    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.

Hey everyone - It's been awhile since I've been here on RR and in the hobby for that matter. I've been getting the itch to get back in to it, and I've been thinking about setting up a streaming link for Aircraft freqs here in Omaha. I know there's already online streaming for both Omaha PD and Railroad in the area, but not aircraft AFAIK so I think it would be a good addition.

Any interest? Any ideas on what I should monitor (other than Eppley and Minneapolis Center)?

Also, I need to get a new radio too since I sold my Pro-97 awhile back... EBay here I come :D

I'll keep everyone updated.

I like listening to PAR...

135.35 for Offutt...or at least last time I checked...

I know...I know...PAR is lame...

So goes it...I can admit it...

The stream is now active! I picked up another Pro-97 on eBay last week and got everything up and running on a spare PC. I ended up building a dipole and mounting it outside - so far it's been working pretty well.

As far as monitoring Eppley itsself, the way I ended up making things work is a little weird - since I live in Millard, I can pick up Millard Approach great. I cannot hear Eppley tower at all - only the pilots side of the converstation. Apparently the Millard freq also simocasts Eppley Approach/Omaha approach so I end up using Millard for the tower side of the conversation and Eppley's frequency for the Pilot side of the conversation. It's odd, but it seems like it's working well.

Also, I limited the stream to Eppley, Millard and Offutt Approach and Departure only to try and keep things somewhat uncluttered. I decided that I might change things up and switch to Sarpy County Public Safety Freq's (and storm chaser freqs) during Severe WX, but we'll see how things go with this now. I'm still tweaking things here and there, but for now I am happy with the way it is setup.

Anyways, check it out:

Sounds to me like it's scanning Bellevue PD at the moment.
It is. :) I decided I wasn't happy with the the reception. Being that I'm in an apartment, I'm limited on what antennas I can put up. I didn't want to stream something mediocre so I decided I would stream Sarpy instead. Plus I think there would be a little bit more interest...

Very nice...I wish I got ORION as well as I do Sarpy from out here in Millard...although things have improved with the 396 since the "upgrades"...or maybe it's just a psychosomatic thing...
