Default Ames Residents.....READ THIS

When I move to my new house, I'm hopeful that I will still get great reception on my Police Scanner....If not....is anyone in Ames willing to connect my Scanner/Computer to their home network?....provided that you get better reception from your location....

I think a simple yagi should solve any issues, if you even have any.

The problem...Ames has three towers...Story Co, ISU, and Ames. I will be right in the middle of all three. If I really had to....I would aim my line-of-sight to the Ames tower, but I would sacrifice ISU and Story.

I seem to be able to pick up Ames pretty well. The feed sounds pretty much the same. I had to remove (NWS Des Moines area MICRN Severe Weather Net) due to no longer having line-of-sight withe the Alleman, Iowa tower. A fallback feed exists....SOMETIMES?? (NWS Des Moines area MICRN Severe Weather Net)




The Des Moines National Weather Service MICRN (Metro Incident Command Radio Network) is a multi-county system that connects dispatch centers, emergency management, public works, and other municipal agencies with the National Weather Service in Des Moines.

This sounds an awful lot like Broadcastify audio, but no source given: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/art...ting?frontpage

Nevermind, they added it on there. They said they forgot.
