Just curious if anyone knows about the tech specs of those NYPD Skywatch apparatuses that pop up
in various neighborhoods. I read that there are 4 digital cameras and one officer inside. Walking by one, I noticed that there is a revolving antenna that looks like 4 sideways spoons (bad description). Is there anything specific to monitor from these? Unit ID?

They are on pct frequency that there at. windows are usaully tinted so you can't see inside it. mostly in high crime areas in the 5 boros. like housing projects, times square or desginated pct.

The "sideways spoons" as you call them look exactly like anemometers to measure wind speed.
