QRV 4 Louisiana

Ever won­de­red about the Natio­nal Guard / Poli­ce in Lou­sia­na and the on-going res­cue operations?

I don’t know about the Sta­tes (=> it is for­bid­den to lis­ten to police/fire department/rescue/etc. radio com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons (BOS) on 4m and 2m band over in Ger­ma­ny), but someo­ne hoo­ked up a radio scan­ner to the net some years ago and now we’­re able to fol­low the radio com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on of the Natio­nal Guard over in Loui­sia­na. As far as I hear it now, their com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on seems to be qui­te disci­pli­ned.
Of cour­se the­re are many more radio scan­ners online. I espe­cial­ly like tho­se VHF ones for they usual­ly cover local radio traf­fic. Nice!

…And the inter­net is one of the rea­sons why my inte­rest in ama­teur radio/ham radio stop­ped way back in 1996 when I first got online. Next time I am in Kenya, I’ll take my HF/VHF/UHF radio scan­ner with me and look for a nice, high all­ti­tu­de sham­ba in Limu­ru whe­re I’ll put up my antennas :-)
