Drove along Rte's 1 and Rte 287 this afternoon, and couldn't lock onto the Middlesex Trunking system from my Unication G5. Through parts of Edison, Metuchen, South Plainfield & Piscataway. Anyone know if the system is down. Locked onto the Woodbridge trunked system almost to the South Plainfield/Edison border

Are there a lot of cell towers in the area?

Like Mdsxfire stated above, make sure you also have the 800 MHz freqs listed in the database programmed in. The County added them to the rotation a few months ago again as part of the expansion into the trunked system.

Yes, the 800 freq were offline for a while, I was told they were doing maintenance or upgrading the radios in anticipation of putting them online with quite a few larger towns migrating to the system in the nearer future, I have not seen any of the 800 freq used as CC on the days I have checked but with Harris any one can be used as the CC.

New, Middlesex Co TG's : 82, 863., 943, 19503, 19712,19901, 19542, not in database, any ideas?
82 is a patched TG, i thing it is another Mercer county TRS patch from the station numbers and streets, the 19xxx should all be sayreville TGs

I'd like to attach a G5 file here for someone to check re: Middlesex County. RR doesn't allow a unipps file extension. TVENGR, how do I share?

In the P25 Trunking System Setting, the Middlesex Site List has the decimal value of 10 for the RFSS ID and Site ID instead of the hex value of A.

The county wide fire has been steady keyed up on the TRS since last night. The RID is from a patch mostly likely from a uhf radio

TVENGR, thank you, changing to A vs 10 solved the issue. Thanks to all on these forums that are nice enough to look over minor and major issues and get people back to listening
