Mods - Move this if it's not in the right section, it somewhat fits here but I'm not sure where else it would fit.
I found this app last night called Zello. VERRRRYYYY cool app (for iPhone, Android, as well as PC, and if you get the @work package which is free for the first 5 users, you can get it on some Motorola enterprise devices). It's sort of like a radio simulator, it's all based on PTT, you create a username and then you can create or join existing channels and communicate with others. There's channels all the way from ones named "hi" to ones for FDNY Incidents. You can use it for virtually anything a two-way could be used for (within reason, of course).
There's one RR stream that someone has managed to let stream on there - Allegany County MD. Fire & EMS Radio
- I forgot his name, I'll try to find it after I make this post. Major props to him! I'm not sure if it's streaming the actual RR feed or straight off the scanner, either way it's cool and good quality too.
I thought I'd share it with you guys, see if anyone has it, etc. You guys might find that they use the Motorola talk permit tone pretty neat. When you receive a message it also plays the Nextel two-beep thing.
I made a channel for fire/EMS incidents in CT, check it out; CT_Incidents
. Anyone can join, but I'll block if there are any issues. It's a place to share, converse about, and listen to fire/EMS incidents occurring throughout CT, with reports submitted by users on the channel. My goal is for it to also be good to use as a way for CT residents to communicate about any emergencies happening in the state, or during any storms or disasters and what not. If you're from CT, join! Zello setup is simple and easy. I'm sure you'll like it.
So, that's that... Anyone have anything they'd like to share?
