Under their first FRN, 0019947670 the 200mhz freqs, looks like they had originally planned something at most of the rr stations on each line. With the new FRN 0003478419 so far mostly spread out in Suffolk and nothing that I could find in Nassau.


Seems there was a hang up in Tarrytown. Story source here [link]

New York MTA Allowed to Move Forward with Public-Safety Tower
Monday, March 12, 2018 | Comments

The FCC said PI Telecom Infrastructure (Parallel), acting on behalf of the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), could proceed with construction and operation of a proposed new tower in Tarrytown, New York. The tower would contribute to the provision of public-safety communications services.

Two parties, the village of Tarrytown and Tarrytown resident Leonard Cardillo, raised concerns about the proposed tower’s potential visual effects on nearby historic properties and the surrounding landscape. The FCC said the issues raised by these parties do not provide a sufficient basis for the commission to reopen the historic preservation review process, which is complete.

Moreover, based on a sua sponte review, the FCC said that the potential environmental impact of the proposed tower is negligible, and the commission declined to require Parallel and MTA to submit an environmental assessment (EA).

Parallel, on behalf of MTA, proposed building a 180-foot structure, consisting of a 150-foot monopole tower with a lightning rod and whip antenna on top, on a site owned by MTA adjacent to an electric substation on the east side of the Metro-North Railroad (MNR) station in Tarrytown. MTA plans to use the structure as part of its Police Department’s Metropolitan Regional Radio System (MRRS), an interoperable public-safety communications system designed to provide the necessary coverage for uninterrupted service across all MTA rail stations, facilities and roadways in the greater New York City metropolitan area.

And lastly,,

Looks like in other parts of NY,(Metro North Railroad) they have towers at a bunch of stations. Not sure what's active or not as I am not in that area. I am going to Hunter this weekend so I will plug those fregs that are on our route and try to convince my wife to drive .. Lol

Any idea who the contractor is for the Long Island area?
