The Radio Reference Database lists two (2) transmitter sites: Alpine and Mahwah. However, aren't there six (6) transmitters sites now: Alpine, Carlstadt, Fort Lee, Hackensack, Mahwah, and Paramus?

Also, the RR listing states that "all law enforcement talk groups are encrypted." Actually, all COUNTY law enforcement talk groups are encrypted, the local agency law enforcement talk groups currently are not.

from what has been posted and comments from other sources there are two main sites but yes they simulcast thru all sites i think its called "LSM "
the 2 primary sites send the control channel data comes off is Alpine or Mahwah not the other sites, which is what you want your radio to capture in order to receive them
hope this helps - anybody else?
oh yea the towns that have ever used the system are in the clear But there are talk groups that some can access that are secure i think?

Linear Simulcast Modulation is the term you are looking for. There are plenty of topics on LSM on the board here, So I'm not going to go into detail here. Only thing I will add is that previous generation scanners have difficulty decoding with LMS systems. I believe the BCD536HP has improved but not fully corrected this issue.
