Live County Fire Comms using Zello

#1 Post by WQWP554 » 24 Mar 2019 20:28

There are many scanner feeds out there these days and all serve there purpose and allow us to be selective as to what we want to listen to. I myself enjoy connecting to the Cape Scanner feeds while mobile on my phone linked through the blue tooth to my truck stereo. Just haven't gotten around to throwing a scanner in the truck yet..lol
So I have been playing around a bit with Zello to chat with friends and I have found that transmitting radio comms through zello has added to the game. (Another tool in the tool box). What is neat is I can also recall and play back any traffic that I may have missed . There are many channels that offer radio comms and I wonder if anyone has or would be interested in starting a list of known scanner audio channels on Zello.
I'll start the list,anyone else?
Zello radio audio channel ,(Cape Cod Fire Radio) which offers just Barnstable County Fire Mutual aid /Ops channel coverage.

Keep in mind, these come and go, having used Zello [years ago] and now slowly getting back into it [altho a PITA, during a meeting]

A couple more that I've found:

Middleton Fire
Saugus Fire
Fitchburg Fire
Portland Maine Fire
Portland Maine Police

It is too bad there isn't a better way to keep track. The Zello channel search sucks really and is filled with so much random crap it is a pain to use.

I read this and remembered that I hadn't re-installed Zello on the desktop after a Windows crash. The Attleboro Area Fire Feed is back online. There is a widget available to channel owners that allows it to be embedded on a website and I was trying to aggregate the active feeds at the following page: https://altradio.xyz/Forum/misc.php?page=LiveAudio but it is a bit of a daunting task. If people could make suggestions for channels that have the widget enabled, or, if you run a channel, add the widget support and let me know, it would be appreciated.

I listen to Cape fire
Plymouth County Control on Plymouth County Scanner
BFD 1 (Boston Fire)
BFD 2

I also have Norfolk County Control and will make it public this week. Just a little more testing. Quality is important.

Metro Fire is on it's way to being a feed as well.

It is nice to be able to listen to the departments that are important to us. But as I have learned don't give your scanner away. It is still a good friend.

Announcing Norfolk County Control Zello feed. On Zello search for channel named NCC MA and add to your contacts.Anyone can listen only moderators can talk unless trusted. It is intended to be a listen only channel. If you want to chat about incidents use MAS COMM for incident chat.

On NCC MA you will be listening to Norfolk County Control district 4 dispatch channel 1, Fire ground repeater channel 2 and fire ground repeater channel 5 radio operations.

Questions and comments can be posted here or email me at n1kxj@hotmail.com

Enjoy,
