If you look at the forum description, the bold lettering pretty much explains it:Why isn't the Whistler Forum open, the radio's have been released?
I'll second that. Whistler questions should be answered in the Whistler forum. As many here have noted, there is no more GRE. Additionally, any existing GRE issues are GRE issues not Whistler (and vice-versa of course)Personally I think it should have a dedicated forum now that they've been released under the Whistler name. There will likely be firmware updates and such specific to the rebadges (or not, who knows).
It will likely be years before they release a product of their own design.
If you look at the forum description, the bold lettering pretty much explains it:
[NOTICE: this forum will redirect to the GRE forum until Whistler designs their own scanners.]
Got to wait for something from their own creation instead of rebadges.
Except that RadioShack is a special case. RadioShack products are a mixture of both GRE and Uniden designs. Many of the models were designed exclusively for RadioShack which means that many of the models were never sold under the GRE or Uniden name and wouldn't be recognized as one of their scanners. It would also make it very inconvenient for scanner users looking to discuss an RadioShack scanners since they would have to read through a list of several dozen scanners to find which company made their scanner even though it has always been branded as a RadioShack scanner.Same logic should apply to Radio Shack, they do not desingns their own scanners.
