• 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:

Throught the day I've been noticing more frequent appearences of single and two-flight F-18's over the area. I've been able to catch a few related comms but not any tactical or operation control. I assume this increased activity will be sustained at least over the weekend. Anyone else monitoring? Any recommendations where I should look for air-air or ops control?

I'm hearing callsign COMBAT on routine ATC.

Banger 1 & 2 were doing a flyby over Pepperdine University, heard them talking to Mugu approach, and saw them in formation going up the shoreline while I was camping, awesome.

Cool! Too bad that wasn't on a week day. I work at Pepperdine and I would have liked to have seen that.

I've occasionally seen S-60's and CH-46s flying over here. The best was a few years ago when the Blue Angels flew by up the coast in a diamond formation. They were headed to Fleet Week in SF.
