This is a really good deal since the price includes the DMR and NXDN decoding licenses. Buying them individually would cost an additional $170 on top of the price of the unit; Purchased individually, the DMR license is $85 and the NXDN license is another $85 if purchased from Scanner Master.

Or $60 each if purchased from Uniden.

What are the licenses useful for beyond amateur radio?

FWIW, 436s on Amazon have been marked at $400 for a while now.

If you want to listen to systems that use encoding technologies, you'll need to have these licensed on your unit so that you can tune into them. Check RadioReference for the areas and systems you want to listen to, and they will indicate if they use DMR, NXDN, or ProVoice technologies - which would require the corresponding licenses for decoding the signals.

*Note* Decoding is not Decrypting and Encoding is not Encrypting; You'll be able to decode unencrypted signals with these technologies after licensing the features, but you will not be able to decrypt encrypted communications.
