    If you can get KBPS on a good stream, yes, they’re great. I haven’t been able to, unfortunately. But thanks for the twitter feed. That’s a good source too.

    Police/fire radio exchange provides interesting clues as well, I linked to couple of Internet scanner sites on my page, http://palacionews.blogspot.com/
