Most of the NAC Tones are very well known, some of the unknowns I believe are Trunk systems.
I forgot one more log as it wasn't in my notes,
Monday 4-16
418.7500 (156.7) South of Atlanta along I-75, Surveillance in the clear with an Aircraft unit, (Flint ?)

This is Tampa DEA unit, very regular in my area of Grady Judd's POLK COUNTY,
plane is based in Tampa.
That is DEA UHF F-4 Air to Ground. (when ORL DEA UNIT is up, ORL uses DEA F-3)
AKA Papa Bear (about a year ago they stopped using that and changed to FLINT)
ORL has been heard using "Rocky" and "Fletcher" for the airplane
