    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.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what might have some activity for this week's visit from the Pope ??

I may be a little far to hear some of the close action, but was hoping that some stuff activity may be on some of the NYPD Citywide freqs.


My guesses where there would be some activity would be:

National I/O Freqs -> http://www.n2nov.net/interop.html
NYPD Tac Channels ??
Federal Freqs

I would also figure that most of the traffic would be APCO-25 or Encrypted....

Even if we can't hear "Pope Activity", it may still be something to hear how NYC is moving PD resources for the visit..

He seems to be taking quiet a tour of NY while in town: http://www.archny.org/papalvisit/tentative-itinerary/

Will be sure to check out the NYDXA Net this Wednesday to hear if there is any more info.

Since they said the protection will be provided by USSS, I suppose those VHF frequencies will come alive also. In the past, the "non-head of the state" protection and misc. traffic are usually in P25 clear, everything else goes encrypted.

As for NYPD, I would keep an ear on CW1 or CW2, depending on which one they use on the day. It will mostly be crowd control but a lot of interesting stuff can be heard there.

Similarly, the media frequencies are also very interesting to hear, may be not as much as the new year's ball drop but nonetheless it could be good source of info as well.

the primary provider of protection will be the u.s. secret service, on vhf encrypted. the pope also comes in with his security also (swiss guard), unknown what they use.

nypd will be using det 2, citywide freqs. esu will be using tac freqs as well.

believe it or not, usss and other freqs are not too interesting to listen to, nor do they hold any "good" info. even know they are encryped, agents usually use code words and dont say "too" much anyway, and they never give out locations.

I am looking forward to monitor any radio traffic relating to the Pope's visit in NYC. What are the freqs of the Secret Service ? Are they repeated or simplex ? encrypted or no?

USSS does have repeated freqs, especially for the NY/NJ/CT region. But all protection takes place on simplex tac freqs in the Vhf range, digital encrypted. Occasionally freqs are in the clear but not for a high level visit like this.
