• 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:

a very usefull item for scanner users

There are almost as many different sets of 10 codes out there as there are law enforcement agencies. You would be hard pressed to find one agency that uses the "standard" 10 codes (whatever "standard" means) without some modifications.

I know you had good intentions Landon but you are missing the point....this list of 10 codes would be useless outside of the one agency that uses it...So unless you live in the area where this 10 code list is used it would be a waste of money...as others have said in this thread there are about as many variations on 10 codes/signals as there are different snowflakes...heck, even here in Central NC I could list 3-4 different 10 codes/signals lists...makes for interesting monitorning though! But good try Landon...let us know what other scanner stuff you find out there!
Happy Monitoring!

P.S. Here at Radioreference.com under the counties listings for each state we have a place for 10 codes/signals lists...hope this helps!

Since there are more versions of 10-codes than terms in it, I don't bother keeping any written 10-code lists. I learn them by LISTENING to a particular department and paying attention to how they are used.

Over time, I learn them and get to know them and don't need to have any of them written down. I don't bother trying to memorize any of them. Instead, I pay attention to how they are used in the context of the communications. After a while, I'm able to fill in the blanks.

FEDS say No to 10-codes

The Feds recently said that 10 codes need to be faded out, and to use general English terminology in place. This is to make it easier for different entities to communicate with each other...INTEROPIBILITY

10 codes

" The Feds recently said that 10 codes need to be faded out, and to use general English terminology in place. This is to make it easier for different entities to communicate with each other...INTEROPIBILITY"

Actually the currentl position was that agencies may continue to use 10 codes for their own day to day operations , but in any interagency or interoperability scenario, they are not to use them. Part of that being what everyone else is posting... there are many variations and it would cause issues.
As to the 10 codes being sold. Try using the internet and you can usually find them inclduing specific ones for your area. This is the same as these people that sell manuals to items on ebay, many of which can be downloaded ...:] There will be buyers....
