We at large want to know if we all bought $500 dollar glorified conventional scanners? Thank you for your time. I anticipate your response.

Sincerely,

If "this" in the first post refers to what looks like a support email in the second post, be advised that the problem was found and fixed a bit before today (25 April 2017).

It was fixed last week after user scan18 sent Whistler some logs.

You're welcome.

Saying "you're welcome" implies that you had something to do with the fix. In this case, you didn't.

The fix was implemented based solely on the log files sent by scan18.

In addition if there are several issues that need to be addressed, we will look to bundle them instead of releasing 3 or 4 versions several days apart.
Please be patient and I am sure the issue will be resolved shortly.

Regards,
Mike

Did they give you any update on the 668/1080? I've ran into the exact same problem that you're having and tried tweaking with multiple settings with no success.

No update... I am hoping they put the fix into an update for the 1080.

Default I wish Whistler would hurry up

Please hurry up Whistler on this firmware update. I often want to throw my TRX-1 out the window due to the crap P25 performance (particularly on VHF).

But keep in mind that the specific fix was related to the fact that the TRX-1 would not recognize my local system at all. Performance wasn't poor or subpar, it was completely non-existent. There may be no guarantee it will help anyone who is just having poor performance.

Have you tried seeing if the unit picks it up when in a limit search?
