    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.

Damn, you're about 4 weeks quicker than me.

I suppose certain aspects of the radiocommunications law could be interpreted to restrict online scanner feeds (ie. do not rebroadcast transmissions) there are likely a few ways around it. There are quite a few people with experience with online feeds here including Terry (ve3nsv) and they can likely give you a bit more info.

Well, as far as I'm concerned it wouldn't be a 'rebroadcast' per se if the server was password protected...that way you could also restrict access to people you trust. Of course, it kind of defeats the purpose of having an online scanner feed...

I know of plenty of people with open feeds here in Ontario and, as far as I know, none of them have ever had any legal problems. The old 'Scanont Saying' still applies: discrete is elite. It's fine to advertise to scanner listeners and your friends, but you probably don't want it to become common knowledge in the general public...

But I'm sure you already know all of that.

By the way, will you post the link to you TS server? I had been planning to set up a feed from my buddy's place in Tara but I recieve the Owen Sound site better from that location. I still may put up a feed with Saugeen Shores PS, West Grey PS and the local FDs, since it looks like you've got Fleetnet covered.

I have set mine up with easystream for Peel region using my 785 not sure if its getting past the router though. If you want to try it out here are the settings...

peel.dynalias.net
Audio Port: 8100
Data Port: 8101


Currently is set for Peel Police and Mississauga and Brampton Fire.


Let me know if the router is allowing it out... Thanks

Ok well the TS ip is: 38.99.129.213:8862 (The port number may change in a few weeks i will keep u guys updated)
and i've password protected the channel with Scanner. Ask me with a pm and i will give u the password.

I am using a BC- 296D to do the feed so its digital.

P.s: the Teamspeak is actually our gaming group's so dont worry if some of them dont know what u talking about :). Not everyone is a scanner enthusiasist.

Hmm.. I would suggest using Teamspeak as there is no bandwith issue.. if u want it hosted.. i can host it..

I am actually thinking of creating a dedicated Teamspeak for scanner enthusiast for Ontario.. I can provide my area feed.. but rest i will need help with. :)

Soo if there is interest.. Let me know.
