I havent heard much activity on this system at all in general

If there is more activity then it must be on the air more so in Suffolk because i didnt hear anything during the storm

I still do hear activity on 158.160 158.175 158.220 and 173.300

Had all my dongles tuned to public safety but last week there was decent daily chatter on tg's 220 and 550. Last night I left it running and all that was seen was a bunch of group in use entries. Not one group call like what was being seen last week. Not sure who uses this system but I don't think they are 24/7.

I am also not that far from their Central Islip corporate office and believe I have received them even with the 800 mhz antenna am using now. But so far this morning I have not heard a single transmission.

This is the antenna set up in Central Islip on Carlton Ave via google street view

Its 8 am now and not one peep on the p25 system. Strange
From last night,

Have the scanner on and fire depts are busy again today with wires down, trees on fire and transformer fires. Been running the p25 system and only 3 calls seen in OP25. Even tho there are many out of state linesmen here on the island, in addition the the PSEG workers, one would think there would be a more PSEG activity on the uhf\vhf freqs. Only vhf I heard was on 158.160 Pseg Dispatch and Operations and that was disp giving directions to an address.

Many of the linesmen I have seen from out of state have antenna on their trucks. The freqs they use are licensed to their area. Wonder if when they are out of state, are they allowed to use their radios?

I fully agree that PSE&G activity has been minimal at best. You would think it would be nonstop. I ran my scanner again last night in record mode and only got the same thing you picked up: 158.16, just a couple of times.

AFA the out of state trucks go, I would imagine that they have different frequencies in their radios than what Long Island uses, so they wouldn’t be able to interact locally. However, they must be getting their orders and directives from SOMEONE, that’s a puzzle.

Sorry, I’m not a DSD user so I’m not familiar some of the jargon being used here. When you say “Group in Use”, does that mean a radio is affiliated with the system but nobody is talking, or are you actually hearing people talk?

You got the activity only on 158.160? Because there has been plenty of activity on 158.175 and 158.220 as well
153.710 and 158.235 are more electric ops freqs but i think those may be used more so in eastern suffolk
Pretty sure they still use 100.0 PL for all their freqs

As far as out of state goes - look for some freqs for "Pike Electric"
Pike electric is known to give mutual aid to various states during storms
They mostly use lowband freqs around 49mhz
49.46 49.54 and 49.58 with 67.0 PL
It also wouldnt hurt to plug in a few "dot/star" itinerant freqs such as 464/469.500 464/469.550 and whatnot during storms

I think the plan is to have the 900mhz system be setup for mutual aid and perhaps link it to the NJ system eventually but time will tell with that...

Only traffic I heard was 158.160 in a 2 hour span then I had to leave the house for a while. Disp was loud and clear and did not hear field unit. At the moment my only antenna is cut for 800mhz.

I found freqs listed in fcc that are licensed to pseg that are not in the db and stuck them in also. Most were uhf but not any hits.

When I asked about out of state help, I meant are they (the out of state guys) allowed to talk to each other (the out of state guys) on the their freqs? Their freqs that are licensed to where ever they are from? Just wondering if there are rules .


Todays 900 mhz p25 counts
tg 550 7
tg 220 2
tg 228 8

Also may be worth a shot to try some of the 900mhz itinerant freqs during storms and whatnot - [link]

I'm thinking searching VHF. Even low band wouldn't be out of the question.

PSEG seems to be still using their usual VHF channels for the most part
They have low band freqs licensed but i dont think they use them but you never know [link]
The trucks tend to have long whip antennas on them

I also heard that the frequency 37.60 is somewhat of a nationwide interop freq for utility companies

On another note i got activity on 154.490 D664 a few days ago
Its another one of those simplex/itinerant freqs - possibly licensed to First Energy [link]
