• 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:

They were on 472.875 MHz (Utac 6 according to the DB), however they clearly indicated it as "Utac 46", rather than Utac 6. Should Utac 6 be renamed as Utac 46 in the DB?

Not before further research is done to confirm that NJ UTAC 4-8 are in fact UTAC 44-48.

I just did that research (didn't take long), and based on what I can find they are indeed mislabeled in the RRDB. Given that the nationwide UTACs are 41-43, the natural extension of those for the NJ UTACs would be 44-48.

I'll submit the update.

I can confirm they no longer use UTAC6 but now called UTAC 46. Anything designated in the T-Band is also called 5TACXX. There are also UTACXXN and UTACXXS depending if its going to be used in the north or south regions of the state. itac channels are now called 8TAC, etc...Let me know if you need the list for updating.
