  1. Hey so I have 2 HD1 GPS units with the same codeplug and encryption keys one radio set to a specific frequency color code and tallgroup with encryption enabled the other radio set to the same frequency and color code but with promiscuous mode on and no encryption. The radio without encryption enabled is able to hear the transmission from the one with encryption enabled. This leads me to believe the encryption is not working as intended or at all.

    1. So upon further investigation it’s only the enhanced encryption that does not work
      The basic encryption is doing its job which leads me to believe that it may be a firmware issue. Both radios are on the most recent firmware 1.6.1-gps
