• 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:

Every so often I'll listen to Southern/Central Illinois or the St. Louis Area on Teamspeak. If the person would ever get it back online, there's one from about an hour south of here I'd like to listen to.

Is there a list here on RR of links to diff. scanner feeds? That'd be something nice to have if it isn't already here. I know there are tons.

Why, http://www.scancobb.com, of course! Part of it could be that it originates from my shack, but also I like it because Cobb County, GA (just NW of Atlanta) just went digital, and it offers a chance for those to listen who can't afford digital scanners. Also, Cobb is 100% in-the-clear, even SWAT, so it can be exciting at times.

I enjoy these HF feeds. Some even allow users to select the frequency:

http://www.smeter.net/receive/receive.php

3840 kHz provides a great deal of entertainment when then things are slow on the night shift. Art Bell fans would probably take offence, as they ridicule him quite a bit. A rival group, who weren't happy with all the antics, left 3840 and can now be found on 3765 kHz.

My favorite online scanner is the DXTuner located in Corona and the Riverside County Fire feed located at Matt Logic.

Favorite online HF feed is the Rommele DXTuner.
