• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Would anyone be interested in providing a temporary set of disaster feeds for Amateur Radio HF Communications? We can get you setup ASAP and provide coverage across the entire east coast.

We're looking for someone with excellent east coast HF coverage of 14.325 USB (Hurricane Watch Net) and the Tar Heel Emergency Net on 3923 kHz LSB with backup at
7232 kHz LSB. Additionally, the feed should be able to remain online 24 hours a day over the next few days

If you are interested, please email us directly at:

lindsay@radioreference.com

or

audio@radioreference.com

I should be able to feed 14.325 (and possibly 75m and 40m ham bands). My antennas for 20m, 40m, 75m are pretty good, low noise area.

I had signed up last night to broadcast 14.325. Feed link should be live early evening and be on 24/7. (can switch to indoor antennas also).

My station is located in Southeast PA.

I guess it does. Figured in the east coast here having a local receiver couldn't hurt, not sure where that link is being received.

How do you find it in scanner apps? The multi multi seems to be confusing them.

I've sent a note to him; the audio is way too low....I can barely hear it, either with RR's player or with ScannerLive (made sure it's not a squelch issue). I'm looking at the DB for other likely streams to add to SL...Sit here playing with that rather than the HP1e..

Thanks - just realized that some apps with the Top 50 and/or newest can see it too. But I agree it's not audible.

I just read his notice - possibly keeping the audio low until later:
Status: The Hurricane Watch Net will re-activate when Irene makes landfall Friday evening. You're now hearing normal amateur radio operators using the frequency under normal use until the net resumes on this frequency.

He's probably doing the best possible; It's not like channelized FM; Other ops may be crowding the netfreq. I dragged out my FRG7000, but don't have any wire up outside..Sounded like a DX contest going on 40 meters, may be the same on 20; although you'd hope they'd back off on that to allow the various net ops that will be set up over the next few days.

I have a live feed running on my website now that covers New York City and Long Island Amateur Radio and Red Cross communications. Details on the feed can be found on my website here: http://www.w2lie.net/apps/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?9752

Predictions put the center of Irene passing over my QTH (or a few miles east or west), but that is the center of the "cone of uncertainty". Hopefully the lights stay on, the internet stays up, and I can continue to broadcast this feed.
