DPS has found that APCO25 has not nearly the range of analog, dispite what Motorola has told them.
The other trouble is that APCO25 or IMBE as it really is, will not go thru a lot of older repeaters that use phase modulation in place of true FM.
The other real issue is that although the military can do 136 MHz to 174 MHz, none of the AN/xRC radios can do IMBE.
For the actual files on IMBE, what P25 is based on, clock here.
Note: you must be a qualified engineer working in the telecomm or communications industry to get the prototype boards.
Just about every ham on the planet has tried to get the eval' chips, so the company has gotten tight on policy as of late, but the web based stuff is still free.
