I'm working on setting up two banks on my scanner. One is an OEM bank and the other is a Interoperability bank. This is how I have them set up, so far:

Hello,
I would add
866.3125 WNNM894
867.3125 WNNM894

These 2 freq's have not been heard as of late but might light up if an emergency occurs.

I wish I knew but no one else in NJ is licensed for those freq's so it shouldn't matter.

Nice list BTW,
Dave

You forgot the VTAC frequencies.

VHF Tactical Frequencies:

155.7525 - VCALL - CSQ
151.1375 - VTAC 1 - CSQ, PL 156.7 Hz, and P25 Digital
154.4525 - VTAC 2 - CSQ, PL 156.7 Hz, and P25 Digital
158.7375 - VTAC 3 - CSQ, PL 156.7 Hz, and P25 Digital
159.4725 - VTAC 4 - CSQ, PL 156.7 Hz, and P25 Digital

George,

Joe11 mentioned in his first post that he did not include the V- channels because his model of scanner does not accept VHF narrowband refarm frequencies.

Joe11, as an aside...some of my older scanners don't accept narrowband refarms either. I still program in the V- channels as follows:

V-Call: 155.750 (156.7)
V-Tac1: 151.135 (156.7)
V-Tac2: 154.450 (156.7)
V-Tac3: 158.735 (156.7)
V-Tac4: 159.470 (156.7)

Just about all consumer grade scanners have a front end wide enough that any transmission made on any VHF narrowband channel will be heard on a closely adjoining "valid" (for that particular model of scanner) frequency. Therefore, I would not deny myself access to those frequencies just because I can not get the exact frequency in; esp. since more and more agencies are programming these frequencies into their radios.

Here at my agency, we just recently started programming these vtac freqs in fire & EMS radios.

SCANdal is correct,
If you are only 2.5Khz off it will not make a difference in older radios (for analog comms anyway)
It is actually starting to become a little frustrating with the new VHF's popping up in my area that now interfere with adjacent freq's with the old standard 15Khz spacing. Putting the correct PL's on all freq's has become necessary due to this.

I missed that. Thought this was supposed to be a comprehensive list of interop freqs. Maybe some of the other users will benefit by the addition of those freqs.

Joe, I have two frequencies for Ocean Gate, licensed to them, ATTN: OEM Coordinator:
453.175 PL 127.3 and 453.275, PL/DPL unknown, probably 127.3. Also, there's one listed on the FCC Database for Point Pleasant Boro, ATTN: Office of Emergency Management, 453.175. I don't have a PL/DPL for it as I've never heard them use it. There are some for some of the municipalities on Long Beach Island that aren't on your list.

In that group I put the five "most common fireground channels" 153.8300, 154.2350,154.2650, 154.2950 with the PL search on! No matter where you go in the state at least one of those frequencies with be active.

Not true Jaymatt.....None of those fireground frequencies are used in Elizabeth, Roselle, Roselle Park, Kenilworth, Roselle, Clark, Union, Linden, and probably most or all of Union County. In addition to that, whenever there's a major fire/disaster in Union County, 453.150 becomes the active frequency along with 460.450. I'm sure there are other parts of the state as well that you won't be able to keep up with the action on those frequencies mentioned below. I'm not trying to offend you, but just wanted to clear up your error.

Yeah I guess not EVERYWHERE. What I should of said is for generic monitoring. I have a scanner that does dynamic memory and put those frequencies in there as just "firegrounds hoping one will hit! I am working on a system for the Garden State Parkway. NOT the trunked systems which I have, b ut a setup where each town that the Parkway runs through I have the fire departments and ambulances programmed into a system

ALSO the RED CROSS:
CH 1 RED - Primary (Nationwide) 47.4200
CH 2 BLACK - Secondary 47.5000
CH 3 TAN - Alternate 47.4600
CH 4 YELLOW - Backup 47.6600
CH 5 ORANGE - Tactical 1 47.5400
CH 6 BLUE - Tactical 2 47.6200
CH 7 PURPLE - Tactical 3 47.5800

Thanks for the additional input Jaymatt. Yeah, one of those REd Cross frequencies you mentioned (47.660) is actually a school bus frequency used in my area. I forgot the name of the company off-hand and don't have time to look it up since I'm at work, but it was either Laidlaw, Villiani, or something like that. I never confirmed hearing any activity on those Red Cross frequencies myself and believe that the NJ State PD TRUNKED system may have Red Cross talkgroups included in their system, therefore they possibly may not use those low band frequencies anymore. I could be wrong though, but would be curious if anyone actually heard ANYTHING on those Red Cross frequencies in the 47 MHz band recently or in the past year?

Speaking of Interop frequencies, the only 3 I've confirmed hearing from the Union County area are 470.2875, 470.0875, and 859.7875. ONE frequency I can safely say can be heard throughout the entire state if a major crime is committed is 154.680 SPEN 1. That's one to keep in your scanner no matter where you go. In regards to Fire/Rescue......many counties in NJ have their own countywide frequency that becomes active if there's a major fire. I know in Monmouth County, there's one main FD frequency that most towns in the entire county use. But, then when you go to Ocean County, there's a DIFFERENT one you'll need to program in. But, like I mentioned, you can't just pick any 4 frequencies and feel that you have FD covered anywhere you travel in NJ.

Funny you should mention that N2ZGE because years ago I observed the same thing. someone told me the bus companies have special permission to use the Red Cross frequencies because they'll use school buses to assist in an emergency evacuation. I sometimes hear school buses on 155.2800 and 155.3400 and it's the same thing. I always thought that was a neat tidbit.
