Feed Notes

Main site (currently down) is located in the Mortimer Avenue Firehouse in Rutherford, NJ, monitoring South Bergen County Fire Dispatch and Fireground frequencies.   Towns monitored are  Rutherford, East Rutherford, Wallington, Carlstadt, Wood-Ridge, Hasbrouck Heights, Moonachie, Secaucus and North Arlington Fire dispatch.  In addition to the primary dispatch of 154.1600, priority is set to 154.2800 MHz, PL 156.7 (Bergen County Mutual Aid Channel and Rutherford FD FG channel).  Since the purpose of adding these channels are to hear the FG activity (and the feed is primarily for the Rutherford FD website www.rutherfordfire.org), I prefer not to have the dispatch channel set as priority...especially when mutual aid is being called. 

The scanner used is a Uniden Bearcat BC780XLT, effective March 27, 2011.  The scanner was attached to the former channel 2 radio transmitter VHF antenna located on the top of the 40-foot radio tower behind the firehouse, which is about 60 feet above sea level.  

Ths scanner at the backup location is a Uniden Bearcat BC996T.  The scanner is attached to an outdoor multi-band scanner antenna approximately 10 feet above the roof line of a house.

Frequencies monitored are:   154.1600 (167.9), 154.2800 (156.7), 154.2650 (210.7), 154.2950 (156.7), 154.2950 (210.7), 154.1900 (210.7),  154.0850 (110.9), 154.1600 (PL136.5), 154.2050 (DPL 205) and 155.805 (PL 156.7), 154.370 (PL 203.5), 156.1650 (DP 162), 154.235 (DPL 465).  New frequencies added 2/1/14:  Wallington Fire 501.8625 & Wallington Fireground 502.0625. 

The feed broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The feed goes down every so often, momentarily, for computer updates or technical difficulties beyond my control.  In the event this feed should go down, the feed at the old location (now serving as a backup to this feed) will go back online until the main feed is restored.

Due to storm damage to the antenna, the feed has been moved back to the original scanning site in the west end of town.  A scanner antenna will be installed in place of the damaged VHF antenna as it is not likely that the existing antenna will be replaced with a commercial grade antenna. The top section of the tower was also damaged.  All sections of the radio tower were taken down.  However, I hope to have the undamaged sections of tower reinstalled and place the scanner antenna on top of it.
