    Need a good scanner antenna for Whistler WS1040

    I have a Whistler WS 1040 scanner and my antenna that came with it doesn’t work very well. I’ve been looking for a good antenna but I’m having trouble since I don’t know anything about antennas or frequencies. I live in NYC and I would like to listen to the FDNY and NYPD. Do you have any good...

    Shortage on NYPD dispatchers?

    Last night, it seemed several dispatchers were simultaneously covering other divisions. I couldn't scan much but I saw 100/101/102/106 were on the same air, 104/112/108/114 were linked and the 84/88/90/94 were linked. I guess covid and new years call-outs stretched them thin. I hope they get...

    NYPD talk-in frequencies?

    Hello! Pretty new to radio, so forgive me if I mix up some terms. I'm interested in tuning into transmissions directly from NYPD mobile units, rather than repeater-broadcast frequencies featuring the dispatcher. I was reading this thread, which states the mobile units use a separate "talk-in"...

    New Radios being used by NYPD

    I saw this photo and I actually saw some officers in person carrying these as well. Couldn’t get a great look but they look like APX4000’s or something like that. Can anyone confirm or know what model these are?

    Fdny ems & nypd

    Does anyone know what police precincts are covered by FDNY EMS channels? Since 4 of the boroughs are split into 2 or 3 frequencies, can anyone list what police boundaries are covered by each EMS frequencies. For example, EMS Brooklyn North to my knowledge covers the 94, 90, 84, 88, 83, 81, 79...

    NYSP Large Presence In NYC

    Anyone know why there seems to be a larger presence of state police in NYC, most notably in upper Manhattan and the Bronx? Talked to a cop friend of mines and he said they don't get along with the NYPD. Also do they use their own state Troop talk group or do they have access to the NYPD system?

    NYPD SSD Units

    So today I was listening to school safety citywide one and I heard over the radio different unit ID's like "Brooklyn north adam" and "Brooklyn north 14", "u-90", "team one". So I was wondering if someone knew what those units are? and can define them for me.
