• 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:

Where did the Pal Interstate Parkway PD Go?

Brought up their VHF freq as listed in the database for last night's storm, and crickets?

What gives? If they moved, is anyone going to update the database?

Dconti, I believe the RR SOP is to retain entries so long as the FCC license is not expired or cancelled. HTH.

You can limit the scan to the particular talk groups IDs the Pal police dept uses.

Depending on the cut over, the freq may be listed as "depreciated" or outright deleted. In the handbook, the deprecated freq's should not remain in the database for a long period of time. The uniden software will see that tag and not scan a depreciated channel.

OK, can anyone tell me the talk groups IDs?

New Jersey Interoperability Communications System (NJICS) Trunking System, Statewide, New Jersey - Scanner Frequencies

is the link to the NJICS. Scroll down until you see Palisades Interstate Parkway Talkgroups about halfway down the screen. The DB is showing that they are using P25 Phase II talkgroups which can only be monitored with a GRE PSR 800 or either one of the new Unidens that are expected out any day now. And it shows they are using encryption sometimes on these TGID.

What kind of scanner are you running ? The PIP talk groups are Phase II which can only be monitored on the GRE PSR-800 or the new Uniden BCD-436HP & BCD-536HP scanners which just started shipping this week.


The info for the NJICS system can be found here: New Jersey Interoperability Communications System (NJICS) Trunking System, Statewide, New Jersey - Scanner Frequencies

Thanks for the information. Currently running HP1 scanners in the base and mobile.

Not quite ready to drop another 5 or 6 hundred bucks on another scanner to listen to the PIP PD, and certainly not until user reviews are forthcoming and the prices drop, which they will.

Thanks again.

IF it matters the VHF freq is still used to communicate with local EMS/Parmedics when responding to incidents in the park

FWIW. As crazy as it sounds, the use of encryption isn't a matter of policy but rather is arbitrary depending on who's dispatching. Most enable the encryption, others are fellow radio geeks and turn it off at the dispatch console (and they can on their setup).

So it's a matter of listening on the right night.
