• 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 went to my grandfather's today in Lincoln Park in morris county and I gave him a scanner for his birthday. He cant get over it, I programmed all the local stuff (county sheriff, fire, police, EMS). Do you know of any other things to monitor in his area (no NJSP stuff since it doesnt trunk.)

FYI, Morris County is now using a SmartZone 4.1 mixed mode trunking system. So that scanner will not be able to monitor the county.

What about surrounding towns? Maybe the control tower at the Lincoln Park airport? Also he will not be able to monitor Montville PD as they are digital now.

When I programmed it this weekend I was still able to here sherrif comms though. Maybey only certain departments use it. Thanks for the info though, I forgot all about the airpoirt! I'll have to put it in next time I go up there.

not sure what you heard on sheriff comm but they are using the new digital trunked system. Sheriff and Park PD are both cut over.

If the reception is decent enough, I'd also program in the locals around Routes 46 & 23. Let him listen in on the action for the many traffic accidents that happen on those two highways.

Off the top of my head, Wayne & Fairfield would both be good. Both departments probably respond to the 3 way split 23/46/80. Parts of Wayne also stay pretty busy during heavy rains from flooding.

I'm just guessing, but the fish & game department may have a few folks up that way checking in on the many reservoirs on 23 in West Milford and the one on 46 in Parsippany.

Hope this gave you a few ideas.

Have a great day!
