    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:

Hi, I'm not sure how many of you listen to WCCCA. But I listen when I get a chance. I was wondering if anyone knew what 10-52 and 10-53 mean in Washington County. I know that all the 10 codes are posted around on the web, but these codes are usually different from county to county. The dispatcher always asked the police officer if he is 10-52 and the officer usually responds "I'm Affirmative." And then sometimes they say "And I am 10-53." Any help would be appreciated.

10-52 "Are you okay?"
10-53 "Don't ask me any more"

-52 is a "Status Check". -53 says that there is no more reason for dispatchers to reset their timers.

And... even though the rest of joescanner.com is pretty stale, the Washington County 10-Codes should still be okay.

Oh thanks joe, I didn't know you had those on your website. Oh also I wanted to ask you if those codes on your website were all the 10 codes they use?

Well, the information is quite dated. It originated when WCCCA first put up their own "official" list for scanner listeners (you can find it at http://mail.wccca.com/tg.html) -- they posted that, and then I sent an e-mail to somebody there asking for the codes.

That was the list I got back.

As far as I know that list is still current and hasn't been modified.... but I don't listen to Washington County much anymore, as I live way on the other side of town now and reception is scratchy at best. Every once in a while when I know there is something "big" happening I will listen. And, of course, at work, we have Yagis attached to our emergency radios that point at Council Crest... so that makes it much easier to listen in when I'm there.
