From what I can tell, it sound like Boonton's 46.42 base is linked to the GMRS repeater.

I stand corrected, Robbinsj2 is correct. A while back the 46.42 was linked to a GMRS channel. That new frequency is a business band channel.

Apparently they had a problem with the tones going out. They mentioned Boonton Twp. but I don't know why since they are dispatched by the county.
