GRE COM PSR-600 scanning receiver The PSR-600 is manufactured by GRE in China. The PSR-600 is very similar to the handheld version of the PSR-500 and Pro-197. It uses the same radio control software and scanner cables.
|Frequency (MHz)||Step Size Value|
|470-512 Original||12.5 kHz|
|470-512 CPU V-1.7||6.25 kHz|
- Object oriented memory management. See the Object Oriented Scanning Described article for more information
- Built in discriminator data output in simple ASCII output using the PC/IF port
- Full duplex support and USB connection using the GRE 30-3290 (RS #20-047) USB Scanner Data Manager Cable.
- Object programmable LED; eight factory default colors to any color / brilliance you want by having direct access to the R-G-B drive values (including flash) to assign to talkgroups, frequencies, agencies, etc.
- LATCH option; the color of the last received object stays on until reset.
- Motorola Smartzone systems
- Scanner option to look for the site with the best received CC decode rate.
(Not the same as RSSI on the Motorola rigs, but similar in operation.)
- Favorites Scan List; create a scan list tailored to your favorite object setiings.
One button operation to get to this set.
- Spectrum Sweeper Near field frequency capture
- Triple conversion
- Virtual Scanner Memory Management system; One copy of working memory can hold up to 1800 objects, meaning any combination of talkgroups, conventional channels, and trunking systems. Each V-Scanner folder holds one copy of working memory. So, 21 * 1800 = about 37,800 objects altogether can be stored in the V-Scanner storage system.
