• 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:

I heard a new callsign on ZLA's UHF high altitude sectors yesterday. The callsign was Popgunxx, don't remember the number at the end. I've looked at various online callsign lists and don't see "Popgun" listed anywhere. Does anyone know who uses that callsign?

TOPGN84, a F16 from Navy Fallon to Miramar. :)
Could be... That route would have put him right overhead. Thank you for solving a mystery. Sure sounded like a "p" at the beginning, But AM isn't always high fidelity.

I gotta say, though, "popgun" would make a great call sign, especially for an A10 or AC130. Thanks. :)
