eye-mind tricks.  every time I see this thread, I see "scaMMer school" and wonder how the mods haven't yet shut down the thread  :rofl:

Luck is what happens when Preparation meets Opportunity

Prepping makes even a hurricane just an inconvenience.

  After listening to the hundreds of requests for directions to a local Ham Fest with only seconds between call ins....I think LISTENING is a long lost art or skill. People gain little information when their mouths are open.
Why is it that the same people who use science to convince you of Global Warming,refuse DNA Science that proves you are male or female.

Government solves few problems that it does not first create.

Stop complaining about life and start Celebrating it .

I've reached the age where there is little left to learn the hard way.

If you had only one year,one month,or one day...Would you live your life differently?

Radios are pointless without someone trained to use them.

This has inspired me to program my old Uniden BCT8 and start up an online feed. 
https://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/27342

Also, late last night a local sheriff's deputy was shot and killed when responding to a home invasion burglary.  I was alerted to this not by scanning police dispatch (I currently lack digital trunking capability), but from local TV news van and helicopter radio traffic.  The TV news crews are much more chatty than cops, gave some color commentary about where to position cameras for their broadcast, and other details about the scene.

Will do.  I'm following these instructions:

https://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/Raspberry_Pi_Broadcastify_Build#Method_1:_Darkice_Install_and_Configuration_.28Recommended.29

Also, when you apply to broadcast a feed they ask that you certify the feed is public safety, amateur radio, or otherwise not commercial.

This is a small city airport, with mostly single engine planes.  Not very busy, but it was an easy project and got me tinkering with linux again.
