FS: Like-new PRO-668 Handheld Scanner with Whistler DMR/MotoTRBO Upgrade

#1 Post by trp » 13 Jun 2018 15:34

Up for sale is a like-new Radio Shack PRO-668 handheld scanner that has been updated by Whistler with their official DMR/MotoTRBO upgrade which makes this scanner equivalent to a Whistler WS1080. The scanner is as close to being brand-new as is possible and does not have one scratch or blemish on it. It was used in a smoke-free home and has never been used outside of my home (other than sending it to Whistler for the DMR/MotoTRBO upgrade). It even has the original plastic protection film still present on the screen and keypad area.

Included with the scanner will be the original box, owner’s manual, original 4 GB microSD card, original belt clip (never used), original antenna, original USB cable and a PRO-668/WS1080 nylon carrying case that is brand-new and has never been used. The scanner is at the very latest Whistler firmware for this scanner which is CPU 4.8 and DSP 3.1. The library database is currently at version 579 and the location database is currently at version 12. If any of those needs to be updated it will be done just prior to the sale to insure that you have the very latest versions when you receive your scanner.

The scanner will receive both analog and digital transmissions. The digital transmissions received by this scanner include P25 phase I, P25 phase 2 and DMR/MotoTRBO. Here’s a list of the PRO-668/WS1080 features:

Simple programming by ZIP Code
Multi–system trunking
Audio recording
Weather radio
Signal Stalker II
V-Scanner II
USB Interface, with PC programming software
RadioReference database (SD Card)
Masks encrypted audio
Decodes Radio ID and Talkgroup ID
Improved P25 functionality
Signal strength meter
Programmable alert LED
Discriminator output

If you are interested in purchasing or want further information or pictures please contact me via PM. (I can't attach pictures here because it says "Sorry, the board attachment quota has been reached.") The price for local cash pickup in Fall River, MA is $300. If you want it shipped there will be a $15 charge for USPS Priority Mail shipping and payment can be made by PayPal Friends & Family or by USPS money order only. Telephone contact to work out the details is perfectly fine with me so just PM your phone contact information and I will contact you directly.

If you want to see the pictures that I couldn't post on this site, here's the same ad with pictures included on Craigslist Southcoast: https://southcoast.craigslist.org/ele/d ... 29016.html

There was a technical issue with my original Craigslist Southcoast ad, so here is the updated working link if you want to view the PRO-668 pictures that I was unable to post here on Scan New England: https://southcoast.craigslist.org/ele/d ... 57000.html

The price for local cash pickup in Fall River, MA has been lowered to $275. If you want it shipped there will be a $15 charge for USPS Priority Mail shipping as noted in my original posting. Shipping will take place the same day payment is received and a tracking number will be emailed to you immediately after shipment.

As an addendum for those who may be unfamiliar, the official DMR/MotoTRBO upgrade installed in this scanner by Whistler cost $75 ($60 charge from Whistler plus inbound shipping/insurance cost). A stock Radio Shack PRO-668 that you may see advertised on eBay or elsewhere DOES NOT have the capability to receive DMR/MotoTRBO unless it is sent to Whistler for the upgrade.

I'm updating my PRO-668 ad with an added bonus for anyone seeing my ad here on Scan New England. If you mention that you saw my ad here on SNE I will include an additional brand-new (never used) Whistler Swivel Belt Clip valued at $14.95 (https://whistlergroup.com/collections/s ... 6242724806) in addition to the standard non-swivel brand-new factory belt clip that comes with the scanner. FYI the Whistler Swivel Belt Clip can be used with the Whistler WS1010, WS1040, WS1080, WS1088 and TRX-1; the Radio Shack PRO-18, PRO-404, PRO-106, PRO-649, PRO-651 and PRO-668; the GRE PSR-100, PSR-500 and PSR-800.

If you would like any further information or are interested in purchasing, please contact me by PM here on Scan New England as the email forum reply notification system does not appear to be working reliably 100% of the time. If you would like to discuss anything directly via phone, please include your telephone number in your PM.

My Craigslist Southcoast ad with pictures is still up and live: https://southcoast.craigslist.org/ele/d ... 57000.html
Also note that Whistler just released on August 1st a brand-new DSP firmware version 3.2 for this scanner (used for digital decoding/processing) and I have updated the scanner accordingly.
