Does anyone know if we will ever get the combined borough dispatch audio feed back online?
Also will Manhattan be added to the feed ?


Thanks

Mystery scenario-  all three desk scanners in a firehouse suddenly stop picking up their home frequency.  They can get all the other boros.  The rigs in quarters are able to pick up the  home boro.  This goes on for about 24 hours, then all of a sudden the home boro comes back on.  Said firehouse is about a mile from the transmitting tower.
Anyone have ideas?

In process of changing servers out.
Had one new server just running for last month to see if there were any issues.

Today moved fire citywide and Manhattan ems to one of the new servers. Will slowly move feeds to new servers at a new location and then renovate the current site.

Some photos of a new audio setup. This will handle feeds while we renovate the current setup.


APC power strip
Cisco switch
Monitor for administration


3 HP computers, all exactly the same. This way parts and troubleshooting is simpler.


5 radios linked to one PC


Another 5 radios linked to a second PC


Radios are attached to audio filters and the feed USB sound cards in a hub

Lt Bendick, THANK YOU for ALL you do for ALL OF US. I must be honest about this. "I really have NO IDEA of what a cisco switch cord is, or 3 HPs with 1 PC, or even that USB Sound Card thing your talking about".

But I SURE DO KNOW THIS. I sure appreciate what you have started and continued to maintain for SO MANY OF US. For me it started with this web site. I was able to read and write about my hobby that I did for maybe 50 years or so. It was all about the FDNY.

Then I got to talk to many other great guys who were into this thing the same way I was. We were all on the same page. But by far, one of the highlights to this whole thing was when I got to meet your father. Yes, it was Retired FDNY Fire Captain John Bendick. We met at a restrauant not far from his house. I started to talk to him and I found out that he was a FDNY War Years Firefighter, who worked some of the BUSIEST FIRE COMPANIES of my days of buffing these areas. Since that time as you know, I have become very good friends with your entire family.

I also got to meet other GREAT GUYS as well, that you are aware of. ALL GREAT GUYS, some who are on the FDNY now like yourself, some GREAT guys who retired from the FDNY like your father, and some GREAT FRIENDS who are into this thing and buffs like myself.

When I moved to my home way back in 1975, I was NOT able to listen to the FDNY on my scanner. I was spoiled because prior to that the FDNY came in loud and clear in Bridgeport where I had lived. But moving to my new home in Eastern, Ct was just too far away. Despite buying a home that is about 300 feet above sea level and putting up a large outside antenna on the roof, I still could NOT pick up the FDNY. For the next several years, I just had to "write it off". Unless I made a trip to NYC to watch guys like your father work or visit my family in Bpt, listening to the FDNY was NOT possible.

Now, because of this huge expense that I'm sure you put out. Plus all the work involved, we all can hear the FDNY on our computers, cell phones etc. And it can be heard all over the world too. Our buddy "Irish" can confirm that.

You have NEVER asked any of us for a dime. But because of what you have done for so many of us here, "you have changed our lives forever and I'm very confident that I speak for many here".

Thanks Tom,
Uncle Wilfred D

Mr. Bendick,

As someone who has no other way of listening to FDNY, I sincerely appreciate you making the feeds available on Broadcastify for the world to hear.

Thank You and Happy Thanksgiving!
