All zones alternate 453.425/453.525 between adjacent towers. It should be on one or the other if you are near the Thruway.

I am not in your area. I provide a Zone 4 Broadcastify Feed along with another provider that does Zone 3. But, I am sure Zones 1 & 2 are still as listed on the RRDB.

What Thruway interchanges are you near?

There is supposed to be a tower at the Spring Valley toll barrier so you should have a good signal. The next nearest tower is Sloatsburg service area. Frequency is either 453.425 or 453.525 PL 97.4.

I’ve tried both no transmission on either maybe it’s down anyway you could check?

It is very unlikely the system is down. Is there anyone on here in the Rockland County area that can check?
Even if the Spring Valley tower was down, I think you would probably hear at least a weak signal from Sloatsburg or Taxter Rd (Elmsford) towers.

How close are you to the Thruway...that could be an issue. Have you ever received it at your location?

yankees1013, the Spring Valley tower is 453.525 with a 97.4 PL. They switch back and fourth the entire thruway length. Example, Taxter Tower near the Mario Cuomo Bridge is 453.425 with a 97.4 PL. That PL is used up to New Paltz, then it becomes 123.0 PL and Albany dispatch.
Hope this helps you out.

I Am Over in Northern Westchester, My 996P2 Picks them up fine. I Travel to the GSP every day and hear them well into Jersey as well. Check Your antenna to make sure everything is getting received correctly, then a common mistake is checking your programming and make sure you don't have them on Lockout or Avoid. I would also suggest going outside to see if you can pick them up.

The Mario Cuomo Bridge
It is and forever will be known as The Tappan Zee Bridge!

middletown Palisades state police
Those are basically two or three separate agencies, if I'm even understanding what you're trying to ask.
  • SP Middletown (Orange County patrols) now operates on the Orange County trunked system
  • SP Haverstraw (Palisades Interstate Parkway patrols) operate on the Rockland County trunked system
  • State Park Police Palisades Region "Bear Mountain" also operates on the Rockland County trunked system
You don't have much chance of picking up the Orange County system from the Spring Valley area.
