• 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:

Anyone interested in these? Before I go and spend the money on a dedicated digital scanner for CR, I thought I'd check here. I all ready have the Dubuque and area feeds.

If there is enough interest, I can provide feeds from:

Cedar Rapids
Clinton
Davenport
Iowa City
North Liberty

Anyone that has a scanner they could dedicate, a broadband internet connection and would like to provide a feed for their area, let me know, and I'll provide the server and the computer to get it online.

Iowa city is TRUNKED, but analog, isn't it?

Marion is Analog Conventional at the moment, but may be changing

I have some interest, as i can't receive much here at my desk at work.... though i don't have any scanners to donate at the moment.

I cant reliably get the blairsburg repeater for IHP

Online feed

I would be greatly interested in a online feed of CR and Iowa city. I would be interested in helping in any way just to be able to listen.
Thanks

Any thoughts on a Waterloo feed?
Waterloo could be done, just don't know of anyone that could host it. I just know people that can host the feed in those towns I listed.

Iowa City is trunked analog. I have trunking and vhf/uhf scanners I can use for some of the feeds, but I'm hoping to get a digital so that I can get the CR feed and pick up Marion digital when it goes too. The original idea was to host both feeds from North Liberty, but I may be able to get them both downtown. The point I'm at now is finding a cheap Digital scanner if possible. I don't really have a use for a digital here in the Dubuque area so the scanner would be dedicated to the feed. If anyone wants to donate to the fund to get one, I'll make sure they get priority access to the feed.

That sounds kinda neat.
What's up homo? It's ben from ELB.



Anyway, if someone were to get a dedicated server for Iowa channels only, I could stream Marshall County, Marshalltown PD. Or all of Tama County.

Interested

I am definitely interested.

Depending on your location, you noted Davenport AND Iowa City both, I wondered about Muscatine, we have quite a bit of Radio Activity here.

Muscatine's Fire and Police Departments are on a Motorola Astro Trunked Radio System however. The Muscatine County Sheriff's Office and the Countywide Fire Channels are Analog Conventional.

I know this is an old post but I know a lot of people that would tune into a FD feed - been searching everywhere for something and coming up empty handed for a long time
