Who do you listen to on a regular basis?

I always have on:

I monitor and provide a feed for Burlington County North Central Patrol Zone 3 (previously known as P3). Ive been listening to this channel for a little more than 15 years.

I also have a basic scanner listening to the Philly helicopter traffic channel, SPEN 1, Mt Holly & Eastampton Township bands and some simplex ham freqs (thanks to trsundstrom).

More than 50% of the time I have on:

The State Police: C3-5, the Air Channel and the Medevac Channel.

On the computer I listen to Mel's Garage (NYPD Zone 4, Midtown North, Midtown South and 17 pcts) & the Special Operations Division channels. Sometimes I have Phila PD & Camden City up as well.

What do you listen to?

I listen to Franklinville NJ police,Monroe twp NJ police,Glassboro police and Rowan univ. police.I have the newer chanels programed in from the database but found most switch over to the old chanels for car to car etc. I have the fire programed but olny mointor if something interesting comes across the police freq. I used to listen to the whole county and Phila police but I enjoy the local stuff and follow it more closely. I have olny one scanner so from time to time I stop manually to listen to one chanel.
I also listen on-line to the 147.345 repeater in LA. sometimes when out I listen thru my-iphone.I use 5-0 radio free version

123.025 is the helicopter philly traffic freq. Basically all thats said is pilots announcing where they are, where theyre headed and altitude. they use the bf bridge, zoo, and other big landmarks as reference points. Take off and landings mostly on Delaware Ave pier. Its pretty neat though

My feed two channel and covers Morris County, and NJSP. The left channel is a Uniden BCD396XT and covers Morris TRS, NJSP, SPEN, The new PSIC, and various DOJ like FBI, ATF, DEA. The right channel is my AOR AR8200 and it handles the conventional stuff. PD's, EMS, FIre, and UTAC/ITAC's. If I hear of something I think people will be interested in (like the plane crash on 80) I'll try to cover it as best I can. I'm always looking for something new and interesting to monitor. Any suggestions?
