I am from NJ so I don't know please forgive me but it seems that all the Troop T divisions are the same freqs over and over again. To monitor the entire troop, all I would need is to program the Divisionwide freqs correct?

Also I noticed F-1 and F-2 are simulcasted, why is this so?

Snorkel is right, but let me expand on that. The Thruway essentially operates on a poor mans simulcast system. The input frequency is always the same 458.425 with the proper PL for the zone. The repeater output alternates between the two frequencies. There is logic in the mobile radios that allow the radio to select the frequency with the best receive signal. Now you may be wondering what 458.525 is used for. That is a car-to-car channel. Quite handy to have programmed in the scanner you do (not) have in your car while on the Thruway.

I can receive 453.42500 97.4 loud and clear but cannot receive anything on 453.42500 123.0

Am I too far? (Bergen County, NJ)

The 97.4 Hz. CTCSS tone is used in the New York Division, closest to you.

The 123.0 Hz. CTCSS tone is used in the Albany Division, which starts somewhere around Kingston I believe (if I'm wrong, I'm sorry in advance). The odds are, you are probably too far from the closest transmitter in the Albany Division to hear anything with the 123.0 Hz. tone.

The 97.4 Hz. tone is used again in the Syracuse Division, but you're way too far away to hear anything from them.

I was a thruway dispatcher for 31 years. we use to be on high band till the early 70's.
there are 5 zones and only 4 radio zones. new york. albany.syracuse and buffalo. Midhudson is in with new york. All repeaters are connected via fiber optics and some microwave.
