• 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:

I of course realize if it could it would not trunk but would a DMR radio receive Fleetnet transmissions ? they claim to do Tier two which I assume is just another word for Motorola II so am considering one as a cheap hand held scanner as well as Amateur radio use ?.

In case it's not clear, DMR and DMR Tier two have nothing in common with P25 CAI Motorola Type II trunking systems. No connections whatsoever. As noted, the only Fleetnet related thing you can do with a DMR radio is listen to analog traffic in conventional mode (no trunk tracking)

Not really important it trunk tracks just its ability to receive digital transmissions...thought I would just plug in all 5 repeaters and wing it for what I was hearing...

Also I believe that OPP are in fact not true P25 but Motorola type II smart Zone.

Does this radio you are trying to use to listen to P25 do P25? the specs should be available via a Google search, if it only does DMR and maybe analog then it will not decode P25 regardless of what generation of P25.

DMR and P25 are different.

I apologize if I'm stating the obvious, but the only thing you'll be able to hear with a DMR radio are DMR signals.

If you have a D-Star radio, all you will be able to hear are D-Star signals. A P25 radio will only hear P25 signals, a System Fusion radio will only hear System Fusion signals and so on. They're all separate digital modes.

As mentioned, most digital radios support analog as well as digital, so they can copy analog signals from each other. And of course, there are scanners capable of picking up various digital modes.
