    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.

Not exactly answering your question but, they may be on NEXTEL, which is big in this area for the "Secret Squirrel" stuff, including CNET.

What is "CNET" in the NYSP context? NET is (or was) Neighborhood Empowerment Team in the City of Rochester. The expressway program was called GRIP - Greater Rochester Interstate Patrol. GRIP cars had RPD portables back in the 80s. I'm not sure how they're equipped now, but they still talk to NYSP dispatchers on the Troop E VHF channels.

During meth raids in the Binghamton area a few weeks ago they used:
155.565 some digital, some clear w/PL mostly 79.7
154.665 C-C
155.370 I/A
also the F1 pair and county sheriff frequencies

Some sample audio clips that match up with the link above.

They're stamped with the date/time/frequency/PL. Small clips because of the file size limitation.

The files I record using PRO-TURBO with the PRO-2006's average around 25 mb per hour on a normal day. Much more when something big is happening. Far too big to email or post.

Also, when I went back and check my logs, the number of hits with PL 110.9 and PL 79.7 were about equal.

Thanks for the information regarding this matter and was the digital heard on 155.565 P-25 or encrypted ? 73
It's not P25. I believe it's DES.

You can listen to samples of various digital modes at the following link. Just search down to DES Encryption.

Here's an audio clip of digital on 155.565. Note that there is no PL used when they in digital mode.

New York State Police Community Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET)

Contact:
Colonel John A. Mainello
Assistant Deputy Superintendent
New York State Police
Building 22, State Campus
Albany, NY 12226
Tel: 518-457-3869
Fax: 518-457-4779

Program Type:
Drug deterrence and enforcement involving community policing strategies and coordination of law enforcement agencies.

Target Population:
Drug dealers.

Setting:
Rural counties in New York State.

Project Startup Date:
1990.

Information Source:
Provided by the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS).

Evaluation Information:
N/A.

Annual Budget:
$7,170,000.

Sources of Funding:
Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Program of the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).

Program Description:
Established in 1990 to reduce drug trafficking in New York State, the CNET program allows State police to assist local law enforcement agencies in conducting undercover efforts that target street-level drug dealers by investigating, prosecuting, and convicting multijurisdictional narcotics traffickers and street-level offenders; reducing the number of duplicative investigations and prosecutions; and increasing the number of narcotics arrests in the communities. Trained undercover narcotics investigators are provided to police chiefs, sheriffs, or district attorneys who request assistance for drug-trafficking investigations in their jurisdictions.

CNET combines traditional law enforcement approaches and community policing strategies by: (1) improving the physical environment of the community to increase safety, (2) boarding up abandoned buildings, (3) increasing police presence via foot patrols, and (4) establishing drug-free zones as targets for enforcement efforts. An additional component of the program develops leads on illegal gun trafficking during the investigation of drug distribution operations.

Has anyone heard of IMAC car to car? I have heard the State Police mention this numerous times ("switch to IMAC car to car"). I haven't been able to figure the frequency out yet. Does anyone know what this is?

In my area they use two frequencies for car-car in addition to 154.665.
155.370 around here is referred to as Interagency or IA (this name will vary by area)
155.475 has also been used (rarely)

By the way, a trooper was shot (and survived) on June 10th and they had a command post set up for quite a few days. The helicopters were using FLIR (infrared) after 11:00 pm at night. The shooter is still on the loose, though they know who he is.
The frequencies the helicopters used were:
123.000
123.050
154.665
154.695 PL 110.9
155.370

The same frequencies are used in my area. However, I have no clue what IMAC car to car could be.

Yes, there has been B.O.L.O.s numerous times daily on 154.695 regarding the guy who shot the Trooper (NYSP Deposit). I guess he has contacts in my area and may have been spotted near Saratoga. I hope they catch that freak...

MB,

Just curious...are you sure it wasn't "I-Tac?" Do the troop cars in your area have 800 MHz radios in them?

I was thinking the same thing about I-TAC. There are talkgroups used by NYSP on local commercial 800 MHz trunked systems, and DOCS has a statewide transportable trunked license, also on 800, so troopers do have 800 MHz capability in some parts of the state.

Capital troopers (Troop X) operate primarily on Albany's 800 system. They only use Troop G frequencies when necessary outside the capital complex.

They may have said I-TAC.. however, I have never seen a Troop car in my area with an 800Mhz radio in it, so I don't know.

One time when I was in Clinton County, I got a Close Call hit on my BC246 on 820.3875 and it sounded like NYSP. I also noticed two Troop cars down the road from where I was. Clinton County has an 800MHZ trunked system, so the Troopers up their may have 800Mhz radios in their cars. I live about 50 miles from their and it is in a different NYSP Zone and their is no 800Mhz around here.

While the cars may not have 800 mobiles...they may have used DSP 800 portables

MB,

Just in case it is or was I-Tac that they switched to...here is the run down of the (nationwide) 800 MHz Interservice channels:

I-Calling channel (I-Call) - 866.0125
I-Tactical channel 1 (I-Tac 1) - 866.5125
I-Tac 2 - 867.0125
I-Tac 3 - 867.5125
I-Tac 4 - 868.0125

Note that PL 156.7 is standard. These frequencies may be repeated; inputs would be the standard -45 MHz.
