• 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:

Just before 12 noon today, the Pass Fire Air Boss ordered up two VLAT's (Very Large Air Tankers)...I don't know where these are located...one of them *might* be a DC10...

Also ordered up are four S2 tankers from Ukiah...

The only VLAT's available currently are both DC-10's operated by 10 Tanker (10 Tanker Air Carrier). You may hear them as Tanker 910 and Tanker 911. They fly out of McClellan for Northern California incidents.

The Evergreen 747 VLAT was converted back to cargo, I believe.
