Is there a way to have the radio unmute on an encrypted transmission?

This is the second time you asked about having a radio unmute on encrypted transmissions. Commercial gear is made to not unmute unless it has the proper key. If you really must hear garbled nonsense, buy a scanner.

With Astro radios (I know this works at least with Astro Sabers/XTS3000) you can hit the "monitor" button if you really want to hear the gobledygook.

You can also hear the muted MDC blasts that way too (disables DOS muting)...

It works on the ASTRO25 line as well but I don't know why anyone would want to hear that garbage.

That so-called garbage can be extremely useful. It can alert a person that law enforcement is in the vicinity and operating on an encrypted special ops channel. By monitoring the output frequencies of law enforcement encrypted radio transmissions, using attenuation, and having an antenna tuned to only receive nearby frequencies a person can be aware of when law enforcement is operating within 1/16 of a mile of the receiver. For me that garbage is gold.

Why? Are you a criminal? This board does not extend any sort of welcome to anyone involved in victimizing others/criminal activity.
