|12-1-2013, The server was down due to a router failure
from 9:15 PM on 11-20-13 until 11:00 AM on 12-1-13.
8-17-2013 to 7-10-2013, The server has been up and down for over a month now. I finally purchased a new RAID controller and two new hard drives. Hopefully this will solve the issues once and for all.
8-14-2013, It looks like Weather Underground finally fixed their Flash Players for the Police Scanner and Weather Radio. Both Flash Players are now working under XP with IE8.
6-25-2013, I just discovered that the Police Scanner and Weather Radio "Flash" players are not working. These come from Weather Underground. I have contacted them and they are working on the problem. In the mean time the MP3 players should work fine.
5-17-2013, I just recovered from a power outage caused by a raccoon that committed suicide on the light pole across the street last night about 12:30.
3-22-2013, Been having more Router problems. The web page was down for a while on the 21st and 22nd. Everything should be back up now.
3-6-2013, The Router locked up from the snow storm. The web page was down for a few hours.
2-13-2013, This web page address has changed to www.dixonweather.com. You need to replace your old bookmarks. Please bookmark this page ONLY. The web pages linked here have addresses that may change in the future.
2-12-2013, The Scanner has been picking up some weak interference that makes it appear as if it is unsquelched. I have not found the source yet but tightened up the squelch to see if it helps.
you have problems connecting to the MP3 Police
Scanner or the NOAA Weather Radio try copying the Link URL (Right click
Link) and pasting
directly into your Media Player's Open URL box.
Windows users should try downloading Winamp in place of the Media Player. Winamp will display Meta Data like the current Scanner Channel & Frequency that is being received.
If you are using an Android phone and your built in Media Player will not play either MP3 audio stream try downloading XiiaLive Lite from the Android Play Store. This is an excellent free streaming player that will also display Meta Data like Winamp.
NOTE: When using any Android player please be sure to hit the Stop button when finished listening. This is because these players will keep running in the background and will continue to use your data.
is a privately operated web page by R. Chris Davis from Dixon,
IL. I receive no payment of any kind for the web page or weather
station that feeds it.
These web pages are served by my own server that is built from 15 year old junk. My internet connection is standard home broad band from the local cable TV provider. Due to this please be patient when failures occur. I try to check things out every day to be sure it is all still working.
Please e-mail me at the address below with any questions or comments. I DO want to hear from you with your constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement.
