    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.

I saw several packs of fighter jets fly over head today in groups of 20, at least 150 total jets. They looked like they were heading from Northern California to Southern California. Anyone have any clue whats going on?

Don't know what this was. Any idea what type of fighter jets they were? That's an awful lot of jets going up at once. Also, know where they were stationed?

I didn't hear any chatter on the military freqs or HF. Very peculiar indeed.

I heard Expert 21 on final approach to RWY 23.....although I couldnt figure out what airfield he was heading too. Heard someone else being given directions to North Island.

Don't know if it's connected, but I'm seeing lots of convoy traffic on I-40 heading east. Also lots of heavy Army stuff on private trucks heading east.

My guess would be San Clemente. The FRS likes to go there at night especially, for carrier app practice.

I believe the large group of fighters was the two squadrons from the Nimitz wing returning home.
