Lots of good info in one post, where to start lol When you say the county uses the state system as its core is that why the union county simulcast is the only one with 800 frequencies, the same 800 frequencies that made up the old EDACS system? I always just figured it was because the county still had the licenses for them and they added capacity to what seems to be an extremely active site on ICS.I can tell you from experience that those specialized units that have APX6000s from NJSP on the ICS would have to force (site scan) the radio manually to get on Union vs West Orange. Might have to do with the fact that Union gives priority to their county users as they just share the State Core and the APX has preferred sites set up in the codeplug with Union not being one of them. Also has to do with the amount of APX radios that are out there for regular marked unit as I can confirm that the APX in a newer unmarked ONLY has the Smartzone system and no ICS programmed in. And finally, it has to do with those specialized units with APX radios affiliating to that talkgroup. Most of the time they are on the INV talkgroups (B2-21 and up).

As for the affiliating with the ICS sites, so the reason you get the regular NJSP traffic in the comm TG's on ICS is just because those CIB units have those channels in their APX's so it simulcasts the regular chatter of units on the 800 system over to the 700 even tho they arent actually using radios on the ICS system?
Just trying to make sure i understand how it allll works. Thanks!
