As of June 14, 2014 at 1 PM, Firescan.net Monterey receivers (BEU Local, Monterey Cmd 5, Monterey Cmd 5, Monterey Analog Overlay / County Fire) are now connected to a 5-element Yagi antenna. Should reduce interference from San Mateo County on Cmd 5, improve south repeater coverage on BEU Local)
As of May 25, 2014 at 2:30 PM, Firescan.net now includes a scanning receiver that records Cal Fire Command 1, 2 and 4. This receiver is not available in the "by page" list, as no paging tones are sent on this channel. Note that during major fire activity, this channel may be hard to follow and/or may be manually locked to the most local incident.
As of May 23, 2014 at 7:45 PM, Firescan.net now receives three additional channels that cover all of Monterey County, including the cities of Monterey and Salinas.
As of July 5, 2012 at about 6 PM, Firescan.net's server has been moved to a new rack, requiring a shutdown after 1691 days of continuous uptime. During that time, there is a short break in recording. In addition, all the receivers (previous Hamtronics R301 VHF boards) have been replaced with narrowband-capable Motorola M1225 and all channels are set for narrowband receive. There will be one additional shutdown in the next few weeks to put the new rack in its final location, but otherwise we should be good for a while.
As of the 2011 July 4th weekend, the tone decoding software has been upgraded for improved accuracy when tones are quiet or distorted, and to improve the DTMF detection speed for faster tone sequences. Some decoding will be unavailable while re-decoding of the past month or two is proceeding, but recording is unaffected.
