• 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:

Hi!

2 F-18 c/s Hornet 11 and Hornet 12 were overhead the Netherlands. They visited Stuttgart in Germany for a fuellstop on their way to the Farnborough Show in the UK

F/A-18F 166673/NJ VFA-122 "Hornet 11"
F/A-18F 166675/NJ-134 VFA-122 "Hornet 12"

They were chit chatting on 361.900 Mhz

They often have them do shows, because they rotate the very latest block Hornets through them first, before they go to actual units. Some stay, but a lot go to combat units later. That way the Pilots get to train on the same actual block type that they will start flying in, and the instructors always get the latest block to learn. They also give each delivered plane a final check ride.
