Fair enough.
You know I wouldn't either.
I did not post anything that breaks any laws.
You will find nothing posted by me here that is.
The fact that you responded with a post saying I did is not correct.
It absolutely proves one thing, you have no idea what it does do. however with just bit of research you would know what it does and it is perfectly legal.
Sorry to disappoint but Its just easier to let the majority fall flat when given one scrap of information to look over.
The only thing you did was publicly prove you have no idea, and thanks for that its exactly what I expected.

You're correct that I'm not a radio techie and glad you feel proud if you pulled one over on me. I was assuming that the link you provided was for software to decode encrypted police channels, given that you posted it on a thread regarding police scanner codes along with the words "I'd rather be listening".

So, given that decoding encrypted communications is illegal, are you saying that it is legal for you or I to decrypt encoded communication we are not authorized to listen to?

So.... after 2 + 1/2 years, I'm still wondering if anyone has the capability to monitor Police communications since they went digital and encrypted (unless you are an insider with the appropriate hardware and encryption keys).

Don't think you will get much info here.
