I haven't been picking up Pequannock Police for a while, so this morning I put my radio on CSQ. I began picking up DMR transmissions on 453.8. I know they are DMR because I listened to the input and it is definitely TDMA. I don't have a DMR radio, so can someone please listen and get the information needed and submit it to the database? Thanks!

I'll check it out. I thought I heard Pequannock PD in analog the other day on 453.8000. I see you are in Kinnelon. I am able to pick them up in DMR on my 536, as long as I program each site freq in, but not with the RR Database setup as it will not trunk.

They were analog a few days ago

Yes, I also heard them on analog a few days ago. However, I just noticed that they upgraded their fire and police licenses from only FMN to FMN/DMR. I appreciate your help!

Now they can sound like they're holding their noses!
What a bad move for Pequannock.
Anyone get all the frequencies?

I don't know for sure, but I don't really think this is a trunked or IPSC system. So far, I've only picked up DMR on one frequency 453.8. The fire department seems to still be analog on 453.025.

It's not trunked. It's a conventional IPSC setup. Not quite sure what the DB limitations are that force a system like Kinnelon (or NJ-TRBO) to have to be listed that way. If you set it up as a OFT in the 436/536 with each channel as a separate site, it works rather swimmingly! :D

That's the 436 and 536's 'One Frequency Trunk' function.

If you look at the favorite lists in the link down in my signature, you can see how I have NJ-TRBO and Spectrum Communications set up as OFT.

Thanks, I meant it's not trunked but IP connected. I had to think about OFT also, then it dawned on me One frequency trunked. I copied Kinnelon in sentinel from the RR database. NJ-TRBO works fine.

Pequannock DMR

I wouldn't be surprised if the powers in Kinnelon (or their radio vendor/shop) influenced Pequannock to choose DMR, since they are only a few miles away from each other. That being said, the next step is obtain the CC # and TGs on each frequency where DMR use has started and submit to the DB:cool:.

Thanks!

Confirmed, this morning I heard a unit call out with a traffic stop on 287, followed by another unit calling Pequannock with additional radio traffic. 453.8000 CC1. I'll put it in as a one frequency trunk system later on today.

I will check, they come in loud and clear here in Northwest Bergen. I checked my Kinnelon system it's set as one freq with each freq as a site, still won't track. I get them fine in Conventional frequency by frequency. Some sites I only see 1 or 2 bars then a full bar in single frequency trunk.

I have set up DSD+ to scan the system.

I can confirm 453.800 is DMR
Police Dispatch group is CC1, ID 3101, and slot 1
Dispatch UID is 3101
Mobiles are 6xx
Portables are two digit

Will continue to monitor for other TGs

DMR for public safety critical systems....what a joke. What they should have done is upgraded their site and joined up with the County if they were going to stay UHF. Just my .02

I think someone on here said Rockaway is going DMR also. I don't understand why those towns do not go to the Morris County TRS. They already have the radios in their cars for it.

A lot of people don't have faith or trust in the county dispatch or disagree with how they operate or decisions they make. A lot of opinions in departments when it comes to dispatching. Some towns don't like to play ball with county.
