I was up from Florida a week and half ago and monitored the West Orange system with my 996p2 . The date was February 12th and I drove from West Orange to Downtown Millburn using Gregory and Wyoming Avenues . On Wyoming Avenue in Maplewood the signal started to break up and by the time I got to Millburn the radio was constantly searching for the control channel . Also could not receive the system on Morris pike along the Millburn Springfield border .
As a comparison I've driven that route for years and never had a bad signal along Wyoming Avenue and no problems receiving the system in Millburn .
The following day I was on Route 10 in Livingston and East Hanover and as always had no problems with the signal .
Another thing I have always wondered about this system: there are two 854.x frequencies for this system listed in the DB. In my 10+ years of monitoring I have never heard a single transmission come up on either of these frequencies. Is it possible they were licensed but never actually programmed into the radios?
