Re: Air TAC channel?

TG 24400

I have been hearing some activity on this talk group the last couple of days. It is listed as the County Disaster Med Strike Team HazMat Tac 2.

I didn't see your message in time to get down there.

There's a photo of one from the same company taken at LAX in 2007 by Jeff Saxton here:

Re: NewsChopper 7/39

That's interesting. Thanks for the info.

The pilot still identified himself to the tower as TV 739 though. Maybe that was just habit.

Re: SCANNER QUESTION

The Pro-96 doesn't have priority for talkgroups, only for conventional channels. I don't know of any trunking scanner that does.

NewsChopper 7/39

I wish they hadn't gone in the middle of the night. You'd think they have something to hide. :-)
