New Zealand Scanner Frequencies

Yes, I still have New Zealand scanner frequencies on my website.
Look down the right hand side, they’re still there.

The link is /scannerfreq/.

    Hi Gail & all, Wellington cops have gone digital aka encripted code etc……..its a pain in the a** lol 🙂 but yea the rest of NZ will follow, hopefully someone will leak the codes for a price on the black market or even a sell a police radio on the black market for a bit of cash & also hopefully they bring out a digital scanner 🙂

    na shes all over aye mate, central went digital a month ago and north went silent on about Wednesday. sad, been listening for 10 years after discovering i could get cops on an old radio i got from a school fair. have heard some crazy, crazy stuff going down in that time. It will be sadly missed. The nz herald feels lighter already due to lack of news…

    I’m still getting police in Tokoroa, Taupo, Turangi, Rotorua on 485.300 MHz and 75.45 MHz.

    I have been picking up some messages on 152.95 MHz. I thought it was railways, talking about Murupara and Kawerau, but then someone was sent to Rotorua Airport and there’s definitely no railway there.

    Coast Guard Radio repeater at the light house above Piha is on 129.650.

    Picked up traffic between a Westpac helicopter landing at Hamilton Hospital and shortly after, one leaving Auckland Hospital.

    Pretty new to the scanner scene. Does anyone know if there is a problem taking a hand held scanner into the airport? I’m heading down to Auckland next week to pick up rellies and I thought it would be fun for the kids to listen to the flight coming in.
