Default Ocean County Fire Dispatch

Did Ocean County make a change to their dispatch? I noticed that 508.1875 had been a little quiet and then my local FD sirens went off without me hearing anything being dispatched. I checked my scanners and both seem to be working without issue. So my only conclusion is either I am getting a very weak signal (which I live about 300 yards from their Tuckerton tower) or they switched frequencies.

I heard Ocean County dispatch a squad into Lacy Township about 20 minutes ago for a medical emergency on that channel. If you are still having problems I would check the antenna, and various settings in case something happened to them.

I am getting EMS dispatch on 155.205 which I am hearing traffic on with no problems. I know some squads use the FD dispatch as well but I haven't heard anything on there at all. I have two scanners using different antennas and neither are picking it up. I wonder if the Tuckerton tower is having an issue. I will have to lower my squelch after work and see if I pick anything up in the distance.

I am actually located near Cookstown so I would be primarily receiving from the New Egypt tower. I was just trying to help. The Tuckerton tower may be down or having issues as you said. It was on the UHF Fire Dispatch channel that I heard the dispatch. Which has me leaning towards the tower site being the issue.

I'm not learned enough to know how a system works with multiple towers, but if there is a problem with the Tuckerton tower, I would think you would be getting it off of the Barnegat Tower, which has a power output of 90 watts and a maximum ERP of 200 watts.
