LAPD Air Support Starting to Use Encryption

Starting a few days ago, several club members noted that LAPD Air Support began using encryption on their channel. It’s currently unknown if this is activated by the radio user or if their radios are being “strapped” (mandatory, always on encryption). There are still a few helicopters who are transmitting in the clear. It’s also unknown what algorithm  is being used. I’ll try to post more info as it becomes available.
