Your relatively close to me, here in Green Knoll section of Bridgewater. The difference is your elevation is a great location. Only if I could get Union County!

My elevation is only about 200 feet above sea level.. but the Watchung site for the NJ ICS is line of sight for me. Do you get any NJ ICS sites from you at all? You know there is a site in Martinsville supposedly but no one can receive it...

My house (Foothill Rd) is approximately 262' above sea level (ASL). Directly to the east south of Washington Valley Rd is 308' ASL. Washington Valley Rd is 260' (ASL). Mountains north of Washington Valley Rd is 416' ASL. That's my obstruction for Union County.

NJCIS, receive Med Central - NJ DOT Central Maintenance - NJTP Maintenance. Pulling off the Hunderdon County site. Martinsville site negative. Around a year ago or so, before they renamed Martinsville site, I was pulling Med Central directly. Since than nothing from that site.

I appreciate your input, you been a big help over the last few years.

Glad I could help. Yes I see the mountains are obstructing your line of sight to Union County site which is Mountainside and Watchung. I still cannot receive West Orange because of obstructions.

Back in the day I lived in Fanwood. The days of analog scanning. Limited reception to Fanwood, Scotch Plains, Mountainside, County PD, Clark and Plainfield. Currently, when I visit old friends in the neighborhood I take the 436HP and amazed! (NJICS)

I take my 436 all over the state and into New York City and it works well. Except for the fact that I can't see the LCD anymore which is a major hassle. The light faded and the LCD is not visible in the cold.

You really have to send it back to Uniden. I sent my original 436 back for LEDs and Time function
They changed the display, LEDs and fixed the time. Total turn around was under three weeks. Everything covered under warranty.
