Are baofeng users jamming that up yet? Over the last few months you don't have to look far to find that signature roger beep coming across division frequencies or even Westchester Co PD.

I was under the impression that when they request radio silence during busy times it was due to in case emergency traffic is needed then the freq is not tied up with routine traffic...

Also im not sure what im hearing on 482.6875 PL 110.9 which is a Interop freq but it also seems to be a simulcast of one of the other citywide channels - not sure if its SOD or otherwise...

I'm re-posting this from the other thread about CW 4 for your consideration........

Before we make too much of this SOD thing and potential encryption, etc, let's remember something: the NYPD was the first agency to seek, and get, a waiver on narrowbanding SOLELY because of the cost of doing such a thing throughout the department was prohibitive. And the city has a lot less money now than it did then. And one of their other arguments were that the move to 700 was just down the road a bit.

But after the "interference" that was heard on the air during New Year's Eve at Times Square, I can see them investing a smaller amount of money now for a "mobilization" frequency or frequencies with a form of encryption and for field radio identification and control.

And considering what political priorities the present mayor of NYC has for the future which cost tons of money (and his personal and political disdain for the police), I could see the NYPD seeking yet another "waiver" for the 700 changeover, too, to avoid laying out the money for that.

What would they need a waiver for? There is no mandate to a "700 changeover".

(T-Band aside, since there is no requirement in that auction to move to, specifically, 700).
