Hi Ubbe - just to clarify, a BDCx36HP does decode the uplink side of a half-duplex DMR system (ie the signal from a portable/mobile sending to the base station), as well as the base station transmissions. DSD+ with a tapped scanner/dongle will do the same. But this is different to a DMR transceiver which does not decode the uplink side of the system.I beleive it will only decode basestation transmissions or a mobile/portable in simplex transmission, not a mobile/portable that transmits to a DMR system.
It started working a little. I can hear the first word that I speak but then it stops.Go to MENU > Srch/CloCal Opt > Digital Wait time set to anything between 0 and 400ms, Digital Threshold set to Manual, Digital Threshold Level set to 5.
Manually tune to the frequency that your XPR is transmitting on.
Check that modulation = FM.
Does that work?
Yes, if the programming says it's encrypted, then it probably is then ! That's pretty much as conclusive as you can get. Other than the now discontinued ADCR25, you won't find a scanner and/or software that decodes encryption.In the CPS software it shows security set to basic.
I guess that is encrypted?
It depends who set it up, and how. In most CPS setups, you have the ability to switch it on/off per channel, and set different parameters per channel (such as Key ID etc).Does that encryption apply to all channels programmed in the radio or can it be turned off for certain ones?
Thanks, I did not know that GMRS could not be digital. Seems kind of strange but rules are rules . I admit I was very confused on this. I read everything was going digital which is another reason I bought the xpr 7550 but apparently they were just talking about the ham frequencies and not the GMRS. Its still good that I got it or it wouldnt have worked for the properties I wanted it for. I just got lucky on that though.Encryption is only possible if you're broadcasting in a digital mode (DMR, P25, etc.), which are not allowed on GMRS frequencies.
Not sure but he may have been referring to CPS not giving an option to encrypt analog channels. Instead it has an option to scramble. I assume thats what he meant.Say Huh what now? Encryption is very possible on ANY mode. It just sounds horrible on non digital systems.
Sounds like you are making progress, but not quite there. Try putting some distance between transceiver and your scanner.... you might be over loading the front end.Ok...the encryption is definitely off now. Im not sure it was ever really on but it is set to none now.
I have the scanner programmed with the frequency used on the property and the band is FM at 12.5 KHz
Also, have the digital wait time on zero and the threshold to manual and the threshold level on 5.
results: scanner lights up and sometimes I will hear a word or static and then it stops,
The display will show DMR at botton right of screen.
It flashes slot 2 beside the DMR.
