It is possible for monitor P25 for cheap using your computer.
Buy one of these RTL-SDR radio receivers for $25 that is USB: https://www.rtl-sdr.com/rtl-sdr-quick-start-guide/
Download the free SDRSharp sofware: https://www.rtl-sdr.com/tag/sdrsharp/
Add this crude scanner plug-in to that software: http://www.freqmgrsuite.com/
Pipe the audio through the free DSD+ decoding software: https://www.dsdplus.com/
This kludge is finicky and slow, but it's not $600 like a Uniden SDS-100. :-) It works for my semi-rural area where there are only three P25 public service frequencies and one DMR ham repeater to monitor. My 246 handles the rest like champ.
