The radio

Agencies are monitored with a RadioShack PRO-106 scanner that is connected to a multi-band quarter-wave antenna.  The scanner sends audio to a dbx 166xs compressor/limiter/gate; the 166xs provides full quieting between radio transmissions and allows a higher overall audio level.  Audio is then sent to a Hewlett-Packard T5740 thin client via a Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 audio interface.  The scanner provides alpha tag metadata to the thin client over a RadioShack USB-PC cable, and the thin client uses RadioFeed to send the audio & alpha tags to Broadcastify.  Alpha tags are available only in media players which support such tags; examples include Winamp, VLC Media Player, and the Java Web Player.

Feed miscellany

The scanner, compressor, and thin client run on utility power, which is backed up by a two-stage uninterruptible power supply consisting of a battery and an automatic standby generator.  In the event of a utility power outage, the feed will stay up as long as my ISP's network remains online.

Future plans for the feed

A new 25- to 30-foot antenna mast is in the planning stages.  The mast will be equipped with a three-antenna receiving system that should provide a noticeable improvement to the feed's audio quality.  Longer-term plans include adding Marietta Police and Fire to the feed.
