DMR 40 bit encryption

Since the Enhanced Privacy 40 bit encryption in any XPR 4550,5550 is hackable , does using RAS add any extra layer of security from eavesdropping ?

Morning Max, What you also need with that big RF relay is a Ramsey RFS1 kit or similar. This would trigger your large relay to switch between transmit and receive without having to use logic from the MCS2000 If you were to only use the MCS2000 for activation of the relay you would have to insert a ...

I'll use a logic line.
I'm think of using my desk mic RMN5068A
I thought of using the monitor button ( left ) to activate the relay ,then use the PTT ( right ) to TX
This way there is no delay.
