A fire started this am in the Santa Cruz Mts and has grown to 1,000 acres according to CH 2 TV from the Bay Area. No air tankers are currently flying this fire. Cmd 1 (151.355) T9, Tac 2, Tac 6 and 151.295 are being used by Cal Fire. The fire is moving SE from Summit Rd toward the Gilroy area. Gusty winds, but not low humidity. Not looking good.

Looks like they are going to make a stand on Summit Rd. County Fire is also using White 1 for coordinating incoming Strike Teams. Staging is now being changed to the church on Corollitos Rd.

Somewhere in this room. Right now, you're very col
Wow it's just huge now with plenty of fuel to keep it going. Not good!

Wish I could use Teamspeak here at work! Anyone have a windows media stream of the scanner? I tried publicsafetyfeeds.com but that feed's down apparently.

It's my feed and even I can't listen to it here at work because of the
firewall .:evil:

I'll see if I can get an IceCast feed up tonight, but It will be after 6 pm

IF I don't get paged-out on this.

I'll also put remote on that computer, so I can control the PCR-1000 that's
running the feed, and add freqs on the fly. Also swing the beam south.

This will be a campaign fire for at least a week.

Somebody summarize the freqs at the end of the day, and I'll add anything that's missing from my lineup to the PCR.

San Jose also working something at south end of their district.

No CalFire ground resources available.
