• 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:

Today on all HF-GCS freqs (primarily 4724, 6739, 8992, 11175, 13200, 15016, but others used also) there are many, many short messages, EAMs, SkyKings, and other types, for unusual recipients and from unusual sources. The majority of these that I am hearing are coming from McClellan AFB, but with odd "from" lines, such as from "Clone", from "Tabby", etc. The "to" lines are also unusual, "Burn Pot", "Pole Ring", etc.

Lots of activity heard here on 8992 from 1930z onwards originating from McClellan including some strange tones in descending pitch - I guess they are being rebroadcast but 8992 is a bit low to come from Guam - Pango Pango perhaps but I find no information about a Tx site there.

Fighter jet(s) I counted 4 passes very high up. It could be one jet or more. The last one I actually eyeballed and his path was northbound over the east bay at about 1:30pm my time.

electricman, hearing the long ones here also, just heard one of 270 groups. But long messages are fairly normal, what is slightly unusual for me is hearing all of the odd callsigns that are passing EAM like traffic. Most seem to be sent by McClellan, but with odd "from" lines.

There was an F18 fly over at the giants game about that time

There was also an airshow this weekend at Mather Airfield (KMHR). 2 F15's were supposed to do a fly over in Yuba City also this morning. There were also 4 T-38's from Beale AFB and an F/A-18 Super from Lemoore.

I went to the Saturday show but stayed home today to listen. Its 0030, Monday local here now and im still hearing a bunch on 8992 and 11175
