• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

472.05000 appears to be for the FD. I finally got around to entering it into my scanner and it's all FD. Anyone know where the PD really moved to? I've been monitoring the old FD channel 453.57500 but I get nothing. Anyone got anything?

DOH! I programmed the wrong channel. Too many channels & freqs! LOL! I'm monitoring 472.05 now. We'll see what happens.

Well, 472.05 DPL 156 is correct. I'm glad they moved to UHF. Alot clearer now than they used to be. I wonder if their repeater is still in the same spot(s)?

In case you weren't aware, last week the squad moved everything up to 478.825R/D712. AFAIK the FD is the same (453.575), but I usually can't hear them because of a weak signal at my location.

The new repeater is licensed for basically the same address as the old one -- borough hall / Main & Middlesex (new) versus 500 Middlesex Ave (old).

Metuchen UHF

On Aug. 10, 2006, Metuchen First Aid Squad and the Fire Dept. had new antennas installed at their repeater site at Borough Hall. The Fire Dept has a much stronger signal now & a longer hang time on the repeater. Now all Public Safety in Metuchen has moved over to UHF. The only services that I know of that are still VHF are the DPW & Local Gov't Services (transportation, etc.). I am not positive if the First Aid Squad has moved paging ops to UHF.
