Boy its been a long while between drinks..
Heaps going in my work and family life, but i have now studied and passed
my amateur radio licence (foundation) and am VK2FADJ... I have this month reinstalled computers and antennas to facilitate an
better online stream at radio reference and via the front page of this website...
you can even access it via a iphone which is amazing when you think about
it, via the web or an app connected to radio reference....
Please email me with things you need help with and ill see what i can do some updates will be coming
when time permits
Well a few minor changes, A new
live stream and webcam adjustments
Police have become unlistenable!
with full encryption for Newcastle, Hunter is unchanged. Its been quiet, so reset some scanner profiles.
Cheers for now
Well we have very busy personal
lives, I married in 2006 and we had twin babys in march 2007, work has been very invovled since 2005 and garry has been working
tirelessly with SES and other emergency services AND working his day job too. We hope to get some things done in the next
12 months and hope you can support and send us your info
happy new year
I cant believe I have not done
an update here for nearly 12 months. its been a long year. I moved from Newcastle city to the lake, Garry has had a near death
illness and damn it the police went digital! So we have entered the new age of digital scanners and well its a boost to the
hobby in my opinion. the website is well rounded now and formed well, updates are done as needed and the scanner chronicles
and pics have slowed as a result of lack of interest. BUT we have met, emailed, taken calls from many new and old scanner
listeners and well its the best feeling to be acknowledged for your efforts especially if you dont get paid for the work.
lets grow again and hopefully do an update here sooner than later! and hope someone brings out a digital scanner to purchase
locally, instead of have to have them imported.
Well the popularity of newcastle
scan has impressed garry and myself and this month we enter a new era. we are expanding and fine tuning with the addition
of our exclusive domain and carving the scanning chronicles to thier own site.
we are looking forward to a busy
summer and plan to provide more frequencys, scanner reviews, recordings, pictures and stories and maybe some video
too... so thanks for your support since the 2001 and keep coming back to what we hope will be the biggest scanner web site
4/2002 Updated Intro.
When i started this site i had
a desire to make it a comprehensive resource as there are to many "secret clubs, keeping those freqencys hidden unless you
join their club, but the freqs are out there and not long after i started the site an old friend who has written scanner guides
loved the idea and freely gave all his work and together now we bring NEWCASTLESCAN this is a jointly owned site of
Garry L. and myself Mike J. (see photos down below). We have tried to make the site into a huge Ezine that
you would happily buy! and for free, we have been trying to record interesting events, get photos of incidents and provide
you with things you can talk about! go thru every page, download as much as you want. We will continue to provide different
and interesting things as time permits and hope you will support us and tell your friends about us!
Original Intro Jan/02
As a resident of one of the states
most busy radio activity capitals I thought it was time for a new scanner web site focusing on Newcastle. I have been involved
in scanning for several years and have collected a lot of data and i now will focus on computer controlled scanning in particular
with the Uniden UBC780xlt. I have a lot to do yet and id love some photos to put up, some articles about your favorite area
of interest, the freqs you receive and your general location. I should have software reviews and weblinks and i hope to place
a frequency plan for the 780XLT
using andys program in excel format. I want a simple site and it still to be informative.
