I'm programming in New Jersey Transit's Motorola Type II 800-MHz trunked system. I've got several talkgroups already programmed but the one group I want to put in (buses) is different. Instead of finding the 5-digit talkgroup ID under the column labled DEC there is another column, labeled Subfleet with a 5 digit, hyphenated number. Then there is the DEC column with every row in that column filled with a zero.

Will the hyphenated numbers in the Subfleet column work? I'd like to monitor the NJT buses and am thanking you all in advance for your help/advice on this question.

Not sure which radio your using but if you look you will see NJT is listed as a Type IIi system and should be programmed more like a Type I system. If you do that it should take the subfleet TGID.

The NJ Transit system is actually a Hy-brid trunked system, meaning it uses both Motorola Type I and Type II formats. Depending on your scanner you can either install it as a Hybrid system or you may have to install it twice one as a Type I and another as Type II. Ray

They do, but it's usually when they can't get through on the VHF channel.
