• 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:

boatpix flies around and takes pictures of boats underway.

They then try to get the owners to purchase the pictures.

Going forward should be some nice high priced boats in the tournament to photograph.

I see those Hawkeyes almost daily sometimes passing through NJ. They go up the Hudson River then back down to Chambers NAS, VA. I'm guessing getting in some flying time. Sometimes they show on ADS-B. Callsign is normally Greyhawk.

Surprisingly, the ground units from the two counties had comms problems, even though their radios are capable of interoperating. SMH.

Starting 8/1 there has been a new one orbiting HGR (likely SNC facility related) - A3E5A8
Code for N350JU which isn't registered to anything. Listening to HGR tower from yesterday I hear CAVE54 inbound around 1530Z. Those tracks are a PITA to make out start and finish times. Once on the ground tower asked if t-storms were going to wash them out in the afternoon.
