Boy Tony, those frequencies look like something I've posted in the past 


I would start with:

All the NYPD Citywide Freqs.  At least ONE of them will be used
470.6875,NY PD Citywide 1
470.7125,NYPD Citywide 2
470.8625,NYP D Citywide 3
470.8875,NYPD Citywide 4

The EMS CW Freq:
478.0125,EMS CW

Put in Some MEDIA Frequencies.  WABC will be broadcasting LIVE from the event.

Maybe NYC OEM?

If you have a DIGITAL scanner, Try listening to:
FBI Frequencies
Government Freqs in the low 400Mhz area

I would also try the New York CIty Department of Sanitation's frequencies since they could be active around midnight.

See here for frequencies and more information: [link]

Scandal,
When you say delete the above, are they no longer in use, or are you suggesting that they won't be anything on there for tonight's activities?  It was not my intention to listen or give those out as suggestions for tonight's ball drop.  From my listening position, the few that I gave out in my previous post are what I've cut my NYC event list down to.
The above post by IPFD was a list I put together that I have since filtered down quiet a bit.

The Tags on these frequencies are trunkated a bit so they fit on MP3 Players when I stream the audio to the web.  I will make them a bit more clear on the text tags.

All these freqs for NYPD came from N2NOV's site at one point or another.  I have not checked recently to see if anything has changed.

Like always, thanks again for the info.  You are a wealth of knowledge, and an asset to the MANY scanning sites you are a member of.
Thanks again for all you've contributed to my site and other sites in the last year.

w2lie,

I'm sorry that I didn't make my post above clearer. Yes, delete due to no longer being valid frequencies at all.

I understood what your intention was but wanted to take the opportunity to update the record since the information was posted as it was.

Extending wishes for a happy new year to all readers...

Most NYPD tac channels(and any channel thats designated as "tac" in general) are low power/simplex so unless your in the immediate NYC area then you most likely will not be picking up NYPD tac
Especially in NYC simplex does not travel far
If you are in the city, then whatever the nearest precinct is may be using channels other than g/u...

Exactly - you need to be in the city to pick up the tac channels
The closest even possible area in Nassau maybe somewhere around the Nassau/Queens border
Such as Valley stream or Northern Blvd/Great neck area
I have picked up NYPD tac in those areas and even then it was chopped...
