• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

    Rockland Countywide Police Channel

    Is the VHF link to the Rockland Countywide Police TG still operational? Haven't heard anything in a while. Have there been any changes in the use of this channel?

    Where did Bear Mountain go ?

    During the summer, the Bear Mountain outlet is great fun scanning. Harriman State Park, 154.890 is overwhelmed by people who give the Parks PD plenty of things to do. Super slow channel on winter days, and nonstop in the summer..... Silence. My BCT 15X works on every other channel...

    Spring Valley NY PD: Encrypted

    Hi, I'm very new to radios and just purchased a Uniden BCD436. I live in Spring Valley NY and am trying, without success, to listen to the Spring Valley PD.

    Orangetown PD

    Has OPD made a decision not to join the Rockland County trunked public safety system? I know they found some problems during testing. Since it's been over two years since the system went live you would think there would either be a resolution to the problems or a decision that they can't be solved.

    Rockland County Public Safety Communications System
