• 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:

Any consistent APCO in the NYC area?

I've been wanting to try out my scanner on some P25 channels but I haven't quite been able to. Does anyone know a consistent channel I could try?

You're better off asking about frequencies and their use in the NY regional forum. So I've moved your post. The APCO-25 forum is for discussion of the technology and how it works.

You could try Yonkers PD in Westchester Along with Greenburgh and Dobbs Ferry. The frequencies are in the database. I am getting all 3 in Northern New Jersey. Having some audio issues with Yonkers on my 996. But Greenburgh and Dobbs Ferry come in excellent. If you are feeling real lucky you can try Rutherford PD in NJ near Giants Stadium, they are digital on 453.8250 and Franklin Lakes which is Northwest Bergen County 470.4000 they just moved to digital 4 weeks ago.

I was finally able to prove that my radio's P25 works......... while scanning the public safety band. Turns out upstate is using it now.
