Default What kind of scanner would decode this signal?

Apparently RS Pro-97 only produces this sound. Link for video below:

From what I hear, there are no scanners that can decode DMR right? Thanks.

I just did a quick study on DMR and looks like there are scanners that decide such signals. So there's some hope!

I have both Uniden BCD436 and Whistler TX-1 and they both do a good job of DMR you may want to look and see what else is on in your area there are somethings one does better than the other but in the end both will receive this signal.

I was about 10 ft far when I took this photo. The radio brand was Hytera and LCD had blue color when receiving audio. It didn't sound anything like normal radio communications. Almost sounded like AM radio with no crisp breaks.

Here's the news piece from almost 4 years ago that describes about the help of Chinese government to Nepal Police.

I wonder if this indeed was police comm. I would need a new scanner now, wouldn't I? Any recommendations on one? Thanks.

I checked the prices and they'rebeyond my reach. Any cheaper ones? Thanks.

Try DSD+ for a cheaper option:

You should be using DSD+ anyway to verify that the signals aren't encrypted. Many Hytera users in Europe and Asia turn on the encryption.

It looks like either a DMR or TETRA radio, I would try DSD+

The antenna included with SDR sticks are crap. You will want to replace with a better antenna designed for the frequency range being used.
