Verona is on a trunked system (EDACS) in the 471 MHz range, with a conventional UHF simulcast, but that simulcast has poor range. Come to think of it, so does the EDACS system.

Essex Fells police is dispatched out of North Cadlwell on UHF conventional; Essex Fells Fire and EMS is dispatched on the municipal band frequency 158.94 (along with Caldwell, West Caldwell, East Hanover and a bunch of others), and fireground is on 154.0925 (narrowbanded VHF conventional). East Hanover's stuff is all still on VHF conventional.

I'm also in West Caldwell and I have difficulty hearing Verona from here. East Hanover is fairly busy and in fact their FD/EMS toneouts are stronger than even Caldwell and West Caldwell's to me. Don't forget that Fairfield is on the NJPSIC system, TGs 2599 and 2601.

I would get a nice gain antenna for your radio,would probably help alot,I think they are directional,they are hard to get,but with an outdoor antenna you can even hear in Passaic county.

It is weird. I receive them fine on my 436HP. Contact Scott Wilson. He has a north Jersey favorite list. I loaded it in and then deleted stuff I didn't want to receive.

The other thing is make sure you update the 536 database to the latest. They release updates weekly.

The link to my favorites lists is right here in my signature, and I'm always doing some kind of update to them on a regular basis...
