If you want to hear what it's like in SA, here is an audio feed to them: https://m.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/21928 They have a P25 system. It sounds awful compared to our analog system. Have a listen. In marginal areas they break up in a very inaudible way, whereas with analogue, we've been able ...
I have seen, felt, and even played with the radios in question. They are not going to replace the current radios we have, they are for specialist and complex firefighting operations in specific circumstances. That is all I am willing to talk about on a public forum.

I certainly can't see the 6AR/IP net going down any time soon, even for CFRS. It's a low tech network - it works, it's more reliable than most digital services/systems. CFRS and VFRS may switch to other options for routine messages and status updates, but at the end of the day, most of the "interest...

Once CHIRP supports it, I'll be picking one up. Is there any way to lock out the transmit function on this? I tend to shy away from questionably legal radios unless I can either find a way to lock out the VFO or disable/desolder the TX amp IC.

Unless there is a tactical requirement for Digital + Encryption, I feel a lot safer using analogue radios - they work, and they have better fringe coverage than digital ever will.

Unless you were decoding FSK based data like rtty, or stuff like POCSAG, you would need to use the discriminator output on your scanner to get the best chances of decoding anything. I only really know of fldigi, minimodem, and Digital Radio Mondiale software.

I found a cheap baofeng uv-5r would that be okay ? I would say that it's not advised to own one from a legal standpoint without a license. But many, many people DO own them without a license, and not much happens to them enforcement wise if they just use them as receivers with the transmit capabili...
Kinda crummy they make you pay for these options:
Better off getting a hackRF and a raspberry pi and making a rugged receiver out of that.MotoTRBO Capacity + and Connect +**
DMR Tier III**
NXDN 4800 and 9600**
