• 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:

ok hello New York im coming up to NYC in a couple months and recently hand programmed 163 with most of conventional frequencies and NYSP. so a kid in my high school World History/Geography class cause we were talking about 9-11 and he said that New York was one of the first cities to go digital, I dont think he knew anything about scanners or the radio system FDNY is on im just asking are they digital. in the DB it said that the FG HT9 was the only FDNY frequency that was digital and i checked all the DOITT trunked systems saw everything a mix, so im just checking . thanks

FDNY is not digital. I use an HT1000 to listen when I'm in the city.

New York County, New York (NY) Scanner Frequencies and Radio Frequency Reference

NYPD doesn't appear to be either.


Edit: I should have read your post more carefully. I only listen to the dispatch for each borough and none of those are not digital.

ok thanks i dont think that this kid knew what he was talking about, i figured that they weren't considering all of the conventional frequencies and obviously the analog trunked systems

I think the only pressure to change anything in NYC's many radio systems might come from the FCC's rules about narrow banding. Whether that forces a change to digital remains to be seen. There is still a bad taste in FDNY's mouth about digital [the fireground experiment]. There seams to be no operational reason to change anything.
