Thank you for the idea. The short answer is that there is absolutely no support for decryption of P25 in the P25RX right now. This is something that I have not even considered at all up to this point. The MCU in the P25RX does not contain AES crypto in hardware, but there is a foot-print compatible version that does have AES-256/128 support in hardware. That would probably add $10 to final pricing. There may still be enough cycles left to do it in software, but I really can't say for sure at this point. The current P25RX firmware image is protected by AES-256, ( I already have the code for AES in there). I don't know anything about ADP other than a little bit I just read from a quick search. I also have not looked at the details of how encryption is implemented in P25. That doesn't mean the idea is completely out of the question for some kind of future work / collaboration.Apologies if I missed it but the ability to support ADP and AES encryption for those of us with keys would be amazing. We could set these up as auxiliary receivers and not have to spend thousands on radios that will never transmit.
Ok, thanks for this - I didn't notice the special promo price until after you mentioned it. That really makes it attractive! I got a similar deal on an AirSpy SDR a while back.@Mike_G_D The Unications are great and worth it. Finding the band you need might be tricky and you'll have to look around. I've had mine for over a month now. I can't wait for the newer firmware for more scanner function.
Learning Linux isn't hard; you don't have to know every single thing but knowing how setup for OP25 also is also worth it (only if RTL-SDR were better), it just takes time. I'm getting my receiver Monday and will look at it as soon as I get home from work.
If you can manage to get the P25RX before the 15th for the discount, do it. I think it'll be worth it.
Mike, since I did not specify 'ends on 6/15 or until out-of-stock', I will extend the promo pricing at least a couple more days once they are back in stock.I just went to purchase and see it is out of stock. I'd like to use the promo code to get the reduced price but I can't seem to order. Is there a way to do this or do I have to wait and miss the promo (ends tomorrow)?
