• 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 saw that the PD took over EMS. What do the other 6 squads do?

I am considering moving to Toms River, and I want to keep my cert. up.

Thanks,

Who's encrypted? I didn't notice any mention in the RRDB.

Toms River, Pt Pleasant, Berkeley Twp, and Manchester on some talk groups. Some of the cars are in the clear in TR, Pt, and B Twp, dispatch is mostly encrypted. I'm sure more will follow in the future, rumor has it Brick may also down the line. I hope the county doesn't when they start using the new frequencies they applied for.

Oh well. That can't be a reason for me not moving down there. I can't stand north jersey any more.

The best move I ever made, Elizabeth to Toms River, I wouldn't move back north if they gave me a house, but in the last 10 years TR is finally starting to remind me of up north. Still better here then up there!

The squads are still active, and do run a decent amount of calls. The med units are mainly daytime IMO. There is one on at night, but it seems that there is a duty crew at one of the squads at night. Not sure on this, but I do know that the squads are still active!

The paid police med units are dispatched on Police F3, 471.950 (P25 digital/encrypted). I don't monitor any of the police frequencies due to all of the annoying encryption, so I can't verify whether or not the med unit dispatches are encrypted also. Maybe someone can verify this.

Thanks. The Toms River PD website says the run 24/7, but I wasn't sure how current the info was.

I can only presume that once Motorola sells digital to EVERYONE, they will pitch encryption even harder. It will come to the point where scanners won't be sold in the USA. But that's probably 10 years down the line.

You gave me an idea in one of your above posts, about nothing in the db about enc. I asked in the admin forum about adding a column with abbreviations for that when a town is digital, we'll see what happens. Right now it just says apco 25 in mode column, or FM.

Your right, the more they push encryption the more they make, even FA and fire are going now, 10 years sounds about right

Some states on the DB do state P25 Enc. But I guess nobody on the NJ DB has submitted info.
