• 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:

Depending on what you plan on streaming, analog or digital, BCT15, BCT15X, BCD996XT, or BCD996P2. Using the record out jack the audio is preset so you don't have to fuss with audio levels.
Thanks I will looking into this scanner 996p2

I have 11 private feeds and one feed on Broadcastify. (Uniden BCT15, BCD396, and BCD996)

Three of my private feeds are set up for remote control.

I use RemoteFS on an Android phone to control three of them and it works GREAT!
But, I don't do text tags on those three.

Setting up a private feed is easy. BUT confusing at first.

You need to set up port forwarding on your modem for the port(s) you will be using.
You will need one port for audio, and another for text tags or remote control if you want either of those.

You can Google how to do port forwarding for you modem. A sample for my modem is in the link below.
THEN, allow those port(s) through your firewall.

You can refer to my older post here for some help.
http://forums.radioreference.com/st...0-scannercast-port-selection.html#post2296833

In my case, I use ScannerCast for the audio and the FreeSCAN server for remote control.
And RemoteFS on my Android phone.

Since you can only use one program on your radio's port at a time, you either can send text tags OR setup for remote control.
But NOT both at the same time.

Then, since most people don't have static IP addresses and their IP address may change randomly from time to time:
Use something like no-ip.org to get your own host name that will not change when your IP address changes.
Free Dynamic DNS - Managed DNS - Managed Email - Domain Registration - No-IP

Then, you would access your feed using something like this:
http://myfeed.no-ip.org:12345
(replace 'myfeed' with your host name and the 12345 with the port number you set up for the audio)

Rich

Setup the port for ScannerCast:




Start FreeSCAN and then start the FreeSCAN server for remote control:
Port 1300 is the default. You can leave at that or change it if you have reason to.



Edit to add an image of my desktop while listening to a LOT of my private feeds.
