Default Volunteer needed to take over the Cobb County PD scanners

All,
Well, it's that time. I'm moving to Cherokee County next month and I'll be in an area which I'm not sure will allow me to keep providing the same quality Cobb County feeds that I've been offering for almost six years. While I could take the scanners up to Cherokee and see what happens, I think this is a good time to pass the torch anyhow. I have the two BCD996T scanners which are community-owned already, plus the old, otherwise worthless PC that runs them (PC only - no keyboard, monitor or mouse) which I'll donate to the community. What do you need to do? Well, you need to hook it all up to broadband internet, make sure it works and keeps working, and be guided by the egacy ScanCobb community when it comes to changes to the feeds since we all own the scanners through our past monetary contributions.


These are the feeds that I run:
Cobb County Police (North and East)
Cobb County Police (South and West)

So, any volunteers who can take over in the next 3 weeks? Remember, feed providers get free access to RadioReference's premium services.

Thanks,
Andrew

Andrew,

I know a fellow RAV'er in East Cobb who might be able to help you out. I will pass on this information to him and have him get in touch with you.

Slightly off subject but I will be putting together a feed for my county in the next month or so. I have a BCT-15 that I will be dedicating to the project. I have a computer old AMD k6-2 550 with 512 megs of ram and a 40 gig hard drive running linux. Will that be enough horsepower or should I find something else? I can't imagine needing that much of a computer to provide a feed.

I'm in Acworth, and could probably do it, if no one else will

I'm sorry it's been so long, but I've narrowed the list down to the two people who volunteered who were active on ScanCobb.com when the scanners were purchased via donations from the Community. Voting is underway for the next 4 days at:

All,
The equipment is now in the hands of WC4RAV, who will be putting the feed back up shortly.
