That makes sense, even though they are in different counties. Somebody there is thinking. (Could all the fiscal issues actually be forcing a move away from home rule and absolute boundaries to logic and sense?)

I could not agree with that statement more; home rule is the worst thing that ever happened to New Jersey. Our arbitrary lines drawn in the mud (as I like to put it) need to dissolve and we need to start doing what's feasible.

Not to burst anyone's bubble here, but First off Dunellen is in Middlesex county and Second per a very, very reliable source Somerset County is not and will never dispatch Dunellen for anything other than sending ALS or BLS units to them.

I guarantee it will be like all the other in-county users on the east end - they are paying the county for system usage & are self-dispatching.

LOL. My reality bubble remains intact. I almost married a girl from Possumtown (a long and sordid saga from decades ago), so I spent a good deal of time in Middlesex and Somerset Counties, indeed, I grew up in NJ. That "never" thing happens a lot. But the other interesting thing is that the loss of certain revenue sources since 2008 has really put up a fight against those nevers. Some NJ nevers I've seen have been the expansion of the air medical program, the fall of first aid squads in many areas to hospital-based BLS contracts, automatic mutual aid out-of-town responses, cooperative procurement in DPWs, regionalization, and who knows? Maybe this? Just saying. Money stomps on pride every time.

You're probably right, though.

Either way, I hope they get their issues squared away. Every responder needs safe and reliable communications.

I have a friend who is a 911 dispatcher for the county and when he and the rest of the people working there saw what radio reference posted they were baffled and said that wouldn't happen and isn't going to happen.

Another reason to believe that this won't happen is because Dunellen would have to build their own trunking sites in the town because its to far from the somerset county trunking sites creating dead spots in the town. To solve this problem and pay the price they would need for the equipment and service would be way to much to be even worth it.

I think the "tests" that whoever heard were test for something else and not dunellen due to the fact somerset is still tinkering with their new system.

There's no such thing as PD region 12.

Dunellen sits directly below Green Brook, and the Johnson Drive site should cover that area quite well. Dunellen already has the proper radios to utilize the system if it actually happens.

I have 2 friends that dispatch there as well, so I will reach out to them for some 'off the record' clarification..

Alright then I'm mistaken about that then, but I am almost positive it will not happen.

Piscataway still dispatches Dunellen PD. Fire still operates on 158.82 yet communicate with Piscataway HQ via the Dunellen PD P25 channel. Rescue is encrypted on the Piscataway trunk. So is DPW.

I do believe that there is a closer site while not as high as JDrive, the site is on the Greenbrook - Dunellen border. This site was RX only but was converted to TX RX.

This site back fills the shadow created by the bearing change of the mountain ridge.

Dunellen PD is on the Somerset County system, only they are not using County PSAP. That is next.

That site over there must not be very high, then. I always try to look for some kind of antennas or anything over around the border area but never really see anything. But there's plenty of woods back there, so I could miss it. Unless It's located at the Greenbrook PD HQ?

Also, any word on Dunellen switching dispatch over to Somerset County? Heard about it in the other Dunellen thread. I'd figure Rescue and DPW would follow them to Somerset since those two are on the PWay trunk.
