• 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:

11.175 is busy with EAMs tonight. Probably E-6B 163918 over western KY. And now RCH663 is trying to contact MAINSAIL. Got a reply from ACTIVATE who has been passing the messages.
MAINSAIL finally replying to RCH663 for a SELCAL check on FQBE.

RCH663 not hearing them well and likewise for MAINSAIL.
MAINSAIL saying they are unable to complete the request.

VXS-1 Navy test guys 'Warlocks" Pax River added another aircraft to their test squadron.
A Twin Otter DH6-C type or UV-18 mil lingo.
Low and slow but may catch someday with a Warlock callsign.

Thanks Terry,haven't logged it yet but now know what to look for :)
That callsign seems to be the tail as well.793255 but was curious where they got it from.
VXS-1 Warlocks
Sometimes Navy will convert a US or Army type to 6 digit Navy tail say 79-3255 etc.

Google search seems to confirm the SPUR definition as you indicated.
