• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

if this has been asked before i am sorry, i did not see it.
my question is can a d-star radio receive p-25 transmissions? not encripted of course.
in my reading i see that both formats are similar, but not the same.
it would be great if they did would save me some money listening to simplex p-25 stuff in the area.
but........ i'm sure i am not that lucky.

No sir, The D-Star radios can not receive the Motorola P25 transmissions they use a different type of digital transmission the Icom's D-Star codecs.

DStar uses GMSK protocol, where as P25 uses C4FM
