Looks like it's down again, for almost a week now.  I understand general situation, but any way we can get it back up and perhaps come up with a plan to reduce the extended downtimes?  I really enjoy the feed, especially that guy that works late at night!

I second that!!!  At the same time this feed did not seem to broadcast strong at all!  Hope the owner is OK.

Still no ETA.  I have delivered all the equipment to set it up - just trying to coordinate a date when the contact on the other end can work with me to get it online.

Delays in being able to get to the site and getting an antenna mounted.  This will not happen until at least January.

Any progress? It's been January for four days. I really like this feed, and am on the brink of shelling out $80 for a handheld scanner. Please keep a penniless me from doing so...

By the way, I'm less than 7 miles from KEWR and currently go plane spotting there, so I would gladly volunteer any assistance should it be necessary.

Project delayed until February due to lack of access to the new site.

I understand the new EWR feed is on it's way.  Here is a site to get tower coverage in the mean time.

http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/?ctid=1777

In the little radio app you can select wich feed from Essex County, NJ you want (police, fire, airport)

I new to the radioreference site, but it appears as if they cover many many areas over the country, mostly police and fire.  I was surprised to see EWR.  The Morris County feed does not contain MMU, nor does the Bergen County feed cover TEB. 

I think this could be a great resource to get coverage in areas lacking, which may already have coverage or the ability to provide it.

Dave,
Any update on the Newark feed?  I assume the new site is clear of all the snow from the storms a few weeks ago. Looking forward
to having it back up.

Took a bit longer to arrange and get to installing than I would have liked.  But it will be solid and will expand and improve improve.
