install a directional antenna pointed at the NJICS tower and your problem will be solved.
Castor, I've been looking for them on the Long Branch site. I am now monitoring both Telegraph Hill and LB.Logged a couple of Eatontown radios (RID 1312xxx) being denied on the Telegraph Hill site yesterday between 9:46 and 11:10. TG's were 4903, 4905, 4911 and 4913.
I'm gonna start monitoring the Long Branch site this week also. I finally got my outside antenna up so my ability to decode is much better now.Castor, I've been looking for them on the Long Branch site. I am now monitoring both Telegraph Hill and LB.
Just curious, has anyone monitored any activity for Bloomfield on those TGs that are highlighted in BLUE? I am pretty sure Bloomfield has additional TGs assigned to it. Either they have not been using them yet or simply being very discrete on their usage. Again its something to watch and monitor for. Please, Any new discoveries or conformations please post and submit to DB.
Just to clear up the rumor mill.Noticed tonight while listening to REMCS on both VHF and on the UC site of ICS that the REMCS dispatcher reached out to units 1402 and 1403 and 1402 responded but only on the ICS side and it was not simulcast down to the VHF only the dispatcher was simulcast to both and the other field units were responding on VHF like normal.
I also noticed in an earlier transmission today one of the REMCS dispatchers made a comment to the one BLS unit to "use that new fancy radio in your truck and switch to the MONOC channel to talk to your ALS, that's what its for." Could this actually be a sign that REMCS units will use ICS as its intended for actual interoperability between the REMCS units and outside agencies such as MONOC? Honestly it's a step in the right direction if thats how it will actually be used.
One final note, heard through the rumor mill that all REMCS units will be transiting to ICS by Jan. 1st and the VHF channel will go quiet which seems reasonable enough if all the trucks have ICS radios in them now, but again through the rumor mill so take it with a grain of salt. Ill keep monitoring both channels and see if I notice anymore changes.
Just to clear up the rumor mill.
UH-EMS will be cutting over to the P25 NJICS System fulltime at 0600hrs. tomorrow Saturday December 22 2018.
REMCS 1 Dispatch (4755) will be in the clear mode.
The other REMCS Talkgroups will be in secure mode.
As to the interoperability question, yes all UH-EMS unit will be able to communicate with our outside agencies as well and the entire I/O NJICS system.
The current system (VHF) REMCS 1, REMCS 5 will remain active on simulcast for the next 60 days. After that, REMCS 1 and 5 will become a gateway into the communications center.
This also includes ECOEM 1 and ECOEM 2.
The field units will continue to have VHF communications as per regulation.
