    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.

Hello,

I asked a question earlier on here and I am not getting an answer. Since Ky in plagued with NXDN signals popping up everywhere, I want to future proof my next scanner purchase.

I have a rather simple question:

Does an P25 scanner stop on an NXDN signal while scanning?

It depends on what scanner you have. The BCD396T/996T and older Unidens will because you can't set them to digital only. To receive P25 you have to set it to CSQ and it will stop on any signal that opens the squelch regardless of mode. As fas as I know the XTs can be set to digital only and will only unsquelch on a valid P25 signal. I have never used a RS/GRE digital scanner so I don't know how they work.

Thank you for the reply.

That is what I was looking for! I was looking at the PSR-800 for the built in disc. out and was going to run it through DSD. I didn't want to buy a scanner and have to leave it sit on one station to decode.

Since I will be able to decode on the fly and scan conventional and digital channels at the same time and have the decoder with the ability to actually scan, it's a win!

Thanks again very much!
