• 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:

Only call sign I ever hear is when they are co working in an Task Force with locals that they do not have everyday ops with. Then the only call I hear is.. *US MARSHAL, or just MARSHAL and then the last name.* If they are not interopping, they just like DEA, and FBI (when your lucky enough to hear them in the clear) only use names. USSS except the bodyguard protective details are the same way ... Protective Details on the other hand love their funny little code names and call signs. I have heard CBP, ICE, and USPI use call signs often.
