Local police and fire departments as well as county sheriff offices use Rangecast to not only follow their own radio traffic but also to keep tabs on neighboring cities, towns and counties.
With Rangecast you have a virtual recorder of your department's radio traffic online and available anytime. Go back in time and listen to your department's radio calls from the previous night, for example, with all the dead-air removed. Or listen live when you're out of town or without your two-way radio.
A county sheriff may wish to use Rangecast to listen to radio calls from adjacent counties as well as from all the local police, fire and emergency management agencies within his own county.
A local police or fire department may wish to be able to listen and review all their own department's radio calls but also that of all neighboring towns as well as county and state law enforcement and/or fire agencies.
Rangecast is the perfect solution to these needs.
Note: For complete capture of all radio transmissions on a particular channel, such as your own dispatch frequency, you must dedicate a single Rangecast scanner to this special channel. If all radio receivers are scanning for transmissions from other agencies, you may miss some of your own department's calls.
