Operation of a radio in the US under a Ham Radio part 97 license requires all transmissions to be unencrypted. Use of ‘selective’ signalling (such as pl-codes used on FRS radios) to limit cross station interference is allowed, however the basic transmission is still unencrypted. The use standard published modulation and coding is generally allowed.
My use case is for operation within frequencies and power as allowed by part 97.
Recent version of the software might be prohibited.
My request would be for a version that does not include any encryption.
