    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:

I've searched around for an answer to my question but couldn't find it. Sorry if it's right in front of me, my google-fu is not strong today.

I'd like to set my feed alerts by a less manual means. For example, if Skywarn is activated, I'm out the door. I can set up a physical button that I can hit on my way out, telling my Raspberry Pi (linux box) to set my scanner feed alert to Skywarn is activated. The problem is I cannot find any API documentation or otherwise on what my RPi should to to set the alert. I'm using Ezstream to send my audio to Broadcastify.

Any suggestions?
