• 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:

Why are we depreciating frequencies when an Agency is in the process of transition and keeps switching back and forth between systems ? Too many contributors are quick to jump the gun and too many DB admins are too quick to make changes without confirmation.

Could still be testing, and/or possibly simulcasting.

Maybe not every single radio is installed... etc.

They may be experiencing problems with the new system, I’m guessing dead spots or coverage due to the city being sea level and the palisades blocking the west where the west orange site is located. They are still using their new radios but on the old 800 frequencies possibly temporary until the bugs are worked out. This may be a stretch but maybe they’re thinking of going to the new county system as it’s designed to cover the Hudson county area specifically.if you listen to the radios when they key up you’ll notice right after the mdc there is a short ping like sound, that’s how I kinda figure they’re still using the new radios.

The West Orange simulcast consists of 5 sites. The closest one to Hoboken is in Jersey City. But of course there is still no guarantee that they are getting adequate coverage, especially down by the river.
