Sometimes on the weekends when there is little MilAir activity
I'll stream the Volusia County (Daytona Beach, FL) talk-group.

Scroll to down to see list of Callsigns you'll hear

Here is the setup for live audio streaming. In the picture below you'll see 10 scanners, however only the 6 scanners (all BC-789-XLT's) on the middle shelf are actually being streamed. The audio out of each of these 6 scanners feed the New Communications Solutions NCS-3230 Multi-RX device. This is the device on the bottom row with 6 red LED's across. The NCS-3230 has a single 'record line' output which is feed to the soundcard of the laptop computer you see at the right. This laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L505 which has a 2.2GHz CPU, 4GB of ram and running Windows 7 operating system. The laptop is running Microsofts Expression Encoder 4 software (you can see it running in the picture) which handles the streaming to the internet. You can see picture of the entire shack by Clicking Here.

I get alot of questions on how I have my antennas arranged, if I have 10 antennas since I have 10 scanners. Well, no, I don't have 10 scanner antennas, I only have 2. Each scanner is connected to either a Stridsberg MCA208 or MCA204 amplified multi-coupler. See photo below. The multi-coupler isolates each scanner's antenna input from the other scanners as well as amplifies the RF by about 3dB to overcome the loss of more than 1 scanner connected to the same antenna. In the photo below I have have the MCA204 (4 port) coupler connected to a Create Log-Periodic 5130-2N antenna. The MCA208 (8 port) coupler is connected to an Antennacraft Scantenna (Model ST-2). For a review and more info on the Stridsberg Multi-Coupler I have a review Here.
