The PSR-800 with the latest firmware is supposed to be capable of decoding P-25 Phase II digital transmissions. Phase II is a newer type of digital format which provides more capacity than Phase I using the same set of frequencies. There's nothing wrong with scanner manufacturers building equipment to monitor Phase II; it's just a matter of adapting to the technology.
Encryption is different. Encryption is the deliberate scrambling of a signal to prevent unauthorized users from listening. It's illegal to build or use equipment that decodes an encrypted transmission unless the person using the equipment is an authorized user on the system.
