Everyone knows that there are live scanners for listening at RadioReference.com. Right? On the Wake County live scanner site, one of the fire and EMS feeds has been updated. Previously fed from a scanner at Jeff Harkey's house, it's been moved to a new location.
The feed is named Wake County and Cary Fire and EMS and now includes Cary fire dispatch. The full list of what's being monitored is Raleigh/Wake dispatch, Ops, Tac, and Mutual Aid channels, Cary fire dispatch, and Johnston/Harnett County inter-operational talkgroups.
Couple other notes. The Wake County feed site now includes a "ticker" showing incident reports sponsored by Incident Page Network. That's a neat new addition. And the familiar feed archives are still there. However, a subscription is required to the RadioReference site to access. Not expensive. Maybe $30 per year.
And as it happens, the scanner site has gone dark at the very moment I am blogging about it. Revisit the site a little later, after they have resolved their technical problems.

And being the primary NC/SC Database Admin/Forum Moderator over at RR.com I am always available to answer any radio monitoring/scanner related questions. :)
Happy Monitoring to all!

Can you monitor indvidual channels or is it like it use to be on scanner live, where it just jumps from one to another channel.

Did you ever get the feed working? Or is the link just broken?

Most radio transmissions are broken and garbeled through the site.
Except RPD...They talk and talk and talk clear as day.
