    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.

The last few days I've been hearing some CHP units with "Eagle" callsigns. Just now I heard 78Eagle15. What are these units?

I know the numerical prefix designates the office. I just don't recall hearing the "Eagle" designator prior to the last couple of days.

I don't think so all CHP GTF units never come up on the CHP radio they work full time with the county and are always on the county channel's. I always hear the units that patrol my area 2730 and some their also 2730B and G

Since its near Salinas- G has to be for Gang units. CHP is doing some interagency task force stuff with MSO and SPD.
Same story in Frisco; where the local police are not allowed to use those scary black AR-15 rifles. They get around the anti-gun police commission's BS, by bringing in the CHP units, who can carry whatever they want or need to fight a war with gangsters...

Ah, I forgot you were that far down- edge of the earth! I heard a Zebra car on CHP channel, in a pursuit earlier this week- middle of the day. Started over in Castroville, into Salinas, all over town, then caught the guy over in the county area near Fremont Peak.

I believe David units are special assignment units. I hear on the Border Purple, Grey, and Green 138 and 139 David units. They are CHP FSP supervisors. Mostly on the patrol channels when their is a CHP vs. FSP issue but will show up on FSP North or South low band channels to speak with tow operators also. This is only what I have heard from an Orange County perspective.

The tows are 138 and 139 units using the CHP beat ID's.
