Dispatch: 464 and 460, gun shots, 730 lakeside.
464: 464 both received.
Dispatch: 464 and 460, caller who is intoxicated is advising he heard about 9 shots from behind his house.

Dispatch: 464 and 460, we're still on public service with the caller, he stated he heard 5 more shots however the only thing we've heard is him opening another can of beer..
464: ten *laughing* four (partner laughing in background)

I heard someone jamming with a 50 watt commercial radio on FRS. I miss being able to play with my bubble packs.

Default thinking they're on a CB

Area hospital dispatch telling an ambulance to repeat their traffic "you were walked on"
Must of thought they were on a CB, so unprofessional

Question Unprofessional?

Just curious why you feel that's unprofessional. I too hear that expression all the time on conventional frequencies, often uttered by dispatchers who ARE professionals, so I guess that doesn't apply here.

Would you prefer that the dispatcher or unit say, "I think I (or someone else) was transmitting at the same time you were transmitting" instead? Why?

Have heard it quite a few times in the years. Nothing unprofessional about it. Simple way of telling some one that they were "walked on"!

I'm just trying to up my post count to 1000.
Actually, I have heard it several times in my 22 year LEO career. Never thought anything about it. FWIW. Greg.

Up in this neck of the woods we always referred to it as being " Stepped on. "

As in " come back good buddy you were stepped on "

See ya on the flip side

I guess "you were walked on" reminds me of CB talk and to me does not sound professional for an agency to use.
All other agencies in this area usually say "you were covered"

I even hear ISP Dispatchers use the phrase, "you got walked on." Always makes me smile a bit but in no way is the meaning ambiguous. Nor does it take any longer to say (nor is it harder to understand) than, "repeat, your traffic was broken."

I have heard walked on and stepped on any number of times.
Or another unit went over you...you were covered by another unit.

He was probably just getting a little uppity. I hear people say that on all services, especially amateur radio.

I believe the "unprofessional" comment was towards those field units who where transmitting inconsiderately, not the dispatcher advising users that they were walked on.
