This feed is
provided by me (Isaac) from a scanner located north of
Litchfield IL. The audio is streamed over the internet to
where their servers allow for a large number of users to
listen from anywhere in the world.
When I was 18
years old I along with many other people were heavily
involved in the first responders for a small community. We
had pagers, radios, and even the old fire siren uptown to
notify us of a Fire. Our frequency was only used for our
department and could not hear Macoupin 911. Thatís when I
started getting into scanners. I started my research on
frequencies and met some of the people who still help me
today. Back then, a scanner was not on a priority list for
me and getting one was hard. Once, I finally got one and
found out that you could broadcast it online I was
interested in doing so for other people. I thought instead
of people going out and buying a scanner, I could provide
the frequencies and the stream for them without them having
to buy or having the daunting task of programming one.
