    I was listening to that live.

    In the middle of the pursuit there was a lot of broadcast traffic between multiple units.

    In the middle of a busy transmission period there was a broadcast of "Terminate pursuit". It definitely sounded like it was an official command, although it was during a low speed, low traffic phase in a back street.

    After the units disengaged the supervising sgt and esta operator went on to verify who issued the command. After about 20 seconds they realised it was unauthorised and re-engaged the pursuit.

    The illegal broadcaster jumped in again and said "dont f*kn kill anyone".

    A few minutes later the pursuit was terminated again, although it was official because the car started driving into oncoming traffic in an attempt to evade police. It took a little while to verify this second time and was only terminated with the chasing unit visually confirming with the supervisors car who called it off.

    About 10 mins later the illegal broadcasters kept jumping in asking for "name checks", but it was obvious it was them because they weren't using proper call signs and were totally ignored by esta. The main confusion was because earlier it was just 2 words (terminate pursuit) straight after another broadcast.

    Then a bit later on after that they kept jumping in dropping the C-bomb multiple times.. sometimes 15-20 times in a row, interrupting normal broadcasting and continued this for 20-30 minutes.

    The major issue here was the car they were chasing was the result of an armed hold up in which a gun was sighted and possibly fired during the hold up. There were multiple times during the pursuit as additional units joined that they were issued a warning that the offender may have a firearm and to make sure they were wearing their vests, as there was a high chance of being shot at.

    The illegal broadcaster would have been well aware of the seriousness of the chase and continued to interrupt.

    Interesting that on Channel 7 news tonight Minister Lisa Neville Minister for Police said:

    This is a contract with Telstra to roll out encrypted digital network, radio network system for our regional police, our CFA particularly in those umm, outer metro areas.
    Hopefully a slip of the tongue re the CFA in the outer metro areas going encrypted, otherwise all those Uniden BCD436PT "listening set" units provided at taxpayer expense to CFA members in those areas will become useless ...

    CFA radio comms will remain as they are today. Open. All informed. No encryption.

    East Gippsland CIU Detectives are investigating pirate transmissions occurring across the emergency services radio network.

    One incident occurred on 29 August, when a transmission occurred which terminated a police operation in Sale.

    It is believed the pirate is operating in the East Gippsland area.

    Anyone with information or who may recognise the voice on the transmissions is urged to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 or East Gippsland CIU on 5150 2662.

    this explains why NSW Police have gone fully P25 encrypted in Sydney and are rolling out encrypted P25 over the country areas...

    Hopefully the fine will be big enough that it'll impede further purchases of any Tele/comms
