I agree! I heard that from some people I know. I don't think it cuts air time down sounds the same.I can get the list I've just been too lazy to do it. They only use a few letters, so it's not like they are going to show up with a bunch of new letters if something major happens. I grumbled about it when they first started using it since we are on "Open dispatch" with is supposed to be 100% open with no coding to facilitate ease of communications with mutual aid units. The reason they did it was to "cut down" on some of the routine traffic. It sounds like they are using more air time to cut down to me.
