An old analog trunk tracker is less than 100 bucks now on ebay. How about you pickup like 4 of them and provide us with Roswell, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and Johns Creek on separate feeds.I have a dedicated server with 10TB of monthly bandwidth. I can support the Chatcom/John's Creek feed forever if need be. It's been down a while and I miss it. Whoever owns it, or knows who owns it please have them get a hold of me.
Radio Shack Pro-163 Police Fire Emergency 1000 Channel Scanner (GREAT CONDITION) | eBayThat isn't the best option, but I might have to do it if nothing comes up soon. What model should I get? I rather just do a multi-feed like before. Can't I just provide server space for someone instead? We're talking long term here. Please provide as much information as possible, thanks.
Many feed providers stream multiple feeds to RR over regular home DSL/cable internet connections. They only stream to RR and listeners connect to RR's audio relay servers, not directly to them.Providing a live audio feed does not require a dedicated computer - you can use the computer you normally use as long as you leave it running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to broadcast your feed.
Additionally, providing a scanner feed will not slow down your Internet connection - the digitized audio that is sent to our servers uses only a fraction of the upload portion of your connection... the part of your connection which you use very little of anyways. Providing a scanner feed will use approximately 5GB of bandwidth per month.
Our audio feeds are encoded at a sample rate of 22050 Hz, a constant bitrate of 16 or 32 kbps, and either 1 or 2 channels depending on whether the feed is mono or stereo (stereo is used only if two radios are being used to provide the audio).
Where are you located?I really don't want to spend a 100+ on a scanner and also provide a feed forever. I can provide the feed. Can someone donate a unit, or maybe we can raise some money? I can't believe that we can't find someone who can take advantage of my bandwidth.
Perfect, you could monitor anyone on the Fulton TRS including Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Sandy Springs, etc.I live in Alpharetta (near Windward), but I could set up a 24/7 install in a residential home in Roswell near the local high school.
