Radio Shack PRO-668 DIGITAL Scanner 
UPGRADED 
to a
WHISTLER WS-1080 with DMR 
EXTRAS
Looks very good with minor cosmetic wear and works great. 
The PRO-668 digital scanner was made by GRE (Grecom) for Radio Shack before they both went out of business. It probably was the finest and most modern scanner that Radio Shack ever offered. Whistler took over the GRE products and kept upgrading them and eventually offered a $69.95 plus shipping option to owners of similar scanners to their WS1080 to bring them up to current standards including DMR. Their web site offer free upgrades to the frequency library as well as scanner upgrades using the EZ-SCAN software available on their website: https://whistlergroup.com/pages/legacy-downloads
The included rubber duck antenna is a poor performer so we have included an outstanding mini telescopic antenna that is great on 700 / 800 MHz.
Also included is the PRO-668 scanner, original PRO-668 instruction manual, the original Radio Shack packaging box, the Whistler deluxe protective case, a USB cable, a cigarette lighter power supply, 4 new AA alkaline batteries and a documentation package.
