Is anyone streaming from the Huntington/Ashland/Ironton area? I'd really like to be able to listen to what's going on in that area.

You can always "Google" scanner freqs to. Ham radio freqs for your area are invaluable - as they talk about emergencys, bad / sever weather, opne and closed roads - severe weather sitings. Ham radio freqs are great freqs to have , and sometimes transmit more/better info than public safety agencys.

Thanks for the links, but I'm in Chillicothe, Ohio - so I likely can't pick those up on my little RadioShack PRO-76 scanner. That's why I didn't know if anyone was streaming a scanner down there on the internet.

EDITED: I do see where the FOP site has a link to listen live, but it's under construction.

Good scanning has to do with the proper freqs..which are almost useless unless you have a good outside antenna. Hand held scanners, mobile scanners with teh built in antenna are OK if you are listening to local freqs on duplex. Simplex freqs - tactical channels ; that do not go through a repeater....most usually you can listen to if you have a good outside antenna. Even a simple 35 watt mobile radio on simplex, you can listen to if the conditions are right.

Simply put -- -- -- - Get a outside antenna.

Eventually down the road, get a few scanners. One to listen to local channels, one to listen to ouside and federal agencys, and one strictly dedicated to search. If you are not familiar with current radio systems, find and join a local radio club. Give you a hint - P25 is the wave of the future - - - So get P25 capable scanners. Most are expensive now, but as P25 ages..I expect P25 scanners to come down in price.

Hope this helped........................FF-Medic !!!!
