    It needs a better antenna. Signal is still barely breaking squelch. Thanks for trying though.

    Thanks again for the scanner! I still think it can get better. I ordered longer, shielded audio cable to be able to move the scanner away from my computer, RAID hard drives, and a big mess of various kinds of wires. The scanner was very clear when I tested it away from the computer.

    Hey folks – someone generously donated a better scanner and you will no longer hear the familiar “hum” in the background. Letting you know so you don’t think it’s offline! Further signal improvements may be coming. I have to get the scanner further away from my computer and a mess of various kinds of cables and wires.. to much RF and EMI.

    Thanks, Mike. I’ve adjusted my scanner the best I can. I also put a device in the signal chain to reduce the hum, which is still present. It’s a hand-held radio shack model connected to an a/c adapter. I’m sure there are better models out there. Please get in touch through the contact link the top menu if you can help/sponsor and thanks!

    Sometimes LPD sounds really terrible with lots of static, like it’s barely breaking squelch. Other times the audio is really low. I have lots of extra scanners I could sponsor you.

    The hum you’re hearing should be well underneath the signal level, but of course it’s more apparent during radio silence. I have a filter on to reduce it, but I can’t seem to eliminate it. My scanner is in a high EMI/RFI environment, and it’s a budget model with a wallwart power supply. Hey, if someone wants to sponsor a better one…:)

    I’d really like to. I provide the radio for the Lynn Police stream, but others are providing State and Fire. I looked for someone providing a web stream of marine frequencies and could not find anything – but that was when I was setting this up. Please send any links and I’ll see if I can get permission to add them here.

    In order to provide another stream, myself, I’ll need some more hardware, which is $$. I’ll accept sponsorships, though!:)

    Since we are on the coast + also have so many ponds it would be nice to have a patch for the Marine or Coastguard.
    Thanks, Ippi from Ippi’s Bait & Tackle Shop

    LPD scanner was offline for a short while this afternoon but it’s good now. “Somebody” knocked a plug out. (ahem)

    Audio on LPD will be low, but at least it’s clear again. The scanner output needs to be louder, but it’s as loud as it can go. I will look for a pre-amp to stick between the device and the pc – one that costs less than the other option, a new scanner.

    LPD changed from mxlr to RadioReference as well. Always come here and click the badges to listen, because services may have to change or links may update.
