I find BNN to be a very useful tool. I personally don't care that someone allegedly taped Guillani's alpha some time back or whatever supposedly happened. Everyone does something stupid in their lifetime....
THey were pager salesman beforehand, maybe they were just bored. ANYONE can decode alpha pages with the proper equipment. Who wants to or has the time to do that sh** is beyond me, but to each their own....
As for the buff networks, Anyone know if Citywide NY or whatever it's called today has imporved portable coverage in Nassau, and even HAS coverage in Suffolk? It's essentially useless, or was at the Nassau Suffolk border on a portable, never tried on a mobile though.
As far as the brentwood buff club thing, he does not want outsiders in his buff club, it's only for his friends and co-workers, so that's sorta useless to anyone other than his friends at this point...
Someone's gotta have the radio gear, I've got antenna location....
Anyhow.....Anyone get the email re: First Responder thing today?
here it is if anyone did not get it.......
1st Responder Wireless News (1RWN), a subsidiary company of 1st Responder News, already very active, and recognized by most media outlets and Public Safety Officials as the "Industry Leader" in most of the East Coast States, sends incident alerts to pagers, cell phones, PDAs and e-mails.
1RWN has also recently launched our new Dispatcher Rewards Program, the most rewarding incentive program in the industry, which will allow our
Dispatchers to log into an online store and buy products ranging from; subscriptions to our 1st Responder Newspaper; to paid membership into one of our 1st Responder Radio Network affiliates (buff groups with 2-way radio coverage and/or photography groups in Long Island, MA, MD, NJ, NYC, PA and VA with more expected soon...); and so much more from over 300+ prizes (including Books, DVD, Police Scanners, Laptop and Desktop Computers, Clothing, Hunting & Fishing Gear, several hot tubs, a pool, a pontoon boat and so much more!), by using points earned by being active on our system! EVERY Dispatcher on our system will now reap rewards for their hard work, dedication and loyalty!
We are now active in AL, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MO, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VI, VT, WA, WV and Canada. 1RWN has already acquired many well known Paging Notification Services including DC Firecom, TAC-9 Paging, East Coast Paging, Ohio Fire News, Maryland Fire Network, Virginia Fire Net, Toronto Fire Net, Metro Fire Paging and the National Incident News Network (NINN), with several additional under final negotiations! This is a very exciting time to become involved.
1RWN sends instant notifications for any newsworthy Police, Fire, Rescue, Traffic, Weather and Breaking News event within our coverage areas, to pagers, e-mail, cell phones, PDAs and to our online streaming tickers. The vast majority of our Dispatch Staff is comprised of Volunteer and Career Firefighters, Police/Sheriff Officers, Haz-Mat & Rescue Technicians, 911/ALS/Medevac Dispatchers, ALS, BLS & OEM Personnel and Skywarn Spotters, on local, county, state and federal levels.
1RWN has the industry's MOST COMPREHENSIVE Customer Interface selection process which allows our Subscribers to select EXACTLY what information they want to receive, from what areas and to what devices. In other words, you can select to receive JUST building collapse incidents in Yonkers to be sent to your cell phone, with bridge closures in Philadelphia being sent to your pager. You are no longer restricted to receiving ALL alerts from a region, now YOU decide what you receive from the average 16,000 monthly alerts sent from any of the areas we cover - 37 States, Washington DC, or Canada! Why setting for receiving alerts from half a State, areas you aren't interested in, when you can alerts from 1st Responder for the areas (towns and/or counties) YOU want, that YOU specify!
1RWN is actively looking for News Correspondents to become active as Incident Dispatchers for your area. If you are interested, or would like more information, please check out the website at www.1RWN.com
and/or e-mail me at Scott@1RWN.com
Looking forward to hearing from you,
