Live Online Scanner for Potter and Randall County

Cory Elliott, KD5ROK, has assembled and hosted the only live online scanner in the Amarillo area. Cory’s scanner feed covers Potter and Randall County for 24/7 coverage of local public safety radio traffic. This is a handy resource which allows you to turn your computer, or smart phone–through the use of applications, into a virtual scanner. Using your computer or phone as a scanner will free up your ham gear to be dedicated to ham radio use so you don’t miss a single transmission. Also, while traveling out of the area, you will still be able to monitor events in the Amarillo area in real time. It is worth noting, that Cory has added an audio compressor which ensures that the audio output levels are the same for all transmissions heard on the feed. Without the compressor, some transmissions may be extremely loud while others are barely heard. This is a very clean installation and a useful resource in our area, and we thank you for your work, Cory.

Equipment used: Motorola Radio, Comet GP-3 antenna on a tower at 30 feet with LMR-400 coax, and also an audio compressor and EQ for audio shaping.

Amateur Radio Applications for Motorola Droid Phones

I don’t intend to portray myself as a Motorola Droid salesman, and I don’t intend to compare the Droid to the iPhones at all. I certainly do not intend to start any debate over such trivial matters. However, I do own a Droid, and I have found many useful applications that are designed for the Droid that are related to Amateur Radio and I thought I would share them. Maybe someone can share some useful applications designed for the lesser quality, and less reliable iPhone.
