• 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:

Hello all,

Since Colonie went to digital, I have been looking for other things to listen to while at home. I recently have loaded up the NYSP Troop G (Zone 1) channels to one of my empty scanner banks.

I have noticed that in the evening and at night (when I typically listen) it appears that when troopers run data & information, it occurs on the F-1 dispatch channel rather than F-4 COMDATA (155.550). I haven't heard any traffic on 155.550 lately at all.

Has this been going on for a while, or is it something new? I wonder if Troop G will have new plans for 155.550?

Kevin;
There seems to be little rhyme or reason as to how F-4 gets used. I have heard traffic on it quite a bit, then nothing for what seems like days at a time. I sometimes think it may have to do with how busy it is, what's going on in the troop/zone, or maybe even how many dispatchers are working. As they say on TV, stay tuned!

There was something a while back in the Post Star about the State Police moving the dispatchers at the Wilton barracks (Zone 2) down to COMSEC, which had already dispatched for Zone 1...perhaps that has something to do with it. I'm hearing the same thing in regards to traffic stops on F1
