• 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:

W2LIE.net will setup the "Special" feed this weekend to include the following agencies for Hurricane Irene:
  • Nasasu County OEM
  • Suffolk County EOC
  • New York City OEM
  • Nassau County ARES
  • Nassau County RACES
  • Suffolk County ARES/RACES
  • Nassau County SKYWARN
  • Suffolk County SKYWARN
  • New York City ARES
  • Long Island Red Cross
  • New York City Red Cross
Additionally, all W2LIE.net Premium members will be able to listen to these frequencies in the PCR-1000 Remote Radio. You will be able to lock the radio onto a specific frequency or bank, or enter your own frequency. Using Mumble will allow you to hear the audio with almost no delay.

The PCR-1000 will also include a group for LIRR, PD, FD, Long Island Power Authority, Red Cross, as well as others.

If anyone has any additional frequencies they would like programmed into the Special Feed, please let me know.

We plan on turning the feed up early Saturday morning, and users should access the feed and see it's status on this page: [link]

As long as we have commercial power, the special feed will remain active.

Be safe this weekend.

why don't you contact RR and have the feed hosted through them?? your feed will likely get hammered and crash. Also I prefer the player that RR uses, and also have mobile capability.

Because I already send 4 of my feeds to Radio Reference. I choose to send those and keep others "local".
My feeds run off a VPS in Texas, and I have plenty of overhead, I'm not worried about crashing - I'll most likely lose power at home before that even comes close to happening.

I was updating the scan list. details: http://www.w2lie.net/apps/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?9775.post

On a side note, power is out to a lot of Long Island, as of this morning, I seem to be one of the lucky ones who woke up with electricity. My FiOS Connection is acting like dial-up.

The eye of the storm is less than 100mi to our south at this time, so it is still very likely I could lose power at the QTH. If that happens, the "Special" Feed for IRENE will be offline.
