Re: Shooting in Oakland OMG

Heard OPD calling in and tailing a group of OMG the other day. Didn't think law enforcement did that anymore, but evidently they do. And I guess I can see why.

NACs and 396T Scanning

I've been reading a little about NACs and am a little confused and can't find anything on the forums.

Or are NACs just something that makes listening to them easi...

Re: Bait Car SDPD.

"Hope some of the "captures" make it to video. Other TV shows in the past have put them on the air. it sure is funny watching and listening as the crooks trying to figure out what is happening. Love watching the "bad guys" getting caught! :lol:

Re: BCD396T 3.02.02.scn

I was so involved in trying to get the firmware updated, as well as frustrated, that I couldn't do much of anything else at the time. However I'm scanning now that I finally got through that! Listening, now, while doing some reading and paperwork.

Re: BCD396T 3.02.02.scn
