I recently programmed a radio for NYC DOITT system. I put in just about every TG that is listed here. Even with the Pope comming to town the whole system is dead. The only traffic I hear is the DEP Police. Are the listed TG's current ? Or has the city moved on to digital, and now all these TG's are dead?

It is my experience that the DOITT trunk system is quite underused. If nothing has changed since I last was a user, the 2 agencies with the most radio traffic are DEP and TLC. Oh, and OEM conducts a roll call 3 times a day just to make sure everyones radio works too.

For the emergency services, NYPD sticks mostly to their own system as does EMS. We do not use it at all except when the field units want to go car-to-car.

As for the Pope, I'm sure anything relating to his visit is encrypted.
