Boca Raton, Florida feed testing

I am testing a new feed for the Boca Raton, Florida area.

It will carry railroad audio from both CSX (including Tri-Rail and Amtrak) and FEC (Florida East Coast Railway).

It will also be programmed with Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and Palm Beach County public safety trunked systems.

Because the scanner can be remotely controlled via the attached computer, I will be able to steer it to active incidents should the need arise.

The antenna will be about 30 feet in the air so it should have pretty good coverage. I hope that the receiver does not get overloaded with RF garbage which would limit its effective sensitivity. Only time will tell once I get it on the air next week.

Once it is on the air it will only be temporary. It could be yanked out of there at any time in the future, so don't get too attached to it. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Look for the announcement here when it is online in Boca Raton. For now, it is feeding Fort Lauderdale and Broward County public safety traffic as a test.

That is all.


server back up, mostly

Thanks to quick work by Jeff at the co-lo facility, the Shoutcast server in Dallas is back up much faster than I anticipated. I am currently sending my stream to the old, repaired box while I configure a replacement machine.

Hopefully, the transition will go smoothly.


Server out of service

The server at the Dallas co-location facility has died, so until a replacement can be procured this feed will be unavailable. I will post here when it returns to service.

Happy New Year!
