• 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:

It's used by ALL HELICOPTERS that land at the Wall St and other heliports, not just NYPD. The sightseeing choppers are the most common to use the frequency!!

That freq is used by aircraft flying the New York City/Hudson River VFR Corridor. Pilots announce their aircraft type, location and altitude when entering/flying the Corridor. The Skyhawk is making reference to a Cessna 172 Skyhawk.
