Glad you posted about the Amber Alert site.
I’m using WGET to download the US alert once per hour.
Here’s my question: I see there is an active alert but the mp3 I get is the AmberAlert Promo ID. How long does the active alert mp3 remain online? Do they switch back to the Promo ID when there is no active alert?
I used the URL (http://amberalerts.loudcity.net/amberus.mp3) found in the PAL script for downloading the amberus.mp3 file using WGET.
WGET works great! Downloads on schedule everytime. I suppose I could run the URL as a stream in ZaraRadio but I’d have to rely on the “Silence Detector” since the file length probably varies.
