1) Anyone here from NJ? If so, what county?

2) When you program a simulcast system , do you put in all the sites?

TIA

If it's a single zone simulcast system all the sites will have the same frequencies so you only need put it in once. If they have multiple zones you can program any that might be in range of your monitoring location(s).

A Simulcast cell is transmitting EXACTLY the same thing on EXACTLY the same frequencies on all sites in the cell. Your scanner (or real radios) have no idea which site in a simulcast they are receiving at any given time. So programming one site within the cell also gives all the other sites in that simulcast cell.

Now, if you are talking about different simulcast cells or different non-simulcast sites, those are programmed different. You could program how every many of those as you have a reason to think you are going to want to listen to.

I don't live in NJ, but in an area with a large statewide simulcast system.

I only recently figured out what a huge difference it made in boot-up time to delete sites I won't access. 20 seconds turned into 5 seconds.

I do, I simply deal with the Sites that are Appended, at creation, because you can't reAppend Sites once they are deleted, at least not without a convoluted ordeal, or third-party paid software.   Basically, with my Sites they are all 0's or 10's (zero's or ten's) 0 is closest to 90 furthest probable and all other Site being pressed unto SiQK 99.  You can use Avoid rather than SiQk, or you can use Location Control for that Favorites Lists, I prefer not to use Avoid, as I have to scroll to unAvoid, and use Location Control more for areas I'm not familiar with. All of the Departments are dealt with in the same fashion - I've tried to keep my creative editing down as that plays/pays off later down the road when you try to reAppend.  I do the same or similar with Departments 1-9, 11-19, 21-29 ... and Department 98, and back to 91 are my Everything Else Department-wise groups, where I might stack like entities Department Quick Keys together, like all DOC on 97, all DOT's on 96.  The methodology is based on knowing no matter what scanner I have, I can change the Keypad 10 times and twice on Sundays, but changing the scroll wheel or volume knob will be a labor of love, or a devil of a time.
