You may as well add to the non-trunking list. "Discriminator-tapped Scanner + DSD software + PC"

And to the trunking list "ADCR25 circuit board and software + PC"

Given you've mentioned the US BCD436HP and BCD536HP units you might want to include the BCD325P2 and BCD996P2 units now that they've had a DMR upgrade option released.

I wish AOR would make available a software upgrade for their P25-8600 and ARD25 digital decoder boards to decode DMR, NXDN etc.

There are enough FPGAs on board to do it I rekon.

Indeed. Seems to have been upgraded last week. Added.

I can't see a single FPGA on that board...

There's an Altera Cyclone EP1C6 underneath. I thought the larger chip visible in that picture was another one. It's a micro-controller. :oops:

Good Post to start Scotty.
It would also be good to hear from members that already have these Digital scanners & what the software is like to program them with.

Thanks, John.

By way of update, the Whistler TRX-1/2 and WS1088/1098 have been confirmed on other sites as having an Australian band plan in the latest firmware.

This allows access to frequencies between 70Mhz - 87.5Mhz, but unsure yet if it allows access to the missing 800Mhz areas.

Unfortunately for some reason I cannot edit the original post to add these - mods can you assist by allowing access?

I can't tell if it's just you or a global thing, but I'll ask the admin...
