LISTENING TO FEEDS OF DISASTER COMMUNICATIONS
GEM sometimes takes ‘listen-only’ feeds of disaster communications, either via VoIP or even directly via HF/VHF/UHF radio gateways or online receivers. Therefore it is worth checking on the GEM Echolink conference (node HB9SLM-L) if you are interested in monitoring live emergency communications.
If you connect to a GEM conference during activations, you may find that your station has been ‘muted’ to prevent interference to the emergency communications – we ask that you accept this restriction. If you have traffic to contribute under these conditions, please make this known to the GEM Net Control Station by typing a suitable message into the Echolink chat box.
WEB STREAMING OF GEM AUDIO
From time to time, GEM may set up a web stream carrying audio from the GEM Echolink conference server or other radio source. This may be at the request of a legitimate group or agency, or for press and information purposes.
The web stream is not provided on a continuous basis, but is activated as required. At these times, a link to the stream will appear on this page.
THE WEB STREAM IS CURRENTLY: OFF
STREAM URL: http://myradiostream.com/gem or http://my.gem-int.org/stream.pls
At all times, the establishment of this feed is at the discretion of GEM. For example, if communications traffic is of a sensitive or secure nature, the audio may be disabled.
GEM encourages interested parties to monitor activity via this stream. This prevents inadvertent interference to emergency traffic, reduces confusion for the NCS and lightens the bandwidth demands on the GEM servers.
