• 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:

I caught another handoff here in Cape May Empire 11 switched from ZDC51 Casino 285.400 to ZDC39 Snowhill 236.8250. I looked in up on Ron's list and its an aircraft out of Oceana Air Station in Virginia

There is also some army helos that use the ID EMPIRE that transit through NJ on a regular basis. But being you heard the handoffs on those ATC channels, it probably was a fixed wing.

Rare for me based on my antenna setup. I don't get UHF air traffic control too much AND I SAW THEM (Yes I used caps) kind of a snooty remark
Justin - can you hear the controller on 127.700 Washington Center freq? If yes then monitor that when there is activity on 285.400 and you will at least hear the controller side.

Thinking back to remembering the activity on the radio - they were definitely fixed wing aircraft.
