Yes. Here is what I have confirmed still is use... only for agencies dispatched now by the County and using the TRS...

Randolph PD's old channel now rebroadcasts FIRE RESP 1 and EMS DISP 1. Frequency is 476.500 DPL 205. They use 477.225 DPL 306 as their FG. Randolph EMS still uses 476.725 DPL 413 for their talkaround and all have the Interop repeater for backup which is 476.350 DPL 025.

Dover Fire uses 472.425 PL 103.5. However, their simplex interior FG is on 471.450 PL 77.0.

Roxbury 478.600 PL 162.2

Morris Plains 470.900 PL 77.0

Morristown 453.450 PL 123.0

Morris Twp 453.5875 DPL 205. I've never heard anything on 453.1375 and have had it in my scanner for years. Although I just noticed on my notes I have "simplex ony, DPL 205, not confirmed."

Chatham 156.150 PL 114.8. Also repeats initial dispatch. DTMF in beginning of tones sets off receiver.

Harding used to use 155.940 PL 103.5 for fireground ops when they were dispatched on the old MCREDS repeater. I don't know if they upgraded to UHF.

Morris County is still rebroadcasting FIRE RESP 1 through 5 on the old MCREDS repeater 151.055 PL 173.8. They also have two simplex FGs on UHF...481.100 PL 71.9 and 473.850 PL 110.9. Someone mentioned that one of the FDs out west (Netcong, Mt, Arlington, ??) uses them. Nothing confirmed.

My notes also show Chester FD/EMS was putting up a repeater on 472.675 if anyone wants to confirm it's up.

What about the police departments? Do any of them use their old channels for tac/talkaround?

Yep. I still hear Boonton Twp and Mountain Lakes on their VHF repeater chit-chatting. Same goes for Chatham Boro. Chesters, Washington Twp and Mendham...I'm too far to hear their old VHF stuff so I'll leave that for someone else to confirm.

Chatham Twps' PD repeater now repeats MUN PD 4, so no to them. Same with Randolph PD...repeats FIRE RESP 1 and EMS DISP 1 now..I've heard them use their UHF interop though. Other UHF's-Morris Plains shares with DPW; Morris Twp yes and Morristown yes,

EJM is correct on Roxbury's old Fire channel...repeats FIRE 3 and EMS 2 now.

Old PD low banders...I don't think anyone even has it in the cars anymore....well, except Denville PD, but they have their own dispatch...for now.

It seems that Dover's 472.425 pl 103.5 is being cross patched to Mun Fire Response 2. I hear static on this frequency and voice coming over 151.055 pl 173.8 at the same time. Can someone check if this is the case, please, and report your findings and we'll update the database. Thanks.

From an active FF from Rockaway Borough. Why are you questioning me, when you only have two posts?

Yikes, it was just a question. Something wrong with me browsing for a long time and just now signing up?

I confirmed that Rockaway Borough FD is using the Countywide Fire Ground's.
Thanks buddy. I do think we should revisit the TRS patches since the switch to P25 Phase 1 to make sure everyone got reprogrammed.
