I am looking at the ICOM IC-R1500 and am wondering if it is strictly conventional scanning or will it do trunking? The brochure does not mention any trunking. Also is it digital capable?


Looking further I see the 2500 model receives digital, but again no mention of trunking...


Thanks...

Icom does not make a trunking capable receiver and that is why the brochures do not
mention trunking. Not sure but I think the 2500 you mentioned is the only one to do
P25 digital - someone correct me if I am wrong on that.

I don't believe that either the 1500 or 2500 is capable of trunking without an external app, and I don't believe the P25 option would enable digital trunking (just conventional P25 decoding). However, for analog trunking, there is this software...
