Southwest Oregon Live Scanner is now ONLINE for the 2014 season.
The live online scanner is located in Grants Pass, Oregon and is a primary resource for monitoring forest fire related radio traffic via streaming on the web. This feed will cover Josephine and Jackson counties and the agencies that serve them. During a large fire event the scanner will be switched over to monitor only forest fire related issues, during other times it will scan all types of emergencies such as medical issues and vehicle accidents. I have a cable internet connection and a dedicated audio streaming server, I strive to maintain 100% uptime, however after weeks of constant running the server will bog down and sometimes freeze (It's a 10 year old XP machine), if it goes down it will be reset as soon as I can get to it. There are a number of ways to listen to the scanner, see below.
