• 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:

This site has only those feeds which local scanner owners provide. It's not a substitute for a scanner radio. There may not be a live feed for the system you want to hear, but then again - there just might be.

Go to the Live Audio section and drill down to your state and county, looking for the system you're trying to hear. If it's not there, there's nothing you can do other than go buy a scanner. Radio Reference does not solicit feeds nor provide them directly. It's totally up to users to provide feeds.

You might try your state's forum area and ask if someone has or can put up the feed in question.

Hi Amy,
This site is primarily a database/listing of frequencies to aid in programming a physical scanner.

As for live audio feeds, as Bob mentioned above they are provided by individual scanner owners. Only a fraction of what is listed in the RR database is available as a live audio feed.

There is no dedicated feed for Branchburg Township, NJ; but it may be part of one or more "general area" feeds such as Somerset County, central NJ, etc. (if it is a public safety agency). If it is not public safety, such as a public works dept, then it will not be part of any live feed. If this is the case, or you want to listen to only that frequency itself, then you will have to monitor it on a physical scanner (not online).

Hope this helps :)

Amy, are you trying to listen to a scanner, or a scanner feed for your county? You should be able to find an analog conventional scanner at Radio Shack for under $100 that would pick up that frequency.
HTH,
Larry

Amy, 200+ NJ audio feeds ar offline due to Irene. If Branchburg Township is one of them could be why.
