All of the error correcting block codes used in P25 are the sort where
the codeword includes the encoded data verbatim; the code appends bits
used for error correction, but a receiver can ignore those and just pull
out the data bits.  This greatly increases the likelihood of
post-decoding bit errors, but it works fine when the SNR is good.
