• 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 is my remote listening post. I have it patched into a personal audio feed for friends and family. In addition I can listen to it through the amplified speakers, or through a bluetooth audio stream, both of which are real time. I can also monitor and remotely control the scanner through a separate feed that I have set up for myself only. This allows me to only need one scanner for both home and away and my smartphone is much more convenient to carry around. I also run recording software so that if I miss something I can go back and listen to it.

Someone could set that up in a closet on the second floor or attic space to take advantage of the elevation without the need to go up on the roof! I used to do that over my network with a Uniden.

What software are you using for this. I have been thinking of the same thing but for mobile application.

Thanks

For the server software I'm using WIN500. There is a free client available, for Windows PCs, from the same author (Starrsoft). For my Android phone I use a 3rd party client from The Software Handyman as Starrsoft doesn't make one available.

Forgot to mention I connect to the feed computer via a VNC. I can also use this method to control the scanner, by accessing the software and reading and writing to it, but it's not nearly as convenient as using the clients.
