I was wondering what I should listen to when I go to Washington DC because I know that Police Department is encrypted
I have checked the database and most departments are encrypted

feds

you could listen in on the feds in the 162 to 174 and 406 to 420 area. you probably won't know who it is talking but it is neat to listen to. i don't know for sure but they might be in your new radio(436).

You'll have to be more specific about where you're going and what you're going to see. Folks can then make more specific recommendations...

If memory serves, the fire department is not encrypted....Mike

I'm going to Lincoln Memorial and the White House
I would listen to the US Park PD on 166.925. They handle most of the PD on the Memorial's, Monuments, and parks in DC. Also I would program the DC Fire&Rescue as they have lots of traffic. Just make sure to lockout all the boring stuff on the DC system (Parking enforcement, St. Eliz. Hospital ops). The Metro DC PD still use the Citywide channel on the old system that you could listen to.
