• 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:

around here they use what seems to be a slightly modified version of the
'Missouri State Highway Patrol -- Uniform Ten Codes'

10-6 means busy (out on a call or something like that)

10-6F might mean...
Busy, Traffic Stop
or busy.....


can't really begin to guess, not even sure if they use the same set of 10 codes in your area.

Believe you are correct regarding 10-6. F-Frank most likely is a code letter (Frank being the Phonetic for letter F, like ham for A = alpha etc). It designates either a location or a function like meal break.

Most likely, they're telling dispatch that they will be busy out of the car e.g. putting fuel (F) in the unit. They will change periodically just to keep all the scanner monitors guessing. Listen long enough and it's not too tough to decipher.

Seems to be strictly a localized code...not state-wide.
