....is now in stock on the RS website.

$599.99 seems a little steep. The PRO-651 is $200 cheaper. Aren't the pretty much the same radio?

Anyway, just thought I'd throw that out there.

Wow!

IMHO, that's only $275 more than what the the RRP should be on these (essentially 10 year old technology) models :)

That's why RS is pretty much a dead company at this point. The corporation has completely lost their mind. Good Night....

Sheesh, $600.00, $800.00, A few more dollars, you can get a computer.. As far as that Whistler/ pro 106 goes, only shiny buttons and updated V-scanners I bet.. Maine wont be in it, we are still making our system, SO, I say-- best of luck getting THAT much outta me for 1 scanner... It needs a few more tricks.. TRBO/NEXDEN/PHASE II/,,,THEN we'll talk...

Owing the 106 I can say I'm not a fan of the "object oriented" scanning memory setup and prefer the Uniden approach but I will say these Whistler ones - in black - look better than the previous GRE/RadioShack ones in silver and grays. I'll give Whistler a little credit for changing the look for the better...even if the guts are the same. Can't say that improvement is worth that price hike, though...

I wonder if you can clone from 106---whistler, or reverse
The User's Guide for the Pro-651 (Pro-106 clone) indicates that cloning is supported between the GRE PSR-500/600, RS Pro-106/197/651/652, and Whistler WS-1040/1065.
