Re: News: Govt under pressure to set up rural fire service

Re: Streaming DFES scanner audio

It is working but seems to be under extraordinary load. Will check it out when I get home.

It's a bit of a challenge to listen - you'll need a trunk tracker that supports MPT trunking (rare), or a SDR TV dongle and some software to glue it all together or you could scan the band to ...

I've built a turnstile antenna using parts easily obtained from Bunnings (aluminium tube, PVC pipe, etc) to receive amateur radio satellites and the ISS.
