Default Jersey Central Power & Light - P25 Migration

Guys,

It looks like JCP&L has started the migration from the analog Type-II to their new P25 replacement.

I need others to scan around 935-940MHz for new P25 control channels in the northwest part of NJ & down the shore (if you would be so kind!).

The closest tower to John & I here in Warren County is Harmony, and it's showing 3 other site neighbors (so this new system looks to have many more sites than the old 2 simulcasts of the original).

Also, the infrastructure is definitely not Motorola (as noted by the never-before-seen WACN in use - Motorola systems always use BEE00).

Also, the RFSS for these new sites is 10, not 1.

Fixed that now as well - this means we need to enlarge the coverage of that current system to be more than just Allegheny Power.

And them mix of VHF & 900 is really strange as well.

The beauty of P25 systems is that you can easily mix sites across different spectrum. There are examples in the database of mixed VHF/700/800 systems. I'd like to take a look at the band plan the system is broadcasting. Wouldn't be a bad idea to fire up Unitrunker or Pro96Com to take a look at it in more detail than DSD+ typically provides.

Please do. I cannot hear Harmony from here & was wondering if you could possibly hear anything from potential Sussex County sites.

I'm actually watching the NJICS right now on DSD+ - I've never used it to watch a P25 CC before...

Yes to a scanner, but highly unlikely for you.

You live in an area serviced by PSE&G or Atlantic City Electric.

Nothing heard on the Toms River (Lacey) or Lakewood sites from Bayville.

It's possible the southern sites aren't online yet judging by the FCC buildout deadlines,North is April 25th while South is May 24th.

OK, I deleted that stand-alone entry that I created today. I appears that the Allegheny Power VHF sites became the first roll-out of what's going to become a multi-state system for their subsidiaries.

I've added the Harmony site to the main system (First Energy Trunking System, Various, Multi-State - Scanner Frequencies).

I see more sites have been added to the DB,I currently have Unitrunker fired up on the Lakewood site. Control channel is very weak. Adjacent sites are Matawan,Upper Freehold and Oyster Creek.

What frequency are you getting Lakewood's CC on? I'm just over 6 miles away from Oyster Creek and I'm hearing nothing yet on the Lacey frequencies.

That is DSD Plus. It gives a little different output than unitrunker
