     Aug. 10th Storm Damage

The severe storm that ran thru Eastern IA and IL has done severe damage to many homes and business's....   ILOWASCAN did not escape this damage....  High Winds in excess of 120 MPH (recorded at my home) have caused damage to several Antennas and feed cables.... also a surge has taken out the primary server and 1 scanner along with 2 of the 5 line distribution amplifiers....  My insurance does not cover this so some loss in quality of Radio Traffic may be observed....  I apologize for the inconvenience and hope that I can somehow replace/repair as quick as possible.

Stay Safe Everyone!

 With cost rising and having issues with some using my feeds for criminal activities....

  I am on the fence as to keep feeds going or offer them for subscribing members only....   

  Possibly a monthly renewal with new passwords unique to subscriber...  $2.99? $1.99? just not sure ATM...
