I'm not certain, but it sounded like Alex Calder, Helicopter Reporter & Photographer at KTLA-TV & Aerial Photographer / Camera Operator at Angel City Air .

I'm not usually awake as early as he does his reporting. I'll listen next time I get a chance and report back.

Mobile Relay Associates sounds familiar. Is this the outfit that threatened a lawsuit; because somebody posted their public FCC license information and operating frequencies on this website? One of the members found a complaint; where these law breaking whiners had been fined for use of illegal linear amplifiers...

Talkgroup info is not public information and is not published by the FCC.

I wonder if the mods realize leaving this thread up might lead to a lawsuit from MRA? They have a lot more money than Lindsay does

Folks, I removed the LCN and talkgroup info per the sites current policy on this system.

Please refrain from posting further LCN and talkgroup info in the forums on this system. Also, please do not debate this issue. The site has made a decision on this and it's not open for debate :)

Thanks for your understanding :cool:
