From W2LIE.net, Monitor Long Island, Inc, Long Island Fire Photos.com, and now East Coast Pagers, we wish to thank all those who protect our country and our cities every day.  We pray for those who are still suffering, and those who have lost loved ones in the attacks.  We salute those who went over seas to bring justice to those who waged war on us.  I hope everyone spends a few minutes today thinking about those that they love and take time to reflect on another year that has passed.

Archived audio in Jeoparday .....Again

theft.gifThere is a pretty popular saying out there about failing to learn from history and being doomed to repeat it.    Well, I do believe this one has happened yet again.

Back in 2014, we lost our audio archive drive.  It was a 3TB Seagate drive that was powered off of a RaspberryPi.    The plan was to start backing up all the audio and serving the data forever.

It seems that 3 years later, the replacment audio drive has failed.  Just as it was the last time, I cannot get the drive to mount.   For a long time, a little birdie kept chirping - buy a 2nd drive and mirror the first.  

At this time I've decided to retire the Pi.   It was a great little solution, but the drives seem to be the problem.  Since I needed to start over and run two drives, I opted to buy a true NAS solution.   I'll now have a full mirrored backup, thanks to RAID, and I hope that history no longer repeats itself.

If I can recover the data, I'll try.   But what have we learned thus far?

That bird should have chirped louder, or maybe I should have listened.

ProScan feeds updated to 12.2

bc898t.jpgAt W2LIE.net, we are using Proscan software to source the NCFD-East, NCPD, SCPD, and SCFD-West audio feeds. In addition to listening to the audio, uses can see a virtual scanner on their desktop if they use either the licensed copy of Proscan, or the Free Client only Viewer.

The ability to stream audio, as well as locally archive, playback, and log the data, as well as adjust the radio from a remote location is making ProScan one of my favorite pieces of software to have on my computer.

This past week, Proscan released version 12.2 of their commercial software, and the free version is now at 10.0.
Here is the list of updates:

Version 12.2  Newest Version 05/29/17
  • Fixed - MotoTRBO Frequencies LCN values was limiting the length to 2 digits.  Now length can be up to 4 digits.
  • Fixed - Find Duplicates database utility was causing program crashes.
  • Fixed - Source Client intermittent disconnects.
  • Fixed - Source Client Auto Reconnect wasn't working if connection was lost.
  • Fixed - BCD536 Wi-Fi Audio Gain 15 db wasn't consistent on all four audio services (Recorder, Source Client, Web Server, & RSOIP).
  • Added - Option "Activity Display Back Color".  The display background color will change with scanner activity.

To download a copy of Proscan, visit [link] . The full version of Proscan is available as a 30 day free trial. If you like the software, please support future releases by purchasing a copy of the software. A single license will work on two computers. For those looking for the free version, look to the bottom left corner of your screen for the download link.

** Monitor Long Island, Inc and W2LIE.net have no affiliation with Proscan software. We are simply just big fans of their product. **
