• 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:

Lately I have been noticing call signs such as "Road Runner", "Ram Rod", "Ping Pong", etc on the COTHEN network. Where did "Hammer" go? When searching Google I did stumble across Lindsay's Drug Interdiction Callsigns List :)

BTW, I logged HAMMER yesterday on COTHEN - remember that HAMMER typically only works the AWACS P-3's (D## ALE ids) and the Cessna Citation Interceptors (I## ALE ids) in Parkhill encryption.

Ramrod was this morning (very weak at my location) and Road Runner in last few days or so. Road Runner ALE id was WST and the aircraft calling was T07 (Omaha 07 Bravo). I should clarify that only heard the air units were heard at my location when hearing these stations, but it's happened on separate occasions now, so something must be up. The Ping Pong station came up in someones logs from the Haiti situation.
