Whistler TRX-1 Product Description

In the hectic world we live in today, it’s never been more important to be aware of the happenings in your community. With the Whistler TRX-1, you will catch all of the action and stay informed about what is important to you. The TRX-1 is the most affordable option to receive the latest digital radio system technologies.

The TRX-1 features a full numeric keypad and a straight-forward user interface. You can program the TRX-1 from the scanner or on a Windows computer using the included programming software. Customizable display options allow you to see the call information that is most important. And the adjustable backlight makes it easy to read the display, day or night.

Whistler radios are well-known to have sensitive receivers—which means you will hear radio traffic near and far—and the TRX-1 is no exception. Hear loud and clear digital calls, even from miles away.

iCopyRadio is here to help you get the most out of your scanner. The scanner ships overnight for free (you probably won’t find that anywhere else), and while your scanner is in the air, iCopyRadio will consult with you and design a scanner program tailored exactly to your location and goals.

iCopyRadio Recommendations (e.g. who should buy):

The Whistler TRX-1 is iCopyRadio’s pick for overall best scanner and is recommended for most customers. Because of the included digital modes (NXDN, DMR, P25) and the affordable retail price at iCopyRadio, the Whistler TRX-1 is easily the best value for a modern digital radio scanner. The TRX-1 receives the systems that most customers want to hear, and its user interface is manageable even for those new to scanning.

If you will require reception of ProVoice (EDACS digital), you will need to purchase a scanner that supports ProVoice, such as the Uniden SDS100 or Uniden BCD436HP. If you live near a P25 simulcast system or currently experience simulcast distortion, we recommend the Uniden SDS100.
