• 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:

Hey folks, so I want to feed audio from my scanners/recievers(already am, link below), or even an RTL dongle if it would be easier..and have that audio recorded, and auto archived for say a 30, or 60 day period, and then automatically deleted.. I read a post elsewhere about doing something similar with 2 RTL dongles, I think it was for a fire/ehs system(P25) but it was done on a linux/ubuntu machine if I recall..it would even display it on a webpage with date, time, and talkgroup information.

Is there any software that would make this happen easily, for windows + scanners/audio from a receiver?

I know I could feed to Broadcastify, but they do not allow military communications if I understand the rules correctly, and that is mainly what I am "feeding". Its really just for myself and the few folks who follow the refueling up this way, so I don't need/want anything too complex.

Any suggestions, links or ideas are appreciated.

Since you mentioned the RTL dongles, I'm moving this to the SDR forum where hopefully you can get some answers.

The Utility Monitoring forum is for non-HF broadcast/non-ham traffic below 30 Mhz. You would be well served not to look at only the new posts - this will reveal all the forums we have on this board.

What kind of system are you looking to listen to? trunked/analog trunked/digital or plain analog?
I do trunked/digital with logging and private streaming
logging is stored in a folder, each mp3 file contains a conversation from one radio to another. Files are named like "[Example County Police Dispatch] [Console] [2013-##-## ##:##:##].mp3"

UniTrunker(preview build)->SDR#->DSD->RadioFeed->Streamtastic

Result: I can leave the SDR server on all night, come back in the morning and see which new unknown TGs have showed up, what's been said, which helps with the logging when I submit into the RR database.

Hey Tyler, thanks for the reply.

I am trying to listen to straight analog (UHF AM) communications from aircraft to aircraft..and I've gotten it set up now to record, and log the traffic using Freescan, combined with Radiofeed, and folder sharing within Radiofeed.

It is somewhat automated, but I was hoping to find something that deletes the audio after a certain amount of time..My reason, I could end up away for a month or two at a time with a new job(maybe longer), so I need something I can just leave running for the entire time I'm gone, but not totally fill up my hard drive in the process.

If there are no file locks, you can use task scheduler to run a batch file that deleted your file(s) at a set amount of time

Thanks again Tyler! I really should have thought of that on my own lol.. I guess I'm thinking about too many other details with the move and all.

I may not even need to delete as often as I am thinking about, and have at least 1TB of usable space..so I should be fine.
