Re: Streaming DFES scanner audio

The 6AR / command channel I use has some sort of fault that is only relaying one side of conversations. I've changed it to a 6IP for now, but might have a noisier signal.

Whisky Tango xxx is the handheld radio number. Fleet is most likely what station or what division they're for, like Transit Guards, Wilson Guards and Revenue Officers.
And the above are probably directly related to the unit ID/selcall number they transmit.

Re: Thoughts for discussion

You also have radar and other high-energy RF sources in the vicinity of airports. Scanners have zero front-end filtering on their receivers (being so wideband) so they're going to get swamped pretty easily.

What is Polair 64 used for? I've only really seen it on Gavin's dump1090 instance flying around Perth.
It appears on all ADS-B servers that don't censor their data. I use ADSB Exchange for an unfiltered feed.

Blackspots force Vic firies to suspend parts of Telstra radio network

CFA resorts to old analogue network. The Victorian Country Fire Authority has partially suspended the rollout of its digital radio network to the state's last remaining regions due to coverage issues. https://www.itnews.com.au/news/blackspots-force-vic-firies-to-suspend-parts-of-telstra-radio-networ...

Re: FESA frequencies

Should be a link at Guilderton. Try the high band channel on 164.8875.

Otherwise, All the 6AR/IP freqs are here so plug a few in and listen for activity:

Re: IRC chat dead?

I spent many, many an hour wasting time on IRC back in the day :)

Happy to pick things up on Discord if there's interest, I don't know a lot about it though.

Not that I want to tell you about scanners or radios .... Just had a listen - sounds OK. if the sound is a light crackling soun...
