Default Heard VSP in the air during this standoff...

Duxbury man dead after standoff with police - WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-

I heard the VSP while they were in the air monitoring the situation on the ground on frequency 460.5000 PL 118.8.

I could only hear what the person in the air was saying on this frequency. I did not hear anyone respond but I'm sure it was someone on the ground.

Are you sure it wasn't another agency's air asset communicating with VSP? Was there a callsign used that began with a word, followed by a number?

My agency has fixed and rotary wing craft available in the area, and have assisted VSP in the past, however our sister agency tends to be quicker to respond; they use the prefix "Omaha".

Good point. Now that you mention it, I'm not 100% certain it was VSP.

I was assuming it was due to all the VSP on the scene at the time and they were turning down any SWAT team assistance from Essex and somebody else.

I didn't hear the whole conversation and I didn't hear any Omaha-which I have heard in the past.

Sorry for any confusion.
