Just heard county on PD North tell all Bay Head units (not sure if Mantoloking was mentioned as I came in mid-transmission) to switch to their "new channel" and that PD North will no longer be used. Not hearing anything on OCPS-F or on the 700 MHz system, but OCPS-F is really heard to receive from where I'm at. Any ideas where they went? FCC licenses show nothing for Bay Head and just the FD repeater for Mantoloking. Thanks.

Maybe they went to the Monmouth County Trunk System, they are right on the boarder. Plus, it seems that system has great coverage.

That's up to someone Monmouth to find out,doesn't make sense to me though they'd be better off waiting for their own county's system to be up and running.

I am at work now, but did anyone check the FCC database for any new frequencies for either town?

Yes there's nothing new licensed. I'm giving that Mantoloking fire channel a try with nothing heard yet.

There's no way they joined the Monmouth County 700 system with the new Ocean 700 a few months away from going online.

I heard they're using Point Beach PD CH 2 (477.325). I am sure it's encrypted, but maybe we can see radio affiliation or if there's more activity than usual on that channel. They almost never use it.

Okay, here is what I found out. My source is a cop who works in one of the towns that county dispatches on PD South. He also used to work for Pt. Beach PD when he first started out in law enforcement. He seems to think Bay Head & Mantoloking are using Pt. Beach PD 2 or 3. He knows they have a private channel 3 that is either unlicensed or unlisted or both. Pt. Beach PD also has access to the 5 frequencies that Beach Patrol uses.

Someone who lives in that area needs to start using signal stalker to track this down.

Looks like Eli figured it out. They are using Point Beach Common, 477.825 P25 with a NAC of 293. So far they are unencrypted and the radio ID's make sense.
I believe Eli sent it to the database.

So does this mean that Bay Head and Mantoloking are being dispatched by Point Beach or still by the County but on the Point Beach frequency?
