• 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:

Yeah they did, AIR-1 is part of the mayor's "Operation Phoenix" anti-crime plan. The hours of operation are swing shift, Wed thru Sat. It's a Robinson R44 the PD contracted for 90 days ($98,000) from California Aviation Services. It's equipped with an MDT, PD radio, mapping system, a 15 million candlepower "nightsun", and a FLIR infrared system. It has a top speed of approx 140 mph, and it's based over at SB Intl Airport (old Norton AFB) and along with the pilot, a SBPD officer is on board. I guess using SBSO's 40-King was getting kinda expensive for the PD.

Does Air 1 have a seperate TGID for calling or is it all was on the dispatch channel? I also read in the daily bulleten that is on a 3 month trial basis with the City. we'll see how it goes. I know that 40 king sure stays busy

Yep, it's on a 90 day trial. Air-1 uses all of the regular SBPD channels. The Zebra units are the special task force units assigned to the "Operation Phoenix" crime areas as is Air-1, and are typically heard on 10-SPBD-4 (TG: 20880). Air-1 is usually flying patrol during the swing shift hours Wed-Sat, so they don't need to be "bumped" out of the hangar on a call to call basis like 40-King does.
