• 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:

Try Yonkers PD. There's plenty of digital activity on the federal bands (although often encrypted). Connecticut State PD. There's some other Departments in Westchester. Other than that digital has not taken hold on NYC (which I am happy about). I hate trunking, digital and especially encryted comms. They're ruining my life. I think I was happiest when I had a six-channel vhf/uhf scanner. You could just go to Radio Shack and buy a crystal. Oh woe is me.

All you need to do is to search the fed bands in the 163.0-173.0 and 406.0-419.0 and any unencrypted comms will be heard. There is the va hosp pd,diplomat security,ice ops and some fbi/dea comms in nyc that can be heard as p25!!!!! Even a nyc coast guard frequency is very active in ny harbor.
