I have a strange question that has me puzzled..I know if you monitor a statewide p25 digital radio system that they work just like analog systems but all the voice traffic has to be monitored with a digital scanner instead of any scanner, so my question is this: Why if you're monitoring a DIGITAL STATEWIDE P25 TRUNKED 700/800 MHZ system with all traffic digital and no analog traffic whatsoever, Why can I still pick up the control channels of the system on an analog scanner like normal? Do the data channels transmit in analog also? Can someone elaborate on this or explain? This has me puzzled, I thought if it was digital then nothing could be heard analog wise but apparently that's not the case, Any ideas anyone?
