• 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:

As I get older and more salty, I’ve found myself listening less and less. I do still enjoy listening to the FD though...Maybe because that’s where I first started when I was 16. But at home my radios for the most part stay off.

If they have a talkgroup on the NJICS, why would they continue to operate on VHF? Unless they had a patch in place for the transition to 700, it doesn't make much sense to spend all that money on new radios only to continue to linger on the old VHF channels. :unsure:

True, I have already noted and made changes to the DB. Also for the interim, it remains to be "heard" if the old analog frequencies are now regulated as "local" and or "back up" channels. I mark them as such until otherwise directed via forum post or DB submission. :coffee:(y):cool:

FWIW, I still hear Bloomfield on their old analog channels.

Hearing Bloomfield on NJICS currently as well... Assume they went the North Caldwell Essex Fells route and will drop the analog down the road.

Ansky, not to doubt you, what are your hearing on Bloomfield old analog channels? Routine dispatches, tac or "local" comms, patch from NJICS?
So far I have only monitored them on their NJICS Talkgroups. I have their old analog channels in my 536 and have not locked them out to see if they are still using them basically as a "back up" or "local" to NJICS. It could be when I do listen, but i have not heard a thing since the switch over. Clarification please.
THANKS

I actually don't listen to Bloomfield regularly, but last week I definitely heard them using the old channel 1. I tuned in this afternoon for about an hour and didn't hear anything at all (PD or FD) so maybe that was just a fluke on analog.

The new Bearcat SDS100 scanner decodes this system excellent. If you are thinking about upgrading to scan this system better, consider the Bearcat SDS100.
