yes, I know that.There are no settings in the PSR-500 to do what you want. The PSR-500 will always skip over encrypted transmissions if the first radio to grab the frequency is encrypted. This is true even if the other users on the talkgroup are not encrypted.
does anyone here 'edit' the source code for the psr-500?
I would think there has to be. Someone knows how to delete that line of code in the source code.
The PSR-500 will skip any transmission when it can determine that the transmission is encrypted. For Mot 3600 systems, it uses the status bits to make that determination.
There is no way to make the PSR-500 "unmute" on such transmissions, if it determines that it's encrypted.
Neat!The PSR-800 will do what you want and even has various different options for ENC...
TONE (sound a tone to let you know an encrypted talkgroup is active - user selectable level for the tone as well)
NOISE (hear the encryption noise)
Mike,Washtenaw is on a P25 trunked system (MPSCS), not a Motorola 3600 System. It's the control channel type that will determine if you hear the encrypted talkgroup or not...
Only if it is encrypted all the time. If one side of the comm is in the clear, I want to be able to hear it. The busy signal or silence is OK for encrypted on MPSCS using the 800(although I'd still like to hear something other than silence or a telephone busy signal).I would think if you took a poll, a very high percentage would prefer it that way.
