• 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 bit of a mystery here. I first started to monitor this a/c at about 8:30PM EST Sunday evening, after I heard the radio operator give a position report "in the blind" to Santa Maria. Santa Maria attempted to reach the a/c on 5598 on several occasions, then requested other a/c in the area to attempt to call a/c.

Santa Maria did establish comms with the a/c at 8:50PM but the operator appeared somewhat confused as to her exact position. Anyway, the tail number given by the operator female/perfect English is what is nagging me. I cannot find any registration of the tail number in any data base.

Tail number Victor Victor Paul Romero 528. Any guesses?

Thanks
Rick

Also, it does appear that a/c registered on a number of various islands in the Caribbean start with "VP". Is it possible that the pilot just repeated the "V"?
