• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Neither FBI or Customs. Its a normal VHF (Victor) frequency for Air Traffic Control. Here are a few users of the frequency: Military Comms Searchable Frequency Database

You could have heard the word "Victor" in referring to 132.275 has a VHF (Victor) frequency as opposed to a UHF (Uniform) frequency. You may also have heard the word "Victor" (really Vector) as an aircraft getting vectors around other traffic or weather.

The word "Ground" could have been used when ATC was telling an aircraft to contact "ground" control, ground control are the guys to tell aircraft where to taxi to while on the ground.

One has to wonder if you are hearing aircraft working the Washington Center remote outlet at Martinsburg,
WV. You do not say where you are, but looking at other posts, it looks like possibly Trenton, NJ area and you would hear some aircraft doing that there. Also, you did not say if you actually heard the ground stations and a callsign for an aircraft would certainly be helpful.
