    Is the AMBE+2 vocoder backwards compatible to IMBE? I don't think this pertains to phase 1 vs phase 2, but the concept is a bit fuzzy to me. For instance the new Kenwood P25 equipment as well as new EFJ and the APX line from Motorola all use the AMBE vocoder correct? Can these radios talk to an older radio with IMBE only like the Astro or Astro 25 line in digital mode?
    Edit : should have specified conventional digital mode.

    Yes, the vocoders are backwards compatible.
