Radio feed issues fixed / Hampton goes encrypted

For those of you not aware, we’re providing RadioReference with audio feeds of both the Hampton Police Division and Newport News Police department broadcasts. If you’re interested, see the links on the right side of the page.

The machine streaming the audio got in a funky state and started handing of some very choppy and unreliable audio and needed a swift kick, which it got. Things are back up and running now, hopefully for a while.

Update: The Hampton Police Division feed is no longer being provided to Radio Reference or being carried by this site. The City of Hampton had decided to take advantage of P25 encryption on all police talkgroups (no longer just tactical channels) which unfortunately can’t legally (or otherwise) be decoded.
