• 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:

I'm sure this has been asked before, but I would like to try and get a final answer.

I know during the winter months as the database shows (35120 893 A1-10 MARINE Marine Police (All)) covers as it says ALL marine police.

Is this the case during the summer months??

I'm curious because I'm always out by in Barnegat Bay anywhere from Seaside down to Barnegat Inlet. Occastionally, I'll see a State Police boat out patroling and espeically now because the state purchased what used to be The Wheel House right before the entrance to Island Beach State Park I can imagine that their will be more Troopers out there, so which comm should I be monitering for this area??

Thank you!

All TGID's should be put in the scanner because, they sometimes switch to any of the TG's.
I had this happen to me at one time and wasn't hearing anything on North TG and found out they were operating on the South TG.

Also, someone mentioned here, I don't remember who, to NOT use the "control channel only" feature if you're scanner has it. Apparently doing this doesn't pick up all the TG's.

However, I cannot confirm this.

That was reported by someone and later shown to be incorrect. There was some other problem causing that symptom. I encourage control-channel-only mode unless you want to lock out a system voice frequency. That would be beneficial if you're getting interference from another system, like some reported on Troop B from an Open Sky system a while back. But we've strayed from the topic...

On the 396T scanning with search mode enabled on the trunk system should pick up all the TGID's regardless if they are directly programmed....no?

Yes, you would / should hear all TGID's in search mode. Here's the list of TG's for the MSB

36656 B2-6
36784 C3-10

12888 * This TG was posted here at one time and was id'ed for Troop C. I have it
in my scanner. I haven't heard anything yet.
