Uniden, Whistler Announce DMR Upgrades
Uniden and Whistler recently announced DMR support for select scanners. Uniden announced on May 16 support for the BCD436HP and BCD536HP via a $50 upgrade fee. The final firmware update allowing DMR should be out in a few weeks, but beta firmware has been available since last Friday. Uniden has set up a page with all the details. Whistler (which owns the intellectual property of now-defunct GRE) announced on May 17 support for DMR on the WS1080, WS1088, WS1095, and WS1098. The free update for those scanners was released on Tuesday. Additionally, Whistler will be releasing two new scanners by the end of this month with support for DMR - the TRX-1 and TRX-2. These scanners will also support NXDN at some point in the future.
