What is the expected behavior of the BCD536HP when it encounters encrypted P25 traffic?

Does it mute the audio but remain on the channel for the duration of the transmission, or does it skip the channel altogther and resume scanning?

Thanks!

Generally, it "skips" over encrypted channels/talkgroups although yo might hear a brief digital burst sometimes. The exception is encrypted P25 Phase 2 -- the radio will stop on it and you'll hear "gibberish".

If it is phase 1 traffic it just mutes and/or ignores and keeps scanning.

If it is phase 2 traffic it stays there and you hear encrypted scrambled signal, with a TGID and radio ID.
