    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.

I am wondering if there is anyone who has thought about streaming a feed online for Lexington Fire/EMS. I lived in Lexington for awhile, and enjoyed listening to the radio traffic. I have now moved to South Carolina, and obviously can no longer listen to Lexington. I am interested in setting up a feed, but not sure how that would work out with me not actually being there except for once or twice a month.
Anyways, I just wanted to throw the idea out there.

Thanks.

We're also looking for someone to establish a live feed of Lexington FD. We will be more then glad to host it on our TeamSpeak server, at no cost!

I half played with the idea of setting up the equipment at a friend's place, during one of my visits to Lexington, however I would have no way of re-starting or troubleshooting the feed after the initial startup, as I spend most of my time in South Carolina.

How hard is it to do? Once I get a scanner that I can pick up the FD on I could with a little help.

The way I've connected my scanner to my PC (for recording purposes) is just via a cable from Radio Shack. It goes into the audio/headset plug on the scanner and then into another audio plug on the back of the actual computer. There's software available that will let you stream. I am not extremely knowledgable about the software end of it, so maybe someone else could provide some info for you.
I have a certain computer terminal that I am setting up just for streaming my scanner. One of these days I'll get around to streaming (Greenville SC EMS and Fire)
