When you say intermittent how much of a gap is it? I sat listening to them all morning and it was about 1100 that I heard one transmission only on the PSR800 in TDMA mode. I listened for 20 minutes after that and nothing else.

P.S. The audio quality was good

Default what does this mean

Can someone tell me what "State Police talkgroups are simulcast from the 800 MHz system" means?

It means that the NJSP talkgroups on the 700 system are really just patches from the 800 system.

I am running PSIC with a pro197 an one computer with unitrunker and Edison's system with a pro2006 on another computer.I know that 65536 is not a good talkgroup any insight on what this could be and why it shows on both systems also the time stamp for the last hit was 06:51 for both systems like the radio was transmitting on both at same time.
Just curious since you have an APX7000 can you decode X2-TDMA and Phase II without affiliating using the hidden talkgroup method. I have an APX7000 too and I was wondering since I can use the radio for Type II system mixed mode and Phase I. Just wondering about X2-TDMA and Phase II. Thanks

Default PSIC Union Co Simulcast Site 7 question...

If anyone is familiar with monitoring the Union County Simulcast, can you advise if I should be receiving any of the TDMA simulcast talkgroups of the State Police? I just put a PSR 800 into service, and am only receiving all the non TDMA TGs I received on the PSR 500; with a couple of exceptions; namely Newark FD and PIP PD, which I have received.

Not sure if I programmed the site wrong or if the site is set up not to receive all the TGs; as I understand not all sites carry all TGs.

I use this site being a Union County resident.

Thanks for any input.

Default Union County

I live in Union County near the tower location in Mountainside. As far as the NJSP talk groups I only pick up the talk groups that are not TDMA on my PSR 800. I do pick up the Somerset County, PIP, & Newark FD talkgroups that are TDMA x2. Somerset County and PIP come in loud and clear, but since Newark FD is being simulcast from their VHF frequency the quality is not great. I suspect when Newark FD switches over to PSIC 100% that situation will clear up.

Just to clarify, the system is Phase II TDMA, not X2-TDMA.

The poor NFD audio is a result of analog to digital simulcast. Also remember, not all talkgroups are used on all sites.

Try 3329, which is 53264 divided by 16. That's the pattern the 700 talkgroups have been following, divide the 800 TGID by 16 to get the 700 TGID.

Are those patches up 24/7, or do they just come and go?

Seem to come and go, at least on Site 101. B2 04 seems to be up most of the time, but B2 05 pops in from time to time and then goes away again. Someone mentioned Turnpike seemed to show up for a short bit a little while back. I think someone had previously surmised that specific radios affiliating to the 800 (or 700?) system could trigger the simulcast to begin/end to support that TG being on both systems.

The only patched/nonpatched TGs, in use consistently on site 103 are StateComm3 North and StateComm5 Central. The majority of traffic (appears to be) Troopers assingned to post Huricane Sandy security.

Testing on 4137 yesterday and today. One unit id's as chief 40 something. 1 guy was in Livingston and another was in Robbinsvile. Sounds like there are about 4 or 5 people testing.
