• 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:

How do you use your Dynamic Memory?

What philosphy or structure do you use for your dynamic memory?

This is how I structure it:

Each system is a collection of counties (as groups).
Northwestern NJ is a system and has the following groups:
1 Mount Olive (my home town)
2 Western Morris County
3 Sussex County
4 Warren County
5 Eastern Morris County

These are the counties that I generally hear pretty well when I'm around town.

If I travel east, I have another system, Northeastern NJ. Same scheme with the counties.

If there is a system that I can hear all over, like the NJSP trunked system then that has it's own system.

I arrange the systems by states or regions. 0-10 New Jersey, 11-20 Pennsylvania..etc. Some overlap, so it's not exact.
I have one bank that has just about everything I can hear from my house. This I just call the "Scanning System".. if I hear an incident I will then go to the specific system/group.

Here is a wishlist item. I wish that a TRS system could be a group, not just a system. Then I could really group counties by system. Some counties will have a TRS for mutual aid (like Morris County, NJ).

As it is, I could give them the same quick key number, but then I can't close one of the systems.

I don't know all the tricks on the 996, so not sure if I'm missing something.
