I think it has a hard time picking the PSEG up,I had the homepatrol and I needed to have the Outdoor antenna connected to receive this system.I also had to have it set for ID SEARCH.You will hear gas leaks and the such...Check the frequencies ,make sure they are all in there.It does work,I hear it in Clifton,NJ,most of the time they are active during the day- 9-5PM .Take out talkgroups away from your area,I also say most traffic is focused in Central New Jersey for electrical.Talking about generators going down.Heard em yesterday,so it is active on my GRE PSR-800.
Make sure you are getting the control channel 1st!
Note William Paterson shares this site so lock them out too!
also note all my home patrol service types were ON,if you have EXTREME upgrade you can check its service type.(should be utilities)
