Presidential Debate at Hofstra University

potus_seal.jpgReprint from my Southern New York column in Scanner Digest magazine:

The Presidential Debate will be held at Hofstra University in Uniondale, NY on October 16th.   

Hofstra University held the 2008 debate between Senators John McCain and Barack Obama.  In 2010, the NYS Gubernatorial Debate was held at Hofstra.   

Using my logs from 2008 and 2010, we can start our planning for 2012.

One would want to seek out any federal activities on the VHF and UHF Federal bands, including the National InterOp frequencies.  There will most likely be MilAir communications as well as Civil Air Patrol.  

In past years, Secret Service runs primary, with local police running support.   This year will be different from 2008 because Nassau County Police now has a P25 system which is running encryption on their talk groups.  This will be a great time to find any new or special talk groups on that system.  Using Radio IDs, we can get our best guess as to what each new group might be.  I am hopeful that Nassau Police will continue to simulcast their trunk system onto their previous UHF Frequencies, but there have been times in the past where they stop simulcasting due to security concerns.  I would bet this would be one of those times they disable the simulcast.
