• 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:

That is the first pd web site I have seen with a live dispatch. Trust your scanner and not they web site becuase I do not see a pd putting out a live broadcast of any channel. I could be wrong, but will check it out myself.

San Carlos PD Live Audio vs. Live Radio

I live right next door to San Carlos. SCPD can still be heard on 488.4875, but I get the impression that something changed with their repeater, because the signal seems about 2 'S' units less than what I'm used to. The online stream does correlate with with the over the air signal, but is delayed by about 10 seconds.

ROg the NEt Delay....

ROG that!!
I was advised it may have the interenet daelaying it
Buut I rationalized that because I have a IBM Thinkpad 20
With WIFI at the Local Cafe' LOL
It wouldn't be as delayed..
I guess its them (San Carlos), delaying for "security" purposes ..
Anyways thank you SOOO

Quite possibly just a product of whatever equipment and software stands between their dispatch consoles and your computer. If it was a 15 minute delay, I could see a "security" argument much more easily. Either way, doesn't matter, just an observation.

The delay is just a function of the technology. It takes time to convert the analong to digital, send it thru the internet, and then convert it back.

The biggest thing determining the delay is the amount of buffering your player is using. You can usually get into the program settings and reduce the buffer time, at the potential expense of dropouts or pauses in the audio stream.

www.publicsafetyfeeds.com is adding a San Mateo P25 and conventional feed in the next week.

Both WinAmp and Teamspeak.

Might want to try that once it's up and running.

It's going to have both trunk and conventional traffic.
