I finally pulled the plug and bought the TRX-1 after being out of scanning for years. I relocated to Ventura County, Ca and I think most freqs are VHF and looking for recommendations on an antenna to replace the stock one that comes with the unit. Also open to suggestions for a wide range antenna. I won't receive the unit for another couple of days. Just a side note. Whistler offers a Vet discount which helped me decide.
