    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:

Tonight, in Somerset County, I heard Franklin PD doing a pager test for Finderne First Aid on the PD Highband channel. Seemed very odd to me as I don't believe Finderne is on any mutual aid lists for Franklin, but I could be wrong. Anyone have any insight on this? :confused:

Years ago, probably pushing eight now, I noticed Franklin testing Finderne Squad. If I recall correctly, they identified as 275; I think it was a daily test but it may have been weekly. I didn't notice that they ever stopped.

Back then I asked around a little and heard that it was for mutual aid. I don't have the current mutual aid list but would expect Finderne, as an adjacent squad, to be routine backup for that end of Franklin if 53/71, RWJ-SP, and Rutgers are unavailable. Which, I guess, makes it not-so-routine, considering how many agencies are ahead of them.

Yeah, it occured today with the rest of their weekly tests for their squads. It makes me wonder what other fire companies / squads they have the capability to page - and they did replace all of their consoles when they moved to trunking, so I guess they carried a lot of it over to the new equipment.
