• 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:

So I know the 651 can receive P25 Phase 1 systems but there is something in the specs that confuses me. Anyone know what this means?

9600bps control channel trunking systems: No
APCO 25 digital trunking systems: Yes

From what I read up on P25 digital trunking systems, isn't all control channels 9600bps?

APCO Project 25 - The RadioReference Wiki

Maybe it's just the way they have it worded. Does that mean it will not do control channel only trunking on a P25 system?
