Why provide a live scanner link?

Well, honestly, why not? I have a scanner that for the longest time was sitting around turned off. I happened upon radio reference one day and thought to myself, self since you are not using this scanner, why not stream it oline for others who may listen to it. So that's what I did.

I am a 911 Dispatcher by profession, so to me the last thing I wanted to do was come home and listen to "work". I do every now and then like to tune into what's going on in my home city, but that's usually the extent of it. It's just like anything else, if you are a plumber, that last thing you want to do is come home and do plumbing work.

I used to listen to scanners 24/7, and I wanted to share that with however many people chose to listen to my feed!!

I hope that others, if they have a chance, provide a feed if there isn't one in your area. I like what Radio Reference has done, and is doing.

Ok, that's what I got for now.

Ham Radio Sweepstakes anybody?

I wish I had found this a long time ago, but alas, I know about it now.  GigaParts has a sweepstakes that you can enter daily for a chance of winning a wonderful prize!!  Now, I may end up regretting posting this, because if one of you win and I don't....well just remember you'll have me to thank for letting you know about it and, *cough* you might visit my donate button up above!!  haha

HAAT calculator

Ever want to know what your anteanna height above terrain is? Well, here is the place to find out. Enter your GPS cordinates (get them from QRZ) and then your anteanna height in meters (gotta love google). Put them all together and shake them all about, that's what HAAT's all about!!

First Blog

Ok, let me start this off by saying this...UNDER CONSTRUCTION....there, so now you have it. I am trying to get the layout that I want and I am trying to get everything in order. But I wanted to post something so that in the event that my millions of fans all want to read something or comment all at once, they will have a place to do so.

Seriously though, I'll be happy to have just 1 person comment!!

I really don't know what I'm going to do with this Blog yet, but please humor me and read what I post!!
