    Interesting device that even supports high level encryption.

    They look OK, but their advertising is bull**** and false.

    Check their YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Md7K...ayer_embedded#!

    At 1:50~, they claim their "encrypted audio", "sounds like this". It's clearly just an analog scanner recording. There's no way their audio sounds like that, while encrypted.

    False advertising.

    Yeah, noticed that. Wonder how the normal P25 audio sounds.

    They're calling analog "P25 clear".

    Scary indeed.

    Might just be a language barrier but I'd be afraid of dropping any large amount of money on one of these boards considering how the website is put together.

    Based on their text descriptions too, also hard to be sure, but it sounds like they are only using AES-128 in P25 Encrypted mode. Even if they are using AES-256, for some reason I don't think it will be interoperable with Motorola's AES-256 implementation.

    From the description, it looks like they have some kind of hardware programmer device and/or it uses some kind of OTAR type method, it doesn't say whether that is just for basic programming or keyloading or what. The device is probably a serial or USB dongle and PC software, most likely.

    I finally found a price - looks like 349 pounds for an evaluation setup, probably 2 boards, that's about $550.00 U.S.
