NY STATE POLICE

Fulton was added to Zone 3 (Headquartered in Oneida) in a realignment. The special Interstate 81 unit (3D-7 cars), are also relatively new.

NYSP also works on the sheriff’s department frequency in a ‘’closest car available’’ program.

Zone 7 Parks & other agencies

Other agencies which use the State Police radio service are designated as 7D units with two digits if they are a state agency such as Park Police, who also use the Sheriff's freq. but use their 7D-## call numbers when doing so: 7D-10 through 7D-21
7D-50 = State Parks boat

DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation) also uses state police radios from time to time. The units are designated as 7N-6## units as Jefferson County is in DEC Region 6

Villages that use SP Radio are 7D-3# units, or may use county numbers:
Adams - 7D-301, 302
Carthage - 7D-310, 7D-311, 7D-312

SIMPLE HOMEBUILT ANTENNAS PLANS
Any piece of metal is an antenna of some sort, but for scanning you want to be a bit selective. The main antenna length to concentrate on is 18 inches, which centers in the most-used frequency range of 153 to 156 mHz (for police, fire, ambulances, etc), marine and federal freqencies. For lower frequencies (county fire, aircraft), a longer antenna is needed. For higher frequencies, a shorter antenna. UHF (460-470 mHz) antennas are generally 6", 800 mHz antennas are 3" for a straight wire, but honestly--my experience is that experimentation is key for 800 mHz scanner reception: I find that an 18'' whip antenna picks up 800 mHz transmissions much better than a 3" antenna if you are within 10-15 miles of the transmitter. Any farther away, and 800 mHz signals are very difficult to pick up with any consistent quality with any antenna. The 18" also does pretty good for UHF frequencies if there are any at all to pick up where you are.
A PIECE OF WIRE In case you lose your ''rubber ducky'' antenna that came with the scanner, even you can do this. The most simple antenna is a piece of wire 18" long. You'll get good results, even on the county fire frequencies if you're close to Watertown. The trick is to get it connected to the tiny little antenna pin in the center of your scanner's antenna plug. BE CAREFUL--if its big wire, file it's size down to a small size so that you don't bend the heck out of the tiny silver connectors that are in the hole inside the white soft plastic part in the center of the antenna connection, which is called a BNC terminal.
For this--or any quickie antennas--you can go to RadioShack or another electronics store get a BNC connector that coax will screw into. These are very handy.
Most commercial scanner antennas are designed to cover all popular radio bands, but if you decide to make your own, need a small one for travel in hotels or at someone else's home, or need a very small one for apartment living, here's a few simple ideas:
COAX QUICKIE The wire used to connect an outside antenna to your radio is "coaxial cable" or ''coax'' for short. coax is also used for cable TV. Try to get a few pieces of coax from RadioShack place or from a radio repair place or from one of your own antennas. Try to get solid conductor coax.
If you don't have a BNC connector, just carefully insert the center conductor into the little hole in the center of the scanner's terminal.
Trim the outer rubber insulation off of about the last inch of the coax. Then slice through the last half inch of the silver braided silver shield and the white insulation to expose the copper conductor. The coax should now screw on to the BNC conductor, which will attach to your scanner. To make sure there's a connection, unscrew the coax from the BNC connector and tune in your NOAA weather station. When you screw the coax back in, the signal should get stronger and cleaner if there's a good connection., and if you get the Canadian NOAA station (162.4), you're all set!
Now, on the OTHER end of the coax, cut off 18" of the outer black insulation at the end of the coax, and then slice through the braid lengthways. Leave the white insulation on the center conductor. Peel the braided shield down along the black rubber insulation and tape it in place. That 18" of center conductor is your antenna; the 18" of braid forms a very basic "dipole".
The coax can be run out of a window or door to the outside--the higher the better. Fasten it up or sling it over a tree branch or whatever--having the antenna elements vertical gets the best results.
"F" ANTENNA Think of the capital letter F lying on its back. First, prepare the wire to go into the BNC connector as above. Then strip the black and the white insulation off of ten inches of the end of the coax. Solder or fasten one 18" and one 36-to-48" piece of wire to a piece of wood or plastic, about 7-8 inches apart if possible. Solder or fasten the center conductor of the coax to these pieces of wire, and run the shield along the piece of wood or plastic, making sure it doesn't touch the two antenna wires or the center piece of coax. That'll give you two separate antennas--for VHF-hi and VHF-lo frequencies--with a rudimentary dipole. Fasten it up as high as you can or over a tree branch; the antenna elements should be vertical for best results, either facing up or down--it doesn't matter.
