    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.

470.23750 RM 186.2 PL NJUTAC4 North-East Region UASI

So far I'm hearing a bunch of mic clicks and testing. There was a thread about the NJUTAC channels being in use on this forum before. They might be "ICE" Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

EDIT: one unit just called in as ICE# so this is confirmed they are ICE. Also these channels tend to go digital if anything gets good.
