in the lack of improvements inherent in the newest Whistler products. From what I've gathered from reading posts and talking to those that own both, Whistler hasn't progressed too far beyond the PSR 500 regarding decoding of digital.
Thank God, I've not had to visit my birthplace in many years. Typically, I move right angles to avoid Lubbock, but I have relatives who live near Abernasty. Having said this, I will be closely monitoring said system when I return to the area with my Tram mobile antenna and 436HP.
