After almost a year of research and help from other. I finally ordered a p25 radio for under 60 on eBay! I’m so excited. I know I’ve been a pain in the butt but thank you guys on your time and support for helping me learn.
The cost doesnt stop there, you need to purchase the CPS and cable to program it. Will that radio work for what you want to monitor? Scanner is a much easier way to go. I too am curious as to what hardware you purchased.
