Default What does KMA mean?

There's all kinds of callsigns for the "new" (mostly UHF-T, mostly
digital) LAPD dispatch frequencies. KMA367 was THE callsign fom 1948
into the late 1950s, and is still in existence for a handful of
mostly-seldom-used freqs.

"KMA" is merely a shorthand for KMA367 that developed over the years
when officers (not dispatchers) would indicate that they were finishedd
with a relatively lengthy message.

It's still used out of habit, even though the KMA367 callsign hasn't
been used for patrol frequencies in almost 22 years.

With the right inflection it most certainly does ;-)
