• 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:

How is it doing on the West Orange Simulcast ? That site had been pretty bad for the majority of non I/Q based scanners.

Absolutely perfect on NJICS West Orange. I also get Morris county and Wayne perfectly as well. My HP 2 could not bring those two in even with a roof mounted antenna.

So far I am very impressed. Mine does have the “hum” though.

I agree the SDS 100 works extremely well on the NJICS system. However if you try to receive analog VHF and UHF channels it is a joke.
No sensitivity and low tinny audio. The Unication G5 has an internal antenna for UHF and it works much better than the sds 100 with an external antenna. I wish Uniden would have put more effort in this model that has such a high price.

Hey everybody,

I just started monitoring NJICS with OP25 again this week.

I keep seeing TG 4929 on the Berlin site. It's not in the DB, doesn't come up in this thread according to search, and so far I've yet to grab the volume knob fast enough to hear the traffic clearly. Anyone been able to catch this and know what it might be?

As far as NJ spending your not alone so don't feel bad, better yet you should be asking you town fathers why they are spending the money to switch in the first place, and most are not going to tell you it's so "E" can be implemented at some point.
I don't think encryption has much to do with it. The vast majority of towns that have switched to NJICS over the years are not using encryption aside from a select few tactical channels. Towns like Montclair and Belleville switched over 4-5 years ago and are in the clear. If they were making the switch for the purpose of "E" they would have done so by now.

What site would be best to receive in mid Rockland County, NY?
The system is not designed to provide coverage into the middle of Rockland County. You'll have to answer this for yourself by determining which site, if any, you can reliably receive from your location. I suggest taking a look at the NJICS site map in the wiki to get an idea of which sites are nearest to you. Don't expect to hear a ton of diverse talkgroups on either of those sites if you are able to receive them, as they are standalone sites carrying fairly limited traffic for local users.

Are snow plow talk groups used for this system in south jersey Moorestown New Jersey
State DOT operates exclusively on the NJICS, so you'll want to listen to the DOT South Maintenance talkgroups. The plows generally operate on the various "Crew" talkgroups, or the Seasonal Contractors talkgroup.
