    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:

Hello,

I checked my notes and threads before posting but does anyone know especially the Somerset County listeners what Station 33 Greenbrook Twp uses these days for " Fireground Ops " does it get messy when North Plainfield and Union County agencies come in to assist where numerous other frequencies may come into play, thanks in advance for your help on this.

I was wondering this too...Last week they had a second alarm (plus because of a scratch) and I was monitoring closely. The best answer I can give you is it does not appear they use a fireground (and this was one of their larger incidents in the past year or so).

I heard a lot of Green Brook fireground communications on Fire Region 3. I think this was tolerated because fire region 3 is scarcely used by other agencies. Green Brook shares region 3 with North Plainfield, Watchung, and Warren all of whom operate on UHF conventional. So fire ground communications (which there was not many) were not inferring with any other agency.

They are supposed to use either OPS 3 (trunking) or TAC 3 conventional. I was listening closely to OPS 3 and I did not hear anything. I was too far away to hear any simplex traffic on the conventional TAC 3, which I would have thought would have made the logical sense for fire ground due to most of the 2nd alarm companies not having trunking radios, but again I heard them primarily using Region 3.

Hope this helps.
