From The RadioReference Wiki
TETRA is an acronym for TErrestrial Trunked RAdio. Tetra is an open voice standard developed by the European Telecom Standards Institute (ETSI) and is in use primarally overseas and in Europe. It uses a 4-slot TDMA channel. Tetra systems use the TETRA Control Channel.
TETRA uses by default air interface strong encryption and, as a result, there is no scanner available that can monitor TETRA Voice.
