Q&A :  
How is the UK version different from the USA version.
Whistler have made a UK selection (on start up) in the scanner menu, to ensure that the scanner covers the UK frequency bands and with the appropriate frequency steps for the UK.
Can the radio receive UK DMR services including Amateur Radio DMR
The radios will receive both amateur and commercial DMR transmissions, as apart from the frequency they are fundamentally the same mode
The WS 1089 is supplied with software and users can select the mode when writing memories or select auto and it will work out the mode itself!
Can the Radio receive MOTOTRBO protocol ?
No it cannot, but the new TRX-1 and TRX-2 models can!
