• 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:

The Helicopter can use any of the Newark PD channels. Remember that in the Class B Air Space ( City of Newark ) the helicopter on the aviation side uses 127.850 MHZ AM. Now overnights at times the tower pulls all air traffic on the Newark Tower freq 118.300

I hear them on SPEN1 a lot when they are helping out the local police departments. Also remember the radios in the choppers are field programmable. They can come up on any frequency under the sun. I love listening t o 127.8500 AM, that's also- where the news choppers hang out!

News Helicopters are also on 123.025 MHZ AM.

You won't hear them ID as chopper 4, 2 etc etc

But you will hear them B.S. back and fourth and

chasing each other to jobs. Another good aviation

freq is NYPD Aviation on 123.100. Hope this

info helps. Anyone know what the chopper

ID's as on aviation and police radio and also

where the helicopter is based would be great

info. Take Care and have a good weekend.
