• 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:

Does anyone have credible information on the future of NJSP trunked communications? My sources in the REMU have left or retired. Now that they have taken delivery of the new XTS portables, what's next? I am trying to factor in the state's current fiscal situation which should hinder any big changes. But, if the equipment has already been budgeted for or purchased, obviously, plans will proceed.Obviously agencies sharing the system will probably not encrypt but I am wondering about patrol comms.

The reason I ask is I am looking to upgrade a few scanners and if they are looking to go Digital, well OK. But if routine patrol comms will be Encrypted, there's no point.Most counties master plans should remain static due to budget constraints, with the exception of Monmouth possibly.Maybe Kevin can update us on Monmouth County.

I am looking for CREDIBLE information, NOT speculation,rumors or guesses please.

So far, the digital talkgroups have all been in the 4xxxx range. I have seen a few new talkgroups show up since the new radios were put into service (confirmed through Unitrunker), but none of them have been in the digital range (although any talkgroup can turn digital). Here are the new talkgroups to keep an eye out for:

28080
28112
28240
28748
28848
29424 - This one has been affiliating for months
35824

Also, it looks like they got a bunch of new radios at the ODU consoles (if they are sticking to the same ID plan).

Just speaking for the south system here, my trunker program has picked all but 29424, 35824, 28748.

150+ hits on the others from the A system.

I'll run the A system fro awhile to see how active they are.

Oh, and 40976 has a 200+ count on it.

I'm only running it on Troop B.

Add another one: 28816

40976 is Radio Repair Digital
41072 is another new Digital group. I Haven't figured out who is using it yet.
