Default State Medevac Question

Hi Guys,

Been listening to the NJ State Medevac feed for a couple of weeks now. Question is, all I heve been hearing is the south district. Have not heard Northstar or Atlantic Air 3 or any requests for the north half of the state. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Not to second-guess your radio programming but make sure you have the talkgroup ID programmed correctly. Northstar's talkgroup ID is 26832. I noticed the same thing myself recently and when I did hear them on the air they usually declined due to weather.

This is an assumption (and you know what they say when you assume ) but I've always noticed that Southstar is busier and I think it's because south Jersey is more rural than the central and northern sections of the state.

Just my thoughts....

JMP,
Thanks for the response. I was listening on Broadcastify over the internet, so the talkgroup should be correct. The description says that the broadcast is statewide REMS , so I should get the north and south parts of the state. Will keep listening, and see what happens I guess.

Thanks,
Mike

883, you mention that in general SouthSTAR was more active than NorthSTAR. Expanding on that assumption a bit...could the lesser activity that NorthSTAR had in comparison have been cut even more by the introduction of all of the hospital based MedEvacs in NorthSTAR's territory (Hackensack 1, Atlantic Air 1 and 3, and MonOc1)?

the answer - there needs to be a state police radio turned on in the area that you are listening in to auto- affiliate with the site. in my instance, i live in monmouth county. i usually only here the south medevacs.
this is a by-product of motorolas smartnet or smartzone. it conserves the system space if there is no need for a radio to hear the traffic. at least this is what i've been told. i'm not the most trunking literate person on the board.

I am the Broadcastify feed provider for the New Jersey Statewide Medevac feed. I confirmed that the Northstar/North Jersey Talk Group(26832) is programmed in the scanner. Both the Northstar (REMCS Refers to Troop B) and Southstar (26800, and also called Troop C) Talkgroups have priority over all other monitored talk groups listed on the feed.

With the Superbowl in NJ, the Statewide EMS Task Force talkgroups have been very busy, but you should have still heard from the northern Medevac's. I do listen to this feed on a near daily basis and have heard REMCS talking with aircraft in the northern part of the state and have not noticed any issue myself. As KC2zZe points out, the South Talkgroup is much busier in general than the North.

Thanks for listening to my feed!

Hello RSB,

First off, thanks for hosting the feed. I am both a retired LEO and a pilot and have been involved in airbourne LE. I have great interest in the medevac programs and enjoy listening to the statewide feed. Thanks again for the response and checking the status of the feeds.
