Boot up time = use a smaller sized MicroSD. There's a thread somewhere on that. Switching from a 16g to 1-2g chip makes HUGE difference in speed. If you do not record audio, totally waste using bigger chip.The painfully long boot-up time. Although, that also could possibly be improved through some attention to my configuration.
Thank you for the replies!
I can't find a SDS200 in stock, so that is why I been thinking about getting the TRX-2.
So I wanted to hear everyones opinions on it
To see if it is worth getting, or holding off a long while for the sds200 to get in stock.
My main reason for the TRX-2, would be DMR and Simulcast. I do like the removable head option too.
I do have another question: For recording, can I program it to program ONLY certain channels as it scans?
Say I scan 1-5, but want only 3 to record. And not the rest. That possible with the TRX-2? The sds200, records but does them all and not select channels. Hopefully the TRX-2 will record certain channels, and not them all
Let me know, Thanks!!!
As long as you are not listening to a very busy system, the TRX-2 should work fine for DMR. As I believe others have already stated, the reason Whistler does not charge extra for DMR is because their scanners do not trunk-track DMR systems so they don't have to pay a licensing fee. Uniden, on the other hand, *does* pay the fee, so if you get the DMR upgrade the scanner can lock onto the control channel and follow the voice grants like it does on a P25 system. The Whistler scanners just scan the voice channels looking for traffic, which may work just fine for you.My main reason for the TRX-2, would be DMR and Simulcast.

Everything is on an SD card now. I can program in the entire USA. The tri-color LED makes it such that you can tell who you're hearing w/o looking at the display. But it also has the nice display like the PSR-310 & PSR-410.I want everyones thoughts and opinions on the TRX-2.
- What features you like?
EZ Scan lacks a lot of abilities. I worked with Whistler to get some new things added, but it still lacks. I want to be able to "share" programming with my other GRE brand radios, not have something "on an island". But the bigger problem is how poorly it handles reception of simulcast signals. I also found the audio output to be low on most conventional analog channels.2.Don't like?
Because I am a GRE-guy. I like the higher sensitivity and the user interface. When I was comparing the TRX with SDS from Uniden, the MSRPs were close. Unfortunately the value is not.3.Why you bought the TRX-2 over the Uniden models?
Horrible. I now own an SDS.How is it on simulcast?
I wrote a review last year on the TRX-1. Most of the points are still relevant.4. Etc....
If it's anything like the TRX-1, simulcast receive is pretty much non-existent. Even from within the coverage area. Then again my experience may differ from yours, it's a gamble. I sold my TRX-1 to help fund an SDS100. Though the SDS is mediocre on analog it's a champion with simulcast
- 4. How is it on simulcast?
Likes: I found the scanlist easier to understand and enable from the menu (there may be other methods) that the (how do you recall them all) hit and miss keystrokes on a Uniden. Progarams easily with the supplied software.Hi,
