    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.

Not much to hear on MC as most is encrypted. More to hear on ICS. Anyway, I have a TRX-2 (well sort of, out for repair). What info do you need?

I just bought a WS1098 for my car and my experience so far on NJICS and NJSP 800 has been piss poor at best.

My suggestion is get rid of it in favor of a 536 or SDS200. I knew I was going to have issues on those systems going in, but I need a remote head and my major focus is my counties VHF/UHF. I did not anticipate it was going to be as bad as it is on 700 above.

I'm running the TRX-1 variant, the converted RS 668. I'm also having problems on the Monmouth TRS and I DM'd JMR about it. In the defense of the radio I have to say when I had the NJICS system in it, that system worked. Also on DMR the radio works exceptionally well and for that reason alone I would keep the radio!

A few weeks back the Micro SD card became corrupted and I lost all the info. I read that installing a smaller capacity SD card improves the radio's performance and that seems to be the case. I'm presently running only the Monmouth TRS and some DMR and it does work. A question back to you guys- I thought I read a post somewhere which I can't find now a better way to enter the NJICS without entering every individual site? Since I travel around several different counties (Monmouth, Ocean, Middlesex, Somerset & Morris) programing all those individual sites is a pain.

So here's the update! I got Convention AND Monmouth County TRS working. I have to throw the SD card back on EZ Scan and set it up for NJ ICS. Once I get that working, I am golden!.

@RBFD415. There is an Import function in the EZSCAN software that lets you import trunked systems from radioreference. I did that and then locked out all that i didnt want.

Whistler support wants me to send my 1098 in, they think I have a "Band Issue".

On my drive to South Jersey this past weekend, both Mercer and Burlington County systems performed flawlessly. NJSP and NJICS were both horrible, so I have to agree with their assessment. Hopefully I will have better luck when it comes back.

My TRX-2 installed mobile works well on the NJSP 800 system and on non-TDMA talk groups of the NJICS system. Camden county works surprisingly well for a TDMA system. Gloucester county is absolutely horrible. Burlington county has always been good, smartzone...yay !

Sure wish that SDS200 had a remote head.
