    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:

NJICS StateCom 3N is active (TG 1761) as monitored from Cape May County for this year's drill.

TRENTON – New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) officials, in partnership with the New Jersey State Police (NJSP), the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) and the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA), announced that it will be conducting the annual emergency evacuation exercise June 6 to practice and refine a response in the event of a major hurricane.
No roads will be closed during the drill.
Motorists can expect to see an increased State Police and NJDOT work crew presence along several highways and are advised to use caution on the following key Shore evacuation routes:

· Atlantic City Expressway (entire length from Atlantic City to Washington Township)
· Garden State Parkway (mile post 0 in Lower Township to mile post 38 in Egg Harbor)
· I-195 (mile post 6 in Robbinsville to about mile post 34 in Wall)
· Route 72 (mile post 13.8 in Barnegat to approximately mile post 29 in Ship Bottom)
· Route 47 (mile post 16 to 21 in Dennis, and approximately mile post 32 to 35 in Maurice River)

· Route 347 (mile post 0 in Dennis to about mile post 9 in Maurice River)
The main element of the exercise is preparing to set up a contra flow (reversing traffic on a section of roadway to travel in the opposite direction) on these highways that serve as evacuation routes for the Jersey Shore.
Crews will be staging cones, barrels, and message boards in designated locations along the side of these highways, but will not be deploying the materials. No roads will be closed during the drill.
As a reminder, it is unlawful for motorists, including media, to pull off to the side of the freeway for anything other than an emergency.
Variable message signs will notify motorists of the exercise while it is underway. Motorists are encouraged to check NJDOT's traffic information websitewww.511nj.org for real-time travel information and for NJDOT news follow us on Twitter @NJDOT_info or on the NJDOT Facebook page.

Do they do this up north? Just wondering.
Sounded to me like this was a Southern District command post communicating with the various locations. First time I heard the activity but then again monitoring NJICS became better once the SDS Uniden line was available. Previously used a 700 yagi pointed at the tower here in Cape May County and the 536HP to monitor - so was more interested in the local departments activity.
