• 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:

1936/1944 has been around forever.

But 2448 is relatively new. Heard some activity this week and last, at one point it was in the clear. I think it may be related to the Loudoun Co gang task force.
The channel was active tonight in the 7:00 hour. Then around 8:30 there was some talk on Leesburg Ch2 and Leesburg Dispatch mentioning bringing people downstairs and the task force clearing the scene.

Actually it would probably be the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force.

In the clear at 9:32pm.
9:37- A unit requests some urine cups to be brought to the center. Gang unit are also active on the Detectives TG tonight.

On 2448 this afternoon I heard a Jail unit ask for a particular prisoner be sent to the video arraignment area. Another party answered and stated "you're on the Work Release" channel.

That's in line with some of the previous traffic I've monitored as officers mention visiting locations to check on individuals.

Just popping in here Mike. Berkeley co. and WVSP have used MED tac 2 for operations at times. I think your encryptions may be the same thing. They pick a different talk group every now and then and use it, rather than stay on one channel? Just a thought.
