I don't think anyone is touching encryption.

Ah yes... I misspoke myself. Should have realized that a software package would do what I'm looking for.

Now if we could find software to decrypt... or is there?

I believe that any SDR will do trunking of frequencies that are in it's range. It's not a matter of the SDR, but the software used with the SDR... SDRTrunk, Unitrunker, Trunk88, etc.

The agency in question had one person screaming for a while on the Internet. Now none. But, thanks for the suggestion.

SDRAngel will decode P25 natively. It does not trunk though.

Sadly, the 246 cannot monitor P25. You need a digital scanner.

It is possible for monitor P25 for cheap using your computer.

Buy one of these RTL-SDR radio receivers for $25 that is USB:

Download the free SDRSharp sofware:

Add this crude scanner plug-in to that software:

Pipe the audio through the free DSD+ decoding software:

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.
