• 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:

Hello,...

I have owned the Davis Vantage pro2 for almost a year Now and it works great!

Using it with the SERIAL Weatherlogger and Weather Display Software,along with Nexstorm Lite but am Planning on purchasing the full version of Nexstorm in future and have the Nextsorm Storm VUE added to the page soon. I also own some Maximum Inc Weather Equipment which includes the WEATHERMAX home weather Station and also some of their brass round instruments which include Merlin & Rain Watch Digital Instruments.

as for the Weather Underground PWS...I have all my Data being sent to CWOP and Weatherunderground at 10 minute intervals.





Happy Easter All...Chris/alienxp

Hello...

I am unsure which part of the forum I should place this, but I wanted to mention that I now have my Live Scanner Feed online and working within my weather website.

The live scan feed was setup using icecast and simplecast, along with the java applet to get the winamp web based display on my page. The live feed could also be listened to by following the links on the bottom part of my The page.

The scanner page wont be online 24/7 as of yet, becuase I am still using the trial version of simplecast and it times out every 4 hours, therfore needing to restart it manually in order to get the feed going again. as you can guess..this will be hard to restart if I am at work or sleeping...LOL. so for now live feed is usually online temporarily around 4pm-11pm. daily.

The Scan wareham Mass feed can be viewed here:

please note you may have to accept the digital signature stuff first time you visit the page, afterwards it will not prompt you for this.

if anyone has any comments, suggestions, idea's or whatsoever...feel free to vioce your thought's/

Thanks for looking...Chris
