    Some of you may remember firescan.net. For many years it was a great resource providing recorded audio from many different fire dispatch frequencies. Very handy to go back and review radio traffic. About a year ago it was transitioned to scanrad.io with better receivers and an improved web interface. Unfortunately, during the first hours of the CZU fire complex, the owner’s home in Bonny Doon and most of his radios and computers were completely destroyed. Six hours later his site on Empire Grade was burned taking the remaining equipment with it. I thought for sure it would never return. To my surprise, he is bringing everything back, now using SDRs, and as of this morning our local fire dispatch channels are back up. Please support the site if you can. It is a great resource.

    This is a very useful resource. Thanks for sharing. I really like the 2-tone decode column. That makes it easier to zero in on locally relevant traffic.
    Was this at the WB6ECE tower site? That was a tragic loss to the region. They’re still 20k short in their rebuild fundraiser: https://www.gofundme.com/f/rebuild-the-empire-grade-tower-site

    My best guess is yes, that was one of the sites that he used.
