Ongoing issues with 460.2000, They were doing test counts and radio checks a few weeks ago after being on 460.4625. There is also some 60 Cycle hum now and then on 460.4625 from some units.Mahwah PD has been operating on 460.4625 CTCSS 151.4 (Mahwah OEM) for the past few days. Anyone know why they've moved off of 460.200?
The rules for trunking are a lot more stringent with respect to channel exclusivity than conventional. It could be interesting if they can get FB8 exclusive status in such a congested area. They would be in a better position with 460 MHz frequencies than the county is with T-Band, though, as the 460 frequencies will still be around.The article seems to suggest that Mahwah is moving all departments to digital.
It also mentions the installation of a central processing unit or CPU.
Possibly a trunked system?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Lodi uses the system but retained their own dispatchers at the PSOC.I'd have to disagree. I haven't seen a user of the Bergen County TRS that isn't dispatched by the County 911 center. And Mahwah won't give up their dispatch. And the County I'm told offered to provide the service for FREE !

That happened at Ridgefield. When they signed over to the county for dispatching, the county absorbed their telecommunicators. I'm not sure if that was some or all.I don't know about Lodi but I will say when agencies switch over to a County dispatch center I've routinely seen some of that agency's dispatchers go over to County as well as part of the agreement. Remember CENCOM....I hear some of those voices over at Union County now.
