• 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:

Picked this up with Close Call on the GWB this morning...

452.3875 dcs 412

Trying to figure out what it is... Licenses show PANYNJ as a potential but not sure.

Chatter was surveillance related but unclear if it was GWB security or Police Enforcement etc.

Thank you

PAPD @ the GWB uses the trunked system now. What you heard might have been security,but they still use the old system for tow trucks and maint. on the bridge. I dont know of any other agencies that use that frequency.

Thanks Mike... it has been silent since I first picked it up. I am about 1/2 mile from the bridge at work on the NY side so I should be able to pick it up if it fires up again :)

THE Port Authority may use this frequency at the World Trade Center per the FCC license, with authorization for mobiles in the NYC area.

The PA does not use this frequency at the WTC. They use the trunked system there as well as all other PA sites. Like I said before at the GWB they still use this frequency for maint., security and tow trucks as needed.

Wouldn't that frequency be 453.8000?

I know that, I was pointing out that the frequency I picked up is not the one mentioned and that one is not listed under the metro area officially.

Although I actually meant to search the FCC db not RR which is usually for confirmed frequencies :)

Does the PAPD still use the analog channel 453.400 for the central police desk as listed in the database?
