    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.

I have been trying to monitor Newark PD from North Brunswick NJ (Middlesex County) and I can't seem to hear a thing. How strong is the signal and do you think I can pick up the newark pd in North Brunswick? Does anyone in the Middlesex area monitor Newark PD? I am sure you hear a lot of action coming from Newark.

I monitor Newark PD all the time from mid-Bergen County, NJ. According to google maps, I am 12.5 miles away. I receive channels 1-6 pretty well but not too good. From a scale of 1 to 10. My reception is a 6 and sometimes a 7. North Brunswick is 27.7 miles away. I would think you need a rooftop antenna to hear it.

North Brunswick isn't trunked - they're digital-conventional... :wink:

I used to live in Highland Park and was able to get weak reception of Newark PD on my handheld with duck antenna. North Brunswick is another 5 or so miles south of there so I'm not surprised you are having trouble picking up Newark. Not sure if you care about Jersey City but I doubt you'll be able to pick them up at all. I barely got any reception from them when I lived in Highland Park.

I live in Westfield, NJ and pick up Newark fine. The frequencies in the link above are correct for the police.
Sure, but Westfield is A LOT closer to Newark than North Brunswick where the OP is from.
