I can see why they'd not do that... every system change would have the press coming back for programming modification. I see tons of what are apparently suitable STX300's for sale for reasonable prices, but I know the programming is the real obstacle here. In the unlikely event anyone has an "in" someday, I'd love to hear about it.Sorry, but only an authorized radio can be on the system. P25's are set up so that the instant an radio is put on it, it affiliates, and if its RID is not in the system's data, it is blocked, or even bricked. So to get an radio actively monitoring in trunking mode, even TX disabled, you will have to have it authorized by the System Admins. Otherwise you have to use it in P25 Conventional with TX disabled, but then you won't be able to filter traffic heard by TG etc... And you can't use it for a feed without that capability. So you will have to go to Indianapolis Department of Public Safety; Communications Division, and personally talk to administration. Good luck on that, as even the press does not have actual radios here.
Those radios Stx3000'S are on e-bay

Of course, XTS3000. I've only looked at dozens of listings on eBay Please forgive my typo.Gentlemen, it's XTS3000 not Stx3000 or STX300.
Yes, you can listen to the system receive only but the process to do so is tricky and one wrong step could result in your radio being bricked, legal troubles or worse yet, some public safety personnel's life being put into danger.
