Jerry, since you put this in the GRE forum, I assume you're only interested in GRE radios? Since you mention monitoring control channels, there are several utilities like UniTrunker that can do this, but most need a discriminator tap (the exception being the new PSR-600 and 500, which can read the data off the data port).

In addition, there are LTR programs that can monitor the control channel (but you won't be able to trunk) and report on them. However, some of them need a more specialized interface to work properly.

We have forum(s) devoted to these topics; please post these kinds of questions there. In addition our wiki has links to trunking utilities like UniTrunker here (anything in blue and/or underlined is a link);
