alternative alternative

I'm using Winamp, but these should work with Windows Media Player really.

I've been listening on and off and its not as exiting as Railroad Radio.

You'd think that military traffic would be encrypted in this day and age.

It hasn't been exciting for the last few minutes. When I logged on there was unexplained gunfire for a while.

It was more active earlier today. I have seen rumors that they have tried to move lot of chatter off the air or to more restricted channels. I understand none of the tech/operational side of that, but that's what I've read on various sites. Every once in a while you hear someone trying to make a connection. Earlier there was a radio check around of a bunch of hospitals.

There's a guy in a fuel truck trying and failing to get a response now.

There also was a stolen ice cream truck, ice cream music blaring, loaded with people and guns, looting and using the truck to carry off their "supplies."

Was it marked "Mr. Whoopee"?

A wiki with more mirrors. And a link to a forum post by the guy running this.

(Apparently this is coming off some kind of complicated system involving repeaters. The reciever that everyone is listening to is actually hundreds of miles away in Northern LA.)

Folks who don't want to listen can join irc.freenode.net, channel #interdictor-scanner where some folks are transcribing the transmissions.

Maybe it's not a good idea ..imagine what if they turned into looters...for some reason it doesn't seem a fantasy anymore these days.

Found this on the shoutcast directory, dunno if it's the same because it's dead air for the past 5min.

What a coincidence - just moments earlier I got an email from a friend with this (dark) joke:

What is the difference between Baghdad and New Orleans?

The Louisiana National Guard is protecting Baghdad.

Sounds like some people are getting into the radio system and assigning missions to national guard crews.


Yeesh.

Listened to this extensively this morning.

Around 11 (MDT), this call came in (from memory, not a transcript):

Bulldog 3: Defender 5, Any word on the med evac? Still got the pregnant woman here.

Defender 5: Negative

Bulldog 3: 10-4, Know anything about giving birth? (very worried tone)

Defender 5: Negative

So you're saying there was one? I didn't catch it.

" Multi baby pickup at Superdome, over. This is a priority pickup, over."

"Looks like we have 18 babies..."

Listening to this is heartbreaking.

Aren't they in Iraq?
