I recorded a NYPD Police radio scanner. I've gone through and edited out the dead air and obscured any addresses said. For example if the call was to "14556 Washington" You will only hear "56 Washinton" or "16 Washington".

    @monsieurpooh - I do not live in New York. I captured this from a streaming scanner site. The bit rate is what it was streaming at. I'm not sure what the point of recording it at a high rate than the source is. Besides making the audio file much larger. I think for most purposes this is fine.

    And just to add to my previous comment it IS very obvious to tell the difference between "old radio" degredation and mp3 degredation. The former just sounds OLD; the latter sounds "underwater". It's very distinctive and can quickly turn something pro into something unprofessional.

    Okay this is an excellent recording so why the hell would you butcher it by turning it into a 69 kb/s mp3. Seriously. Talk about destroying what could have been a gem. I heard very obvious sound artifacts that are not part of "old radio degredation" and literally made it sound like Youtube. I looked up the mp3 bitrate -- 69 kb/s no wonder. If you want to hear something that sounds like police chatter coming from a 240p YOUTUBE VIDEO, download this sound; otherwise I cannot recommend it. Excellent recording, terrible execution.

    Good for an in-game radio station, which I often do
