I have established a scanner feed to cover South Brunswick Township and, to a lesser extent, its neighbors, for the benefit of myself and fellow firefighters who are too far away for decent reception or who don't have scanners. Naturally anyone is free and welcome to listen.
Following are the details of the stereo stream:
|Left Side||Right Side|
|South Brunswick Fire||South Brunswick Police/EMS & Neighbors|
Since the target user for this feed is already familiar with all of the codes, identifiers, and vernacular, I won't get into that here. For more background refer to Mercer County (for Princeton); Middlesex County (for South Brunswick, Monroe, Cranbury, and Plainsboro); and Somerset County (for Franklin).
If you hear something happening in a neighboring town, check to see if there is a feed which better focuses on that town. There are feeds dedicated to and usually in service for Cranbury/ Plainsboro/ Princeton, East Brunswick, Monroe, Rocky Hill/ Montgomery, and Somerset/ Franklin in particular. Check RadioReference.com for updates or others.
DO NOT e-mail me if the feed is offline. I am automatically notified 15 minutes after my feed goes down and reminders are sent out regularly after that. If I am not at home then I am unable to re-establish the feed or make any changes to how it is working (volume & squelch) and what it is scanning.
DO NOT e-mail me if you're having trouble accessing the feed. I could only provide the tips listed below.
Generally if there is a problem on "my" end of things then the feed status will show as "OFFLINE". If the number of users shows as a number and the feed seems dead then either it is especially inactive at the time or there is a problem on the server end of things.
There have been some maintenance sessions and hiccups on the host/server side during which the feed shows as online but it really is not. If I am expecting a protracted outage either of my own doing or as the result of host actions then I will make a note of it on this page, but this is rare. Otherwise you may check the Live Audio Feed Administration Forum.
Most or all conventional channels are being scanned with PL/DPL squelch, to reduce interference. Some conventional channels have been attenuated to reduce the distant traffic coming through on them, and I have programmed only the inputs to certain countywide repeaters such as the police hotline and MedCentral ops, so the received traffic must be local. Trunked talkgroups are scanned in closed/scan mode so new talkgroups will not come through.
