MRL Thompson Falls Print E-mail

powered  by  Pi_Streamer/Starlink  technology


Stream is back and running sounding similar as before. 

LISTEN - WinAmp, iTunes, XMMS
LISTEN - RealPlayer
LISTEN - Windows Media Player 9 only

  LISTEN - Using the Scanner Radio App for Android and iOS

(We highly recommend the Scanner Radio Pro app for Android @ $2.99 - it works better than TuneIn as it is optimized for Scanner Streams and has several useful features that TuneIn doesn't offer)


Equipment in use:

Motorola GM300 Mobile Radio, Diamond X50NA VHF/UHF Antenna @ 10ft, LMR240 Coax, ARR Preamplifer

Raspberry Pi Linux micro Computer running Darkice shoutcast encoding software.





Current Frequencies in the scan list:

  • MRL Road 1 160.335 (Secondary Priority Scan)

  • MRL Road 2 160.950 (Primary Priority Scan)

  • MRL MOW    161.340

  • MRL YARD   160.395

  • MRL MRAS CH7 **

  • MRL MRAS CH8 **

** NOTE: When the receiver is monitoring a MRAS Conversation, it is simultaneously monitoring the road channel for active and will switch over to that for the length of those transmissions (Think of Priority sampling in a regular scanner)
