• 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:

Just heard the dispatcher who ran the persons DL come back that they had PnP and 10-97 J1. I know what the 10-97 j1 is but what is the PnP?


Many thanks.

"PnP"?

Don't know, but I'll take a guess and say "Past" and "Priors" as in past criminal history (if any) and prior arrest (if any)...

In this part of the US it means nothing...
Again, this is why it is important to post threads in the appropriate forum :cool:

Old AM radio station I was a dj for...WBZB 1090AM...we actually got featured on CNN for being one of the only stations in the US with an all local artist format...it was a good idea in theory but the owner only had so much capital to work with so he sold it when funds ran low and it is now an ESPN all sports affilate....lotta fun to work there though, not the usual radio station politics :cool: I also worked for MetroNetworks/Westwood One for about 4 years...

Additionally, PnP occasionally stands for "Policy and Procedures". Which usually holds/sets agencies guidelines on departmental policies and procedures :)

For what it's worth (though highly irrelevant to this discussion), also PNP transistor - positive collector, negative base, positive emitter. Or as I was taught in order to remember in schematics, Pointing iN Pointer. :lol:
