Hello Group, I will be arriving in NYC on Saturday, Dec. 19. We will be staying in Times Square, so I would like to listen to NYPD, FDNY, and EMS in the area of Times Square / Manhatten. I looked at the RR Freq Database, but couldn't tell which freq's would be the best to listen to. Thank you in advance for your assistance! Stay safe.

Manhattan is also known as New York County, which is how I believe they are listed in the RR database. You'll want PD, FD and EMS frequencies for that county / borough (Manhattan). I hope this makes sense. Feel free to PM me if you need additional assistance and be sure to follow FLRAILMAN's advice above. Have a great visit and happy listening. You're scanner will be going non-stop 24 hrs a day!

Here is what I would recommend. I would suggest putting each section into its own memory bank. No matter what time of day, your scanner will be active. Bring extra batteries!!

Help with question

I would like to purchase a handheld scanner to listen to NYPD and PAPD in the Manhattan South area. Uniden tells me that in order to purchase the right scanner I need to know what trunking system the NYPD uses-digital and/or analog as well as the company that provides the service, etc. Can anyone provide the correct info. Thanks.

NYPD does not use trunking; they are using UHF conventional. The PAPD is using an EDACS-wide system on the 800 band.
