• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I'll change it back. With all this inclement weather lately, they might have had problems with their low-band transmitter.

possibly. i just wonder why they would want to be on low band, when they have a county TRS system, which sounds 100% better. when they were on it, every unit sounded great.

Because without multiple sites in Bville portable coverage in building is impossible .
with the terrain. And they have some very big homes.

Old school rules especially with vehicle repeaters in use.

They would need to backfill from Morris County.

Anyone know if Pill Hill got built? I think County got a hard time from locals on that too.

I think there is an antenna on a tower on Pil Hill on the County TRS system. too much NIMBY in BVille for the system to work correctly with portables, you are correct... Too Bad...

Perhaps SC system was busied out with all the additional radio traffic, Nothing more annoying than pushing PTT just to get a system busy and being put in the Que, and keep hitting PTT and being put further down.
Lots of complaints from the NJ psic system busying out, just think, every little town giving up their perfectly acceptable radio frequencies to join the system. This was by any NJ standard a tiny tiny storm and a 12 channel TDMA system gets busy, whats going to happen when we encounter another hurricane. these super systems are fine when the message absolutely positively doesn't matter but when it does you don't want to hear bonks and busy's on your console or in your car. if towns are forced to join due to politics and kickbacks at least keep all your old equipment for when the system fails.
