Re: P25 for Cheap
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: 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.
