You do know what REACT is don't you? (Radio Emergency Associated Communications Teams)

I'm sure their exception is due to the nature of radio traffic.

What activity would be heard on your GMRS feed?

Can't speak for the admins, but my guess is that since its a Skywarn/storm spotter type of stream it is allowed.

Yes that is correct. We do not take the everyday GMRS/FRS chatter as this is not "feed worthy".

Maybe not feed worthy but damn funny to listen to sometimes!

By the same example you can argue most of the amateur band repeater feeds are also not feed worthy, listening to people talk about totally random stuff. But i enjoy listening to that as well!

I was told by a "Live audio admin" that GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) was not allowed to be streamed on Radio Reference, and yet this feed was allowed?

Heartland REACT (462.700) Live Scanner Audio Feed
Like Kendirk said, general GMRS/FRS/MURS feeds are not approved as they would have little interest. We also do not approve CB feeds. All are in the "children band" class as far as feeds go.

REACT is OK as that is in the same class as an ARES, SKYWARN type feed.

In this case, this REACT feed (official description is Heartland REACT (462.700), is an "Official Feed". Meaning Lindsay approved their status. Used by Heartland REACT storm spotters during severe weather and to coordinate public events such as parades, walks, bike rides, Halloween, etc.

While ARES groups go this, a lot of general Amateur radio groups do as well.

"Children band"?

You obviously do not know that there is a difference between GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) and FRS (Family Radio Service).

I do know the the differences.
I have a license.

I am referring to a Live Audio perspective.
These type feeds have little feed value.

There used to be a difference until manufacturers started selling bubble back radios that also included the 8 "GMRS Only" frequencies. Now the constant call tones, roger beeps, etc. have infiltrated what little sacred ground we had left. Granted, I know how to use CTCSS and DCS, so that I don't have to listen to all of that garbage, but I don't think anyone would listen to a feed for very long with all of that nonsense going on.

Maybe two steps above 11 meter "cb" is the difference.:roll:
Definitely not enough radio discipline for an online feed,at least not in my area.

Oh my.....


OP's Question has been answered.

All stream approvals are at the discretion of live audio administration.
