ALWAYS BE PREPARED
The WS1055 comes with a ton of features such as object-oriented scanning, Skywarn functions, V-scanner capability, and more but to someone that isn’t familiar with these advanced options, it might sound a bit confusing. In short, this model does everything a police scanner can and should do wonderfully. It can quickly find nearby frequencies and store up to 1800 of them. It also allows you to jump to already found transmissions making using it a breeze. However, there are also advanced features that will most likely appeal to radio enthusiasts. Let’s start with the design and built quality of this Whistler scanner and then move onto the heavy stuff…
Since this is one of the better high-end desktop police scanners, it features much better build quality than a lot of its cheaper competitors. Even though desktop variants are exposed to a lot less wear and tear than their handheld counterparts, this scanner can keep functioning for a long time without any malfunctions. The reception is also extremely clear, even at long range, which is something that you should always look for in a desktop scanner since you won’t be able to move closer to transmission sources. The dedicated weather button helps ensure that this is a great scanner if you live in an area that frequently sees adverse weather conditions.
While older police scanner models have rigid memory banks, the Whistler WS1040 uses free-form memory which is more dynamic and efficient. Instead of frequencies, the device scans “objects” which can include channels, talk groups, service searches, spectrum sweeps, and more. You can then create up to 20 Scan Lists where you can add these objects to for easy access later. Scan Lists are the core of the WS1040, and they can be named, organized, and structured in any way you want. As such, even though the Whistler is advertised to be able to store 1800 frequencies, it actually has space for about 38,000 scannable objects.
