    Ya. Not sure, but have you ever heard a Motorola Trunked Radio key up. It makes the exact same sound (the brrrrip) as the Nextel. I know that is not definitive proof, but it is strange. The first time I heard a nextel keyup, I thought I hit the PTT on my radio accidently.

    I believe they are actually using Nextel for connectivity.

    I'm pretty sure they can arrest you if they are Police... but I dunno exactly what their jurisdiction involves...

    And yeah, I have used/know about many trunking systems, but the blirp itself isnt an identifying trate... AFAIK the iDEN system isnt really provided by anyone else than Nextel and other smaller cell networks (Boost, etc)... it requires more antennae since it uses really a cell of networks as opposed to few highpowered tx/rxers.... oh well... it would make sense that they use something like nextel though...

    Their trunking network is very secure (in terms of people listening in and such), and should be pretty widespread coverage throughout most areas...

    I wonder if cops have a standard SSID on their wifi. I've seen a thread on here talking about new technologies in wifi location (like gps but with wifi). It would be kinda neat to have your gps screen make a red circle pointing out cops which are within wifi range.

    my wifi range here is never above 1 few meters... maybe 150m at best... probably easier to use your eyes!

    I don't think that that would pick up any motorcycle or bike cops.

    Although their main focus is transportation related, MTA Police is a regular police force with the same rights and responsibilities as any other
    police department. They can write you citations, arrest you, call in the drug dogs, etc.. whatever they need to do to get the job done.
    They have Highway Patrol units, ESU, Detective Departments, K9, Internal Affairs, etc.

    Their jurisdiction ranges as far as LIRR and Metro-North railroads run and all branch lines (from Long Island to the 5 boroughs to New Haven CT
    to Waterbury CT to Wassaic NY to Poughkeepsie NY to Port Jervis NY, and as of recent also Staten Island). It is a huge territory.

    The only portion where the "Metro-North" railroad runs that the MTA police does not cover is in New Jersey. Technically, that isn't Metro-North
    Railroad either, since all maintenance is done by NJ Transit, but I guess it's just easier to market it as "Metro-North".
