• 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:

Members,

I'll be moving again soon, back to Hays County, which means I'll no longer be able to host the New Braunfels Fire Department audio feed. This feed will be taken down in mid-late September. Thanks for all those who listened on a regular basis (basically Don F.).

I'm looking at hosting one or two feeds from my new location. First, I can say with a good degree of certainty I'll host a Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office feed (channels 1 & 3), at least while they remain analog. Second, if I can manufacture my 900 MHz yagi (a project I've put off for two years at least), I'll host the San Marcos Police Department feed again. I've had some requests for this one, and as long as the signal is good I'll host this again. The other antenna option I have is an 800 MHz pigtail that might be decent, but I'm not counting on it.

Thanks for putting up with my gypsy-like hosting habits, and I look forward to offering at least another (if not two more) feeds again in the near future.

Belton is coming up on October 1st, and I've seen 800 and 900 yagis go for as little as $10 there. For monitoring purposes 800 and 900 antennas are essentially identical, so don't hesitate to grab an 800 antenna if the price is right.

This stinks...

I had an all time high listener count today for a brush fire. I know this feed will be missed in times of floods and more fires.
